There’s something fundamentally wrong with the universe…

Considering that the original Battlestar Galactica‘s awfulness was only exceeded by, ahem, Galactica 1980, I’m surprised the new Battlestar Galactica is actually pretty good.

The Screen Savers

Here’s my review (I’m stealing a bit from a classic Bloom County strip): G4TechTV’s recently retooled The Screen Savers has brought the word “bad” to new levels of badness.
