Battlestar Galacticons

Here’s a great article from Brad Reed of Sadly, No that combines two of my favorite topics at the moment: the total coolness that is the new Battlestar Galactica series, and the fact that most the ideas of the neocons are based on fantasy, or in this case, science fiction. It seems some of the nutjobs, initially enamored of BSG when it was torturing the Cylons and rigging elections, are unhappy that the humans have recently been cast in the roles of insurgents unhappy that the occupying Cylons are trying to impose their way of life at the point of a gun. The funniest thing to me is that they see BSG as a partisan show that has switched sides. The beauty of BSG has always been that, while often allegorical and referencing current events, it never offers an opinion of right or wrong. It just lets the viewer decide, which is as it should be.
