Stream tip: "Battlestar Galactica"

Just when you thought it was safe to leave your winter hiberation, here comes another binge TV suggestion: "Battlestar Galactica." I'm late to this party, as usual, but BSG holds up years after its series finale (2009). Note: Fans of the original series might be miffed to see major changes to the Galactiverse, but to them I'd recommend hanging in. The Cylons still attack; the humans are still trying to found a new colony on Earth; pilots still carry out crazy missions - now we just have better effects (for which the new "BSG" has received several awards). Bonus: like "Star Trek" before it, "BSG" places women in positions of authority and they do a damn fine job of it. Bonus #2: Edward James Olmos as Admiral Bill Adama, Galactica's fearless leader.
