Re: DSC S3: That Hope Is You, Part 2

I predict that by the end of this show (however many seasons it inflicts on us) it will be Admiral Burnham, either that or she'll be made President of the Federation. Not that I'll be watching it, I can't even face watching this episode and am leaving the DISCO early. My engines cannae take nah more.

Re: DSC S3: There Is a Tide...

Much, much better than last week.

Count me on the side of those thinking Stamets' outburst made sense, it was completely in keeping with his personality and his experiences over the past 3 seasons. I was wondering if he said he was a parent to try and ingratiate himself with Osyra's scientist (although at the same time he does regard himself as having a parental role with Adira, or wants one), he made clear he was into Andorian opera as well. That scientist I found to be a weak link in the narrative. Are we really supposed to believe he's never seen Osyra behave as she does on the bridge before and is completely unaware of the past excesses in her behaviour? I don't buy it. Now he's all squeamish and worried about it (and he will no doubt have a part in the recapture of the ship in the next episode).

Disappointed they killed off Ryn. He could've been an alien member of the crew, a crew in which other species are few and far between.

Osyra was up to something surely, maybe she'd even got a way of fooling the holograph into stating she was telling the truth. Her characterisation was much better in this episode.

Somebody above wondering why Burnham took her boots off. Did you nod off for a few minutes?! They were pulled off by one of Osyra's regulators when Burnham vented the Jeffries Tube and vented her into space. It was quite a lengthy scene.

I was actually pleased they showed Grudge was secure and she was mentioned again as okay by Book. It used to vex me with Enterprise - what was going on with Porthos while the ship was under attack? He was never mentioned. Was he just left terrified bouncing off the walls and furniture in Archer's room as the ship got hit? Presumably.

Re: ENT S1: Two Days and Two Nights

If you feel that strongly about the comment in question then I suggest YOU do something.

I feel you have lured me into a trap here Booming and I will not be commenting further on this thread.

Re: BSG S4: Deadlock

Very disappointing episode, I was particularly disappointed in the interesting newly born Ellen of the previous episode reverting back to the very irritating Ellen of earlier seasons.

And what has happened to Leoben? Doesn't he get a vote?

I don't believe Tyrol would've voted to leave, unless he's still got a thing for Boomer.

"I am surprised with the number of people who don’t mind Jett Reno. Don’t you find her to be incredibly one dimensional? "

I find nearly all of the characters one dimensional! I do like Reno, she doesn't take herself seriously, doesn't cry, always has a quip. She's like a breath of fresh air when she turns up.

Re: BSG S4: Revelations

Now I'm really confused (as opposed to quite confused). If the other 12 Tribes are descendants of the 13th Tribe doesn't this mean that all members of the 12 Tribes are descendants of Cylons or am I just totally getting hold of the wrong end of the stick?!

Re: DSC S3: Su'Kal

Drea you sound like that annoying child at school: Please Sir Booming used a naughty word!

If this is "not a conversation for me or other visitors to have with with him further" why have you raised it twice already?! If you feel so strongly about it email Jammer directly and complain.

Context is everything and if you read what Booming wrote it is quite clear (to me at least) that this isn't a term Booming condones or uses but it was written in a list of other words as an example of what some conservatives might use/be up in arms about.

Re: VOY S6: Child's Play

Few-tile is the UK English pronunciation; few-tul is an American one. I read that Stewart's role in ST influenced how the word is pronounced . Data is another one, isn't is dat-ta over there whereas it's day-ta in the UK (or if you're posh dar-ta).

Resistance is few-tul doesn't have the same ring to it.

Unless my memory is deceiving me I remember I was taken aback hearing Picard pronounce vase in an American way. Must've been told to do it as Stewart wouldn't have naturally used that pronunciation.

Re: BSG S4: The Road Less Traveled

What irritates me about this episode is Kara and how awful she is in command. If she'd embraced the role correctly the crew would've done what she wanted despite their doubts. She didn't exactly bother to sell the mission to them. As it was Hero was right to relieve of command as she was coming across as seriously unhinged. Pull yourself together woman, at the very least wash your bloody hair!!!

