A few days ago I mentioned that I only had one complaint with Battlestar Galactica, but really there are two.
CG cylons piss me off everytime they're on screen.
There was a time when I thought photorealistic computer animation was the coolest thing ever, but I am so over it. These days I would much prefer the "guy in suit" cylons of yesteryear, or even some Harryhausen-esque stop motion animated ones. (Seriously, how cool would that be? The set decor is all like faux retro, what better to accentuate that look than Harryhausen cylons?) Alternately, the human-cylon hybrids are pretty awesome as-is, why the need for fake looking ones?
OH! I just thought of another complaint, kicking the total up to 3. I absolutely hate the little bit they do after the "previously on Battlestar Galactica" stuff where they show rapid fire clips of things that are going to happen in this episode. Seriously guys, stop doing that. I'm watching the episode already, you don't need to "entice" me in any further, just let me watch the damn show in peace. Sure, seeing how any episodes I'll ever watch will have been timeshifted, I'll be able to just skip past it, but that's not the point.
Dear Battlestar Execs,
I should not have to work to avoid spoilers, and the fact that you're putting them in the opening credits is just plain mean.
