    By definition every single one of us is descended from ancestors who had sex and had children. Going all the way back to the first little amoebas who invented sex in the first place.

    It is probably not socially acceptable to say so but she is not aging well. Still full marks for two things:

    My father gave me some great advice – he said I needed to figure out what made me different from all the girls who looked exactly like me in California. He said if you can’t figure out what makes you special, you will never get a job.

    Still can’t forgive her for that abortion of a Battlestar Galactica though.

  6. I liked it up until the end of season 2. The whole thing started very well.

    On the show as a whole though, I generally agree with Dirk Benedict’s opinion.
