A Removable Feast

I remember when the following story about the then-upcoming Battlestar Galactica show (the 1978 version) appeared in TV Guide. (For our younger readers: back in the Pleistocene, the magazine TV Guide was pretty much the only way of knowing which shows were on which channels at which times. The magazine still exists, but pointlessly.)

Unfortunately, when the promised banquet scene was shot, no one realised the food was anything significant and so they only shot the actors’ faces, and all this work was for nothing:

SciFi SongFest, Songs 224-225

Two songs about the perils of galactic travel ….

224. Blondie, “Dragonfly” (1982):

225. Leslie Fish, “Ballad of Transport 18” (2002):
