You May Be a Cylon if…

You didn’t shed a tear during last night’s special two hour installment of EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION.

For those of you who don’t know a Cylon from a Klingon, a quick explanation. A Cylon is a robot (in human form), and if didn’t tear up during last nights tribute to a true American hero, well that my friends is exactly what you are.

Last night, Ty and his design team came to the aid of an ex-Marine who risked his life to save two police officers at the World Trade Center during the September 11 attacks. You may have seen Sergeant Thomas’ story played out in the film WORLD TRADE CENTER, which featured the police rescue. At the time of the movie’s release, neither New York authorities nor the film’s producers had been able to locate the man who identified himself at the site only as “Sergeant Thomas,” and the film portrayed him as a white man, though he is black. When reporters tracked him down, he hesitantly came forward with his story. Now he is celebrated all over the country.

While is generally not a fan of reality television, I couldn’t help but be completely enthralled with last night’s edition of EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION. It’s one of those rare reality television shows that actually makes the world a better place and brings a tear to my eye everytime I watch it.

    Holy crap… I understand Rome, when forced to watch Two & A Half Men during a plane right I was forced to admit I’d laughed several times, I thought Luke was a putz for his behavior last season, and I’m actually loving Desperate Housewives again… I think I might be a cylon! But good God, what the HELL are you doing watching Extreme Cryfest???

    Firstly, I know — EXTREME CRYFEST… out of my character, but for some reason I was in the mood for some feel good tv to be forced down my throat.

    Two, you laughed at 2.5 Men… I can only assume you were drunk off the airplane booze cart?

    While I enjoy DH this season, there are still a few things I absolutely detest – namely, zach young and susan’s daughter who’s name escapes me (a pathetic attempt to create the lorelai/rory vibe).

    this show is my weekly catharsis, hehe

    the 9/11 stuff didn’t affect me much, but poor Ed slicing his hand open did.
