When Starbuck Wasn’t Coffee

Of course, no discussion of 1980’s Buck Rogers can go far before it turns inevitably to its far superior cousin, Battlestar Galactica. So here, reminisce some more. Oh, if you’ve longed for a fix, how about the soon-to-be released PS2 game, or even better, the Sci Fi channel series, which begins December 8th. From the site:

So we've set out to bring the old boy back to life and give him a new look and a new outlook on life. And we're going to ask him to tell his stories again, from the beginning. Tell them again, but this time go deeper. See, we were young once and when the old guy spun his tales of Apollo and Starbuck, we were satisfied with clear-cut heroes and nakedly evil villains. But we're older now. We've eaten a lot of popcorn over the years. We're ready for a bigger meal.

Sure, I’ll watch … but will they have a Sarah cameo?

Oh … and did you know Battlestar Galactica reflects Mormon doctrine? No? Read here, or here, or visit GalacticaBlog (really!) and judge for yourself.

That's interesting about the Mormon doctrine.

In response to your wondering if the new version will have a "Sarah cameo" ... according to the banner ad/ link & review on, looks like they found a more, well shall we say, modern version of "sarah":

I need to correct my earlier assumption about the leggy blonde on the new Battlestar Galactica series. She's no Sarah, in fact, she is the new cylon. Okay, so I watched the first installment. New improved graphics, ships, uniforms, and that goes for the cylons too. Much more sex, violence -- which made me wonder -- given the Mormon doctrine basis for the original show, how much does this bother original devotees? Hmmm.... All in all, I happily wasted 2 hours of my life watching.
