The Centurions off in space will encounter a reptilian race.

These reptilians will become inspired by the Centurions, and they will start to call themselves Cylons. Eventually, they will build their own machines...

And the cycle will start again...

Was that Starbuck reflected in that pond? It seemed to me when Lee turned his back there was a female figure outlines and looked very much like Starbuck. I'll post caps later.

I only have one question. What the hell was up with William Shatner's cameo?

Truly worst part was he still found a way for his shirt to be torn and fall off.

I think I'm gonna be sick.

I guess he's the God that has a plan or some such mystical nonsense. But you know RDM, no direct answers.

What was the significance of Ellen rubbing herself up and down again that tree well Tigh's pervy one eye nearly popped out of his skull? Did I miss something?

The part with Adama sleeping in the fully built cabin turning out to be a dream sequence? Lame. Looks like he's going to be building it all season.

It was so obvious a metaphor for giving Tigh a woody.

Only to be blown up in the season finale by the returning Centurions.

And I guess Romo is still the President while Lee is off climbing mountains and stuff. But I thought they spread out, so why do they need a president still.

You seriously want Adama to pull a cabin out of his ass in the first episode?

I'm immune to dream sequences on this show by now. After Tigh shooting Adama and the mutineers shooting Adama, it's not surprising. I fully expect Adama's cabin to shoot Adama next week.

Re: Battlestar Galactica 5x01: "Slowly the Hands on a Shovel"

Excellent. Those of you complaining about how this episode "didn't advance the plot," I am really sick of hearing this kind of whining. This show is about the characters, and it always has been. Lee having to go from being the President to being the de facto mayor of a farming village is such an interesting transformation for his character. In some ways, he has less responsibility... yet, in other ways, he has even more.

That entire act of Adama making mud bricks for his cabin was inspired. They were technically accurate, too. I hope it doesn't take all season to get it built, though it's very much like RDM to drag it out like that.

Was it just me, or was that some kind of exo-suit towards the end? I swear it looked like it had Cavil's face, too.

Well I had to go with an average. It was like the episode was written by fanboys.

Where the hell is Ron Moore? Don't you care anymore?

Re: Battlestar Galactica 5x01: "Slowly the Hands on a Shovel"

I missed last weeks episode, so some of the things I saw in 5x01 were to say the least, suprising. Where the hell did the little androgynous guy that looks like Paul Williams Junior come from, how come he's a doctor, and who the hell comes up with a last name of "Zee" given all the other names in the series?

I'm sorry, but I gotta boycott any other season 5 episodes. It's jumped the shark, gang.

This is the one where Baltar suggests and begins to implement a planetwide repopulation plan, right? I love the double meaning of the title. They have to plow, because they're farmers... but "plow" is also slang for sex.

I swear, RDM is the greatest writer working in the industry today.

Did anyone else laugh when the tribeswoman asked Baltar, "You Alive?" and then cluncked him over the head with that giant club?

Nice throwback to the miniseries.

I also enjoyed watching Adama try to teach some inner-settlement kids the importance of Calculus.
