For those of you unfamiliar with BSG, congratulations! You are not a nerd! Please leave my site immediately. Here's a little synopsis of what Battlestar is all about.
The cylons were created by man.
They look and feel human.
Some are programmed to think they are human.
There are many copies.
And they have a plan.
And for the love of Jesus,
Are they frakking HOT!
My latest celebrity crush is Tricia Helfer, who plays the Cylon known as Number 6, or Caprica Six, or Six, or "that hot chick in the barely there outfits, and who routinely appears almost completely nude," as I refer to her (God bless cable). Here is a picture of her.
Here it is:
Getting closer. Here, try this one:
Ok, that's better. But still not quite right.
Here, try again:
What? You sick bastards! Sure, she's pretty. But come on! To watch a show based strictly on the outward appearance of one solitary character. How shallow do you think I am? There is so much more to this show that I have yet to even touch on.
There's also Starbuck:
And of course, Bill Adama:
Oh, Edward James Olmos, when are we going to stop with this charade and make the mad, passionate love we were born to make together?
So you can see, there is far more than one (very) beautiful character that draws me to Battlestar. There's a whole slew of beautiful people. Honestly, it's a tremendous show with the same amount of, if not more, plot and character development as LOST. It delves into the psyche of people who are on the brink of extinction, and gives a stark snapshot into the state of the human mind. It is extraordinarily dark yet thoroughly watchable.
But I'll be honest. It's mainly about the half naked lady.
