NYC FINALE: ATTENDEES TAKE OATH, NO LEAKING
A very small audience in New York -about a hundred people- saw the final cut of the two-hour season finale of Battlestar Galactica on Monday (3/16)evening. The episode had been flown on the red eye from Los Angeles the previous evening. Mark Stern, the executive VP in charge of original programming for the network that we now apparently are supposed to call Syfy, said he had not even seen it; this would probably be the only screening before the show aired, he said.
An NDA and an oral pledge by the audience prevents these attendees, nearly all of them media, many from trade publications, from describing the episode in any way. The pledge was conducted by creator Ron Moore, who made each attendee at the New York Times' Times Center raise his right hand and repeat: "I swear not to reveal any of the spoilers I see tonight."
