Elspeth and I arrived late to this series, but we really liking going through the box set. It looks great, is well acted and takes on some serious issues (religion, identity, politics, war, terrorism, torture) in a sci fi setting. Less cerebral than Star Trek TNG, but more expensive, unremittingly grimmer and less cosy. Unlike Lost, it also knew when to stop. Recommended, if not reaching the heights of The West Wing, our favourite. I read that there is a good spin-off/prequel called Caprica from the same executive producer, Ronald D. Moore, Star Trek TNG alumnus. It's The Wire next.
Enjoying Tony Blair's autobiography, A Journey. He writes in an informal style, but I find it very readable. Don't let the reports of his night of lust with Cherie put you off. He comes across as even more driven that I had imagined.
