The show, she goes on....

...and we're dragging people into her. Victory is ours...
    I just realized today that we have, in an office of 20 people, 6 rabid Battlestar Galactica fans. That may not seem like many, but consider the percentage, given the statistical niche into which the show slides.  *counts on fingers, because math is hard* Yup, almost a third.
    It's impressive, particularly since at least three of the six were successfully
proselytized by one of our younger colleagues. Now our only problem is that three of the six are behind the current run. My boss is half-way through Season 1, our uber office boss, (a generally non-TV watching gentleman who was initially extremely wary of getting into the series) has reached the end of the second season, I think, and the third person is about one or two shows back in the current season. But the glee with which I and the proselytizer observe the fruits of his labor is satisfying to this old skiffy fan, I must say.

I am always leary of cult-like behaviours.

By which I mean I prefer my obessions to be on an individual basis rather than group.

Ah, but the liturgically congregational nature of sharing is tremendous!

Heh.

It's true.

I don't have any BSG fans in my office :-( but I do have one Lost fan. He's always a day behind but at least it's someone to recap with and bounce theories off of.

I always managed to avoid Lost, because I sensed it would be one of those shows that could eat my head. And, as I had more than a few of those already, I bowed, gave my regrets to the dramatis personae and avoided it altogether. Heh.

And how right you are. If you could see the crazy-ass gleam in my eye, the twitch to my fingertips, the generalized tinfoil-hat nature of my obsession, you might well move away from me on the bench.

Kicking and screaming will the foolish be dragged into the 25th and 1/2 century!
