Sorry guys, I'm having a senior moment here but when was Tyrol sent to the brig?
There's a deleted scene from the episode prior to Daybreak that explains how he got there. (I read that in one of the mainstream recaps, either LA Times or EW.com.) Have to wait for the DVD.
Shit, why do they keep doing this? Just to inflate DVD sales?

^Well, hopefully the rumors are true that instead of deleted scenes, we'll be getting a whole bunch of extended episodes for 4.5...

We definately are getting extended cuts of 4x12, 4x18 and 4x20. No word on the other episodes though.

^ I read that an extended version of 4x16 was originally aired for critics instead of the edited version us lowly tv viewers got. Maybe that will show up on DVD as well.

Personally I am holding out for an extended cut for Blood on the Scales

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x19: "Daybreak, Part I"

Disappointing episode especially considering it's part one of the end. It really needed to have a drop-dead cliffhanger, like accelerating the attack plan, having Galactica jump to the colony and then find she's surrounded by a dozen basestars - blam, to be concluded.

The flashbacks better have some relevance because I am tired of the writers always focusing on the past. I would much rather they carried on moving forwards. Caprica is gone. Get over it. Lets focus on what's left.

I hope the ending is sad, powerful and memorable. Galactica holding off John as the fleet head for thir new home beyond the singularity, and in the dying moments she's torn apart, Adama going down with the ship.

Or words to that effect.

With the hinted, cyclical nature of things in BSG, perhaps the past is very much in the future.

I think the flashbacks are effective because it ties into Baltar's speech to Lee about a new life and building that life, etc. In a way, the ragtag fleet has never really let go of Colonial society, and Lee's new Quorum and government is a start to that.

Moreover, at the end, we see where they began, again. I feel it a nice juxtaposition.

I'm sure they're of relevance, but even if they aren't their past is more interesting than their present.

So Tigh and Tigh-playing-Ellen shags himself in the meeting room.

On second thoughts, lets not see how that plays out...

Why, because they figure there's a good chance that people won't tune in for Part II?

That's the only actual function that cliffhangers perform - to hold on to an existing audience, or to stimulate public curiosity in an attempt to increase the future audience.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x19: "Daybreak, Part I"

^ On that note, the 'Daybreak' episodes were originally pitched as one long episode, so this all really hasn't been meant to be seen in chunks like this. Evidently on DVD it will be put together as one like originally planned, and apparently even that is going to be extended as well. It's like a whole new miniseries.

Exactly. This is simply a situation in which the writers were able to structure the story as a single movie rather than breaking the action into more arbitrary chunks to serve the first-run market.
