You could always find it, um, *other ways* on the interweb(z)...

It's a fantastic show. You can really tell the folks involved really give a shit. As far as I know, it's also the only current sci-fi show out there that addresses contemporary politics quite boldly. They use lines which are direct quotes from politicians all the time, talk about/show torture, the nature of evil, military occupations, etc. I'm sure if someone didn't watch it from the beginning or come in during one of the top-notch extended space battles the whole thing would seem way too serious to enjoy...
