The beginning of the end of Battlestar Galactica. Angela and I are watching:
- Well, Earth sure a drag.
- Hey! Hera uses the same plastic spoons as Ainsley.
- That beach where Tyrol is having some flashback to old Earth… is that actually the beach at Stanley Park in Vancouver?
- Well, Starbuck. I guess you’re the twelfth and final cylon. At least that sure seems to be only way this makes sense.
- I’m so glad they’re using the creepy lost-five Cylon tune again.
- So is there some Cylon resurrection ship/facility near Earth that Starbuck accidentally discovered?
- Dee is going to go psyco, isn’t she? I mean she’s about to go third season Starbuck crazy, right? Tragically, yes.
- Looks like pretty much everyone is going nuts. As if it were the end of the world or some… oh. Right.
- I’m glad the show didn’t over use the population countdown element. They really used it sparingly, and to maximum effect.
- Wait, Ellen, whoa!
- Angela: “So it’s not Kara! What is she?”
- Where’s Ellen? If there was a resurrection ship near New Caprica, would it have brought Ellen back? If not, wouldn’t she be gone forever?
- So, is “the harbinger of death” something different all togehter?
We may do this again next week. If so, I’ll probably just update this post.
Update: There is a terrific interview with Ronald D. Moore, BSG’s executive producer, that I found via Adam Savage. Here’s a quote from Moore during that interview:
My attitude was pretty much, â€œLook, weâ€™re in the last chapter here. Anyone whoâ€™s come this far and doesnâ€™t want to watch the rest — theyâ€™re a minority at best.â€ People are going to want to see how this turns out. And yeah, this is a very dark chapter. This may not even be the darkest chapter.
