I can say that some of my favorites have made it, but it seems like Battlestar Galactica has once again been ignored. I just don’t get it. Battlestar Galactica is as good and sometimes even better than the shows nominated. It just feels unfair that the hard work put into Battlestar Galactica gets no recognition.

Friday Night Lights (Pilot)
Grey’s Anatomy (“From A Whisper to A Scream”)
Heroes (“Genesis”) House (“Half-wit”)
Lost (“Through the Looking Glass”)
