battlestar galactica sci fiBattlestar Galactica is premiering! Did you know that? BSG is starting again. Ten eps left. Best show ever. Can. Not. Wait. Especially because we need to know the identity of the final Cylon!

Look, we're so crazy excited for the season premiere that the only thing we could do to keep ourselves from going a'spoiler-hunting was to create a wishlist. Below are six characters from other shows throughout history whom we imagine share the same genetics as those frakkin' Toasters.

6. Anthony Bouvier (Meshach Taylor), Designing Women: Dude was just harboring secrets, and you know it.

5. Fred Mertz (William Frawley), I Love Lucy: You can only be so publicly abusive to your wife for so long before people get to thinking. Cool it, Mertz, or else we're going to make you wake up in a tub of your own goopjuice.

nbc whitley jasmine guy
4. Whitley Wayne (Jasmine Guy), A Different World: She was totally hot and a major bi-otch. Remind you of anyone?

3. Marty Funkhouser (Bob Einstein), Curb Your Enthusiasm: After the amount of cosmetic surgery this guy's had, there's surely more actively being covered up than just crow's feet and frown lines.

richie family matters bryton mcclure
2. Richie Winslow (Bryton McClure), Family Matters: Because in the history of human hair, he was the only one to ever sport a wet, jhereurled mullet. Total Cylon.

betty white golden girls
1. Rose Nylund (Betty White), The Golden Girls: Sure, she may have seemed bird-brained. But underneath that cuddly, cat sweater-clad exterior lie an evil alien hellbent on the destruction of humanity as we know it. Face it: that St. Olaf business was all a frakkin' crock. Well played.

nice, eliot! given the phenomenal dearth of people of color on TV, it is baffling that half the people you chose to be frakkin' cylons were african-american. two others are old white people.

i guess in your world, the 20- to 40-something whites that make up about 90% of the actors on TV are honest, dependable, and upstanding humans. yep, no way they could ever be cylons.

My vote's with Rose Nylund.

On the same token, I've wanted to get an ISLAND AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD remake done for a decade. I can see the cast -- Jet Li as Oomiak, David Suchet as Captain Brieux, etc. And I would kill to have Betty White as the Supreme Priest of the tribe; it would make many Golden Girl moments that much funnier.
