The Original Battlestar Galactica Could Have Looked Way More Glam

The 1978 Battlestar Galactica had some great Earth-toned costumes and a nice Star Wars-inspired look.

But it's also a surprisingly dark character study of people who are slowly falling apart, which owes a lot to The Ice Storm. Here's our nearly spoiler-free first… » 3/28/14 3:20pm 3/28/14 3:20pm

In this clip, you'll see: 1) An alien in a jumpsuit with pom-poms sewn onto her breasts. 2) The alien randomly stripping behind a screen for no reason. 3) Perry Rhodan clumsily putting his moves on her.… » 3/18/14 9:00pm 3/18/14 9:00pm
