Re: BSG S4: The Hub

Oh Helo... His decision to obey or disobey orders he feels are ethically wrong is completely arbitrary... or otherwise he just makes these decisions based on plot necessity.

And I thought after all the visions Roslin had with Elosha, and her sudden desire to not let Balta die by her hands, she would have realized how wrong she has been to egotistically distrust everyone and do everything in secrecy. Maybe she'd have 2nd thoughts on lying to the Cylons considering the plan went without a hitch. But nope, she went on with her deception without batting an eye. I'm glad D'Anna and imaginary Elosha is calling her out. I hope they continue.

Re: BSG S4: Sine Qua Non

I don't understand why Lee is a good choice.

Adama & Roslin shut him out the second he went into government, and while he was in the military, he was known for not being cooperative and having a roller coaster relationship with his dad. So he's not THAT useful in terms of alliance with the military. I guess he's just better than Tom Zarek and only because Adama still thinks of Zarek as nothing but a criminal? And Lee's only contribution after joining government was stirring the pot, and then saying "I don't know" to any question asked of him. I foresee a lot of "I don't know" in this new government lead by Lee..

And I got distracted for 1 second during Lee vs Romos scene and next thing I know there's a gun out and a dead cat. Never fully understood that scene after that. Was it a mind game? The cat was imaginary all along? Romos want Lee to be president or not? What's his point? How does a gun and dead cat accomplish that point? I don't know anymore and didn't care enough to rewatch the whole scene ^^; I just want that cat back. I vote the cat for president.

Re: BSG S4: Guess What's Coming to Dinner?

I protest Sharon's overbearing mothering style! Hera CHOSE to run to 6!

Speaking of which, where was Hera for the whole Starbuck looking for Earth arc? For 2 months? Guess Cally and Chief never lectured Helo on putting husband and wife on the same mission when there's a kid at home...

Re: BSG S3: Crossroads, Part 2

Haha, thanks Tim for responding to a post from so long ago. Thought I was alone in here :P
I agree with you (and agree with my boyfriend). Gaius was a never-ending fountain of despicable frustration. I took solace in how his lawyer basically just rolled his eyes at him after the trial and was like "I had fun with you, but now I have better things to do. Bye!"

How that trial went basically sums up the reason I avoided all suggestions of becoming a lawyer back in career counselling in highschool. We all know Gaius is guilty of something. But what they could charge him with is completely different. Then there's so much arguing about technicalities, lying, manipulation... Ahhhhhh T_T

Re: BSG S4: He That Believeth in Me

I agree, Nick M! I'm surprised no one else is annoyed by Roslin. I understand her concerns but there are ways to relay that concern compassionately. She just striking up a hardline pose with arms crossed and arrogantly saying send Kara to the brig, no room for argument, is super hypocritical considering she herself was sharing visions with 2 Cylons and she never considered putting herself in the brig. At least Tigh and the other music gang discussed their fears of being Cylons.

Re: BSG S3: Crossroads, Part 2

I was surprised, not good or bad, just lol surprised, that the "mysterious music" turns out to be rock music from the 60s.

After my initial laughing fit, I started wondering if it might imply something about how BSG universe is supposed to fit into our timeline. Did the writers just choose that song because it's cool and the lyrics fits the theme? (Ahahahaha!!! This is as funny as if we find out Christianity heaven is true and after all those years of attending mass with their super slow and somber organ music, we find out God actually preferred hard rock, hahahahahaha). Or are they trying to say BSG storyline happens in the future of our timeline/universe?

Aaaaanyways, I'm commenting here because my boyfriend wouldn't let me talk about BSG at home because he is still angry with Lee and Baltar.

Re: BSG S3: Rapture

Boomer's regression was almost as bad as Jaime Lannister's regression.

The Cylons were perfectly happy after the attacks, with everyone agreeing with each other and they are rebuilding Caprica with cute little parks and cafes. But then because Boomer couldn't forget her life as a human (and partly because of Caprica Six's relationship with a human), suddenly the Cylons start questioning all their choices, which lead to them disagreeing and getting frustrated.
And now that all the Cylons are confused, Boomer suddenly became the most Cylon of them all with no interest in humans whatsoever. There was no transition period. She just goes from pro-human to suddenly against humans. Weird.

Re: BSG S3: The Passage

Can someone remind me why the Cylons wanted to settle on Earth in the first place? After New Caprica, before all the theological questions about the Hybrid and space between life and downloading, I thought they wanted to give up this cat and mouse chase with the humans and just settle down. In which case they have the choice of New Caprica, Caprica, and 11 other colonies that are already ready for habitation. Why did they choose Earth, knowing the humans also want to get there?

Re: BSG S3: Collaborators

I understand all the raw emotions and I thought it was nicely demonstrated here... but how did no one in 4 months thought for a second that Gaeta might be the informant?? There were exactly 2 humans with that level of clearance. It sure as hell wasn't Baltar, but no one considered him either. So did they think it was a Cylon? That opens a whole other can of worms over their relationship with the Cylons that obviously "the Circle" is not ready to address. Or they just assume it's a random nobody with magical access to classified material that they don't care if he got off the planet or not? They sure was quick to persecute people but gave zero thought to finding out who the hero informant was and if he was ok.
And the argument that Baltar couldn't have orchestrated the kill list, therefore Gaeta must have been the brains behind it was dumb. What did they think the Cylons were doing? Just sitting back passively and letting Gaeta run the show?
Speaking of the Cylon's role in this, I was a little surprised that Boomer had such a small role in this whole arc. It started with her refusing to reintegrate into Cylon society because she feels human and still attached to the Galactica crew and especially Chief. Then Caprica Six took over and Boomer just tags along looking lost. She didn't look sad at all that Chief has moved on, Chief had no moment of "omg it's MY Sharon", she didn't seem to try to reconnect with her Galactica crew and explain to them how she and Six has convinced the other Cylons to make peace with humans, she didn't look like she tried and failed and is sad about it.... Can't even tell if she IS Boomer other than that 1 conversation she had with Cally in the jail and she ended up doing nothing. Was this explained in the webisodes?

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

That attack on Andres' camp was necessary because i seriously doubt those raptors have enough room for everyone.

Re: BSG S2: Epiphanies

What I don't understand is why Roslin decides that, on her deathbed, the most important thing she needs to say is "let's kill the baby we have known for months to be not 'normal' but have decided to keep until now." She had zero new info that lead her to this decision. Dr. Cotter's 'odd findings' don't count because it was dumb of him as a doctor to expect otherwise to begin with. Nothing says the odd findings were bad, it just confirms that a Cylon is the mother, which is not news considering the baby is literally growing inside said Cylon.

What she DID have new info about is that she just realized she has seen the VICE PRESIDENT having an affair with a known Cylon before. Is this not important information to tell people hours before your death, considering the VP is going to be president in the event of your death???

Regarding the Cylon sympathizers, it would have worked better if there was any indication that the Cylons want a peaceful resolution... considering they started with a sneak attack as opposed to request for surrender, not sure how anyone thought Cylons even want peace.

Another weird part is it appears that Starbuck has not told anyone about the new Cylon she met at the Farm on Caprica... There didn't seem to be any photo/drawing of him in the known Cylon folder.
