He was a character on "Battlestar Galactica"

/duh

However, if you're truly cultured, you'd understand that I'm referring to Gaius Baltar, one of the central figures in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica TV series.

That's a weird definition of being "cultured".

"Do you watch the same TV shows as me? Cool! We should hang out because we're the smartest people ever."

I don't think I have ever cared less about about a headline and the accompanying article.

Your NSFW comment turned this into an automatic click for me at my work. Thanks for the "warning"!

Me neither. I cared so little for the headline that I clicked and read through the accompanying article and then posted a comment in the thread. That's how little I cared about this headline & article. Leagues beneath me.

I walked by a dead homeless guy once whose characteristics bore a striking resemblance to those of "dead Confederate soldier #342" from Glory. I'm sure you wait with bated breath for my full analysis.
 
2010-10-28 3:39:14 PM  
I just watched the series up to the season 2.5 finale, and the entire time I was convinced, Gaius was played by the same actor who played Dr. Bashir on DS9.

/I gave up the series after that episode, read about the characters online and just watched the series finale. I don't think I missed much.

So Julian Assange is an Angle of God who is destined to guide us to our new Utopian beginning?

Yeah, the truth is a hell of a drug and it's certainly not for everyone.

The best way to tell the two apart is by the bathrobe. Bathrobe embarrassingly short = Baltar.

Touche. But it was so odd I just had to check the article, I got to the pictures and stopped.

I just had this great idea for a movie or TV series. On spec, here is the premise:

"A charismatic, monomaniacal, long-haired computer scientist with a penchant for troublemaking, military secrets, statuesque blondes, and toadying followers takes on the tyrannical government of the USA (or UK). The lead is sort of part Julian Assange or Gaius Baltar, whoever those guys are."

Hollywood: call me!

By the way, I've never watched Battlestar Galatica or V since the 1970s. Apparently they've screwed it up royally. Starbuck's a woman. It's all nerdy myth-making and stuff like some horrible video game re-imagineered by a dork. But hey, like the song says, I can get behind anything.

Why? Because he's asked the DoD to help sift out dangerous material?

To be fair, if you didn't watch and enjoy the new BSG, you ARE an idiot. And if you weren't aware of the show's existence, you live under a rock, in the back of a cave.

brantgoose: By the way, I've never watched Battlestar Galatica or V since the 1970s. Apparently they've screwed it up royally.


Um, no. Well, V maybe. The jury's still out. It feels a little low-budget sometimes. But BSG was awesome. The "OMG Starbuck's a woman?!" thing is old and stupid. It worked. Guess what, Boomer was female AND a cylon! And that worked too.

StefanieSC1: Am I the only one who thinks Julian Assange is going to get us all killed?


Not at all. There are plenty of people more driven by unfounded fear than ethical sensibility. Pretty much everyone who voted for Bush's 2nd term who isn't making money from large corporate investments thinks that way.

Sometimes you can make comments about others that don't say anything at all about them but speak volumes about you.

The have very similar body types and their accent is pretty near identical. I'm kinda' crap when it comes to picking out faces of "normal" looking people (if you're deformed or something you're memorable) but I listen to voices and that's often how I spot someone, I had the same feeling for the duration of the 1st season.

Yeah, the writing was miles better than the original BSG, and it did without the rampant misogyny and Mormon mythology. They also weren't afraid of the word "dog."

If you think that's bad, wait until you find out that the current U.S. president is a Negro!

Watch out Rossini and Mozart -- you've just been bumped from the Metropolitan Opera's spring schedule in favor of a staging of the full Battlestar Galactica cycle. The Cylon centurion puppets by Julie Taymor are expected to be a great hit with both critics and audiences.
