5.0 out of 5 stars very enjoyable and informative guide, August 8, 2006

This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: The Official Companion (Paperback)
Battlestar Galactica is an amazing show. I'd read all the articles I could, watched and re-watched the shows, listened to commentary tracks, etc, and still wanted more -- trying to hang on until the new season starts. Well, this official companion has been a thoroughly enjoyable read and the it's been informative too.

It starts with a chapter about how the show came back, and then offers lengthy synopses of each episode (and the miniseries)y, with trivia, information about the writer(s) and guest cast and comments from the participants. There are lots of black and white pictures throughout and a center section of color pictures. After the episode guide there are 4-page chapters devoted to each main character (William and Lee Adama, Roslin, Kara, Baltar, Six, Sharon and supporting characters). The volume ends with chapters on production design, visual effects and music. There is a forward by Ronald Moore and an afterword by David Eick, and lots of input from the cast and crew throughout the book.

I enjoyed this very much and look forward to the season two guide. It really helped me cope with the between-seasons doldrums, and made re-watching old episodes even more fun.

Highly recommended.
