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'm downgrading "pity" to simple "feel mildly bad," then

Fair enough :)

Again, I don't know if he's threatened by women, but I think it's clear he's threatened here by loss of identity.

That's possible. Whether or not he's actually threatened by women is, I admit, just conjecture on my part. I'd bet money though.

Oh, it's obvious once you think about it, isn't it? Because Hatch is all about BG, while Benedict is all about Benedict.

Yep. Asshat.

No bet.

Just look at his main character roles -- Starbuck and Face. Both are cigar-chomping (Freudian much?), handsome/charming, lying, egotistical, womanizing opportunists, and -- by his own admission -- essentially elements of his own personality.

I'm just saying his woman issues are a contributing factor rather than a primary factor in this situation.

Asshat.

Word.
