Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Premiers April 4th

Not many shows produced fathom the depth and complexity of Battlestar Galactica these days, a remake of a 1970's Science Fiction series, wrapped in the mysticism and theological interpretations of Greek Mythology, Persian Zoroastrianism and Nordic theology among other faiths and religions, and presented in a CGI-enhanced storyline that rivals the best of SciFi series ever produced.

Now, before anyone jumps and says, "Another bunch of yarns about long interstellar spaceflight and ridiculous beaming technology, and more dumb tales and fables", just take a look at the awards and nominations that this series has received to date. It's so good, in fact, that a spin-off has been announced, just before the beginning of it's fourth season, called 'Caprica'

This season, sadly, would be the final season carrying the BSG storyline, albeit stretched across two years, but since there's a gigantic hole in the plot, everyone would know how it all began, and what caused the storyline to end the way it did. Mind-probing and intensive in it's twist of Human Mythology, BSG has created a new genre in TV.
