For your Emmy consideration

While watching Battlestar Galactica last night on the Sci-Fi Channel (Hey! Stop laughing!), I noticed a commercial for their upcoming "original" movie, called... Mansquito.

I think that'd be a great title for a story about a midget superhero (I guess I'll have to come up with something else for that idea now). Or maybe a new line of manly nacho chips.

But no - this thing is about a scientist who transforms herself (And if it's a woman, shouldn't this be called "Womansquito"? Or, even better, "Chicksquito"?) into some mutant man-mosquito hybrid (Oh, now that title makes sense...) while searching for a cure of West Nile Virus. I think I'd rather have the virus...

Cancel whatever plans you made for next Saturday night, kids.
