So after much cajoling, and a little bit of shaming, I was finally (finally!) convinced to start watching this series.
I just began season 3 and I am blown away.
The show is a masterwork of motivating science fiction, film craftwork, beautiful and evocative characterization and dialogue, and some of the most high-minded amalgamations of history, literature, and philosophy I’ve ever seen.
I went in expecting to plod through a stuffy, bone dry space-soap. I could not have been more wrong.
