I got the Miniseries on DVD today, man that was good. I must have missed all the talk about Boomer being a Cylon, because at the end of the episode I just said "What the Frack"
In Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons, Captain Scarlet was killed and replaced my a Mysteron double, whose orders were to kill some VIP, but "he" got shot and fell over 100 feet and they became good. I don't maybe something like that could happen with Galactica Boomer (I'm not saying that she's a double)
I was a Stargate SG-1 con this weekend, there were two Battlestar guests however, Jamie Bamber (Jamie Bamber I'm told is the 2nd in command and was actually kinda dull (and I hate saying that given he's a brit), and Aaron Douglas being the chief engineer who successfully drank every single one of us under the table). After hearing their talks on the show and the episode that was shown on the saturday evening I have to say that I am REALLY looking forward to seeing the rest of this show.
On an unrelated note Anna-Louise Ploughman (aka Sara/Osiris) is possibly the first woman I've ever met as tall as me! When I had my pic taken with Teryl at the last con they had to zoom out and still cut off some of my head.
Ahhh 5ths talk on sliming up amanda was fun.
I still want to see MORE SPACE COMBAT!! I had been watching the Stargates, thinking they were the lesser shows (though still good) on Sci-Fi Friday compared to BSG. To my surprise, I have to say that these past few weeks I've enjoyed both Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis more than BSG. I had always thought the writing and especially the acting on the Stargates was better, but had looked forward to BSG more because of the WCish traits (fighter pilots battling on a carrier). Unfortunately, it seems IMO more like one of the many "you never know who the aliens (~Cylons) are" movies (i.e. Starship Troopers 2/Second Arrival/First Wave/etc...) meets bad daytime soap opera. This is primarily because surprisingly the Stargates (not generally known for this) have shown much MORE SPACE COMBAT. Also the light hearted lovable personalities from the Stargates and original BSG make the dark bland new BSG personalities appear comparatively dull. For the last episode I tried to get my dad (who watched the original BSG when it came out) to watch the new BSG with me, but he became bored in just the first few minutes. I would've been embarassed to have him see the rest of it anyway since he already had commented "They're not turning this into a sex show are they?". The soft porn aspects are bad enough without the additional unsettling unholy fact that they're robots. I'll continue watching it in the hope that they improve/fix these things (though I'll NO LONGER suggests others watch it until they do).
Was the last episode shown "six degrees of seperation"?
It was actually a really good one if i remember correctly. Another six shows up on battlestar galactica and accuses baltar of treason. cue much stressed eric style crazyness. and a few laughs. with probably the best toilet scene in a sci fi show ever.
I loved the episode this evening for BSG. Though I was kindda confused by the ending. It felt like there was more to say. I didn't understand Starbucks reaction at the end... (placing her hand to the glass) and I didn't understand the President's conversation with Adama. Who knows...they are leaving stuff open!
Gaius' reaction to the cylon detector's report was also curious...I wonder how they are going to explain things...
