No, blasted I missed them. I didn't hear about them until this week. I hope they'll be put out on the DVD for Season 3 when that is released.

Any insight on them for us?  biggrin

I tried watching them from here....but the damn thing says "link not available from your location"...what the hell is that? I thought those webisodes were available everywhere...damn.

And looks like the DVD will be out before season 3 is shown on TV...in fact we are just getting season 2 on Channel ten.

I watched the first seven . . . interesting shorts - about 3 minutes each, and they do add a lot. Although one won't be lost when Season 3 kicks off I'm sure I can see these webisodes as a definite help in putting pieces together.

So, who saw the Season three Premier tonight/last night?

Opinions?

I think Col Tigh has more balls than I originally thought.

His wife is still a skanky slut - should be killed off . . . she's a traitor too, all the more reason for her demise.

Interesting jail cell they have Starbuck in . . .

Commander Adama gained a little weight . . .

Insurgency? Homicide Bombers? Interesting parallel with today's world.

Summary Executions of Detainees. Fortunately no parallel with today's world, but look back about 50-60 years.

What shall be next?

Curious now. Roslyn was in that group of detainees that was supposedly executed. But she is appearing in next weeks episode? Cylon?

Let's hear it . . .

I hated this show. Im sorry
I thought it was a cheep take off of the original. I apologise
I was comparing the original Charlies Angels show to the movies and thinking the same of this show. Someone hang me.

I now vote that this be one of the best Sci Fi flicks around. A bit deeper than Star Trek, SG1, and Atlantis combined.

Too bad I know longer have a DVR so I probably wont see a single show this season.  Sad

Marginally . . .

At least I know how the insurgency was started; the reason the first guy blew himself up (the fact that during the webcasts his girlfriend/wife was killed by Cylons); etc. It put some pieces into place.

I thoroughly enjoyed the last 2 seasons and I look forward when I get back home to the states in a few weeks to catch the remainder of season 3 (hopefully SciFi will replay the episodes that I will miss).

Save for the space sequences, the Cylon Centurions, ect... one might be forgiven for mistaking BSG as a drama rather than a Science Fiction program, and that is the beauty of the show. I know people that are not at all Sci-Fi fans who tune into this show and those like myself who hated the original 70s series but were quick converts after the pilot episode, that says a lot about the quality of the show. The producers, writers and actors of BSG have certainly created a whole new genre of Sci-Fi, imo.

I am still am impressed with how the producers of BSG, avoided many of the space/sci-fi cliches. i.e. the standard laser battle sequences, the funky outfits/clothing, ect...I mean how many Sci-Fi shows/movies (not set on or involving Earth) do you see the use of Hummers and Troop transport trucks? The civilian population dressed in business suits or dresses? The use of military terminology (especially terminology used aboard Aircraft Carriers)? And the pilot episode where Roslin is taking the oath of office on 'Colonial 1' a-la Johnson taking the oath of office aboard Air Force 1, or the attempted assignation of 'Boomer' again very similar to Dallas '63'. These guys are thinking waaaay out of the Sci-Fi box and I say bravo to Moore and company for creating this masterpiece. BTW, did I see Glen Larson's name on the production credits a year or so back? Considering he was one of the creators of the original series, I was a little surprised.

Is it me or is this is one of the most intense TV programs that has ever aired? The only other show that I get the same feel for is FX's 'Rescue Me' (another one of my favs).

I definitely had my doubts about the re-born BSG . . . I watched the old campy 70s/80s version and have a tendency to discredit anything "remake" coming out of Hollyweed/elsewhere.

As you say, I was instantly sold on this new series when the Pilot aired.

Precisely.

Quoting Thomasphoto60 (Reply 17):

Yes. I'm not sure if he was associate producer attempting to maintain continuity with the original or what. Maintaining continuity with the original seems a fruitless effort with the new BSG as just about the only thing that has remained the same is the names of people and ships and planets. Everything else - literally - is new, save basic Battlestar and Viper design.

Also, of note, Richard Hatch swore he'd never have anything to do with the new BSG . . . and he's rather a regular cast member.

I was a little disappointed with how they played this. Once I realized (during Adama's dressing down) what they were doing, I thought what a cool sub-plot and was really looking forward to how they developed it. But instead he just seems to have done a, "golly gee Dad, guess you're right", and toughened up. By the end of the episode he was already dropping weight.

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 12):

No, my guess is either under someone (the VP shields her with his body?) or something to do with the pathogen from when she was cured.

What do you think of Starbuck's 'baby'? Really hers? Did she really go all mommy on us, or is she up to something? My guess is the kid is a plant, and she's playing along.

No, pretty sure the detainees were taken to the same location as the dropoff point being used for the insurgents rendezvous, and thus the firing we heard was an attack on the Cylons by those insurgents.

Someone in the Cylon command wanted to let them live, that was the best way to ensure that AND cover their own asses as well.

Do you think the Cylons actually pushed the little girl down the stairs, or did they give her a shot to induce a coma and pour some blood on the floor? There's no way that was an accident.

I took Roslyn off of my list of possible Cylons a long time ago. The clincher was when the baby Cylon blood cured her cancer.

Baltar, on the other hand is right up at the top of my list. The previews look like Adama may have nuked the place and Baltar is finally starting to realise that he has managed to live through yet ground zero.

Oh, I could easily see this being an accident. I have a kid . . . very possible indeed. But I like your idea.

Gotta wonder though . . . why would the Cylons roll this kid down the stairs after they've been busting their asses trying to breed? Why take the chance on killing this kid? Of course, we have no proof that this is a Starbuck/Cylon rugrat, only some Cylon's word that it is so . . .

