LOL: Battlestar Rhapsody

Not too long ago, we ran a Bohemian Rhapsody parody starring The Muppets, and now we've come across another parody of the classic Queen song — this time based on the Battlestar Galactica 'verse. It's a pretty hilarious lyrical spin on the series, and fans will find a lot to love. BSG virgins, and those still working through the show, should steer clear however. It's chock full of spoilers right up until the end of the series.

While the vocals could use some work, the song's lyrics do a rather brilliant job of bringing BSG nerd fanaticism to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody. I particularly enjoyed this bit:

I see a little opera house inside my head.

There were five, dressed in white, or perhaps it was Gandalf?

Galen's gonna go nuts. Who ate all the donuts? Lee?

Lee Apollo! Lee Apollo!

Lee Apollo! Lee Apollo!

Lee Apollo ate them whole.

He's saying "D'oh!" "D'oh!" "D'oh!" "D'oh!" "D'oh!"

Three's just a skin-job, nobody loves her.

Three's just a skin-job, princess warrior.

She drives a Hybrid, a prophecizor!

The more I run into BSG fan projects like this, the more I just want to scoop up that Blu-ray box set and spend a few weeks rewatching the entire series. At least we have Caprica starting on Jan. 22, which will surely satisfy the need for more tales in the BSG-verse. I reviewed the pilot back in April, and thought it did a good job of setting up the series. I just hope they keep it up for the rest of the season.
