Syfy (ended 2010)
|I really don't think the whole deal with Earth is complicated... It's just what it seems. Humanity destroyed itself in a nuclear war, not Cylones. This is the not-so-far-away future, and not a distant past or a distant future, with the 13th tribe colonizing other planets. |
If you ask me, this has the most impact. For 3 and a half seasons we have been dreaming about Earth and the peace that the 12 tribes will find... And no there's no hope.
|A good clue is that small structure in the foreground that looks like it could be a ruined temple. Helo and Athena are standing in front of it after having walked past the other people. Then Kara turns around after we see the look of exhaustion and utter disappointment on her face. She walks toward the structure. It has stone walls that feature rounded arches and thick columns. And then there's that collapsed roof with the 5 or six thick beams and a dome-shaped cap on the top where all the beams meet. Does anyone recognize that building?|
And there is a contradiction in your statement when you said that you attest to it not being a recognisable version of Athens, but you also claim that the cities would be unrecognisable in a future centuries from now.
No contradiction at all. I am saying it is not any version of Athens that has existed up to now. I am not excluding the possibility it is some future version.
I was wondering about the book that Lee was looking at in the beginning of the episode. It could easily be that it is the "Temple of Aurora". I was thinking that it is quite possible that this is not exactly Earth as we know it. In the same way that there are little differences in the 12 Colonies (paper without corners, Morpha instead of Morphine, frak, etc.) it makes some sort of sense that maybe this isn't exactly our Earth.
And in response to 123Home123, I'm think that it maybe shouldn't have necessarily been an American landmark. I mean, I do understand, this IS an American show, but they have lots of viewers in Canada and the UK as well. On the other hand, the fact that there is so much debate about what city this is, might mean that it was not supposed to be an immediately recognized place. Because if it IS New York, I think that the Statue of Liberty would have been there, since everyone would then be able to recognize it.
A couple shots from the last 10 min would make great desktop wallpapers, the fleet in orbit around earth, all the main characters standing around on earth.
What I want to know is, where the heck did they get those new landing craft? When their going down to earth, you can see a bunch of new ships, they arent Raptors, they aren't Vipers, but its definitely a colonial design. Where did these ship come from and why havent we seen them before now?
Questions I still have:
Ok, now what?
What's up with Baltar? Ie, the Six in his head, the Baltar in his head, why is he Jesus?
What about the other Cylons? The Cavils and whatnot?
Is Rosalin ever actually going to kick the bucket? She's been circling the drain for a long time.
Who is number 5?
Why is earth so toasty?
There's still a lot of stuff for that last half season.
I like the idea that maybe the 13th tribe came to Earth, and changed it, but eventually they destroyed themselves. Because I'm really starting to think that it is not exactly our Earth. That just seems much too straightforward for BSG.
Well then 11 is probably going to be even more intense. Although it will be interesting to see what they felt they HAD to reveal if the series was forced to an abrupt ending.
It being Vancouver, while pretty unlikely, would still be pretty amazing. Maybe the thirteenth tribe liked the Canadians better? But I agree that it is probably not supposed to be any specific city. Otherwise they probably would have shown a very recognizable landmark.
Okay I liked th episode as a whole but the ending for me was a drag, thats what happens when they build speculation about the final cylon and then dont show them. It was a letdown, but Im sure that when I watch the episode again I will love it.
Did anyone notice that D,Anna said the the fifth was not with the fleet, it could only mean that they were on the baseship already, and I think its Baltar for the simple fact that every time D,'Anna sees him her eyes light up. Oh and was the six on earth Caprica Six, and what will Baltar do when he finds out that she is pregnant with Sauls baby, Well at least my fall shows will tide me over until it returns.
|I don't think the final Cylon is already dead. Then why would it matter whether they found him/her or not? At the same time, since they have already found Earth, what is the significance of the final Cylon? Why do they need to identify and find him or her? Will that individual lead them somewhere else or reveal the nature of God/the gods? There's still quite a bit to learn in the final 10 (12?) episodes next year.|
