Serious black mark for Andrew Bolt

Andrew, the Cylons are pretend robots, not aliens. They were originally made by the same fictional humans they’re trying to exterminate. Duh.


Fancy not knowing that. I don’t know how we’re supposed to take anything you say seriously any more.

NOTE: I would’ve uploaded this to Pure Poison, but there’s so much non-trivial stuff being pointed out about recent conduct on Andrew’s blog (what are his moderators DOING?) that I didn’t want to dilute it with this. Even though for many this will be the most damning indictment of all.

  1. tsk tsk.

    Battlestar Galactica is just ‘mormons in space’ anyway.

  2. Oh, now you’ve ruined the ending for me.

  3. They pick the richest among them and then get him to run for President?

  4. If I’m not mistaken, back in the original series the Cylons were created by an alien race, who they then rose up against and destroyed – so, they were technically alien robots. Which just goes to show, Andy’s several decades behind the rest of civilisation.

  5. And I’ll say it to myself, just in case everybody else is too polite:


  6. I think you’ll find it’s spelt “n3rd”.

  7. N00b 🙂

  8. You’re all nerds.

    I can see all of you standing around at a Doctor Who conventions asking the actors about plot discrepancies and expecting a serious answer.

  9. Never give up,
    never surrender!

  10. TZ – Ah yes I do recall the BG crew coming back to Earth and not having finger prints.

    Keri – yes just like the comic book shop guy did in the simpsons at a Star Trek convention.

  11. Keri – You mean you wouldn’t like to see Romana brought back from E-space to play companion to the new whipper-snapper Matt Smith’s Doctor?!

  12. Jayne – Maybe, but I certainly wouldn’t ask the actor who plays Romana about continuity issues or plot holes and expect her to know the answer.

  13. I’m still puzzled as to why these actors got an audience at the UN…Or am I being even dumber than I usually am ?

  14. Define “an audience at the UN”.

    They got to use one of the rooms for a discussion on issues explored by the show which have some relevance in the real world. They were not addressing the General Assembly or anything like that.

  16. Hello Jeremy,

    Here’s my definition of an audience :

    “And so its creators and stars probably felt nothing odd about being invited to UN headquarters in New York to give 500 representatives, staff and international terrorism experts the benefit of their wisdom on human rights in armed conflict.”

  17. Here’s a less misleading description of the audience than that snippet:

    “The panel, which included executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick and stars Mary McDonnell and Edward James Olmos as well as four U.N. officials, was organized by the U.N. as part of a new effort to link the organization’s concerns to the creative community. It was held in the Economic and Social Council Chamber, an imposing room full of rows of delegate seating facing a dais on one end of the room. In the audience were fans of the show, network executives, members of the media and more than 100 high school students, who were there representing Think Quest NYC, an educational outreach project.

  18. Hello Jeremy,

    Thank you for that definitely puts a different perspective on the gathering.

    I suspected there must be more (or should I say less ?) to this story than Bolt’s link, but then again, these days you just never know…
