And incidentally, I love the way the writers have turned things on their heads since the miniseries: the original point of this post (way back in
February) was that I had finished up with DVD miniseries/S1 and it seemed to be a more or less direct analogy for the US being attacked on 9/11, the
'muslims' being Cylons
Go forward to the start of series 3, and the Cylons are now 'occupying Americans', even to the extent of trying to recruit and proxy police
force/collaborators who are being attacked by suicide bombers on the side of the colonists. Col Tigh even looks like a Bin Laden/Al Zarkawi sort of
figure, with his big beard and haggard appearance.
I generally loathe North American TV, however this really is something special - it's just a shame that they are stuck on Sci-Fi/Space channels away
from a bigger audience. I was really hoping the NBC rumour was true.
