Think Of It As A Shot Of Methadone...

...Or possibly morpha. The new Galactica webisodes started airing on Friday, and once again anyone not lucky enough to be born over the graves of Native Americans gets shafted. Of course, if you feel like breaking the law, and have some idea of an exciting new website called "Yootoob", or something...

Glad to see they've finally gotten round to giving us a character who lives in the intersection of the Venn Diagram of homosexuals and non-douches, BTW.

Ooh, haven't seen webisode 2 yet, shall have to peruse it at lunch...

By the way, when you say 'they' do you mean the BSG writers or SF/fantasy tv writers in general? In any case, I too applaud it, and am smug that I thought Gaeta was gay from about season 2 (hurrah for televisual gaydar!)

I had him down as gay for quite a while too (the clue is in the name). I was mainly referring to BSG, though it works on a more general level too; I'd struggle to think of any other male homosexual character in the genre.

There was Andrew in Buffy, although he was a ridiculous caricature.

Sometimes pretty damn funny though.

Oops, yeah; I meant to write "any other male homosexual character in the genre who wasn't played for laughs."
