Starting Rumours, Part 2November 24, 2008
What happens in Vegas, may happen again in New Vegas…
Ok, I am being a bit of a trouble-maker, aren’t I? Couldn’t resist. They looked so cute.
But I also felt the need to wade into the fray on an issue that has come up about the soon-to-air new webisodes for Battlestar Galactica. It seems a number of my favourite websites have forgotten their own rules regarding spoilers.
While bloggers have generally been good about protecting the identity of the two new lovers to be revealed in the webisodes, their very headlines have broadcast what makes this relationship different from most of the others we have seen on the show.
That, in itself, was news. I think that also means it was a pretty frakkin’ big spoiler.
Granted, I live in a country where the issue featured in the new storyline is on the back burner. We may not all agree about anything other than just to let people be, for now. I recognize that recent political events have proven it to be a divisive and emotional topic in the US.
Galactica’s creators have admitted they draw parallels between current political events in the US and events that unfold on the show, whether it be water-boarding or stealing elections. They are going to keep pushing our buttons. Let us not let our strong feelings on these issues spoil the enjoyment for others, when there is so little new BSG left.
