Battlestar Galactica

I believe this may be the best series on TV period. Even if you don't like Sci-Fi this has consentantly been a top notch series.

It has nice twists turns and politics.

Also who are the cyclon top 5? Starbuck? Baltar?

i like the show when it started.  i wasn't sure they could do justice to the original, but they did.  then they did something in the season opening that really angry me off.  i have not watched it since.......i did tape it......i will probably watch it and catch up.  i was just really disappointed in the first show of the season.
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

It is by far the best sci-fi series going right now. IMHO of course.  Really well written.
