Flesh and Bone - Battlestar Galactica

This was the last episode on the second disc of the first Season of Battlestar Galactica, or episode 8.
Interesting episode that raises a lot of questions about the Cylons. With Leoben Conoy being captured, we hoped we could find out some information about the future plans of the Cylons. However, instead of us finding out more information, the Cylon manages to mess up everybody's minds.
I thought his very last sentence to Laura was very impactful: "Adama is a Cylon". Now that is a very smart thing to say in order to create chaos among humans!
Divide and Conquer!

Cylons and Sex

So when I was watching "Six Degrees of Separation", something occured to me:

In the episode, Helo and Sharon have sex, and as we know, Cylons' back "light up" when they have sex. Of course Helo at this point doesn't see her back, but it got me thinking. Wouldn't the Chief, at some point in time, have noticed Sharon's back when they were having sex? There are positions where it would be possible for him to see it (ex: doggy style).
But let's say that, for some reason, they never had sex in any position that would allow him to see her back, my next thought would be: what about Gaius?
Now, I will not believe that he did not have sex in many different positions with number Six. There has to be at least one time where he would have been in a position to see her back "light up". Not to mention that they did stay together for a while (in order for Number Six to get close to Gaius).

So I guess my question is: How is it that none of them realized that those women were Cylons?

Six Degrees of Separation - Battlestar Galactica

Finally saw the next episode of Battlestar Galactica (Season one, episode 7). Good old Gaius being accused of betraying humans, no way!
But it's a very interesting episode if you think about it.It proves how smart Cylons are. They managed to put Dr. Gaius Baltar in a position of power. In addition, no one will ever dare to suspect him of doing anything to help Cylons. It's a great plan! No wonder the Cylons won the war agains the humans.

Did I mention that I really like Dr. Gaius Baltar? Well, let me repeat it. He is such an interesting character, only out for himself. He doesn't care about anyone but himself and is great at manipulating people to help him. If you think about it, he represents most people living on this Earth.

So I guess if they did find Earth, he would fit right in with the population! ;-)

Battlestar Galactica Break

Unfortuneately today won't have much new reports on Battlestar Galactica as I am away from my beautiful Battlestar Galactica DVDs and haven't been able to watch a new episode.
But do not fear, I will get back on it hopefully by tonight and will be able to bring you more exciting news.
Until later, have a very nice day!

Laura Roslin - the President, a Woman

One of the greatest thing about Battlestar Galactica is that the President is a woman. But she is not any woman, she is a very smart, well-spoken, classy woman. I think it relly shows that a woman in power can do amazing things and be as efficient as a man.
In Battlestar Galactica, Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell)becomes the President after the 45 people in line for the succession before her die in the Cylon attack. Let's not forget to mention that she got the biggest promotion ever: from Education Minister to President!
And she handles it very well, her first instinct is to find all the survivors of the attack.
None of this would have been possible if it wasn't for the wonderful acting work deon by Mary McDonnell. She really brings the character of Laura Roslin in Battlestar Galactica alive.
To conclude, there wouldn't any better portrayal of a woman President than the one of Laura Roslin on Battlestar Galactica.

Battlestar Galactica filling Firefly hole

Ever since Serenity (the movie) came out I have been watching all the episodes of the short-lived series "Firefly". When I saw it, I was compelled to buy the first and only Season on DVD.
I am now wondering whether Battlestar Galactica is not filling the whole that I felt when I finished watching the last Firefly episode...
Although very different in tone, Battlestar Galactica goes in the same direction as Firefly. Which is why I think I was appealed towards Battlestar Galactica in the first place.
What are your thoughts on this? Are you also fans of Firefly? Do you usually like shows like Battlestar Galactica (for ex: Stargate).

For those of you who haven't seen Firefly, you need to, it's an awesome show!

Litmus - Battlestar Galactica

Ok, so I am currently watching the episode "Litmus" (still have about 15 minutes left). It's the 6th episode of the 1st season of Battlestar Galactica (not counting the Miniseries) and I am really enjoying it.
I think it's really funny that the Chief Petty Officer Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) is being suspected of being a Cylon (especially since we know Boomer is the one). Don't know how this one's going to end.

I have to say that I also really enjoy Helo and the other Boomer's story on Caprica. He likes her so much... if he only knew!

Battlestar Galactica on iTunes

Did you guys know that you can get episodes or full seasons of Battlestar Galactica on iTunes?
I think this is amazing, 10 years ago we were dreaming about things like that.
Today, we can download those episodes from any computer and put it on an ipod and watch it wherever and whenever we want.
I think technology is wonderful!

Starbuck Video

Video of Starbuck for you guys:

Original "Battlestar Galactica" opening

For you viewing pleasure: the original "Battlestar Galactica" opening! lol

Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama

Time to talk about another character on Battlestar Galactica. None other than Apollo (Jamie Bamber). Yes, the son of Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos), and brother to Zak Adama (Tobias Mehler), Starbuck's deceased boyfriend.
Well, what can we say about him, he is a good man, that is why he cannot be with Starbuck even though he wants to. Does anybody agree with that? He does love her, but won't do anything about it because it would feel like betraying his brother.
I think he is troubled by the fact that his brother was the favorite.
Which is why he does all the right things and saves everyone (ex: Season 1 when they were going to be attacked by the Cylons and he fooled them into thinking they had killed the ship when they didn't reallly. That was at the very beginning.)

I am sure he is many people's favorite character but I have to say that of the men on Battlestar Galactica, he is not my favorite (but that will be for later).

Any thoughts on Apollo?

Starbuck a man?!

Ok so I just learned that in the original Battlestar Galactica, the character of Starbuck was actually a man!
I have to say that since I really like the new Starbuck in the 2004 Battlestar Galactica, I think they made the right decision.
The old Starbuck was played by Dirk Benedict in the original Battlestar Galactica.
I haven't seen his performance, but something tells me that I would like the new Starbuck better.
How about you? What do you think? New Starbuck or Old Starbuck?

Lt Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace

As you can guess, Starbuck is probably one of my favorite character on the show. AT first I have to say I did not like her at all, but that was when I wasn't really watching the show and catching glimpses of it.
Now, after starting to watch season 1, I have to say that she grew on me. She's really tough and it is someone that a lot of people can look up to.
Of course I haven't seen all of the seasons (still have season 2 to go =0) ) but I am getting there and of course will share it with you guys.

What do you guys think? Do you like Starbuck as much as I do?
