Seattle Times interviews Ron Moore

This interview with BSG executive producer and writer, Ron Moore, is about a week old, but not many sites are linking to it, so here you go.

Reborn "Galactica" can do battle with the best of sci-fi

Q: Do you think the show can appeal to the mainstream viewer?

A: The challenge to the show at this point is ironic in that the name, I think, now holds people back from the show. Initially, the name "Battlestar Galactica" got the show made and it got people to tune in. Now we've gotten to a place where literally the viewers that would like this show won't watch it because of the name. And it's hard to jump over that, because I think the people that would really like this show are the people that watch "The Sopranos," "The Shield," "Nip/Tuck," "Six Feet Under." If you like classic, high-quality dramas I think you'll like this show, but "Battlestar Galactica" on the Sci Fi channel just doesn't register.

Q: Maybe you should call it "Chicks in Space."

A: Almost. We're almost at that point.
