How bad-ass is THIS?

The Battlestar Galactica DVD box set:

“I have no idea what that is but I know girl-repellant when I see it!”
-Peggy, King of the Hill

Welcome back Gary.

I vote “Not badass at all.”

At least the package is cooler than the content.

Battlestar Galactica = crap. I mean, come on, poorly done SF based on the Book of Mormon?

That may be so, but did the Mormons have to fight Cylons led by a human traitor? Actually I think it’s the nostalgia factor here, when you’re 10, spacefighters and evil robots > crappy story.

But the nostalgia factor wears off quickly when you see the same FX shot for the third time in one episode.

Edit: The photo hadn’t loaded. That box is really awesome.

So you are a KOTH fan as well Bub! Cool.

The episode “Gun On Ice Planet Zero” was really good, as well as the one from the Galactica 1981 that had Starbuck stuck on the planet with the Cylon. The universal Studios attraction o nthe tram tour was cool too.

I wonder about the new miniseries. Note cliche’d picture:

Why do all the hot babes in sci-fi have to be killer robots intent on sucking out your brains? How miserable of a puberty-hood do these TV writer have, anyway? Can’t anyone just be happy?

Izzat supposed to be Starbuck? Or Cassiopeia?

I’m not positive, but I think it’s actually some sort of Cylon Terminator-type thingee.

Looks like a porn star.

Are you sure it isn’t a discarded Battlecruiser 3000Ad ad?

Unfortunately, it’s not Starbuck. Instead, they got us a girl Starbuck who looks like a boy Starbuck. Kinda like Boys Don’t Cry.

The babe in the above screenshot is Six, some kind of Cyclon cyborg who doubles as Baltar’s plaything. Guess they figured he would need some kind of companionship if the Cylons eliminate the rest of humanity.

Those poor saps over at Warthog are doing a game based on this. Jeez what a shitty gig that must be.

All this talk of bad cliched sci-fi reminds me of this:

I don’t make dirty jokes like this often, but…

Do I get a choise of what she sucks it out through?

Anyone who’s ever had a kidney stone would never think to ask that question. Ever. Eek.

Nah, the resolution’s too good.

So she basically takes the place of his old wisecracking sidekick Lucifer? That would be too bad. With his inhuman and inexpressive face, Lucifer could ham up his villainy. He was one of the best characters on the show. This gal seems to have adopted the vacant stare prevalent in people playing robots. Lucifer was never anything even close to vacant.