That's a pretty good angle! Hadn't thought of that!
My thought was that the release of Cally Tyrol wasn't just a "renegade cop" but it was planned. They didn't intend to execute the insurgents in the first place but they released Cally so she could hear the gunfire and run back and tell the colony "they just shot the insurgents". Just a mind fark so to speak.

I agree about Kara. She's one of the most militant Cylon-haters of all. Can't see her getting all mushy over a "toaster". Also, she is MUCH prettier with long hair, she should keep it. Katee Sackhoff seems really feminine off camera.

BTW, did Jamie Bamber really gain weight for this years role as Apollo or was it prostheses?

He may have put on a little, but I'm guessing most was prostheses. Like I said, by the end of the episode, his face had already lost that bloated, 'neck bulging over the collar' look.

I don't know, I'm still thinking that most of the insurgents will be found dead at the start of the next episode. Remember, the toasters marched up in a firing line and unholstered their weapons. Also, the area where the insurgents were was an open river bed, while the rendevouz with Boomer was in a wooded area. Probably close in proximity, but not the same places.

Disagree . . . the cop was a former Galactica Viper Jock . . . who didn't want to arrest her in the first place. Remember, you saw him - after the arrest - without his mask standing in front of Tyrol's tent holding whatever baby trinket and talking with the Chief . . . he's the one that cut her loose . . . so, although he may not be a militant cop, he has strong ties to the Chief, Cally and the whole flight deck crew.

I'm thinking the toasters will get there's and then some though. Episodes 3 and 4 this year are titled "Exodus Pt.1" and "Exodus Pt. 2".  Wink

Nope, season 2.5 . . .

Interesting to see that Adama now trusts Sharon enough to let her lead the team to meet Tigh on New Caprica...and also reinstating her as a lieutenant.

It's a means to an end I think . . . I don't know that he trusts her so much as he doesn't have a lot of choice - the Chrome Toasters won't recognize her as anything other than a Sharon model . . .

She's just a tool . . .

Ahh..ok..hehe you had me worried there that season 3 was already out on DVD.

Yeah.

But what about the so-called heroes of the cylons...the six and eight? Wonder what they think of all this resistance by the humans..

I see a Cylon civil war after the colony is sprung from New Caprica. I also wonder if Pegasus won't be lost in the process.

Well, the original Hero of the Cylons Number Six is no longer - she was capped in the forehead in the season premier. There will be a replacement of course. And Hero of the Cylons Sharon made her feelings known, at least partially, when she said killing anyone was not the answer.

I believe they will still fight - and I'd not be surprised to see them actually become part of the resistance in the future . . .

One question though....how will the humans identify Sharon Agathon should she ever leave their sight? How, for example, can she ever be safely returned to Galactica?

Also...as indicated by Adama earlier in the episode, Centurions are incapable of distinguishing each individual Cylon copy of a model (in this case, Number Eight), as they have limited sentience.
If the Centurions are incapable of distinguishing between individual copies of a model, why would they fire on Sharon Agathon, who should be just another Eight to them?

Good question, I have no answer . . . presumably, since all Cylons aren't wired together, only THAT Sharon will have knowledge of her conversations with Admiral Adama over the last 3-4 months after they left New Caprica. Perhaps that's the answer? Don't know.

I think they just fired on the crowd. . . if you recall, Sharon Agathon had her back turned when the shooting started . . .

That was my thought as well - there will be schizm in the Cylon ranks, with 6 & 8 leading an outlawed group. It be a great plot device, they could occasionaly make common cause w/ the humans, but they'd never really be trusted by either side.

Do you mean why did they shoot at her at the rendevouz? Probably hadn't identified her yet

Another interesting bit here...after the cylons force Baltar to sign the execution order....

Baltar: "Oh, God."
Cavil: "She'll be back..."
Cavil: "... but if he pulls that trigger now, you won't."

Does this mean that Baltar is a Cylon...and that once he is dead..he will not be "downloaded"? Or is Baltar just a human after all? I strongly think that Baltar is a cylon....how did he survive the initial nuke attack (in the miniseries) otherwise?

Yeah..but could it also be because she was wearing a colonial flight suit?

Naaah, the Chrome Domes probably can't "See" a flight suit. The probably "See" an IFF transmission or some such . . . they're simply not that smart.

A few more thoughts on this . . .

First, Admiral Adama was one of several that conspired to "fake" the death of this Sharon's baby. Now, she's heading back to New Caprica where D'Anna knows (or according to previews will know) that Sharon's baby is alive.

Don't you think Admiral Adama has that thought buried in his mind somewhere - "Gee, what kind of help will she be if/when she find out her baby is NOT dead and that I help plot it's phony demise?"

That won't be pretty.

Further, after all that anger she displayed, and her speech in Adama's quarters I still don't buy it. Once a toaster, always a toaster - there's a plan.  scratchchin

Baltar could still be a "fully functional" Cylon - as long as he himself isn't aware of his potential resurrection, he'd still be suitably impressed by a death threat and he wouldn't throw his "human act"...

Still, it would be a bit too easy on some level if he was...!  mischievous 

By the way: I'd also vote for the detainees' survival... it's pretty clear they won't depose Roslyn (the writers, I mean, not the cylons or their henchmen... ) and it was a bit too conveniently offscreen to not doubt the appearances...

Whether he's human or cylon, where do people see his character going from here? After signing that execution order, he'll at best be seen as a patsy and at worst a traitor (as many already consider him). I can't see him having too many options left in the fleet.

I agree that Roslyn will survive, but I'm still betting most others get killed. See you on Saturday to see who was right!  Wink
