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.

Well, she's the presidents wife in this movie, she's the president in BSG.  There's a bit more of an opening for a joke looking at it that way.

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?

Well there was certainly at least one reference, not necessarily a jab though.

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.

Shoot, it's been stuck in my head since I heard Mike recite it on his podcast.

A late reply...

That's not actually the case. While the guys may not have made riffs about the actual BG, they have done a couple of riffs referring to an event where a fan of the show drove his motorcycle off a bridge because the original Battlestar Galactica got cancelled.

Dang, here I am innocently reading and someone had to go a put that darn shnappi song into my head... <kirk voice>SHNAAAAAAAPPIIII</kirk voice>

Been waiting for ID4 to come out on in .riff format but couldn't wait any longer, finally watched it last night, I'm not surprised at the lack of a BSG reference, if you listen to the "data" reference they did that so quietly it seemed like they were embarrassed by it.

Also "stands with fist" is a much better joke than "president of the fleet/former colonies/whatever they call themselves in the fleet".

Later,
