I watched an episode from the first season of Miami Vice this morning, and then I watched last night's episode of Battlestar Galactica this evening. Both shows, of course, feature actor Edward James Olmos as the commander, of the vice squad in the former and of a fleet of starships in the later.
And he's amazing in both. But, even more than that, he's just... awesome.
Edward James Olmos has always been one of my favorite actors, even before BSG, though this current series has given him the role of a lifetime, and his performance has been the role of any lifetime. It's criminal that he hasn't even been nominated for an Emmy for best actor for this show. There's nobody on TV who can even come close to the work Edward James Olmos has been putting in, every week, for the past four years.
He's just... awesome.
So that's why I've taken it upon myself to create another blog... the Hall of Awesome, an Awesome Hall of Fame. And Edward James Olmos is the first inductee.
