Re: BSG S3: The Eye of Jupiter

What a ridiculous cliffhanger... not believable in the least.

Re: BSG S3: The Passage

I don't think I've ever had such a change of heart about a fictional character before. Starbuck was probably my favorite through Season 1 and 2. But post New Caprica she's just been a spite-filled hateful person, and that apology... eh, just assuaging her guilt it seemed like. Kudos to Sackhoff for pulling it off and making it believable.

Re: BSG S3: Hero

I found it quite believable. The human mind has a pretty good capacity to bury guilt and disturbing feelings, only to have them come up to the surface in a big way when triggered.

Re: BSG S3: Collaborators

Very good episode, but I kept wondering why Tyrol never even considered the fact that Gaeta might be the source until the evidence came out. Obviously someone was the source, and it had to be someone with a lot of access. Well, I know why, dramatic tension... and it worked for sure, just bugged me a bit.

I've always really liked Starbuck as a character, but her bloodlust here was pretty ugly. It makes sense of course, she's been through psychological hell and back. The "beg" thing was obviously about power and humiliation. She wanted blood, and wanted it bad. Remember how quickly she voted guilty?

Re: BSG S3: Exodus, Part 2

Wow... I was sad to see the New Caprica arc end, in my opinion it's been the highlight of the series (so far, I'm watching it for the first time quite late in the game), but what an episode. 4 stars for me. The hangar deck scene alone does it. The Tigh and Starbuck arcs were masterfully done, and masterfully acted.

Re: BSG S3: Occupation/Precipice

Naha has it right. The Cylon occupation makes plenty of sense. We were never told that the Cylon's were ready to be buddies with humans, only that Six and Boomer were able to convince the Cylon population that genocide had been a mistake. The Cylons ran with it but not in the benevolent form Six/Boomer might have wanted, and we see them struggle with that in the episode. The Cylon belief appears to be that, with enough time, they will be able to force the humans to accept their religious Dogma. It's an irrational belief, but quite plausible. I thought the Starbuck plotline was basically meant to be symbolic of the situation as a whole.

Fantastic episode. Riveting. This is BSG at it's best.

Re: BSG S2: Lay Down Your Burdens, Part 2

Sackhoff was brilliant. Yeah she was annoying as hell, that's the point. To the commenter who said it was overacting, and not relatable, seriously?? Spend more time around wasted 20-something women, and you'll get it.

Re: BSG S2: Lay Down Your Burdens, Part 1

Love Dean Stockwell! I thought this was a 3.5, close to 4 star episode... the Starbuck/Anders reunion, even though it came right before the cliffhanger, made the episode feel complete to me.

Re: BSG S2: Downloaded

Six snapped the babies neck as a mercy kill, so it wouldn't slowly die from radiation poisoning or starvation or something horrific like that if it wasn't killed in one of the blasts. I thought that was pretty clear, so Six's moral wrestling does go all the way back to the beginning.
Anyway... awesome episode, one of the best, and so far the highlight of season 2 for me.

Re: BSG S2: Resurrection Ship, Part 2

Easy way out? Maybe, but I loved the Six kills Cain bit... I cheered when she did it. This show is complex enough and deep enough in general that I don't mind a tidy ending like this. And sometimes, things do work out in surprisingly convenient ways. It's not the norm, but it's still quite plausible. And I have to disagree on Cain not being evil. She's the definition of it to me. Oh it all makes sense to her sure. It all made sense to Hitler too.
