And on the Fourth Day the Internet Gave Me Evil Toasters: "Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome" Episodes One and Two
My response was less than eager. I had little need for remakes of low budget television rip offs of Star Wars from the 1970s. I mean I had standards. I was busy watching a television remake of a bad 1990s science fiction movie. But then I got the worst cold of my life, a flu-nasal-ebola hybrid that wrecked me for a week. I couldn't talk. I couldn't walk. I couldn't eat. I could not function at anything approaching sentience. Ba-doop. Ba-doop. But I could watch "Stargate".
And by the end of the sickness there was no "Stargate" left and from the bowels of the recommended section at the bottom of my TiVo emerged a choice. I could venture forth from my sick bed and try to learn to live again, or I could watch "Battlestar Galactica".
It healed me my friends, it healed me.
And now in this post-modern age, where all the joys of the past go to die, mere fertilizer for new wonders that our 2003-selves would not recognize, I don't need a TiVo to give me more "Battlestar Galactica", I need only my precious precious Internet access.
