I was just able to watch it now. Great episode.

I'm curious to know what is ailing the little girl.

As for the final five, I don't know if all of them will be people we know, but it's obvious at least one of them will be.

And you know Lucy Lawless' character will be back. Seems to be a fairly simple procedure of just turning the switch back on.

Well, I can't read this whole thread if I want to remain unspoiled. But I've done it again ... gotten myself hooked on a show.

I just watched the pilot/miniseries. I was hoping I wouldn't like it so I wouldn't have to catch up on yet another TV show via DVD. But no, I loved it within the first five minutes.

Damn Netflix ... the first disc of season 1 is a "long wait"!

But not as sincere as I look. I did enjoy Season 1, though, I must admit.

I remember that episode.

It's right around that time when the show really took off. The last episodes of Season 1 are just

That's when they lost me, the 1st half of season 2. Maybe I will go back and watch the whole thing on DVD. It just seemed repetitive to me, and a little too far fetched, even when I totally try to suspend all disbelief. I'll rewatch and see if I have a different perspective on season 2.

I'm not feeling the love stories they got going on. But the Baltar storyline = I dig it.

Well, it looks like they've wrapped those stories up for the time being, which is good. They could only go so far with it.

The jury episode should be cool, and Tom Zarek returns...

Of course, it skips next week because of the Super Bowl.

Yeah, I saw that it's two weeks away. I'd much rather watch BSG, but cest la vie.

For awhile (before the mid-season break), I was interested in the whole love story thing... but I think it's played out. How many times can they get Lee and Kara together and then keep them apart? I hope that they don't do too much more of that for awhile.

But I'm seriously loving the Balter/Cylon/torture storyline, they really intrigued me with it and I hope they continue to play it out it the next few episodes. So Baltar's not one of the five... are the final five CHILDREN? I'm still thinking about that scene. And the whole issue of putting Baltar on drugs (and taking away his free will) was a difficult issue.

Bring on the trial!

While I'm pretty much over the love story, I have to give big props to the editors this week. I thought it was absolutely masterful cutting between the two storylines. Very complementary and very tension building.

I don't think the Final Five are children. They appeared to be the same height as her as far as I could tell.

So what was going on in Baltar's vision when all those children were around him?

Thank gods this time they redeemed themselves. I LOVED this episode. I have to say, the writers and producers and whomeverthefrak had a hand in the ep really know what they did.

And the fact that there wasn't a lot of subplots made it so much better, that we could concentrate on the plot at hand, and not have our attentions diverted to other things.

I love the Baltar line... and Uber, I think that was the plot "spoiler" that my bf was talking about, with Baltar showing up in the resurrection pod. I was somewhat surprised, but more 'd when the Sixes started ripping his skin... that was wow...

All in all, the whole ep... WOW. Talk about redemption. I am a bit peeved about the Superbowl threatening BSG's ratings that they have to postpone the ep until two weeks later, but I'm willing to wait... if they keep churning eps like Sunday nights...

By the by, did anyone get to see the extended version of the bonus scene? As usual I'm too late for the party.

I did see the bonus scene, which was a brief exchange between Roslin and Caprica. It was just Roslin asking for information. It was rather quick and didn't really add anything to the story.

Every show does that, though. It's pointless going up against the Super Bowl - it's the only thing people watch that night. I doubt even a show like Desperate Housewives will be on.

Hey party people. Redhotswami mentioned in another thread that she has X-Files action figures and she could make a movie with them How do you feel about this plot? I posted it in the other thread, but since I don't think there's any BSG fans in there they probably don't know what I was going on about. Anyway:

DO. IT. I think midway through the Death Star should come into view, turns out Mulder and Scully are really brother/sister, Cancer Man is Darth Vader's father (dude had the midochlorians to be that bad ass) and the Well Manicured Man is in league with Palapatine. Gob Bluth needs to command a Battlestar, maybe the Galactica? No, a different one, one thought lost in the Klingon Invasion of '79. Turns out Picard stole the cloaking device, snuck it to the Lone Gunman who in turn smuggled it on board the Battlestar Truth. In fact - and here's the fucking twist that will tie everything together - the phrase "The Truth is Out There" was meant to be taken literally. The Thruth is the Battlestar that can save humanity from the deadly bees we see in the movie - but it can't move because (DUN DUN DUN DUUUN) - It RAN OUT OF BLACK OIL! So we load Krychek, who's a Cylon, with black oil, teleport him to the Galatica, BAM, we're all saved. Oh, man, this is gonna rock. We NEED to work Boba Fett in there. This will suck without Fett.

OH - and just when it looks lost, cause it turns out Gob Bluth is really working for the Lgion of Doom who shows up? Yup. Buck Fucking Rogers. BAM. Get on that.
