While You Wait for Lost...

I read this article last week and it was the best thing I read all week. It's one of the funniest things I've read in The Onion, and it's clearly written by someone who knows BSG inside and out. It's about Obama's post-BSG depression, where he admits to feeling like a cylon without a resurrection ship.

"Since the end of the series, Obama has reportedly brushed off key budgetary decisions, ignored his wife and children, and neglected his daily workouts, claiming that he no longer cares if he lets himself go 'just like Lee did before the rescue on New Caprica.'"

If you're a fan of BSG (and have also felt like your Friday nights have no meaning since the show ended) this article is for you.

You can read it here.

I saw this last week. Brilliant! My favorite part was the commentary from Michelle, because it also namedrops Firefly:

"I'm a little concerned," first lady Michelle Obama was overheard saying at a fundraising event Tuesday. "When Firefly was canceled, he walked around like a zombie for a week, and Serenity was the only thing that snapped him out of it. Last night he said he felt like he had just discovered David Axelrod was one of the Final Five, whatever that means."
