The United Nations has been compared to Battlestar Galactica. I even heard Whoopi Goldberg on the radio giving a speech (in which, among other things, she praised the UN's efforts in curtain selection).
This from the UN website:
17 March 2009 – The United Nations is co-hosting a discussion with the stars and creators of the television show Battlestar Galactica today, exploring themes which are important to both – human rights, terrorism, children and armed conflict, and reconciliation between civilians and faiths.

Does anyone else find this all a bit, like, WEIRD?
