This is a fraking public service announcementDaniel Radosh
So here's the crisis: The third season of Battlestar Galactica begins next Friday, October 6, on the SciFi Channel. Like many folks, I got addicted to BSG on DVD and high definition reruns on Universal HD (which will be showing the "story so far" recap at least one more time on Saturday, if you need a refresher). A couple of times I looked at the reruns on SciFi, and I was appalled at how crappy they looked: small, blurry... low def. It's simply one of those shows that's just better -- much better -- in high(er) definition.
Posing as a journalist (no comments from the peanut gallery), I sent an e-mail to the publicity office for NBC Univeral and learned that BSG Season 3 will be coming to Universal HD on January 7. I'm dying to see what life (and war) on New Caprica holds, but I just know I'll enjoy it more if I can only hold out three months. Fortunately, I don't work with any geeks who will want to talk about each episode on Monday morning, so spoilers shouldn't be a problem, just waiting. What about you? Can you wait?
