Re: BSG S1: Flesh and Bone

The increasing tension and play between Kara and Leoben is great, especially when you notice how each of them are slowly gaining on the other in their own arguments, but ultimately Leoben has the strongest effect on Kara. This episode shows how strong the writers on BSG are, regular shows would just give all of this Cyclon information through expository dialogue, but they carefully crafted it into a debate between two characters. The bookends of the episode between Roslin's dream and the actual airlocking was a great touch that not only clued Laura in on the possibility that a higher force is at play, but that Leoben's threat that Adama is a Cyclon could hold some weight. Excellent television.

Re: BSG S1: Six Degrees of Separation

No more Mr. Nice Gauis is one of my favorite lines of the series! So great, considering it was improvised.

Re: BSG S4: Sine Qua Non

"Given that we know Romo's extremely adept at psychological manipulation, I was under the assumption that the gun-pointing and the story of Romo's family were just an elaborate trick to force the reluctant Lee into realising his own leadership skills.

That's how I interpreted it anyway."

I agree completely. The cat was alive right before he left the room. It's much more in character for Romo to use that gun toting test to make sure Lee would run the "gang" well. I'm only up to this episode so I don't know how everything turns out or if we even see Romo again, but I never, for one second, doubted that Romo wasn't using his emotional manipulation.

Re: BSG S2: Lay Down Your Burdens, Part 2

I started watching BSG this September for the first time and have been following along with all of your reviews - they're great! This was an amazing episode, probably one of my favorites. The one year jump really took me by surprise as well, but I think I like it - I'm intrigued at the possibilities of where the series will head now.
