Battlestar Galactica -- Texas style

by Mike Moody, posted May 1st 2009 2:03PM
I love Battlestar Galactica, Dallas and cheesy opening credit sequences where the cast stops and poses for the camera. That's why my favorite thing on the Internet this morning is this Battlestar Galactica/Dallas mashup video I found over at Galactica Sitrep.



The funny thing is, this video really reveals BSG's '70s roots. The shot with the retro-looking (but modern) BSG logo popping up over the Dallas theme seems oddly appropriate. Kudos to the videomaker for including action shots featuring multiple Cylon Centurion models. The old school toasters mesh very well with the music. So does Lee Adama's season four Lorenzo Lamas hairdo, dontcha think?

I wonder if I'll see a Caprica/Knots Landing mashup video show up in my inbox soon. Because I would like that very much.

Note to all the mashup videomakers looking for inspiration: Here are some sci-fi/'70s TV show pairings I'd like to see:

  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer/The Mary Tyler Moore Show
  • Stargate Atlantis/Happy Days
  • Star Trek: Deep Space Nine/MASH
  • Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles/Wonder Woman.

EXCELLENT. Thanks for posting, that was extremely well done. That video almost made me forget how much I hated the finale.

These are my fav mashups:
DS9 as BSG is the best, IMO.

Lorenzo Lamas was on "Falcon Crest." Maybe Ken Kercheval's hair?

That was AWESOME! If I hadn't grown up in the 70's, I wouldn't have even known it was a joke!
