life? art?

Millitary occupation. Puppet government. Insurgency. Suicide bombers. New police forces trained by the Occupation. Abuse and torture of detainees. Curfews. Brutal crackdowns.

I'm talking about Battlestar Galactica, of course. But they might as well call it Bagdad in space.

I'm not sure how long it will be until the humans are on the run again, but the portrayal of the desperation of an occupied people seems like courageous tv right now. But then again, Republicans are not watching this show.

Reminds me of V, remember, from 1983? They changed Nazis into space lizards and had them attack LA. Ah, good times. Btw, it looks like there is a miniseries in the works.
