BSG - Last Supper?
Is it just me or is the above image (screenshot from the Battlestar Galactica website at Scifi.com) reminiscent of the Last Supper?
So -- what did y'all think of last night's season premier? I'll give it a generous 8 out of 10. I do hope that the show recovers a bit over this final season.
And what of Balthar's seemingly heart-felt self-sacrificial prayer? Shades of Gethsemane? Abraham & Isaac? I find the theology of BSG to be interesting -- the whole monotheism/One True God vs. polytheism angle and so on. By this time, however, I don't really think the writers have anything coherent or substantial in mind ...
