So I’m a little late on the ball, I apologize. But still, what better time to write and read a review about what is arguably the best show on television then right now? Probably two days ago when I could clearly remember the episode. Spoilers. Duh.

Color us confused, perplexed and astonished. After flipping through the channels the remote ineveitably landed on CNN. Expecting a audio and visual barrage of superflous graphics and a stately, urgent music bed we’re met with no music, no graphics. Just 4 guys partaking in an intelligent discussion on Afghanistan. In 5 minutes, no mass generalization or completely obvious statement has been uttered. It’s a really intelligent discussion. No one is raising their voice, waving their hands wildly and no inane comments. What is this doing on CNN? On cable in general? What the hell is this doing on TV? I feel like I’m watching C-SPAN, but with better production values.
We’re watching Fareed Zakaria GPS, a lame name that cries for overproduced graphics and soundtrack. Granted, we’ve only seen 5 minutes (not including the end bit, were reader-suggested famous quotes were played), but does CNN still have some integrity left? HOLY SHIT! They just recommend a book? To read? And learn? About society? What the hell is going on? Is this Bizaro CNN? Make it stop — WE CAN’T TAKE THIS!
Oh thank god, the overproduced and melodramatic “Special Investigations” is on now. The world returns to normal.
What the frak just happened? We’re not sure what’s gonna happen next — or what the frak to say. We’ll try anyway. After the jump, Drew’s spoiler-heavy review. Sean’s take will come later. For the love of the Gods — don’t look if you haven’t watched it yet. Thanks to the awesome folks as the GalacticaBBS for taking really awesome screen grabs, like the above.
Excuse my exuberance, but, uh, OMG BSG!!!1!1 We even pulled out the multi-medium for the occassion! After 6 months of rewatching DVDs countless times, our biggest reason to why posting will increase on Fridays returns, and we finally get to see the beginning of the end. Herc over at AICN (Partial Bigot Alert! We despise them) has seen the episode and the screener promises we learn the identity of the Fifth Cylon and I believe him because our DVR listing promises the same thing. SciFi has a marathon going on all day, and even though we own all the DVDs, we’re watching. Watch! Tonight! 10PM! Sci-Fi Channel! Check your local listings for more!
