Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x16: "Deadlock"

^I can only say...I pretty much agree with everything you said. It gave us a lot of info on the Cylons as people without being on-the-nose. I think that approach actually works much better for this show than other approaches. *coughNoExitcoughcough*

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x16: "Deadlock"

Well as much as I love this series 'Deadlock' didn't do much for me, and here I was so upset with myself for missing it last Friday

After watching it a few times...meh. I was disappointed in how quickly Ellen degenerated to her old scheming self…she was so confident and self assured on Cavils ship.

Neat how Laura observed the Cylon morning the loss of another and understood that it was a significant event.

How can everyone forgot Anders warning NOT to leave the ship in order to stop events from continually repeating? Something big will happen on the Galitica if Sol stays.

As far as giving the Baltar crew heavy weapons goes…probably not the smartest move but he has been operating from a more moral foundation lately…and it would seem Adama is losing control of his own men

I wondered about the Mutineers’when I saw Starbuk at the bar alone but got the heads up in the podcast thread.

Deadlock’ was OK, a show we needed we see, imo it just wasn’t compelling like we’ve grown use to this season

They didn't forget. Ellen and Tory didn't seem to care. Tyrol had his own personal agenda, but made sure everyone remembered Anders' warning. Saul is the only one who really listened, I think.

^well OK that's true and that's what I was getting to...some are ready to cut and run.

According to Anders everyone's salvation lays with staying on the Galactica. So why are they so quick to discount that?

Things are improving for the Cylons in the fleet and once the BSG is repaired they are stronger together against Cavil.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x16: "Deadlock"

I voted Below Average. The storyline is absolutely incomprehensible. I don't know where this series is going but I stopped caring a long time ago. Yes, I'm watching it until the end because I've invested all these years and want to see how it ends but I have no emotional ties to any of the characters anymore.

Too bad. BSG started with a bang and is going out in a fizzle.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x16: "Deadlock"

Decided to go with "Average" for this one. It's a shame, really, because a lot of it is better than average, I think.
But what really pulls it down for me is the way Ellen goes on when she returns to Galactica. I understand that there would still be some of the old Ellen in there, and I can imagine that returning to the man you loved in two lives but who also killed you and who is/was expecting a child with one of your "children" must be quite confusing.
At the same time, I really have the impression that the "new" Ellen we'd been introduced to in "No Exit" would have gotten over it quicker, handled it with more grace and dignity. I think she simply slips too far here.
