Gah! I have missed episodes of old-skool Galactica on SciFi! *mutters* They keep changing the day.

... there's some guy walking around, commanding a spaceship while wearing a frilly blouse and waving a cane. It's like a History Channel / Sci-Fi crossover. This show is awesome.

Can't remember that episode? It's isn't the one with Fred Astaire is it?

Have had no luck tracking down that fic. :(

I just caught the very end of it! Sheba was in the infirmary. *shrugs*


And here I was freaking out about Ed Begley, Jr. ;)

That and a robot dog... my God, what DOESN'T this show have?

*scratches head*

Not the one with Patrick McNee?

Sheba was in the infirmary? Was Apollo there? Was there angst?

Fred Astaire played Starbuck's dad in an eppy, can't remember what that one was either. Crap memory.

OH MY GOD, that was Fred Astaire!?!?? *boggles*

Apollo was there! And Adama was all "WE LOVE YOU. BE AS OUR FAMILY." and I was all "I'll bet this would be awfully sentimental if I knew what had happened during the rest of this episode!"

I'm horribly tempted to 1) buy the DVDs and 2) go through the series and write snarky recaps. I think only about three people on my flist have ever seen that series, though, so I don't know if anyone would read them. ;)

Must. Acquire. Old-skool. Icon.

Nobody does it better...

Found this interview Anne Lockhart (Sheba) did... http://www.blast.net/hart/Interview.htm

If we'd only had a second season!

*heads desks*


Those were the days you got canon ship, and they had proper chemistry and everything!

I made one! You can have it if you like it!

I'm not great with the witty icon sayings...

Eeeeee! *claps with delight* w0lfstar told me about this one over the phone while I was away and I am all psyched to see it. Sheba ROCKS ALL. And the interview was awesome! I had no idea she was of the Lost In Space dynasty. *grins*

And also... I found it interesting that they didn't know it was the end when they shot the last episode.

*downloads icon with great joy*

Fred Astaire was in "The Man with Nine Lives"

And the answer to your last question is: a second season!!

The con artist who pretended to be Starbuck's daddy! *whees*
Little Red: sga - shepwhore kirk - lizmylittleredgirl on May 19th, 2005 08:45 pm (UTC)
Didn't he end up actually being Starbuck's daddy? Which is SO the best part. Heee.
Rose Wilde-Irish: Rodney and Radekrosewildeirish on May 19th, 2005 09:46 pm (UTC)
I think he started it out as a complete con, and then it turned out he might actually be Starbuck's daddy, and then either he wasn't, or there was no way of knowing for sure.

I will have to watch it again when I buy the DVDs (or, er, when it airs again, if I'm being fiscally sane). I thought there was a scene with Cassie at the end where she's all "But you have to TELL HIM!" and he's all "NO! you can't TELL HIM! It's better if he doesn't KNOW!" or something equally dramatic.

But it was late, and I was tired, and I will need to watch again.

*whistles into the abyss* w0lfstar, do you remember?
w0lfstar: i know that you know by phrenitisw0lfstar on May 20th, 2005 12:50 am (UTC)
Since I have watched that episode around 3 times now, I can say that he DOES turn out to be Starbuck's dad. (but turns out to be super-cool dad by telling Cassie not to tell Starbuck that so that Starbuck doesn't quit being a warrior.) So, yes, he IS Starbuck's dad. eeeeeeeeeeeee!
Little Redmylittleredgirl on May 20th, 2005 02:17 am (UTC)
Starbucks dad is FRED ASTAIRE!! No wonder Starbuck's got all the moves. :)

*wishes I were near you*

I taped it, but have yet to see it. I should have reminded you! *hits self over head*

(dammit, I still haven't been able to find good old-skool icons. The only one I found so far wasn't worth it...)
Little Red: sg - x-files - lizmylittleredgirl on May 20th, 2005 02:24 am (UTC)
Re: Noooooooooooo!
I wish you were near me tooooooo!!

But I suppose it's good to have a few eps I haven't seen yet. It keeps the magic alive a bit longer. ;)

And I KNOW! Total lack of old-skool icons. If there were screen caps, I could probably beg someone to make pretty iconage, but I haven't found any images anywhere, either. Bother.

Re: Noooooooooooo!
Well, then we NEED to get DVD somehow to GET screen caps to MAKE icons. *plots* (and uses skeery hardcore new!apollo icon

Re: Noooooooooooo!
Your icon is so skeery and hardcore that it really doesn't look like Apollo. Who... isn't really skeery and hardcore. Hrm.

YES! DVDs! And... technology and knowhow to make screen caps!

Mmmm. Bedtime. So much spam. *zzzz*

Re: Noooooooooooo!
I might need to get a cuter Apollo icon.

We have the technology! We shall find a waaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Oh, right, you are on the east coast. Go sleep!
