Syfy (ended 2010)
Complex Episode Great but very Complex what I took away from this episodes is that the terms Good Guys or Bad Guys truly has no meaning everything is grey and that just makes things that much more interesting. Baltar oh Baltar what are they going to do with you.
looks like the Cylons are going to go after um again with no problems, the resurection ship is back again or there was more than one all along and they just had to get it there
Zarrak it seems was president for a few days and well he set things in motion in an interesting manner
Well Jammer is gone and i kinda feel sorry for him.
Well it seems that Starbuck and Anders have issues too which is really going to make things interesting over the next few episodes. It also seems that we where all wrong about Col. Tigh hes right back in his old job but he has issues which we all agreed would happen.
The truth and reconcillation committe bit at the end is straight out of South Africa and some of the other African countries, that have set up such commissions in the wake of Apratide in the case of South Africa and civilwars in many of the others.
And the preview for next week is makes it look like things are just going to get more interesting espically since #3 says something about the Cylons wanting to make Earth their new home.
|Wow. I was wondering where the story would go after the New Caprica sequence. I'd have to say that this episode is one of the best of the entire series. Similar to "Downloaded," it was a very quiet story but a powerful and dramatic one. Seeing the characters that we've known for so long facing imminent death at the hands of fellow humans had a lot of emotional impact, both Jammer's scene and Gaeta's scene. |
I like how the entire plan was thought up by Zarek. That makes complete sense for his character. He is an expert in the matters of martyrdom, casting himself as a martyr for years in the time before the initial Cylon attack on the Colonies. I also liked how Roslin and Adama responded, especially Roslin's general pardon at the end. I guess Roslin and Adama were right to force Zarek out of office. He probably would have become as bad as Baltar was on New Caprica. Zarek is only good at fighting. He isn't really good at leading a peacetime government as he showed.
This is the first time this season that I've really been interested in Kara's story. I never felt her desperation before, but in this episode I did. Her scene with Anders at the meeting of the Circle was downright chilling. She seems to have surpassed even Tigh in the depths to which she has sunk.
Again, an outstanding episode, not just for the show but for television in general. A true dramatic classic.
|Good episode i'm glad somebody made Gaeta speak up all the while I was like if this idiot isn't going to tell his story then killem he's too dumb to live. Anyway ....|
First of all Gaeta did speak up for himself. He had told Starbuck earlier in Chowhall what he had done. She didn't care enough to listen. Remember, she wasn't on the Jury when he told her either. When she was brought into the Jury and told of the "Evidence" against him she said nothing, except guilty. After they abducted Gaeta and read to him the charges and their conclusions he said that he had already spoken about his innocence (To Starbuck), and he would not beg for forgiveness.
Starbuck just wanted to kill somebody. She didn't care who it was. Then to add insult to injury she wanted to make a game of it by making him beg. Screw her.
This is the reason we have an open system and why you need to have oversight and separation of powers.
|Very good episode, when they abducted Gaeta the guy who did helped them with everything they did. Guess it won't take long for the entire fleet to find out and all say sorry to him. I thought Gaeta would of cried and begged but NO he didn't beg.|
|There's an acute psychological insight in Kara lashing out, wanting to hurt someone or anyone, not because she was particularly mistreated but because she was duped. Her own emotions betrayed her, as Leoben "gave" her a child and then her own people took it away. She feels worse about her own responses as about anything that happened to her during her house arrest, and needs to direct that self-loathing at other hapless humans. Saul Tigh feels even guiltier, and no wonder. He has just (apparently) murdered his wife, and quite unnecessarily. In the confusion of the attack that he knew was coming, he could have left her alive on New Caprica. He could have chanced human justice, taken her back to the fleet and insisted on a trial. In the end, he loved his status more than his wife. That guilty knowledge has only increased his penchant for making decisions that are wrong morally, politically, strategically or all three. The one downside of this otherwise well-written epidose is that by now, Col. Tigh practically has "Moron" tattooed on his forehead. He's dangerously unstable, which may make for some big scenes down the road but is less interesting than a drunk, marginally competent man struggling to adjust. |
On the other hand, Helo, Tyrol and Roslin all showed their deeper dimensions as characters, with the all-too-rare ability to ultimately reject the bloody cycle of revenege, at least against their own people. It will be interesting to see whether that comes into play in future encounters with the Cylons. And it should be _ but here surprisingly isn't _ needless to say that killing someone else is the opposite of being a martyr. No even halfway astute politician sets out to create martyrs of his opponents.
|It also shows that despite his courage in standing up to Baltar and the Cylons, Zarek's fundamental nature hasn't changed. Even before the initial Cylon attack he engaged in harsh and brutal acts against fellow humans. He's a guerilla warrior, not a politician and civilian leader. |
I wonder if Roslin will follow through on her promise to name Zarek the new vice president.
The following things have been bugging me
So what exactly is ander's role in the fleet now?
And wouldn't somebody wounder why several non military personal where on board galactica permanently, cause i don't think all of the members of the circle where members of the military.
|Yes, I'm sort of hoping that Gaeta's acts of heroism during the resistance would become public and get him some recognition.|
|You know that there is going to be some tension with gaeta rejoining the millitary|
