Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x15: "No Exit"

Oh, and kudos to the team for tonight's opening "scroll"...very good. A noob could actually see this one and follow along. Good job.


Also, surprised nobody noticed this:

John frakked his mother.
John was made in his grandfather's image.
So, he got off on frakking his mother and the theater of her frakking her own father...while at the same time torturing his own father, Tigh, in his prison on New Caprica.

You know, the only one he hasn't personally toyed with his Tory. I wonder why. She seems awfully happy and willing to go off and join the Cylons.

He might see that as well. Perhaps the Final Five didn't have completely unified front.

Oh Tory and Tyrol? They seem mismatched as a couple.

Woo hoo! Another excellent. This means I've graded everything from The Hub until now an Excellent. It could only happen on BSG, folks!

I'm impressed at how seamlessly Ron and Co. put the mythology together considering how much was made up along the way. I'm calling it now: Daniel is in the fleet. At least one model got away.

Why did the 5 bother with resurrection tech. if they had an interstellar ship in orbit?

They might have had academic reasons to study it, and no doubt everlasting life seemed appealing - the ship was also not FTL capable.

I got the impression that they were specifically studying resurrection tech. to survive the coming apocalypse. Speaking of which, I wonder who warned them.

the ship was also not FTL capable.
Obviously.

Yes. Glad you mentioned that. It was a good opening. I wonder if they'll be winding the show down with openings like this one.

Also, surprised nobody noticed this:

John frakked his mother.

Good catch. Makes the guy even more screwed up.

"EM spectrum" "Prehensile" "Supernova" "Amniotic fluid"

Awwww. Ain't that cute. BSG's trying to pretend that it's sci-fi.

Also:

If Ellen is the mother of the Cylons, then Tigh is the father. They are Adam and Eve. When she first meets Boomer, she offered her an apple. So we have Eve offering one of her children "the apple." She tempts her to betray John, and, in the end, she does. It's stuff like that that makes me love this show.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x15: "No Exit"

Excellent, though I'm going to need to rewatch it to get the details and collect some of the parts I missed. I loved the amount of mythology that they packed into this episode. I would just like to say that while I never actually got on here and posted because my posting had dropped off of late, I was actually thinking there was 13 cylons for a little bit now. The thing that triggered the thoughts in me was the fact that in the Opera house scenes, there were six glowing curtains instead of five.

So, what I got out of tonight was that Cavil is the biggest anti-human skinjob in the group because he hates himself so much. It's an interesting concept. I appreciate how they were finally depicting the way that the Galactica has taken a beating over the past several years. It's high time that the ship started to show some wear-and-tear, and not just the outer hull visuals. I know she had little to do with tonight, but I would just like to take this moment to say that I have absolutely hated Tory ever since the final five revelation. I like how the "head-characters" got a reference as something... but based on what was said, I think the show has some more very bad turn of events coming at them

I'm having an theory about Kara and others. Kara resurrected. Roslin and Baltar had head-people appear to them (though I'm not sure if I want to write off Roslin's delusions of the priestess as just being off her drugs). What if the 12 colonies are more "cylony" than they know or want to believe? Also, it would explain why Baltar survived the initial nukes... he didn't. He died with Caprica Six and resurrected. What if Kara, Baltar, Roslin, and two others are the "new" final five for when this all happens again?

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x15: "No Exit"

I remember early on that people weren't happy about Kobol being the origin of man and Earth being a colony. I wonder how these people feel about that now, or do we know enough to say that this is how it happened?

Oh, also: To those who were calling out the scroll at the beginning of the series about the Cylons having a plan.... I don't know about anyone else, but it sounded like there were some plans being described in this episode!

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x15: "No Exit"

I was impressed with the way they weaved Cavil's villain-ness into the Final Five. Feels a bit ret-conny but it made a twisted amount of sense.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x15: "No Exit"

It also makes sense of his name, eg. Cavil. One cavils, eg. objects, to something. I said sometime ago that his name is reflective of his character. Now we know. He objects to being human in any way. He hates himself. He hates humans. He hates the Five, Ellen in particular.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 4x15: "No Exit"

It was a quiet episode but I really enjoyed it. I just feel a little cheated we didn't find out about the whole deal with the head people, one true god, opera house and whatnot else.
