I caught the Sci Fi channel's remake of Battlestar Galactica. Much improved from the original cheesy series. I especially like what they've done with women's roles. Starbuck has transformed from a smooth-talking, good-looking man into a shit-talking, butch woman. The president is a brunette Hillary Clinton (As we start seeing more women presidents portrayed in the media, people will get more used to the idea and it will become a reality that much sooner). And the main cylon character is a cruel yet playful blonde bombshell who wields her sexuality as a dangerous weapon, manipulating a male scientist through his weakness for her scantily-clad body, and thereby causing the destruction of most of mankind. Definitely a hint of dominatrix in the role!
