Why does it have to be Battlestar Galactica? Why not Space Balls? Remember Dot Matrix? http://images.wikia.com/spaceballs/images/c/ca/Dot_matrix.gif
What is Battlestar Galactica like?
But...but...what if the blond woman robot was Seven of Nine?
Could have been Spaceballs.
It could also be spaceballs...just saying.
That was a TV show?!
Also, what is "Star Wars"?
Ha! "space movies are all the same"... Successfull Troll is Successful :p
Hey - it could have been ST: Voyager with '7 of 9'
Obviously she was watching "Spaceballs."
God, I am such a geek.
Suck... suck... suck... suck... suck...
She's switched from "suck" to "blow!"
The mad face in panel 4 is my favorite - right after the "hide will make a fine poncho" one...
And I've had this conversation.
Blond woman robot coulda been 7 of 9. Just sayin'
DESCRIBE THE ROBOTS!!!!!!!!!!
Are you sure she wasn't watching "Galaxina"?
DESCRIBE THE ROBOTS!
No.No no no no no!!7 of 9 is human with a few Borg implants that the Doctor couldn't remove.
Third panel was comedy gold. Really hilarious!
What noob said. There's a difference between a robot and a cyborg. Sheesh.
Although she if she was watching 7 of 9, then she would have referred to 7 of 9 as a "robot" just to mess with Scott some more. Hmm, the plot thickens.
OMG. I just watched the GALAXINA movie trailer. That must have been the worst space movie EVER !
When I think blond woman robot, I think Galatea, from Bicentennial Man. (I Know There Weren't ANY Space Ships. I was thinking of a blond woman robot.)
come on, people! It was Terminator 3!!!
Well, it could have been Bladerunner too - although it's not really a space movie, but id did have the "Daryl Hannah hot blond robot" in it.
Wow, Number 6, Seven of Nine, Dot Matrix... maybe all space movies are the same.
@ Freddy - it's fantastically bad! Definitely worth watching for laughs.
Every conversation about science fiction I have ever had with my family, Oh, help me Goddess. I have a family reunion this weekend.
She also could have been watching the Buck Rogers tv show, if she saw the episode with Tina.
Very well executed, with a realistic style of sci fi that's harder than any other TV sci fi I know, compelling characters and good storytelling, and very, very dark.
Genocide, torture, racism, terrorism and vast amounts of hard drinking. Moral ambiguity and difficult dilemmas in a way Star Trek could only dream of showing.
You'll love it if that's the kind of thing you like. :)
I think it was the one where Captain Chewbacca and Spock save Middle Earth.
This is very much like conversations that I have had with my daughter.Again, and again.
There's only one yellow droid.All others are pale imitations.
At times like this, it's useful to remember that Stanley Donen, who directed Singin' in the Rain, also directed Saturn 3, the greatest sci-fi movie of all time that is named "Saturn 3."
we need to get this on google+
Unlike Scott, I was not fooled. I remember her first appearance where she referenced Boba Fett and the Sarlaac.
The lesson I learned here is that Scott clearly doesn't know enough about sci-fi if he missed so many blonde woman robots. Also, any conversation like this can usual go quick if you ask who the actors were. So many times I get "that guy from Moulin Rouge," which gets it down to just a few possibilities.
Data's pale white, not yellow... o_O
Re Blade Runner comment. Blade Runner does have flying cars though which could look like 'spaceships' to someone who wasn't really watching it.
Also, if you didn't know they were all replicants you'd think it's pretty much the only movie that shows the 'hero' shooting an unarmed fleeing woman in the back so she falls headfirst into a plate-glass window.
Data also isn't immediately recognizable as a robot. Yellow though...
This comment sections has now been dedicated to Spaceballs.
"Was it worth watching?""Yes.""It was Babylon 5."
You're welcome :)
jdp - I was thinking the same thing, but it doesn't have spaceships....
