In continuing my irrational celebrity crush series, I have decided to coincide this week's crush with the return of my new second favorite television show, Battlestar Galactica. ("What's first?" Why, LOST of course. Are you even paying attention?)

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 rebelled.
They evolved.
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.

Wait, that's not the one.

Here it is:

Wait, no still not right.

Getting closer. Here, try this one:

Ok, that's better. But still not quite right.

Here, try again:

Hmmmm. Nope. I'm not sure that that's the "person" that I'm looking for. Perhaps...... Ahh, yes. I 've found it:

Thatta girl. So, you see what drew me to this show.

Excellent plot development, of course. Why? What were you thinking?

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 Boomer:

President Roslin:

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.

My god that man is wrinkly!

Your blonde babe is pretty nice... but she'd be better as a brunette.

Starbuck is a girl or a boy??????

misty: thanks for hopping by. you nailed it. i lie and say i watch it for the hot girls, but it's all about the olmos.

sra: she would look good with no hair at all. so i imagine she would be a decent looking brunette. there is another incarnation of Six known as Gina, and her hair was almost a reddish brown, not wuite a brunette. (ok. i'm done talking about hair color.)

sol: very good question. a long time ago, there was a show called Battlestar Galactica. and there was a character named starbuck. he was the best pilot on the whole ship.

fast forward to today, and the character of starbuck was made into a woman for the new series, and is played by a woman named Katee Sackhoff.
