    Just to be on the safe side I've sent a Cylon to fall in love with WHF and then kill him as per her mission instructions so he can't post in this thread.

    The only reason you hate Sci-Fi and "nerdy" things so much is due to your own insecurity about your relative coolness and ability to be liked; these things are in direct relation to that in your mind. Just because something has space ships doesn't mean it can't have compelling characters, sharp narrative, and well done themes. It's no different from any other work of the imagination except in your own biased head!

    Video games are nerdy WHF, being a PC gamer more so, run for the hills!

    Now that the question on your intelligence has been addressed (again) there's really no need for you to be in this thread.

    So leave.

    It's the fact that you honestly think you have a point that makes all of this so sad.

    Up it's own clich'es asses? What does that even mean? Give examples or something, preferably visual since words aren't doing the trick here. Unless of course you were just throwing as many words that you thought sounded good into a sentence as possible hoping to make your "point" seem more intelligent and well thought out because you know what cliche means, in which case you may carry on.

    I've never in my entire life seen a single sci fi with a six headed alien or a butt-faced martian. Seriously, ever. I've seen Star Wars, Star Trek, Galactica new and old, and I have never seen anything like you describe. The only thing cliche here are your bull**** reasons for hating sci-fi and calling it nerdy in the hopes that someone on the internet will think you're cool. I'll let the irony sink in.


    Wow, one character that appeared in one movie of one series for one minute who was one percent as bad as some of the characters I've seen in settings you seem to prefer (like gears of war bull**** with "up it's own cliched ass" war characters that I've seen a million different times, as well as the convenienty overlooked sci-fi theme) is reason for you to hate an entire genre so much that you start tarding out whenever you hear it mentioned?


    You're right. It's all crappy TV. Every last bit of it. I mean, I know you're too cool to have actually watched any and to have found out, but I'll take your word for it. All crap.

    :rolleyes:
    Here's a clue, you obviously need one. Sci Fi tells it's story's just like everything else. It shares the same underlying themes and character archetypes as everything else. As a matter of fact, every sci fi movie and television show ever made could be translated into any setting you'd like and still maintain those things, because they do not change because of themes. Unless you hate all media, music, tv, movies, games, everything, which I doubt, you are left with only one reason to hate sci-fi: because you want to look cool, on the internet. Which I'll leave you on your own to figure out how ******ed that is.

    If you don't like sci-fi, or whatever, seriously, no one cares. I mean it. Absolutely no one. Not even one person. You probably don't even care. So the next time there is some sort of sci-fi related thread, we don't really care if you post or not. We won't miss your post if you decide to move on to something else. We're perfectly fine with not being told what is and isn't "nerdy" by someone who posts on a comic book message board to his internet friends about video games and going to college a virgin. So just stop.

    sci fi has some advantages over regular series aswell. often the behaviour of aliens can be used to illuminate human behaviour through contrast. they are more free to deal with the question of religion because their religions are fictional. the setting and situation can be changed far quicker. one episode you can have diehard in space. the next something completely different.

    Baltar is the man. Every time he does almost ANYTHING I just want to smack him, but he's so endearing in that morally glass half empty sort of way. :o

    Zenien says I have to post here or she'll beat me up. :(

    Anyways, this has the potential to be good, like sci-fi. But it could also be dumb fanboy "omg do this and that and that and that omg" crap.

    Orignalresponse: The correct reply would be to talk about Baltar and his robot girlfriend. :o

    The problem with sci-fi is that it exists. And I'm not saying that to not sound dorky. I dork out over a lot of things, but sci-fi is just awful.
