  • This is where the concept of Cylon androids was REALLY born!

    This two-parter was part of a four-hour "Best of..." marathon, on SCIFI Channel, yesterday. And, I loved it, just as much as I did the first time I saw it!

    The funniest part was the running gag where everybody used the same sound effect to describe Andromus' bodyguard to the cops.

    "And, it had this one red eye that kept going back and forth. SHOOM! SHOOM! SHOOM! SHOOM!"

    Almost as funny was Kent McCord (Crichton's Dad on FARSCAPE) and Barry Van Dyke (son of Dick) pursuing Andromus and his bodyguard in white tuxedos. Thank the Lords of Kobol it was Halloween!

    Most important of all, of course, was their prevention of the broadcast that would've betrayed Earth's location to the Cylons. If only the Good Guys could have been just as effective in preventing "BSG: The Remake!"
