Dylan Death Metal

Cylon Michael On tonight’s third-season premiere of Prison Break the song that’s blasting on the radio as Michael explores his charming new prison is a Spanish-language version of “All Along the Watchtower.” I couldn’t help wondering whether this was a nod to Galactica’s third-season finale.

Yeah, I know – it’s a famous song, and no connection to Galactica is necessary to explain someone’s using it. Still, Galactica’s was the most recent, prominent, significant use of it, so I’m betting it’s no coincidence.

But what I want to know is – does this mean that Michael, Mahone, Bellick, and T-Bag are Cylons?

Chris Sciabarra has written previously about Randian influence in comics. Well, here’s the latest example, out this week:
