Re: BSG S3: A Measure of Salvation

The discussion for this episode is really interesting, because it made me reevaluate my view on Helo's actions and the general moral situation that this episode presents. Before this, I've always defended Helo's actions because we know that the Cylons are, in actuality, people, with feelings and the like. I'm looking at this from the window of my monitor, though. I know all the things that are happening on the show. The Cylons have become more sympathetic in the episodes of late because we're being fed that through the drama and writing. The humans in this show are not experiencing the same thing that I am, though.

So in the end, you have to look at things through the characters' points of view. What the Cylons did, no matter how much they regret it (some of them, anyway), are not excused from their actions. In fact, they are still chasing after the humans and trying to find earth; if they weren't so actively trying to destroy humanity, there might be a tiny bit of credence for the argument of morality. It's not about committing genocide, it's about surviving, like other posters said, and due to the unique nature of Cylon existence, genocide is truly the *only* way to achieve victory.

Of course, I *am* just watching a show, and of course I don't want the Cylons to be killed, because they're a hell of an antagonist. So in that respect, go Helo! He should have been court-martialed, though, for the sake of continuity and drama. Wouldn't that have been an interesting twist, Sharon talking to Helo from the outside of the cell instead of inside.

Re: TNG S4: Devil's Due

I actually liked Devil's Due a lot. It had flaws, sure, but it kept me thoroughly entertained. I thought the woman who played Ardra did a fantastic job. There was something quite intriguing and "Q-ish" about her.

Re: BSG S4: The Face of the Enemy

This is a bit late, but I'd like to comment on Gaeta's conversation with Tigh. When Gaeta said, "Because you're a Cylon," that was downright chilly. He used just the right tone and inflection to show his utter distrust and distaste.

Re: BSG S4: Escape Velocity

limey, that scene was both funny and awe-inspiring to me. I definitely got chills watching him invisibly pulled up. I was surprised no one really reacted to it, I was like, "He's practically floating!"

Re: BSG S4: The Ties That Bind

I really liked Cally throughout the show, which makes her descent into what she becomes all the more disturbing. She was this innocent girl in the miniseries but the war and the baby degraded her spirit and made her lose hope. This episode was powerful, but really disconcerting.
