So this week’s Caprica was MUCH better in the Sister Clarice department!!! Check it:
1/ I just loved watching that woman splayed out, high as shit on a fainting couch at the “hookah” bar. (Bonus points if someone finds a link to this photo and posts it in the Comments section!)
2/ I also loved how she was taking shots of “Scorpion Ambrosia” with the dead girl’s mom ( looks like Midori, but does like Tequila!).
3/ I LOVED how she and Amanda Graystone got really close in that “our boobies are touching” sort of way. This woman brings out the lech in me.
In this episode, I also really started liking the Asian guy!
The actor, Hiro Kanagawa, is not just the only Asian dude on the show – he’s also probably the only native Vancouver-ite (-ian?). Oh, Canada. Hiro was also on Smallville and starred as the title character in the quirky short film, Hiro:
Anyway, his Cyrus Xander character is finally coming off as more of the voice of reason than the business-minded harpy. However, I’m kind of perplexed that the Battlestar Wiki describes him as Daniel Graystone’s ASSISTANT?! In this episode, Daniel clearly calls Cyrus “Doctor” as well – and it seems more like he’s the President/COO to Daniel’s CEO. He’s not getting anyone coffee, and acts as the liaison between Daniel and the board. Am I reading too much into this?! Do I need to edit that Wiki at the risk of being attacked by harder core BSG fans?
And although I loved the Zoe/nerdy research assistant plot line a couple weeks ago, it is just annoying me to tears at the point. First of all, no one believes you’re a nerd when you look like an Abercrombie & Fitch model. Secondly, Avatar Zoe (aka Zoebot) “disguising” herself with glasses is beyond cliche. Even being self-deprecating about it is cliche. Audrey Hepburn did it! Rachel Leigh Cook really shouldn’t have! Everyone else is just pushing the button on her own dunk tank! In this case, Lisa Loeb called and wants her mid-90s interpretation of mid-50s vintage back. Judge:
But in things I love, there are the two new villains: Tomas Vergis and Barnabas. I am stoked because Barnabas is played by none other than….James Marsters!!!
Freakin’ SPIKE from that other great fantasy TV series, BTVS:
Before all this Twilight/Vampire Diaries/America’s Next Top Vampire BULL CRAP, there was Buffy. Teenagers and vampires done RIGHT! Sexy, not twee!
Even Jim Carrey couldn’t handle that genre:
Anyway, I digress! Here is James Marsters again, doing some Frollo stuff to himself:
Only he could play someone named Barnabas. And wear eyeliner.
Except, of course, this guy:
