I grew up watching the original Battlestar Galactica. What kid wouldn’t enjoy watching dogfighting spaceships, not to mention a robotic dog? Dogs are great and robots are great — putting them together is awesomeness squared. What was there for a 7-year-old not to love? Unfortunately, the series was short-lived, though a Viper with an actual firing laser torpedo remained my prized toy far longer.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
