I watched the British version of The Office and became a fan - as almost everyone. So I decided to see if the American version was as good as the original. A doubt feeling emerged at the first episode, since I still was with the original - and awesome - characters in mind. They were not just funny, but peculiar, inimitable. I didn't let this impression ruin my experience, though. Gladly. The American version is obviously inspired in the British version, but they are not the same. Simple like this. The American characters are not mere counterparts of David, Tim, Gareth, Dawn... They are hole new versions of the kind of people we can easily find in any office. And equally inspired versions of these workers. Since I've lost several episodes when they aired for the first time, I'm now at the third season, and I will surely see all the episodes through the end. More than one time...
Battlestar Galactica (2004–2009)If it's not a 10, I don't know what would be
14 March 2010
I usually read comments, but decided to write one about Battlestar Gallactica. It has been a while since I last felt so eager to know the destiny of fictional characters. And even more time has passed since I experienced the emotion that the last episode of Battlestar gave me. The series is not about ships and robots. It is about humanity, a very complex matter - and a matter that interests me a lot. To deal with all the aspects of human personality, the producers couldn't have chosen better actors. I've just watched the final episode and don't want to seem - too - emotive, but I can't help: I'm now a fan of the entire cast, even of those who made me feel a kind of anger in my leisure time...) That said, I think that even those that don't like sci-fi would like BG if they give the series a chance. And I hope they do. Sincerely recommended.
