And as for TTSCC, the God-talk has dramatically increased this season--particularly the last two epsiodes. I'm still trying to process it all. I'm wondering if I should wait until next week's season finale (or is it the series finale? We won't know until May) or put some thoughts out there now. We'll see.
I do know one thing for sure: it is intriguing to see a science fiction show so enamored with biblical allusion, religious exploration and God-talk. It's making me think that this genre really is becoming the preferred and safe one in which to explore themes related to faith and God.
