Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

That's entertainment.

Slowly but surely we're catching up on Battlestar Galactica. Episode four, "Resistance" is a real pressure cooker. With Commander Adama still recovering from his injuries, President Roslin under arrest and Colonel Tigh's imposition of martial law going over like a lead balloon, the public is getting restless. On top of that, Tigh's thrown Chief Tyrol in the brig on suspicion of being a Cylon.

I'm enjoying the way the series is portraying the burden of power, whether it's shown to weigh on Roslin, Adama or Tigh. These characters' internal conflicts are portrayed in a really compelling way and I feel for them, even when they crash and burn in slow motion, like Tigh seems to be.
