Dwight is Right

Dwight Silverman has come around to my way of thinking about Battlestar Galactica.

I just saw an extended preview of the forthcoming season while watching the first episode of Eureka, and it gave me chills. I watched the preview 3 times in a row.

Here it is for your viewing pleasure. Here’s the link for the RSS feed.

The Sci-Fi Channel has announced a spin-off prequel, which I am looking forward to.

If you haven’t seen Battlestar Galactica, you are lucky, because you have a treat in store.

Calling Lou Diamond Phillips

I was about to turn on tonight’s Sci-Fi Channel offering of Lou Diamond Phillips dealing with genetically altered bats (which sounds like a movie designed specifically to my tastes), when I came across something better. Engadget either getting owned or owning others (I’m not really sure which) over a dog brain in a dish.

According to this Engadget story, some cat (the human kind, but keep reading and you may begin to wonder) has grown a dog brain in a dish. Now we could make a Sci-Fi Channel offering out of that alone- but there’s more.

What, you might ask, is the highest and best use of a dog brain in a dish?

To play video games, of course. It sort of takes “man’s best friend” to a whole new level.

Now all we need is for the Sci-Fi Channel and Lou Diamond to team up and bring us a movie about the dog brain’s entry into and domination of the pro video game circuit. After the dog brains start winning all of the teens of dollars of prize money, Lou Diamond could play a human gamer who unseats them and returns mankind to its rightful place at the top of the couch potato chain.

Possible sequels could involve squirrel brains that needlepoint, whale brains that rap and turtle brains that play fart football.

Battlestar Galactica

I’ve talked about what a phenomenal show this is before. Many times. I’m about to make a bold statement, but one that I now feel certain about.

This is not only the most well written show on TV now- it’s the most well written show on TV ever.

Tonight’s show set a new high for good writing and edge of your seat tension. When Adama and Cain were deciding whether or not to kill each other, I thought I was going to pass out. If you haven’t seen this show, consider yourself lucky because you have a treat in store.
