Cybersurfing: Cylons mirror post-9/11 reality

Vancourver24Hours.com offers an interview with UBC professor C. W. Marshall, who has edited a book of academic papers title Cylons in America”Critical Studies in Battlestar Galactica. The papers offer a scholarly examination of issues raised in the current television series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, particularly those relating to living in post-9/11 America.

“The discussions that go on about contemporary issues are much more sophisticated and nuanced and are given much more time than they’re given on 24-hour news stations,” says Marshall. “I think we get a better examination of the psychology of what’s going on in Iraq and Afghanistan in the science fiction setting than we do watching CNN.”
