It’s time to fess up and admit it. Sitrep has been shockingly remiss about sharing a particular meme that has been gaining steam since forever. We may have failed to mention it, at first, back when BATTLESTAR GALACTICA season 4.0 was prompting a particular wave of fan responses such as this, this, or this.
We didn't say anything when one or two bloggers began pointing out the similar features of our favorite one-eyed cylon and a certain political candidate. We remained quiet when a well-known sci-fi versemaster also made comparisons between his lauded Knights and another high-profile politico. We failed to mention the continued chatter about certain similarities, real and imagined.
But this month, it has become completely impossible to ignore the pop cultural rumblings and ramblings about who looks like who. Fandom was not gonna let go of this one, no sir. And the press were just as entranced by it all. Even some of our beloved BSG actors waded into the fray…and other well-known actors have come out in favor of their own particular candidates. In fact, the field seems wide open now, doesn’t it?
Most surprising of all perhaps, has been the revelation that Sci Fi Channel/NBC-Universal has made their own stunning choice of candidate.
I can’t speak for Logan – but I know who I’m voting for.
Sure is nice to have so many options, eh?
