Salon: With its hot, androgynous heroine leading the remnants of humanity against evil, God-fearing robots, "Battlestar Galactica" is boldly re-creating sci-fi TV. By Laura Miller.
'Cause, like, this time Starbuck's a girl, and where in the original series everybody had shag cuts, now they're all up to date looking.
Ms Miller, please. If you have to gush for three pages, do me the favor of not starting off by trying to divorce yourself from the genre fans in a sorry attempt to gain some critical credibility. You are talking about a program about robots who can make themselves appear human. I don't ask you to repeat that to yourself over and over while you're enjoying it, but you might say it aloud once or twice before you start typing. Turning a 70s space cowboy into an androgynous female for the Noughts is a "creative" decision made by people who study Q ratings for a living. It's no more a breakthrough than having Cedric the Entertainer play Ralph Kramden is a landmark in civil rights history.
