Catch Up on Battlestar Galactica in Eight and a Half Minutes

Sci Fi's Battlestar Galactica is one of those shows that people always tell me I'd be hooked on instantly if only I gave it a chance. The show returns at the end of this month and, perhaps hoping to hook potential viewers like me just in time, Sci Fi has come up with an eight and a half minute summary of everything that's happened in the show's first three seasons, following in the footsteps of similar quickie summaries of The Wire, The Sopranos, and Lost.

I love that this clip starts basic: "A battlestar is like a great big aircraft carrier, but instead of airplanes, they've got Vipers and Raptors and other cool spaceships." I'm also beginning to appreciate why my Battlestar-loving friends say "frak" so much. Longtime fans, how do you think this measures up? The show returns with a couple of specials on March 28, and the first season premieres April 4, so to catch up or refresh your memory, just

i can't believe i didn't see this post until now. i'm stoked for it to return. the shows from friday did a good job of recapping the 3 seasons and getting fans excited for its return (i love it that the actors from law & order are obsessed with it too). if you haven't started watching this yet - i think there is a 90% chance that you will love it!! i think baltar is my favorite character - he just makes the BEST facial expressions. frak yeah!

Starbuck will be back, right? That scene when she & Apollo beat the crap out of each other was my favorite ever!!! I now understand where fan-girls come from.
