Did anyone else laugh when the tribeswoman asked Baltar, "You Alive?" and then cluncked him over the head with that giant club?
Yeah, that was great. Though I wonder how she dyed her animal hide that shade of red...

I fully expect Adama's cabin to shoot Adama next week.
They're saving that for sweeps.

I just saw that the spoilers hit the interwebs this morning about the epic 2 parter coming up, 5x04 Plow Me Gently part 1 and 5x05 Plow Me Gently part 2
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.
This week's title was appropriate too since it fits with Bill getting Laura back.

Excellent! Particularly the part where the pack of hyenas devoured Helo alive.

Okay, your threads need to have some connecting basis here. Helo can't be alive in one person's post and dead in another's! Right now I have to pick and choose what y'all say to set up the next episode synopsis.

Actually, no one on this show can ever die for good, as we'll find out in a couple weeks about the "resurrection microbes" that remade Starbuck, brought Laura back, and killed Helo (only so they could bring him back, too.)

I'm quite sure Temis was just mouthing off.

Helo's got the mystery virus from 5x01, and I'm waiting eagerly for the show to return to his storyline down the road.

Yeah, I enjoyed that part too, but we find out in the first 30 seconds of 5x02 "Faith in Flames" that Helo inexplicably survives with only minor injures.


Sorry, I tried to put that in spoiler code, but I couldn't figure it out.

This is BSG, of course he can! He keeps getting resurrected by the monotheists' "God" and killed off again by Zeus. BSG's answer to Kenny McCormick.

You can see the tension building against Lee as the honeymoon is seemingly starting to wear off and the others are getting upset at leaving things behind. I thought the part where Tigh was making his own distilliary using the tree roots was funny, he will need to do more than that to get drunk again.

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

The brief scene of the free Centurions walking about their control center, looking at each other and the walls and wondering what to do with themselves was very moving. Bear's music brought their feelings of loneliness and confusion home to me. What do you bet these guys turn around and go back to Earth by mid-season? Mayhem will ensue!

Also: SPOILER ALERT





Adama WILL be building his cabin all season. Apparently the building process is some kind of 'journey' for him. Who knows what it will mean.

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

Just two things:

1) I loved the way Adama grumbled for everyone to "do their jobs" when he employed a whole bunch of Eights as slave labor to build his cabin.

2) Ship of Lights! Ship of Lights! Anyone want to bet the ship of lights is responsible?
