Frackin' A

So call me a corny and cliched cheeseball, but there's something about stories of relationships set amidst the backdrop of despair and war that just really get to me. I was able to catch up on BSG and I really dug this Episode 5 (The Farm). It had that same old formula... boy & girl get together, but love & happiness take a back seat to duty and saving the human race. Sounds a lot like all those old movies I used to watch. :) Hell, this episode was strangely reminiscent of Casablanca. Hm...reminds me of one of those lectures in film class; one thing they said was that all the stories have already been done...everything you see are all just rehashes of the same things:
  • boy meets girl, girl likes boy, but boy ends getting killed in (war/accident/alien abduction/twist of fate)
  • girl meets boy, boy doesn't like girl, another boy likes girl, girl doesn't notice other boy until too late
  • boy and girl happy together, boy meets other girl, destroys relationship, girl moves on, boy realizes he made mistake
  • boy likes girl, girl discovers she likes other girl, boy discovers he likes other boy

and so on and so forth. Eh. Screw the clinical breakdown, I still dig a good story, regardless of how cliched and cheesy it is.
