Battlestar Galactica
I've been reading good things about that new Battlestar Galactica series.

Wait a minute. When a 36-old man takes the time out of his day to write about Battlestar Galactica in his blog, that person might be struggling with content issues, or something worse. It's bad enough to admit publicly that Star Wars and Indiana Jones are your favorite movies, but when some you start hoping that some sorry excuse for Star Wars over 25 years ago is being remade and worth watching, well, you're just pushing it I think.

That being said, I was watching the previews and it looks pretty cool: The fighters are an updated take on the ones from the original series, which I watched all the time. Remember that Starbuck and Apollo from the original? Those guys were awesome. The Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) was a good looking guy and ended up being Face on The A-Team (which also rocked in it's day, BTW).

OK, but the point of this was that whenever I hear the words "Battlestar Galactica" and I'm hearing them more and more this year, I think: Battlestar Galactica...Space Glow...Putty. Can anyone remember this? They actually sold Battlestar Galactica branded silly putty-type product that glowed in the dark, and there was a really dumb commercial with an god-awful song that went along with it.
