Re: BSG S1: Kobol's Last Gleaming, Part 2

I think that Adama sent Boomer to destroy the basestar because he had complete trust in her. A trust surpassed only by how much he trusted Lee and Starbuck. From flashbacks through out the series and conversations he had with her and Athena, it is clear he had a fondness for her. One of the most touching scenes involving Boomer is the flashback to when Boomer is standing before Adama and Tigh and expecting to be washed out because she cannot make as good landing in her Raptor. Adama and Tigh tease her and do not wash her out and it is quite clear that they were not going to wash her out regardless. Looking back one of the most loyal pilots that Adama had was Boomer and it stands to reason that he would send only his most trusted and loyal pilots on this mission.

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

I had heard of this show but had not seen any of it in all the time it had been aired. I remembered the campy series from the 70's and had only heard about this new "re-imagining." I had also seen the promos for "Battlestar Galactica: The Final Episodes" for a month on the Sci-Fi Channel.

This episode, "Guess What's Coming to Dinner" is the first time I saw anything having to BSG. It was on Jan. 2nd of this year when I first saw it. My wife and I had seperated the day before. Having nowhere else to go I went to my mom's house for a while. I got on the computer looking to watch a movie or something on Hulu to get my mind off of my marriage crashing in such spectacular fashion.

I found episodes of BSG on there and "Guess What's Coming to Dinner" was the oldest one.

I was sucked in by the writing, the music, the acting and the documentary style cinematography that made the dark subject matter even more real and viceral! I let out an audible gasp when Six was assassinated.

Not knowing what was going on, the early scene with the Baseship jumping in and Tigh stopping a massacre with his command of "Weapons Hold!" was heartstopping.

I was enthralled and engrossed by this show from the first few minutes. When this was over, I watched the next episode online. By the time I watched "Revelations" I was kicking myself for having been blissfully unaware that a show of this caliber was airing for years and I was not watching it.

I now have seasons 1-4 on DVD.
