First, let me geek out a minute over this show. I love the show this season. Obviously the writers are throwing revelations at us fast and furiously because the show is supposed to end this season. (Though now they're breaking mid-season, ending in '09 and talking about doing some BSG movies after the show is over. Clearly this series isn't going to die a premature death like "Firefly").
The show has kept me riveted this season and I need to be a nerd-girl for a minute because I don't have a single person who isn't a visitor to my blog to geek out with. I haven't been able to get my husband to watch the show with me and somehow we're still married. But what that means after every show is that I am left without anyone to say OMG! Can you believe what they did? ((Though the ending of Friday's show was slightly predictable. I was wondering if they were going to do a "Planet of the Apes" kind of thing and it sure looks like they did.... ))
Anyway.... Long story short. I want to share with you what I have learned from watching the new BSG. And please, feel free to share with me any bits of wisdom you have gained from the show.
Even in deep space, if you're a Cylon, you will have a stunning wardrobe.
Maybe it's because the cylons knew they were going to destroy the planet that they packed all those great clothes.
It doesn't matter if you're batshit crazy as long as you can fly a viper.
I have a love/hate relationship with Starbuck. I like her when she's "defying authority" but I don't like her when she's cruel for no apparent reason. I wonder if she's bi-polar?
Nepotism does work; especially if your name is Lee Adama.
Don't get me wrong. I love Lee Adama. I especially love looking at him. But they've been in space, what? Two years? Three years? And he's already commanded a Battlestar and been president? Yeah, the old man pulled a few strings....
New Age prophets are the rock stars of the future.
Baltar has managed to recreate himself into a new age messiah and I must say it's working for him. The religious groupies on a Battlestar are much better looking than the ones that followed Charles Manson.
You can't have a sci-fi show on TV without hiring Lucy Lawless to join the cast. ((She's basically the Heather Locklear of sci-fi))
Okay. I know she's not on every sci-fi show. But you have to admit, she shows up a lot.
The technology exists to make Battlestars but the phones are surprisingly primitive.
Maybe they never thought of inventing the "Star Trek" communicators.
Cylon women are hot.
No explanation necessary.
P.S. Any thoughts on the final cylon? D'Anna said the final cylon wasn't with the fleet while Roslin, Baltar and many of the pilots were on the cylon baseship-- does that mean it's Baltar or Roslin? Is there anyone else I'm overlooking?
