The F-word on Battlestar Caprica

Last month RedEyeRogue called the Galactica/Caprica epic out on it’s excessive use of illicit plant smoking.  The editors at RedEye decided that if we are going to be on the subject of such things than why backaway from all the cussing on the show?  These are a bunch of potty mouthed people.  Not that my mouth would win any  germ free awards, but these people really slather the ‘F’ word on hot and heavy. And they did it pretty well.

Of course the use of the “F” word goes back to the original “Battlestar Galactica: Saga of a Star World” tv-movie from 1978 just before Rick Springfield’s viper got shot down by cylon raiders. And don’t forget Starbuck had his favorite expletive – the less offensive “felcercarb” (colonial for ‘crap’ or ‘shit’) that he would drop from time.

When I was ten I took to using felcercarb as a swearword and actually got in trouble in math class for muttering it! Who knew Mrs. Hall was a Galactica fan?

We were  fixin’ to put together a short video, cutting together all of the galactica swears when I found someone else had already done it (Pizzicotta at YouTube) – done it well – and that the video was way too long.  This left me with a dilemma;  attempt to make our own video from scratch – a task that would take hours, and days – or do i just throw the video up and give a warning?

We decided to feature the video here at RedEye – it’s long – over 3 minutes – but  you don’t have to watch the whole thing to get a laugh or two (or three or four).

(Nuggets should probably leave the room now)
