BSG goes U.N.

Sadly, the worst part of Battlestar Galactica is what most people celebrate about it, the humanity, the overreaching emotions, the so very obvious, forced allegories. They way overdo it. If you watch the show and witnessed Adama’s 17th emotional breakdown last week you know what I mean. More Cylon trickery and less human-cylon reconciliation bullshit! But fuck it, maybe there is something the U.N. can learn from a TV show.

On March 17, there will be a “Battlestar” retrospective at the U.N. in New York and a panel discussion of how the show examined issues such as “human rights, children and armed conflict, terrorism, human rights and reconciliation and dialogue among civilizations and faith,” according to Sci Fi.

The panel will be moderated by “Battlestar” fan Whoopi Goldberg.
