I know this might not be the biggest news but damn, I loved that opening theme song. It is one of the only ones that I still get excited about whenever I hear it. And with all the shows these days using already famous songs as themes its nice to think back when some were original. I don't know if I am not the only one who cares, but being a fan of the show this hurts.
I bitch about it because it seems that so-called "critics" end up bending more towards the will of the mainstream masses rather than actually critiquing shows. It's a giant crime that Battlestar has won no Emmies, that it isn't more recognized....
