The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. I just finished the third book (although I’m reading from the omnibus, so it doesn’t feel like I’ve finished anything much) after having heard about the series for ages, and after having seen the movie. It is exactly what I expected it to be. I am enjoying it. It is not surprising me, and it is precisely what I expected.
Battlestar Galactica. I’m only a few episodes in, but good, smart sci-fi is frequently predictable, if delightful. That said, I think one of the reasons I loved District 9 so much is that it managed to completely take me by surprise. Also, back to BSG: So much teal and orange. This blog post has ruined a tiny bit of my life, including, apparently, the enjoyment of BSG’s color grading.
