1) "Battlestar Galactica" fans, are you looking forward to "Caprica"? After seeing the pilot that's released today on DVD, I am.

2) Would Simon's departure kill "American Idol"?

3) Have you recently -- or ever -- bought a product on HSN or QVC? If so, give me a shout at; I'd love to talk to you for a story I'm writing for Ye Olde Paper Globe.

  1. I don't think Simon leaving would KILL American Idol, but it'd definitely hurt the show. And because you have to fill the quota of British judges, I wonder if Piers would be available....

  1. 1. Yes, I'm looking forward to Caprica. After seeing how the story ends, it should be interesting to see how they got there. My only concern is that the prequel series thing didn't work so well on Star Trek (at least the first two seasons of Enterprise).

    2. I don't think Simon's leaving will kill American Idol, but I think they would have to find a compelling "bad guy" judge that can replace him without being a clone.

  1. Yes, I'm looking forward to being even more depressed than I was after watching BSG. Granted, I was late to the party (only started watching the reimagined series this winter). But, as I like to say ... it was so depressing, Ioved it!

    BTW, how many millions of years did it take the previous generation of humans to get so advanced that they could produce a Kara Thrace? If we're only 140,000 years removed from "Eve" (Hera), how many hundreds of thousands or millions of years before we produce a Hera or a Kara of our own?
