"Battlestar Galactica is easily what turned me completely towards the geek culture. I was already working my way there, but I won’t lie, I used to be one of those people that looked at my friends when the re-imagined series first started and said, “You’re watching Battlestar GALACTICA????” And I said it with that tone, you know the one, the severely condescending tone when you judge something that you perceive to be a waste of time or something that is just too geeky. Finally, my friend, Steve, sat me down and told me to watch one certain scene within the second season of the show. He told me that if watching that scene didn’t make me give Battlestar a chance then he would give up and never mention Battlestar Galactica again."
