Ok, I have this rule for science fiction television: if your aliens/robots don't use contractions, I can't be bothered to watch your show. I have simply seen enough nonhumans asking "What is this love of which you speak?" to last me a lifetime.
That's why watching Caprica has been such a pleasure. The complexity of the characters, the sheer beauty of the cinematography and editing, the worldbuilding, the clever and evocative scores by Bear McCreary - it was a relief to watch something so well-made, especially after trying to prop my eyes open during shit like The Event.
I know. Video mashups have been lame for kind of a while. And for some viewers, Battlestar Galactica got really lame really quickly. But still, this shot-for-shot recreation of the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" video using clips from BSG is about perfect. I love Fat Lee Adama eating something where the donut-eating shot appeared in the original.

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) will always be into some
seriously heavy shit. Responsible for such sinister-sounding past endeavors as the Sea Shadow and the MQ-1 Predator, DARPA permanently resides on the cutting edge.
