Special Post #5: Armporn! For Your Consideration  


Hi all! I'm zinke and due to circumstances beyond the mods control (read: World Series), there has been a change to the Hiatusca calendar and this week's presentation, episode 4x5 The Road Less Traveled will be postponed until next week.

In it's place, I’ll be bringing you next week's scheduled special post which focuses on one of the more highbrow aspects of our beloved show: ARMS!

PLEASE BE AWARE that all of this week's posts will contain SPOILERS through the episode 'The Road Less Traveled'. Also, if you're looking for a discussion post about serious, intellectual issues you've come to the wrong place.


1. Do you feel that the men on Battlestar Galactica are overly objectified by their fans because of their ridiculously magnificent arms?

2. Do you think there was a steroid-use problem on Pegasus? On Galactica? Do you think the Quorum should have held hearings to investigate or does this issue fall outside the scope of their responsibility?

3. What kind of an exercise program do you think Helo devised to get Fat!Lee back into shape so quickly?

4. Why do you think it is that we rarely get to see anyone on Galactica wearing the black t-shirts of awesome?

5. Do you think we will ever get to see Lee in tanks again?

6. At its heart, is Battlestar Galactica truly a show about morality at the end of the world, or is it really all about the arms?

7. Whose arms make for the best eye-candy? (Because I fail at poll-making, please feel free to respond to this question in the comments below) 

          a. Captain Commander Major Mister Lee Adama
              

          b. Karl C. Agathon (Call Sign: Helo) 
              

          c. The Infamous Tattooed Pilot 
              

          d. Samuel T. Anders (a.k.a. Mr. Thrace) 
              

          e. Felix “Wild Thing” Gaeta 
              

          f. The men of the Pegasus Flight Group 
              

          g. Admiral Bill "Husker" Adama

This is very true. There was a significant individual left out of the poll. Also, having been embraced by both Daddy!Dama and emo!Dama because I am a slut like that because I am very good at following through on con opportunities, Bill/EJO's arms are MUCH nicer.

It is entirely possible that I am a moron. He's supposed to be there.

Hold on...

Okay. I have amended the situation. This is what happens when you try and post while eating lunch at your desk.

um, some people may be a tad upset not to see Bill or Tigh here. Just sayin'. And even Kara. Do the women not count?

I rouse rabble and am proud of it. hehehe

(I have to vote for my boy Helo, though, even if (secretly) Lee may have the better arms. :))
My Mama Didn't Raise Me to Be a Fishwife: EJO - Papinnaylime on October 21st, 2008 06:31 pm (UTC)
We could do a whole objectification thing. Best arms (we'll disagree on that one), best abs (Helo), best legs (Laura), best eyes (Kara), best butt (Anders), and so on.

where is the butt-pic????????????? *wibbles*

Nothing bare, but in the pyramid game his pants draped nicely.

forget abs... I'm voting for Helo and hips. ::drool::

No butts this week. Only arms. *g*

There may be some extraneous abs pics, if that helps...

buttly....;-P
captaintish: BSG -- Toastercaptaintish on October 23rd, 2008 06:26 am (UTC)
Lol. I'm just trying to picture the end result, which is rather odd and disturbing. I don't know, like putting Kara's head on Helo's body. Very odd picture. Let's not forget to add on some Centurion gun-hands. It's like Mr. Potato-head!

I'm tired. I need to go to sleep.

There will be more pics of the equal-opportunity variety later in the week, so just hold your horses! *g*

::dutifully holds horses::

(I'd rather hold onto something(one) else. ;))
((fyi - I live in the gutter.))
(((Awww, I wouldn't be me if I wasn't giving you a hard time. ::snuggles::)))

*snuggles back* I know. It's one of the things I love about you - along with the fact that your mind dwells in the gutter with mine.

Yeah, I hate to say it, but Tigh has pretty great arms.
Hopeless Romantic at Heart: BSG - Arms Dealerszinke on October 21st, 2008 07:24 pm (UTC)
His excessive chest hair disqualified him from the poll. But you'll see him later in the week. *g*
kymba: Call me sir GODDAMMIT!kymba on October 21st, 2008 07:12 pm (UTC)
Arms objectification? Okay.

Length? Helo, hands down, no explanation needed.

Girth? Lee. He's gotta make up for his dwarfism somehow. SNAPS!

And this has been your porny zen moment of the day.

Very, very well-played. I commend you. *bows*

1 - No more than others may overly objectify the women's legs.

2 - Nope - they're all natural, baby!

3 - I don't know, but sign me up

4 - because they were Pegasus shirts, DUH! ;-)

5 - I see no reason why he couldn't at least wear a wife beater under his suit shirts.

6 - The former, the latter is just the cherry on top of the sundae of awesome

7 - In order:

G
A
D
B
F
C
E
Hopeless Romantic at Heart: BSG - Watch for the Plotzinke on October 21st, 2008 07:15 pm (UTC)
3 - I don't know, but sign me up

I really think Helo may have a career in the exciting world of home exercise video production.

Chris: Adama--Hot Coffeekarihan on October 21st, 2008 07:47 pm (UTC)
G!!!!!!!!!

(like anyone's surprised. ;)

And I'll put in D in second place and A in third.
chaila: adamachaila on October 21st, 2008 11:52 pm (UTC)
Do you think the Quorum should have held hearings to investigate or does this issue fall outside the scope of their responsibility?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Also, I like how I totally got distracted from the arms by the Congress joke. Clearly there is something wrong with me. :D
Hopeless Romantic at Heart: BSG - Adama smilezinke on October 22nd, 2008 02:38 am (UTC)
I'm just happy someone actually got the Congress joke. I was worried that I was being a little too obscure with the doping/politics reference.

Though I do find it hard to understand how one could ever be truly distracted when there is so much pretty to be seen. *g*
dianora: bsg lee armsdianora2 on October 22nd, 2008 04:11 am (UTC)
If we don't get to see Lee in tanks ever again I will cry and cry.

And I think my answer to best arms is pretty obvious. *g*
phdelicious: BSG_Apollophdelicious on October 22nd, 2008 11:42 pm (UTC)
So pretty! We can't be serious all the time.

1 - Objectified, occasionally ; overly, not at all
2 - Steroids is highly possible particularly with the Pegasus crowd. They were getting into all types of trouble.
3 - Lord only knows but it worked really, really well!
4 - The tanks of awesome tend to make up for it.
5 - I hope so! Or at least with Kara ripping his shirt off.
6 - LOL! Does it really have to be one OR the other?

7 - 3way tie between Apollo, Helo, and Anders depending on the shot an my mood.
