The Last Supper – Battlestar Galactica

Recently the season & series finale of Battlestar Galactica aired globally. As part of the massive push to promote this much anticipated event by Sci-Fi.com geekdom and represent the interests of the general mainstream public, the series producers commisioned a photo shoot that portray’s the characters in the seminal “Last Supper” painting, as immortalised by Leonardo da Vinci.

This reminded me of a number of other well known screen folk lore variants that I have seen over the years. Each brings a smile to my face for the endless religious connotations they imply.

Tom Lovejack’s Blog however tops them all in terms of collating all the different approaches in his entry below, which he updates on a regular basis as entries hit the WWW.
