BSG Spinoff

Yeah, I'm way behind the times, but I've been sooo gritting my teeth since I heard about the BSG spinoff that I haven't looked into it at all.

Well, I finally did look into it and found out that it takes place fifty years before, on Caprica, and concerns the development of the Cylons.

Yawn.

What part of "Star Trek: Enterprise sucked and the fans hated it" did they not understand? Skiffy is progressive, folks, not regressive. Even if you're, like, Harlan Ellison, and hate women, skiffy is still chronologically progressive. That means don't fucking go back to stuff that we already pretty much know about.

Geez, how hard is that to figure out? But then, that's why BSG is sucking now: because they're going back over stuff they feel they hadn't fleshed out sufficiently the first time around, like exactly how Starbuck's fingers got broked, or exactly how Apollo felt about his grandfather's profession. Guess what? I don't care. Somebody needs to tell these cryptosquares that the writers who worldbuild best are the writers who worldbuild least. Capeesh?
