I won't bore everyone with it, but I am on the Battlestar Galactica bandwagon.

So far...'tis amazing. I am happy.

Also, believe it or not, Enterprise has made a 100% change-of-course turnaround and has actually been good
this season. Well, some of the complaints people have had about the cast simply aren't going to go away, but
nothing can be done about that. But the horrible, awful direction it'd been heading...well, they've clearly
dropped all that.

Thank goodness.

For those of you who like Trek and are at least a little open-minded, it is worth a second try. For those
of you whose biggest problem was how the Vulcans were acting, they dealt with that in-character, and
told a pretty cool story while doing so.
Bah, Showtime canceled my favorite show ever.

Not that these online petitions ever do any good, but here it is:

Richard Biggs passed away. Here is JMS's message. There is little I can say about this.

From: jmsatb5@aol.com (Jms at B5)
Date: Sat, 22 May 2004 23:43:05 +0000 (UTC)
Lines: 35

I was awakened today with several phone calls from cast members and Doug to
pass along the terrible news that this morning, Richard Biggs passed away.

We're still gathering information, so take none of this as firm word, but what
seems to have happened, happened quickly. He woke up, got up out of bed...and
went down. The paramedics who showed up suggested it was either an aneurysm or
a massive stroke.

His family members have been informed, and all of the the cast have, as far as
we can determine, also been informed.

This is a terrible loss for all of us. Richard was a consummate professional
but more than that he was an honorable, stand-up guy. If he gave you his word
on something, you never had to wonder about it afterward. He was always
helpful and supportive of all the cast, even those who only came in for one
episode, always with a ready smile and determined to do whatever it took to
make the scene work. He was, quite simply, a terrific guy, and everyone here
is just devastated at the news.

More word as this develops. We may try to have some kind of fund raiser to
help give whatever assistance may be helpful for his kids.

We all miss him terribly.

For those who missed it--and have Showtime (or access to someone willing to record), Dead Like Me's first season is rerunning and it will be followed closely by its second season this summer.

It really is a fabulous show; I urge anyone who has Showtime to at least check out an episode or two. Or anyone who wants to come by and watch the ep I have TiVo'd before it autodeletes.
