Thoughts on BSG

So I was at my in-laws the other night for dinner. Because my father-in-law and I are men of science, we were watching the Sci-Fi Network. Ironically, they were showing some show about vampires, which have nothing to do with science, but that is beside the point.

The point is, during the commercial breaks, we saw the same commercial for Battlestar Galactica played over and over about ten times.

"Do you watch that show?" asked my father-in-law.

"I was really into it for the first two seasons, but by the end of the third season, the show went off the rails for me."

"Was that when they found out about half the crew were robots?"


"You know, I can get into a show about people fighting robots, but when it is robots fighting robots, what is the point? I saw that show before and it was called 'Battlebots.' The only thing we need robots for is to need to make me a sandwich."

"Can I put this conversation in my blog?"

He is a great guy. I am blessed by having little-to-no conflict with my in-laws.

Robots and robots... yeah not so fun. But what about DINOSAURS and robots?

My problem is that once I do get into a show I'm notoriously bad about becoming it's chief appologist. There are few shows that I start watching, get hooked, and then give up on later... even if they turn into shit. Although it's happened more recently. I finally stopped watching... oh what was the name of it. Something. I can't remember now.
