Every Battlestar Galactica Episode Ever

I've spent a lot of time watching Battlestar Galactica on Netflix during this winter holiday, and it seems like the whole series can be melted down to a few key themes:

Everyone is a cylon

Spoiler alert! Do not look at the above image

Lots of sexual tension... in space!


Allusions to the War on Terror

It's a cylon so it's not waterboarding.

Adama saying meaningful things in a deep voice

"I'm putting the fleet back together. I'm putting our family back together."

Saul Drinking a Lot

Everybody! Shots shots shots shots shots shots..

Lots and lots of Grace Park

Only have to pay one actress!

and last but not least....

People Pleading People That Have Guns Pointed at Them to Pull the Trigger (PPPTHGPTPT)

"Do it, I dare you, etc..." 
(this is almost as intense as when it happened last week)

Just find some crisis of the week (food running out, upcoming elections, engine trouble) and tack it onto these key building blocks and presto! You have an hour-long episode of BSG!
