Second season of Battlestar Galactica to premiere this summer

SciFi announced yesterday that the second season of Battlestar Galactica, which has been getting good ratings for them, will begin airing this summer. Good news - and it's also confirmed that the entire cast will be returning. They're scheduled to shoot 20 new episodes, and production will begin next month. A quote from the story states that "The series, which premiered on Jan. 14, has been averaging over 3 million viewers per episode and has quickly become SCI FI's highest-rated original series and has received unprecedented critical acclaim." That's also good news - I really like it, and I hate it when good shows that I like get screwed over. The show is also apparently very popular among file sharing folks, ranking 9th on the list of top 10 most downloaded shows. Even if you don't get into the whole file sharing thing, you can go to the Galactica part of the SciFi site and watch the first episode legally - and commercial free!
