Regarding Tigh, I'm thinking he's gonna be messed up for a while, and might not return to active duty, at least in the immediate future, and the way he deals with the loss of Ellen and everything that went down on New Caprica makes for a great storyline.

And I know Anders was to protect Mia, but I think things changed once Adama showed up. I mean, all hell broke loose, and it got very confusing as to who was doing what. And I'm sure his determination to find Starbuck played into it.

It was a great twist involving the kids, though. I thought for sure that girl would end up being Starbuck's daughter, and how she would have to deal with that going forward. They really surprised me with that one.

And of course the Cylons have Hera, so I can't wait to see how that gets played out.

So many stories within the main story, so many complex characters, so many dark situations. It just sucks you in and never lets go...

On the way flight back from Boston, they showed a compilation of both seasons and I got hooked on it!
I have not seen a single episode and it is now on my TiVo's Season Pass!
Can wait to see the next episode.



btw....

My sib's been staying out late on fridays recently...so she calls me up to tell me so i can come over and watch Cable for BG. So sweet of her!

when I house-sat for her recently that's when i caught "the story so far" . Otherwise in the past I've seen mostly 1st season in dribs & drabs repeats at her place.

I missed LAST week's....and when

sinse i hadn't seen late week's NOR had the time to read any on-line synopsis this PAST week......
...of course, at first i thought Baltar's dream was real.....until Laura "approached" him.
Then I figured SOMETHING had to be OFF!
SO he's in "toasterland" now.

WOW....what intense drama all around!

Baltar's cluessness because of his his self-agrandizement." oh, I should of said that first" comment after ? #6 left.

The "circle [jury] of justice". They don't say "war is Hell" for nothing.
War the "gift" that keeps on giving. I'm not a complete pacifist, but you gotta be pretty damn sure..........[speaking about here on Earth]

and when the [sorry, i don't know all the character's names yet] that guy who finally stood up & left ... saying he was done fighting that war.

Starbuck [as trauma victim] first not geing able to be kissed, then later wanting to claw her REAL husband's eyes out for "looking at" her. And finally some begining healing for her as she was able to hug & kiss him at the end.

Attacking & dragging <sp>Gaetta nearly to his execution....until ? "Chief" caught the comments about the dog bowl. {I saw all of that stuff previously.

I see you mentioned stuff about the babies. Couldn't quite figure that out. But that's OK. I'll be on-line later this week and catch up.

ANd yes the Truth & Reconcilation approach.....see where that takes them or some.


Reminds me of the years of watching Babylon Five, and reading the Message Boards on it! {not here}

Lee looked crushed when he said that...


I had company on Friday and I just got around to watching this week's episode. Holy shit.

This show continues to amaze me with the topicality of the story lines... vigilante justice (though secretly government sanctioned)... secrets kept... trauma survivors (Starbuck)...

And Baltar was crying again! He's the weepiest man on television. EVER.


whew, I need to go watch something comical after that...

I finally got to see the episode today finally!
Really good but is it me or is it that the episodes look even shorter, that or there are too many damned commercials?

Good ep. Love that tubby Lee's going to finally get himself into shape.

I don't know if they're short, but they do go fast. It never seems like an hour. I don't think the commercials are excessive either, unlike Lost which is friggin near 50/50 show to commercial. I'd imagine BSG would have a lot of commerncials, being expensive to make, but it doesn't bother me if that's the case, never even noticed.

I remember in the podcast for Exodus pt. 2, Ron Moore was talking about how making BSG breaks the bank with all the graphics and CGI.

With a popular show like BSG though, wouldn't it be okay to assume that SciFi/Universal would allot it a bigger budget? Just wondering.

But maybe Beav, as you said, they do go fast... or maybe we're just so riveted to our seats that we don't even notice until it's over.

My sister got me watching and I love it.

She is planning on going to the convention next year. She went the first year and said it was cool.

I hope that she's going to take lots of pics!
I always wanted to go to those but they're in California IIRC.
