I blog about a lot of different things, but when I blogged about Lost throughout the final season it generated a lot of response. I had a lot of fun writing the recaps, and I wished I had done the recaps from the beginning of the series.
As some of you may know, I’m a big fan of the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica (BSG) series. I think it’s one of the most underrated shows of all-time. It’s name, setting, channel it aired on, and previous incarnation all worked against it. If people could get beyond those things, they’d find a brilliant show.
While I like much about BSG, one of my favorite things about the show was how the producers weren’t afraid to tackle certain topics and explore them in-depth. Shows about religion, war, caste system, morality, abortion, family dynamics and more were common. It was a serious show. As a licensed and ordained pastor who was a part of my church’s bio-ethics committee, I was fascinated by how serious topics were woven into the storyline. I was challenged at times.
So say we all.
