Syfy (ended 2010)
YAY!! Can't wait for it to air. I'm really looking forward to
seeing D'Anna get unboxed. I wonder who she will reveal as the Fifth. I'm guessing she might not reveal the Fifth yet. I think she'll tell Anders that he is one of the Five and then he'll start to freak out because D'Anna just blew his cover.
PS. I put spoiler tags around my comments since I posted them before the episode aired. I'm not sure if spoilers are allowed here before the episode, but I wanted to make sure I was polite.
We see a character we haven't see in a while
Every episode Jane Espenson writes is better that the one before it, yet she doesn't quite seem up to par for the show (in my opinion). I have no real complaints from the episode, which is a pretty big step in the right direction based on how alot of this season had seemed to be shaping up. I liked the inbetween jumps scenes, at least in the beginning; it's ultimate resolution to help save Baltars life, which while crutial to the themes of the show, felt a bit forced.
I also found certain character seemed to be a bit...off, and not quite themselves. I didn't hate it, but it was noticable. Overall I think I'm still on the fence with this episode, and it's gonna have to sink in some more before I can decided if I liked it or not.
Oh and was Leoben in this episode at all? I saw his name in the credits, but I don't remeber seeing him. Maybe it'll end up in a deleted scene.
this was a fantastic episode.
I really wasn't a fan of last weeks but it did setup the reunion between Roslin & Adama very nicely.I also liked the fact that this episode wasn't taking itself to seriously even though the grim storyline could have definetely called for it to be.Those moments definetly helped to lighten the atmosphere expecially, Roslin and Baltars 20 questions game they had going with the hybrid and Baltars little talk with the centurian.
But then OMG, I couldn't believe she got the confession out of him that easily expecially after all the past attemps for the truth(torture,airlock threats,ect) all it took this time was a little morphine lol!....... After he said that I was waiting for Roslin to go postal on his a**, and she almost did thank god Elosha was there.
The only thing that bothered me about this episode was the absence of Leoben expecially, when they were briefing all the pilots for the attack his model was mysteriously absent (i guess Rennie couldn't make it).

Rennie is actually credited, so I highly suspect whatever scene(s) he was in got the cutting room floor treatment.
I loved the episode. Roslin's odd visions adding another layer of mystery, and Baltar trying to talk to the Centurion and the Hybrid were hilarious. It's nice to see that akward part of Baltar shine back in the show a little. Obviously the highlight was the moment between he and Roslin. It was rivititing to see her so full of concern for Baltar, especially given his confession. The pivitol thing about that scene it that both are washing away so much of the dirt in their souls: Baltar has lost so much selfishness for his own concern while Roslin, even in the face of this, the thing she held against Baltar and the reason for her distrust and suspicion, seems to have reached a level of forgiveness.
The space battle wasn't bad, either. And it was nice to know that SciFi hadn't given up a major plot point of revealing Roslin as a Cylon. It scared the unholy Hell out of me when I saw that advert the week before because I thought that after the huge flaming flare of a spoiler they sent out for the previews of "The Ties That Bind" I really didn't put it past them to reveal the last Cylon. They should still be more careful, though.
By the way, anyone else think of Jesus's side being pierced during his crucifixion when seeing Gaius bleeding out his side?
|Talk about funny Roslin: Okay open the door Hybrid: Jump! Roslin: Ju- Ugh! I loved it but next week will the best of all and I know for a fact everyone will love it|
I'd say that when the centurion tilted it's head it was a sign of listening, just like, well, dogs. Baltars tale about the dog wasn't all that wrong in context or meaning.
And I'm not gonna be surprised to see that cavil managed to resurrect somewhere before the hub blew up, remember that there are more places than the hub and the resurrection ships that have pods, and theres probably a lot of cavils left.
I really thought that this week's episode "the hub" was possibly the best episode of the season. It wasn't boring at all, had a space battle scene, and most of all: it had a lot of captivating drama and suspense.
I enjoyed seeing that character return (I still can't remember her name). It was a good concept of her representing Roslins concious. But what didn't really make sense, is why these "visions" only took place when the base star kept jumping. Anyway, we'll have to find out in a later episode.
The cylons and humans team up to extract D'ianna from the hub, and destroy the hub. She knows the identities of the final five, and they know the way back to earth. They successfully do so, both extract her and destroy the hub. This was a very suspenseful couple of moments for me, one of my favorite scenes from the episode.
Baltar talks about a dog, to a centurion. The responses that the centurion gives are quite bizarre and they resemble ones that a dog would give if it was concentrated or confused about a topic.
Roslin had the choice to either kill Baltar or stop the bleeding. When she found out that it was his fault for the fall of Caprica, she decided he didn't deserve to live any longer. But she finally came to reason, and decided to allow him to live. I believe that she will not keep this information to herself and Roslin may convict Baltar of crimes towards humanity (here we go again).
Anyway, spectacular episode. I can't wait to see next weeks episode, and I dread the fact that a six month or more break is upon us. I hope the show keeps going in the direction it's going in right now.
