Hmm...this is a hard one. But let's go with this:

I wasn't an immediate convert to the new Battlestar Galactica fandom. But in the long, long hiatus between season 3 and the beginning of season 4, I watched the miniseries and then launched into season 1. One of the first things I noticed was the music. Lots of taiko drums, very little orchestra. Until the last two episodes of the first season...when Baltar has his visions of the opera house on Kobol, a gorgeous string orchestra piece plays. I was hooked.

And then, I found composer Bear McCreary's blog. First, he would do general entries on the character themes in the show, which eventually became full fledged detailed musical analyses of each episode. And as music became more and more an integral part of the story, I got hooked.

So, last year, when Bear McCreary and the Battlestar Galactica Orchestra performed in San Diego during Comic-Con, I decided I had to go. And I went, and it was awesome.

The icing on the cake? He's also scoring "Human Target", which premieres tomorrow night, and "Caprica", the BSG prequel show, which premieres on 1/22.
