I'm betting Gaeta and Tom Zarek eventually get executed for treason. Wouldn't that be interesting?

I would think so, provided that's the penalty for it. Gaeta is dead to me.

Baltar's character kills me. His trying to reason out why he had to leave was excellent. I can't quite grasp why I like him so much as he's such a piece of shit. I kinda think that's everyone's take on him though. It takes amazing writing and acting to pull that off.

I heard this season was going to be dark, but holy cow, I wasn't expecting this dark.

Hoooooly fracking shit.

Even though I saw the bits on the preview about the mutiny, I seriously wasn't expecting it to be that brutally intense.

On a related note, I've always liked Tigh as a character, but never had quite pinned down what I thought of Tigh, the man. He's got some pretty significant character flaws, but these last few episodes have seriously bumped up my respect for him.

Agreed, Diemen. You know, I thought when he found out he was a Cylon he'd fall even farther into self-loathing, but what's strange is that he's really stepped it up this season, found some actual purpose. He certainly has one of the most interesting character arcs of anyone on the show.

And Starbuck taking out those mutineers was HARDCORE. Then when she was fighting Adama to ice that prisoner...man. Shit was hot.

Absolutely. I expected much the same thing, but really, if anything he's been carrying Adama through the post-Earth mess.

I think my jaw literally dropped when that first marine got shot and the camera cut to Starbuck.

Haven't seen any of this show, but am really keen to give it a chance. Is it similar in style though to, say, Joss Whedon's stuff? If so, I might not be so keen..

Not at all. It's very dark. It's more like a political / military type show. Not much humor in it really, aside from the occasional one liner.

It's too busy dealing deeply with political insight for a joke.

If we can't convince the Daniel Lanoises of the world, what hope do we have with anyone else?

Cool, thanks, I don't mind the humour but I was just wary of it being a kind of soapie in space. Not meaning to single out Whedon either, I think he's talented within his niche market..

Deep political insights, eh? That could ruin it for me...

I just watched the most recent episode. Wow, that was fucking great/intense.

Beav, I feel the same way as you regarding Baltar. He's the most well acted character on the show, in my opinion.

And, yes, Tigh is hardcore this season.

Great, great stuff.

I have really mixed emotions about Baltar. I agree that the acting is impeccable, I'm just not sure what the writers' intentions are with him. It seem that after he found his new home proselytizing in the cargo hold, the writers couldn't decide whether he's comic relief or a serious foil to Adama/Roslin. I liked his interaction in this past episode, but I hope he gets more plot time in the coming episodes to expand on the themes started with the scenes he shared with Roslin.

I have a feeling that the lion's share of the remaining episodes are going to be pretty epic in scope. Can't wait to see what happens tomorrow.

Agreed again, Diemen. I think Callis is doing A+ work with C+ material. He's barely keeping the guy afloat.

There better be a big payoff to his arc by the end of this thing.
