Barbara Nicolosi has some interesting reflections on Battlestar Galactica in two separate posts.
Frakking with my brain
BSG is great but is it good
Here perspective is interesting since she is a screenwriter and not really a SF fan. For those that don't know, Barbara is a Catholic and the former director of Act One in Hollywood which provides "Comprehensive training and mentorship to form the next generation of Christian artists and professionals."
The new Battlestar Galactica has a large following withing St. Blogs which includes myself and as a certified SF geek it is great to have great writing and storytelling that is of the same quality as some of the best ever television series.
