Why "Battlestar Galactica" must self-destruct
"As the end — and Earth — draw near," says Scott Brown, "'BSG' has seen its moral clarities cloud over. This was always going to be a hurtling, one-way trip to enlightenment and/or oblivion. And like all the fantasies born in the Bush age, the show is programmed to self-destruct: Consider 'Lost,' the purgatory-as-therapy sci-fi ropes course that has declared a 48-episode limit on its desert-island wanderings. In fact, it's 'Lost' creator J.J. Abrams who'll be relaunching 'BSG's' sunnier predecessor, 'Star Trek,' with a prequel due out next year. By then, we'll have a new president-elect and, one way or another, a new age, with a new mood — and a new T-shirt."
