Now that Battlestar Galactica is done, Where’s my Who!?

The season finale of Battlestar Galactica wasn’t all touchy-feely like the 1980’s version where the heroes Starbuck, Apollo, and the rest land at modern Earth. Instead, they arrive at pre-civilization, pre-language Earth as far as humans are concerned. I’m sure this fits nicely with the Micheal Cremo (of Forbidden Archaeology) crowd who already believe that there were advanced humans millions of years ago -though the BSG crew arrives at around 180,000 years ago according to the show.

Some of you might recall that I’ve been a fan of the “re-imagined” Battlestar Galactica series. I wrote a short essay in response to Dirk Benedict‘s criticism of the show and Katee Sackoff’s portrayal of his former character, Starbuck. Dirk’s essay was called “Lost in Castration.” He predicted the series’ failure if memory serves. Far from it, the series did well for the SciFi Channel and a following of fans from around he globe were drawn to it.

Here’s a clip of David Letterman’s Top Ten List which includes the whole cast. Along with Starbuck, I think Colonel Saul Tigh was my favorite -Boomer/Number 8 was cool, too. I will not admit to searching “Grace Park” in Google Image when I found this clip!

So, what’s up with Doctor Who?
