Battlestar Galactica

I never liked the old Galactica: too cheesy. I don't think I'm going to like the new one either: too pompous.

The only thing I want from sci-fi is cute ideas. If the ideas are cute enough I don't care if the sets wobble. Galactic war against a race of robots is not a cute idea.

Since the enemy are soulless robots we can kill 'em guiltlessly. They have no civilians. Ain't it great to be a soldier!

Honour, self-sacrifice, beautiful bodies.

Blood and iron.

OK it's just a TV programme but.....
