BSG Predictions and TV show love

I'm sure we have many BSG fans on the DC forums, and with season 4 half-way over, I feel it's time to throw out some predictions.

So, I predict...

Humans and Cylons find Earth at the same time. It is a modern time (though not our current time) on Earth, and a Nuclear holocaust ensues. A small mix of BSGers, cylons, and "earthlings" remain, though without any technology, and only minimal resources. Hera and Nicky are the only remaining children, and thus become a new Adam and Eve, the parents of our current humanity. The prophecy holds true that "things happen again and again..." Meaning that, we are all hybrids!

I really don't care how it ends, as long as it is good. I kind of feel like they're painting themselves into a corner now, though.

While we're here, what other shows are hot within the DC community? LOST is my number one show, by a few thousand light years.

I'm going internally berserk here. I have seen two episodes of the British 'The Office' and nothing more. Zilch. Nada. Nothing.

So I'll take the final option. Unfortunately, it says more about me than the shows.

No Doctor Who on the list?

Dr. Who was on the list along with "Other", but I guess there is a limit to the amount of options.

Dr. Who is getting a lot of love these days from the internet community, not a huge fan personally.

Making polls is finicky. You've got to enter your option, then push "add option," otherwise it won't register. Doing this makes an empty box so it looks like you're going to have more options than you want. If it looks right, it's wrong. If it looks like you've got an extra blank spot on the bottom, then you did it right.

I don't actually watch TV at all because 1.) 96% of TV is utter crap 2.) anything I really want I can see on DVD, sans commercials 3.) cable is expensive and 4.) between movies, books, podcasts, internet and the Wii, TV can't really compete for entertainment time.

I say that only so the next comment will make sense: "Dr. Who" is only current TV show that I really watch (on DVD, a season behind). Perhaps this thread will give me some others to check out. :D

Spoiler alert:

The fifth cylon is inside all of our hearts.

Or maybe it's "You," like Person of the Year '06? With a mirror? I guess the Centurions are already kinda mirrors...

Ok, ok, just kidding. It's clearly Galactica itself.

No Torchwood

Since I'm a "Lost" geek, I'll have to vote Abrams all the way.

Oh, and I liked the latest, but is that ending twist not the biggest cliche ever? I was half expecting them to pan to a shot of the Statue of Liberty, with Charleton Heston screaming up at it, "You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you ALL TO HELL!"

Yes, sorry, I know. Many shows were left off the list. I should have known better than to leave Dexter off the poll, esp. in a sci-fi fan forum.

BSG can be high comedy on most eps. The redeeming thing is I like to believe the directors/writers/producers create those moments intentionally. Take Roslin's dialogue with Deanna this last episode. That music in that one pivotal moment is hilarious. That couldn't have been meant to be taken seriously.

I wonder when "It's all crap" is going to air in Holland, I've never seen that one... Sounds promising though!

Of the shows that do exist in my universe, I love Heroes!
I think I would have liked LOST too, but I completely missed the first season because in the beginning, it didn't appeal to me. The story sounded so boring. And then strange things started to happen at that island but the it was too late for me to get into the story. So, no LOST in my universe. I only let Heroes (and House!!!! Yeah! ) into mine.
