Recently, the SCI FI network announced that they’d be holding free advanced screening events for BATTLESTAR GALACTICA RAZOR on November 12th 2007 in select cities across America. [See battlestarevent.com]
While we at theTVaddict.com applaud SCI FI’s attempt to spread the word and promote one of the most incredible shows on television. We can’t help but feel a little disappointed — albeit not surprised — that at least one Canadian city wasn’t included as part of the advanced screening event.
Not only is BATTLESTAR GALACITCA filmed in the beautiful city of Vancouver British Columbia. You can thank Canadian talent for most of the show’s award winning production values, outdoor locations, not to mention the beautiful Tricia Helfer [an Alberta native].
Canadians keep GALACTICA running smoothly [Aaron Douglas, Tahmoh Penikett], make us laugh and cry [Kate Vernon, Donnelly 'Doc Cottle' Rhodes], have lost their life for the cause [Paul Campbell] and are even secretly Cylons [Michael Hogan and once again, Aaron Douglas].
With that in mind, it’s time to make our voices heard. Let’s take a page from Chief Tyrol’s book and stand up for what we believe in [think WWTD!]. Let’s not sit idly by as Canadian television fans are yet again forgotten.
Please post away in the comments below if you’d like to see Toronto and Vancouver get a RAZOR screening alongside our American friends on November 12. Thousands of fans can’t be ignored. SO SAY WE ALL.
