Can battlestar galactica save your marriage?

Filed under: Activities: Babies, Sex

I was always under the impression that television was ultimately doom for a married couple, especially if they had kids or were ever planning on having sex again. One couple takes on that debate in a recent article from MSN TV News.

According to authors Adam Berliant and Martha Brockenbrough, Battlestar Galactica--the new one, not the old one we watched as kids--is the Reese's Peanutbutter Cup of programming. That's a tall order! The concept is really that BG is the one program both genders can agree upon. There's something for everyone, whether it's cyborgs or sex.

As far as I'm concerned, the more time I spend in front of the boob toob the less time I spend doing anything with my husband, including getting along. We don't really watch a lot of television because we're rarely together (he's in school), I'm busy writing, and we have a baby we're trying to not let watch TV until he's two.

That said, everyone we've ever met, it seems, raves about Battlestar Gallactica. We recently had a party populated with a rather diverse crew who all agreed we must immediately put the other seasons of BG on our Netflix cue. So be it. But I don't think it's going to save our marriage (not that it needs saving). In fact, had we gotten involved in what I hear is a rather intricate web of characters and stories, we might not be expecting in October! Perhaps we'll actually get to watch them when we're on maternity leave (and paternity leave).
