Battlestar GalacticaWhy does this show make me moist?

  1. It’s a drama, space-suits aside.
  2.  It’s full of beautiful people, but built around a character everyone calls “The Old Man,” with a face like a pumice stone.
  3. Sexy Cylon… the Cylon models are like Spice Girls — each one has its own persona… Wait, where was I?
  4. Ah, yes. Sexy Cylon dresses like a Jersey stripper named Champagne, in her formal-event finery.
  5. It doesn’t have plot twists for plot-twist sake.
  6. It doesn’t try for the ever-popular “social commentary” angle. Instead, it shows the good and (more often) bad of human nature. But I don’t feel like I’m watching an after-school special.
  7. Gorgeous Cylons! (And I mean the Centurions)

All in all, this is a brilliant fracking show. So good,  it leaves me with absolutely no curiosity about the original Galactica show.
