Just in case any of you are feeling too loyal to the original Battlestar Galactica to check out the new series (although I cannot for the life of imagine why that would be, as the original was so cheesy that I avoided it as a 10 year-old) I give you the original Starbuck, whimpering about the new Starbuck being recast as a woman. Washed up, bigoted asshat.

The new Starbuck, portrayed by the lovely Katee Sackhoff? Hot as hell. And a much more interesting take on the character, too boot.

I'll be over here, handing out babies, as we women do. Jebus.

I've only seen the cut-for-NBC version of the miniseries, and while it has it's weak spots, it is certainly better than the old Mormons-In-Space version seems today. It isn't as good as the original series SEEMED when I was 6, but that isn't anybody's fault.

(Seeing Zoic's CGI for Galactica makes me miss Firefly even more.)

And how DARE he invoke Katharine Hepburn in the midst of he neanderthalic rant? She was being decisive, bold, angry as hell and puffing cigars when all he could suck was a pacifier.

PS: speaking as someone know to smoke cigars and flirt with girls (which, come to think of it, so are you), I'm pretty sure it isn't criminal...

I was thinking about mentioning his use of the Name of Kate as well, but you put it much better than I would have.

And can I point out that Alan Alda, the poster boy for the sensitive, feminist man, played a hard-drinking philanderer for more than a decade? Hawkeye Pierce is proof that flirting with women needn't be misogyinist. If Benedict and his little Starbuck are seen as boors, it's his fault, not feminism's or society's...

Ah, Hawkeye. A finer role model of outrageous, irreverent, unabashedly sexual masculinity you'll never find.

"He's probably a fag. Lookit how much he likes girls!"
