Battlestar Galactica Belongs On Friday Nights

At one time in my life Friday night was a big deal. I would go out, drink to much, get wild and crazy, etc. Now, although I'm loathe to admit it, I'm more or less passed all that, with the occasional exception of course. What replaced my carousing ways over the last few years was Battlestar Galactica. Yes I know that is pathetic, but at my age it's not so bad.

Every Friday night I could look forward to the show and that gave me a great deal of satisfaction. Now for some reason the powers that be at the SciFi Channel moved the show after its mid-season break to Sunday night at 10.


This has not only killed what little social life I normally have, but the show has to much energy to be viewed late on Sunday. Sunday at 10 is for shows your mom would like to watch. Father Dowling Mysteries or Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman, not a great science fiction epic.

And to think, my first reaction when offered a DVR (i.e. a non-TIVO brand TIVO) was "Why the heck would I want that? I'm sticking with the tried and true VCR. It hasn't failed me yet."

Now that I am utterly addicted to my DVR, I don't care when they put Battlestar Galactica on. I'm going to watch it on Saturday at 10:30 in the morning.

If DVRs were around in the 60's, the original Star Trek would probably still be in production.
