Yes, we finally got suckered in. And literally watched every single Battlestar Galactica disc, from the miniseries straight through to the end of season three in direct succession. That’s a LOT of late nights, yo. I blame my best friend, Danielle – who on the surface is a glossy, polished, professional with a great sense of style. Bubbling under that surface, though, is a HUGE sci-fi nerd.
Which is, I guess, one of the reasons we are friends.
I don’t claim her sense of style, but I definitely have her nerdiness. Star Wars? Love. Harry Potter? Adore. And Firefly? If I weren’t married already, (and he wasn’t a fictional character on a short-lived television series – slight problem), I would follow Captain Reynolds to Reaver territory and back with lovesick puppy-dog eyes googling the whole way.
So, it was only a matter of time before we jumped on the BSG bandwagon. I’m thinking the main reason we held out is the fact that we HAVE NO CABLE, and the fact that HAVE I MENTIONED WE ARE SO FRICKING BUSY WE CAN’T GET OUT LAUNDRY DONE, much less keep up on a TV show… besides, urg, my devotion to American Idol 4 months out of the year.
But here we are. Almost there. We just found out who 4 of the 5 last Cylons are, and SO *NOT* SURPRISED. Anyone who didn’t see that coming wasn’t paying attention. Or, um, wasn’t watching it every night for 3 weeks straight.
We won’t fully catch up till it’s released to video since the Sci Fi channel does not have all of season 4 online right now (are they TRYING to piss me off?) but we have read the recaps and will start staying in on Friday nights like the rest of you nerds on Twitter. With the hopes of having a grand bash with our best friends and their cable TV and their huge flatscreen for the series finale.
So. Fellow nerds. Who do YOU think the 5th Cylon is?
