I was actually dissapointed that there were no President Rosalyn references in this one, seems like it'd be prime fodder for references and riffs

otherwise, an excellint Rifftrax, one of the frakkin' best, right up there with LOTR :)
We want a Mac Rifftrax player, NOW!, no more delays, no more vaporware!

Not everyone has watched the new BSG.   Maybe Mike & Co. have no interest.

Didn't Space Mutiny establish that the guys just don't do Battlestar Galactica references? ;)  Anyway, if there's any type of Riff that's a complete non-joke, it's "Hey, that person was so-and-so in a different movie" references.

She really wasn't in many scenes, although I would have liked to hear one joke.  No big deal though.

As opposed to the Legend discs where Mike would spend a minute or more comparing NOTLD to The Shakiest Gun In the West and then go "Never mind".....

I mean, WTF?

Along similar lines, Im surprised there was only one Data joke during Brent Spiner's screentime.

True, those aren't particularly funny either. Like Bill thinking Star Trek VI was a remake of The Big Valley. Or like in Codename: Diamondhead where they say "Hey, it's Lovejoy!" virtually every time Ian McShane's onscreen? Repetition doesn't always make things funny.

Didn't stop them from mentioning "Stands With A Fist"!   (Dances with Wolves)

That movie is part of the "everyday culture".  BSG is a cult favorite.

It's also on The Sci-Fi Channel.  Maybe they finally realized what a raw deal they really got over there and don't want to promote them.

That didn't exactly stop them making references to The Fly every time Goldblum was on screen for the first half hour.

Wasn't she in Dances With Wolves as well playing Kevin Costner's love interest?
Being a genocidal maniac is not one of my turn ons.

Is it weird to hear the Safety Dance in my head watching Game of Thrones?

I haven't purchased this Riff Trax yet, and I really would love to but I don't own a copy of Independance Day, but were there and Dances with Wolves jabs at all in there?

I am still a little puzzled why they didnt make any BSG references in Space Mutiny.  It has probably been answered somewhere on this vast internet, I just havent built up the motivation to look.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.
