The Manicured Nerd: If I Ran OPI

I like nail polish. I mean, I really like nail polish. And I’m a huge nerd. Those two things might not seem like they go together, but life is weird. Continue reading The Manicured Nerd: If I Ran OPI

Catching up on Television Culture

Growing up, I always missed out on the current show or the most popular movie. Okay, I can’t say I always missed out. I did watch The A-Team and 21 Jump Street, Knight Rider, and Star Wars. I even went to the movies to watch Adventures in Babysitting. But I never saw Sixteen Candles, Ferris Beuller’s Day Off or The Breakfast Club. In the 90s, I was aware enough to have watched Friends.

Ladyghosts of TV Past: Battlestar Galatica: 4.07: “Guess What’s Coming to Dinner”

I get the reference in the title this time! Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner is a film from 1967 about an interracial relationship, something still illegal in many states when the movie premiered. So I think, based on the title, we can wager a guess as to the main plot of this episode – people meeting people they’re not expecting to meet.

Ladyghosts of TV Past: Battlestar Galactica: 4.05: “The Road Less Traveled”

We’re very much in the home stretch of Battlestar Galactica! Getting closer to Earth every day! Previously on Battlestar Galactica, Adama sends Helo and Kara to go find a way to Earth; the crew aboard the Demetrius (Kara’s ship) is getting restless; the rebel Cylon ship (full of Sixes and Eights) is under attack from other Cylons with no resurrection ship nearby; TORY AIRLOCKS CALLY (oh, for the halycon days of Cally shooting Boomer), Baltar’s not a priest, but God loves everyone because they’re perfect. Continue reading Ladyghosts of TV Past: Battlestar Galactica: 4.05: “The Road Less Traveled”

Ladyghosts of TV Past: Battlestar Galactica: 4.04 “Escape Velocity”

Previously on Battlestar Galactica, Baltar is performing miracles, curing sick kids… and sleeping with Tory. Whoa, Tigh poisons Ellen, Tigh says that the last thing they need is for Cally to find out that they’re Cylons, and then Tory airlocks Cally. Continue reading Ladyghosts of TV Past: Battlestar Galactica: 4.04 “Escape Velocity”

Ladyghosts of TV Past: Battlestar Galactica: 4.03 “The Ties that Bind”

At some point, we are going to need to talk about this season’s opening credits, which tell us that the Cylons have a plan. As soon as there is evidence of said plan, that is. Previously on Battlestar Galactica, Tyrol, Tigh, Anders and Tory are Cylons, Lee’s giving up military life for politics, Kara’s been given a ship to go find Earth, D’Anna (hey girl!) was boxed for trying to find out about the final five Cylons, and Gina the Six removed whatever it was that prevented the centurions from independent thought, so the toaster Cylons killed everyone on that baseship that lobotomized the raiders (namely, Cavil, Doral, and Simon).
