Two TV peeves and other random observations for you to discuss amongst yourselves.
First, have I ever said how much it annoys me that it’s so hard to tell whether a Cylon is a human or not? I mean come on. Assuming that BSG humanity is even at scientific parity with us, the idea that it can’t be deduced quickly and easily is absurd. Their spines glow when they get randy! They astrally project their consciousness across vast distances when they die. Nebulae melt their brains. Are you telling me these things can’t be picked up with a catscan? A blood test? Exposure to some Cylon porn and a close eye on their spines? Please. (Yes, yes, I know Baltar sabatoged the test for discerning who’s a Cylon…but still).
Second, something bothers me about the new plotline in Lost. How can Henry Gale, the leader of the Others, have a tumor on his spine if the island has magnetic/magical healing powers?
Also, I think the death of Mr. Eko (Adebisi from Oz) is a great loss. Did anyone notice how mechanical the black smoke cloud thing sounded? It was like the Cyclone from Coney Island was working in the background.
Update: Ahhh…From a reader:
“Second, something bothers me about the new plotline in Lost. How can

But he’s not on the island, remember? From the episode
Riiight. But this does raise some questions. Like, why not move to the special island with healing powers while you figure out what to do about your deadly tumor. Still, good point.
