I’m a big fan of BSG’s Imperious Leader Ron Moore, but as long as I’m dissing him on race, I might as well diss him on sexual orientation as well.
Moore used to criticise Star Trek for not having any gay characters. When BSG started he said he hoped to include a gay relationship along the way. Whenever he was asked about it he would say something like, “I still want to, we just need to find the right way to do it.”
Finally he delivered on his promise – by giving us a lesbian couple in which one has the other raped and tortured and the other kills the first in revenge. That was the right way he was looking for? Ooooookay ….
(Shades of JMS criticising Trek for no gay characters, promising a gay relationship on B5, and then giving us a barely-hinted-at lesbian relationship in which one of the two women immediately has a braincrash, turns evil, and leaves the show.)
