Wired Includes My Roommate the Cylon in “7 Web Shows to Watch”

May 15th, 2009

Wired Underwire blogger Hugh Hart wrote today about what’s worth watching online. At the top of his list: My Roommate the Cylon.

7 Webotainers Worth Watching

Creative team Space Shank Media drags the lofty Battletar Galactica mythology down to earth, where an apartment full of semi-dim twenty-somethings debate Cylon DNA. Smart editing eliminates the need for stunt people to fall off a three-story balcony.

In the tradition of the Lonely website, which brought Andy Samberg to the attention of Saturday Night Live, SpaceShank’s web work is getting noticed by people with money. Partner Alec McNayr says “Cylon really opened some doors for us. We’ve been pitching Comedy Central, meeting agents and talking to managers. It seems as though a web series is what a screenplay-in-tote used to be: proof of young, untested talent.”

Thanks for mentioning MRTC!

Obama Depressed, Distant Since ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Series Finale

April 1st, 2009

Obama Depressed at Computer Reading Battlestar Galactica Forum

Full disclosure: We informed the President of the identity of our final Cylon Roommate. He had to know, and couldn’t be distracted during the G20 summit.

WASHINGTON—According to sources in the White House, President Barack Obama has been uncharacteristically distant and withdrawn ever since last month’s two-hour series finale of Battlestar Galactica.

“The president seems to be someplace else lately,” said one high-level official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Yesterday we were all being briefed on the encroachment of Iranian drone planes into Iraq, when he just looked up from the table and blurted out, ‘What am I supposed to watch on Fridays at 10 p.m. now? Numb3rs?'”

“I haven’t seen him this upset since Admiral Adama realized that Earth was actually an uninhabitable wasteland,” the official continued. “Or at least that’s what he told me. I don’t actually watch the show. It’s not really my thing.”
