At the end of the last Battlestar Gallactica episode for the year (what a depressing phrase) they showed a teaser for next season with the crew finally making it back to earth. Said earth looks distinctly like the earth WALL*E is attempting to clean up. Coincidence? I think not. While some might say that one destroyed earth looks much like another, I disagree. My dimunitive hero makes much more sense as #12 than any of the other ideas I’ve had. What better way to show the meshing of human and robot-kind than Mr. W? Plus it could explain how Starbuck’s viper got so clean and new. That cleanbot did it!
I have to say that watching the Battlestar teaser I kept waiting for someone to shout, “You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!”
BTW, I loved this analysis of WALL*E and how he violates Canada’s absurd copyright law.
1. WALL-E records audio from his favorite movie, Hello Dolly, putting in onto his own digital recorder (bypassing the macrovision DRM on the tape). A COPYRIGHT CRIME UNDER C-61
2. WALL-E archives the audio, he doesn’t merely time-shift it. He listens repeatedly! A COPYRIGHT CRIME UNDER C-61
3. WALL-E shares his DRM-broken music with his friend, another robot named EVE. A COPYRIGHT CRIME UNDER C-61
4. WALL-E watches Hello Dolly on multiple evenings, on the screen of an iPod. Hello Dolly is not available through the iTunes store, therefore he broke the videocassette DRM when he platform shifted it. A COPYRIGHT CRIME UNDER C-61
Exactly the kind of thing I’d expect from a cylon!
