Because We Care! About Cylon Haircare!

So, if, as we posited earlier, the cylons have a Walgreens on the resurrection ship where the Sixes can all dye their hair to varying shades of blonde after they download into a new body, shouldn’t the humans have such a thing on their ships?

I ask this because, as friend and reader Clarabella and I were discussing during tonights episode of BSG, it would seem that Starbuck could use some serious beauty assistance.  As C. asserted, Starbuck needs a trip to the good people at Sephora.  She clearly needs a good shampoo and facial cleanser, at best, and at the very least a frakking hairbrush, are we right?

Of course, as I claimed, there is no time for hair- and skincare when “god’s” “plan” may be about to be revealed. Plus, I bet the old garbage scow that crew is on doesn’t have the same beauty and shopping opportunities that a cylon resurrection ship must have.  C., of course, came up with the best possible explanation: no doubt this is why Starbuck wants to find Earth so desperately!

At any rate, it is these important issues that I love to be able to discuss with like-minded fans of my favorite shows, and this is why Battlestar Galactica is such a brilliant show: it truly makes us think about the larger issues in life! The questions that matter to all humans and all cylons! The true tests that define all human and cylon kind! Whether man, woman, or machine, we all are engaged in the same universal processes: shampoo, rinse, repeat.

    I wish the hybrid had said “Hie thee to a salon!” to Starbuck. “Harbinger of Death” is such a downer.

    Dude, I know! And that would have been far more useful advice too, right?

    Here’s what I’m trying to figure out: where is all the whiskey coming from? Sure, there’s a distillery somewhere on the battlestar but where are they getting the barley/hops/whatever-goes-into-whiskey? Maybe I just need to be a more attentive viewer.

    When/if they get to Earth, I hope they arrive in the middle of modern day Manhattan. That would really be something.

    That is a very good question! Whiskey, like haircare, is something that concerns all of us!

    Also, yeah, I am dying to know what it will be like when/if Earth appears…
