  • In preparation for the Battlestar Galactica skit in the Portlandia episode "One Moore Episode", Brownstein began watching the series.[1]
"It was a bit of life imitating art. When we started shooting the skit's first segment, I started watching [Battlestar Galactica]. So by the time Moore and the actors showed up on the set, we were crazed fans. And as Edward James Olmos was leaving, he gave this wonderful speech about Portlandia, and it was like, 'Here he is, giving us a speech, but we're not on the spaceship!' When you become a fan of something, it does become more difficult to separate reality from fiction, so for us everything became more compounded. That's a long way of saying that, yes, I am a huge BSG fan now."[1]

Billy Campbell[edit]

  • Sci Fi Channel's president, Bonnie Hammer, stated he "literally assaulted me, trying to do whatever he possibly could to bribe me to have me bribe Ron Moore and David Eick to create a character arc inside Battlestar Galactica. That is the only show he ever wanted to be in. That is the only show he would do for free. Billy Campbell, literally, saying, 'Give me an arc, any kind of arc, in Battlestar Galactica, please.' And it was very hard to get away from.[2][3]

Harlan Ellison[edit]

Colin Ferguson[edit]

  • Colin Ferguson said "Yeah, Battlestar. They're the cool kids. We all wish we were on Battlestar."[3][5]

John Hodgman[edit]

James McAvoy[edit]

  • When Jamie Bamber presented an Empire Award to him for Wanted, James McAvoy said, "Oh my god, I'm receiving an award from the CAG! This is amazing. Not everyone is going to get that, but I really do." [7]

Jennifer Morrison[edit]

Ed Quinn[edit]

  • According to Tahmoh Penikett, Ed Quinn invited him and Aaron Douglas to watch some fights and "couldn't shut up about the show."[5] He is good friends with both actors.[3]

John Rhys-Davies[edit]

Kevin Smith[edit]

Quentin Tarantino[edit]

  • According to Grace Park who hosted the Asian Excellence Awards with Daniel Dae Kim, "in the after-party, he wouldn't stop gabbing about it. I felt like I had to baby-sit him, he was so excited. He just went on for about 10 minutes. I got so uncomfortable, I had to leave." Afterwards, she checked online and noticed that before the show, Tarantino said he had wanted to meet Grace Park.[5][3]

Wachowski brothers[edit]

Eric Wareheim[edit]

"Battlestar Galactica. I love Cylons, but I'd make them all nude."[11]

Joss Whedon[edit]

Robin Williams[edit]

  • According to Aaron Douglas, that while in Los Angeles on January 10, 2007, he met Robin Williams who said to him that Battlestar Galactica was "the best show on TV. I don't miss it. You tell Eddie, I've known Eddie for years, you go up there and tell everybody that's my favorite show. It's the best show on TV. What are you shooting? Why are you here? How come you're not shooting? Is the Chief dead?"[5][3]
