Why the New Battlestar Galactica Rocked (It was in the Admiral's contract:)
Admiral Adama, the great Edward James Olmos, made a deal when he agreed to be in the Battlestar Galactica remake. He said no aliens. He did not want to deal with acting against lame people in rubber latex suits. So his contract actually said, according to him, "“The first four-eyed monster that I see, I'm going to faint on camera -- then I'm going to get up, and you're going to write me out of the show.” That is just awsome. And, it is the Admiral we all knew and loved!
