Friday Night Video: Sci Fi Edition

I saw the mini series for this several years ago on vacation and was blown away by it. It was dark, fearless and brutal. And never saw the rest of it because of lack of cable at home. Thanks to the series coming out on DVD, I was able finally watch the entire run. The finale was a bit of a let down and I'll have more on that later other than to say that they used deus ex machina a little too liberally for my liking. Yes, it's science fiction and a certain amount of disbelief needs to be left at the door but how they brought Starbuck back from the dead? Please.

Anyway, the soundtrack was one of the standouts of the series. Unique and distinctive in it's own way, it would never be mistaken for some other show.
