Just on the New Survivors, when it was first announced on this site, some posters made some ugly comments on The BBC's reverse discrimination, http://www.quietearth.us/articles/2006/ ... -Survivors
alledgedly loading the cast with minority actors... After being a fan of the original series for so long, it is hard to see anyone but the original cast in their roles. But I like the current series, the actors seem well picked for their parts. By the time this series ends, I am sure I will feel exactly the same way about this bunch as I do about the originals.
For me, the Beeb could use little green men, or big blue women... I wouldnt care as long as I got my serve of quality British Sci Fi. (which may well have the above blue women and green men in the script
Perhaps the claims of reverse discrimination have stayed with me, because it struck me at the end of series one, that most of the truly bad people in the series (so far) IE The Bad (head) Doctor in the under ground lab, The attempted rapists, the bully with the shot gun , the Fagenesqe character and his woman... Are all white.
About the only exception to this is the female government Minister, but she has been portrayed as being forced into a compromise situation. (I am holding out on judging Tom Price, he keeps on threatening to become a team player, but I dont have a good feeling).
As stated, this is merely my observation, I am not a card carrying member of the KKK. I view all races exactly the same way... Potential Zombies.... please feel free to shoot holes in my theory.
