Supper’s On!January 7, 2008
Battlestar Galactica fans must be absolutely starving, given the frenzy developing over the last couple of days following the release of a photo from the January 11th issue of Entertainment Weekly — a take on DaVinci’s “The Last Supper” featuring characters from BSG and some cryptic comments from creator Ron Moore.
It’s a cleverly composed image. Clever and revealing just as it is, but the fans are going much further than simple analysis of the photo. They’re using software to mirror one side of the image onto the other, wondering if it changes the relationships hinted at. Add in a dash of theology and trivia, and we’ve got speculation aplenty.
I love the fact that the fans are so keen on this show they will invest a great deal of time and energy in speculation. I love reading it. But I think it is also a sign of desperation. This hiatus has been WAY too long.
Did I mention, it appears Sci-Fi has set an air date of April 4th for the Season Four premiere rather than March as indicated in recent promotional materials. No word yet on an airdate for Canada, but it will likely be the same.
