Gawd-Awful Teevee

Back when I was just a young 'un, walking to school in my bare feet uphill both ways with the snow knee-deep even in May, there was this show called Battlestar Galactica. It warn't the same show you kids watch, now. This 'un had unicorns and pig-ignorant Cylons and really awful space battles, and every inhabited planet had humans what spoke the same language as the heroes.

Yup.

Even the Teevee Guide channel described it as a "Big-budget sci-fi flop that was more than a bit reminiscent of Star Wars."

Wal, I dunno 'bout that. If you're comparing it to Episode II, mebbe.

But we loved us that show. We loved it like we love a big ol' tub of horrible stinky cheese. Sometimes, ain't nuthin better than a heaping helping of stinky cheese. Besides, we didn't have all them reality teevee shows to load up on. We had to get our gawd-awful teevee where we could, and we was grateful for what the good lords at ABC gave us. Grateful, I tells ya.

You kids these days just don't have no appreciation for classic cheese.

They don't make 'em like they used to.

When Hubby was obsessing over the new (and recently ended) BSG, his dad was reminiscing over the old version.

It was interesting to hear their discussions about the similarities and differences.
