Battlestar Galactica Battlestar Galactica seems to have lost some of its momentum this season. It has certainly lost some of its viewers -- less than two million people tune in each week. SciFi Channel has only ordered 13 episodes of the next season. I still enjoy it, and I still enjoy Smallville. But I've been watching the Gough and Miller Smallville (season two) on DVD, and I must admit that the Steven DeKnight Smallville is not as good -- a fanboy favorite, but not much to offer people who don't read comics. Still, the episode "Justice" drew more than five million viewers, so there must be a lot of fanboys. New episodes of Smallville have been pushed back several weeks, so brace yourself for reruns.

Heroes The good news is that Heroes just keeps getting better and better. Heroes currently has more than 14 million viewers every week. The most recent episode, which broke a lot of new ground and focused on one story instead of many, blew me away. At this time, only one new episode has been announced for March, but stay tuned. That could change.
