Bob Dylan and the Subterranean Homesick Cylons

Bob Dylan - Subterranean Homesick BluesOK, maybe I'm stretching here, considering that we are TV Squad, but it's Sunday, and the bar is lowered, right? Anyway, the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" scene from D.A. Pennebaker's documentary, Don't Look Back, is one of the most iconic pieces of music video ever created. To promote the upcoming release of Dylan, a greatest hits album, the marketing team has the clip set up so you can insert your own words on Bob's famous cue cards.

Someone called Antonio had the thought to insert the opening from Battlestar Galactica. Unfortunately, they stopped short of letting you embed the video somewhere else, so you'll have to run over to dylanmessaging.com to see the video. It's short though, so you have plenty of time to do that, and then get back here for Jay Black's liveblogging of the Emmys. And if that's still not enough TV-ness for a post, let me add some obscure trivia. Long before Juliet did the Dylan cards on Lost, the second episode of Law & Order was titled "Subterranean Homeboy Blues." As a side note, I still think Law & Order was at its best all those years ago when it was Logan & Greevey.
