“Swept the pigeon” refers to a nonsensical scene in the last episode of the sci-fi TV series Battlestar Galactica. In the last episode of the show, a drunken main character is filmed as he attempts to chase a pigeon out of his apartment with a broom.
Fanboys and shippers of the series maintain that the “swept the pigeon” scene was the epitome of “high art”. Discriminating viewers maintain, quite correctly, that the “swept the pigeon” scene was complete nonsense and was only added to the final episode in a feeble attempt by the producer to disguise the show’s lack of story continuity, unresolved plot holes, and nihilistic, destructive ending.
That last episode of Battlestar Galactica really swept the pigeon.
