Today’s New York Times carries aÂ sympathetic overview of the latest Battlestar Galactica series.
Included was this bit of trivia:
“Audience sympathies are generally with Laura, a middle-aged woman and a seeming softie who may be a stand-in for the new sci-fi viewers, who are increasingly women …”
This declaration by the NY Times television critic is of particular interest since the received wisdom about Science Fiction, particularly television SF, is that the audience is predominantly that O-So-Worshipped-Demographic of Young Males.
What do you all think?
