Re: BSG S3: Taking a Break from All Your Worries

I LOVED this episode! Easy 3.5 borderline 4. It must be clear by now that Baltar is by far the most compelling character on this show, played by the most capable actor of the bunch. He NEVER dissapoints. Every scene where you think the character will shrivel up and die, he just comes back more forceful than before.

It does bring up a question I keep having, what exactly, did they think Baltar was supposed to do? The Cylons had complete control of the colony, was he supposed to put on supermans cape, and personally kill the baddies. The cylons even said if he didn't sign the death warrants, they would just kill Baltar and do it anyways, does Adam REALLY think Baltar had any way of stopping them?

It brings me to the biggest problem I have with the entire series, which is how Baltar "happened" to get elected literally right before they found New Caprica, and were occupied by the Cylons. Would Roslin really have been any different a president? But it sure makes it convinient for the writers or BSG. I just wish someone would ask Roslin how she would have handled it differently. For god sakes, she falsified and election, and she hates Baltar because he didn't want the 'cylons to blow his head off???

My fave line was "I had a gun to my head, you chose to serve" to Geata.

Oh, and yeah, the love square thing wasn't bad, but it was very out of place in this episode. I feel that this will all be worth it if Kara and Lee never do get together, but if in the last episode they realize they were meant to be or something, than i think this is all cheap drama. I do like the concept of never actually attaining the lvoe you desire, and if BSG stays realistic, they will never let Lee adn Kara actually be together.
