Battlestar Lesbianica


This cracked me up because it’s almost word-for-word how I was mocking the recap just a few hours earlier.

And there’s very little exaggeration here: SciFi made a big point of this entirely gratuitous plot point in at least two separate recaps; and in the final recap, just 10 minutes before the end of the 2-hour movie, the fact that two of the characters had had a lesbian relationship was the only plot point they included.

See two women kiss! In fact, since the DVD contains the “unrated” version, they might kiss twice!

Arlo and Troy

For your responses to an “Arlo Page” comic from just before the switchover, please click here (and when prompted for a password, enter the first name of Bill Clinton’s most well-known girlfriend, case-sensitive).

We’ve also added some additional “Arlo” material, including a CIDU I’m not entirely sure I want explained.

(One more comic was added mid-morning Thursday)

Filed under: Bill Bickel, comic strips, comics, movies, Robots, Shortpacked, Transformers — Cidu Bill @ 1:56 am

So we’re eating dinner last night and I happen to mention I have no idea what the concept of the Transformers even is, and my wife says “How can you not know this? You read Shortpacked, don’t you?”

…maybe you had to have been there.
