While waiting for the fourth season...

I avoid most forms of filmed science fiction, reason being that most attempts underachieve badly compared to written works. The quality of written sci-fi is rarely matched or even approximated by movies and TV series. Notable exceptions are few, and the finest filmed sci-fi for the last few years is without a doubt the reimagined Battlestar Galactica (Firefly would come in close second). The final, fourth season starts in April, and I can hardly wait for it to start. In the meantime, there's a great two part interview with the show's creators about legal system, torture, and morality (part one), as well as economy and politics (part two) in the series.

If that weren't enough, here's a gorgeous Battlestar Galactica reinterpretation of Last Supper on Flickr.
