The Sci Fi network is bringing back that cheeseball sci-fi nugget of my youth, Battlestar Galactica. As an uncritical 12-year-old, I eagerly watched every new episode when they first aired. When the original episodes started airing in reruns a few years ago, I marveled at the cheap sets, recycled special effects, costumes, and laugh-out-loud plotlines. I wonder if they're going to play it straight?
Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to
be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
