new television obsession

I was up until something like two in the morning last night watching the Battlestar Galactica miniseries on DVD. I really didn't mean to, but I assumed that it would eventually stop at a reasonable point since it must have aired as separate episodes. I rented it because I had heard that this new version was surprisingly good and when I saw part of an episode of the new season on television it looked good -- the aesthetic, the incredibly attractive cast, and the absence of the campiness from the original series; so obviously I needed to start watching from the beginning. Because I'm a completist like that, and watching a television series on DVD (or OnDemand, etc.) is fun.

And the miniseries turns out to be beyond decent. Now, I of course, need to watch the first season. Strangely enough, it can be purchased only at Best Buy until late September when a different version will be both for sale and for rent. My habit of getting obsessed with random things might just lead me to buy a copy and then try to sell it on the internet when I'm done.
