A few days ago, I asked my wife about the Hulu service that she subscribes to, as I was curious about what TV series were available. After a few minutes of browsing through the titles, I realised how much there was to see. In fact, there were many series that I wanted to watch. So, I asked if I could watch it on my computer, and she said I could. Now, a few days later, I have watched the first 7 episodes of the classic Battlestar Galactica.
All 3 Battlestar Galactica series are available on Hulu Japan. I’m starting with the original series, which only ran for one season. I’d watched a lot of it before, but I couldn’t remember much about it. I’m finding that I’m watching 1 or 2 episodes a night, and should finish the first 1978 series within a couple of weeks. Then it’ll be on to the shorter 1980 series, and finally the much longer and more recent reboot of the Galactica universe.
My history with this series hasn’t been very extensive. I watched some of the original and 1980 series on Space channel in Canada, and found it interesting. But I didn’t see all of it. I watched a few episodes of the new series in 2004 when it debuted, but as I came to Japan in 2005, I wasn’t committed to it. But thanks to Hulu Japan, I can watch it all! It’s a veritable BSG buffet!
After the three Battlestar Galactica series, I plan to watch Doctor Who and rewatch the entire original Star Trek and Enterprise series. There are several movies I’d like to watch, as well. The original TRON is at the top of my list. I’m enjoying legally watching streaming videos of TV series and movies on the internet!