Leoben is my favourite Cylon. Interesting he knew what Kara's recent mystical experiences were, was the same sort of projection Six and Baltar engage in going on?

Re: BSG S4: The Ties That Bind

Person above complaining about the crying baby. Yes it is irritating but I think it's important for us to see and hear the bawling baby as imagine how Cally must feel cooped up with a bawling infant all day/night long. She's getting very little sleep plus is doped up on whatever anti-depressants Cottle has given her. So she isn't really in her right mind, discovering the truth about Tyrol tipped her over the edge. Very handy for Tory as Cally's going out the airlock will make sense as the actions of a suicidal woman.

Oh and what would hurt Tyrol the most - taking the baby with her. I'm not sure if she was taking the baby with her because he's half Cylon or to punish Tyrol. I know she isn't in her 'right mind' in this episode but I never liked the Cally character.

It's an expression of surprise on on a par with "well I'll go to the foot of the stairs" which I hope to hear Baltar use before the show is over.

Re: BSG S4: Razor

Hi Booming
I think American TV at the point this was aired was much more conservative than UK TV which already had gay characters. One of the first openly gay characters was Colin in Eastenders (very mainstream TV) back in the mid 1980s. He was a nice guy as well, no sociopathic tendencies!

I read somewhere that Battlestar's Gaeta was bisexual although I've seen no sign of it so far!

(I love Enterprise, shock horror it's my favourite Trek.)

Re: BSG S4: Razor

I will watch this after I've watched season 4. But really finally a same sex relationship in the Galactica universe (even if one of them is a sociopath)! I was starting to wonder if gay people actually existed here it's been so relentlessly heterosexual (although does sex with Cylons count as heterosexual....? I mean do machines have a biological gender???)

Re: BSG S3: Crossroads, Part 2

Thank the gods I can watch the next episode straight away!!!

Baltar really rocking the Charles Manson look these days. Eek. And the babes smuggling him off the ship because they believe he's a holy man... Ugh. I don't understand the sympathy for Baltar in many comments I've read on this site. He's intriguing and a brilliant villain to have but he's so awful! (which is partly why he's a brilliant villain). Have commentators fallen for Baltar's spiel?!

I kind of like the idea that the writers didn't know or weren't sure who the Five were going to be. If they had surely they'd have been tempted to drop hints and omens throughout. Maybe they knew Tryol was one as I suspected Chief because of his recurring dream and own doubts (if that sort of thing had been done for all the others we'd have guessed before now).

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

This episode should've focused exclusively on the interrogation. Constantly cutting from it to the mundane, squalid, dreary relationship messes of Lee and Kara broke the dramatic tension. It almost seemed like the writers couldn't cope with the level of tension they were creating with the interrogation and felt a need to switch back and forth.

I'm intrigued by the scene of Balthus whispering into Gaeta's ear. This could've been about Balthus trying to sow seeds of doubt in those watching about Gaeta's role down on New Caprica. Or does he suspect Gaeta - as I now do - of being one of the Five and let him know?

I'm pretty sure Balthus has a Narcissistic Personalty Disorder and there is no dealing with such people - as his interrogators discovered.

Re: BSG S3: Rapture

I prefer to think that this apparent sudden switch in behaviour was a quick witted and smart ploy by Boomer. She banked on Caprica reacting like this to any threat to the child. Anything else doesn't fit in with what we've seen of this particular Cylon model. Boomer thought the best hope for Hera's survival was for her to return to Galactica. There's also a connection between the various versions of that model that made her want Athena/Sharon get her child back.

Re: DSC S3: Su'Kal

Awful.

The only thing I enjoyed about this was the look on Vance's face when Saru told him Tilly would be in charge while he was away on the planet.

Oh and Grudge breaking the fourth wall by looking into the camera for a few seconds. That amused me. Miaow!

Re: BSG S2: Resistance

Cally shooting Sharon seems very out of character to me. It spoilt the episode for me somewhat. Unless Cally herself is a Cylon and the Cylons can't allow Sharon to be interrogated... Hmmmmmm

Why does Adama rate Tigh so highly? That baffles me after his behaviour in this season so far. "Tigh...knows he's made some bad calls" is something of an understatement!
