If you’re wondering what the hell the title of this post is talking about, you should tune in to catch the second season of Battlestar Galactica tonight on SciFi at 10PM Eastern. Battlestar Galactica is not really all about robot sex, although that does happen from time to time — although one guy is apparently only dreaming of his robot sex. But whatever. The series (a remake of a show from the 70s) is about the Cylons, a bunch of humanoid cyborg/androids/robots/whatever that humans created and, of course, they decided that they wanted to exterminate us. The populations that weren’t nuked into oblivion are left to flee from the Cylons in space (where else), forever being pursued. I am glossing over many, many of the more intricate details of the story, so check out the Battlestar Galactica homepage where you can watch the finale of the first season to get some context. I probably should have sent out this reminder when they were replaying all of the episodes on SciFi, or when NBC broadcast several episodes in HD this past week, but I think you’ll live.
Despite all of the ridicule I get from some of the other staffers in TVgasm’s Los Angeles offices, I am definitely going to tune in. And since there appears to be sufficient interest among readers, I will also be doing the recaps this summer as well.
