    It occured to me not long ago that an idea they've "been kicking around since the end of the first season" doesn't Have to be someone we know. We all just assumed it was.

    Another thing... Seeing most of the main characters, Colonial and Cylon alike standing on Earth smacked of "beam-down-to-the-planet-and-take-the-entire-senior-staff-with-you", which sounds like something Moore talks about avoiding, but I loved it anyway.

    :lol: :techman:
    I do wish we could have actually seen Bill give the order for Saul to be arrested.

    huh, I could almost swear that was Tigh saying: "you're the 5th?" to my ear he sounded rather surprised, which ah would be saying alot...

    I'm sure it will end up on youtube soon enough.

    Re-watching from my recording:

    It was definitely "You're the fifth" not "We're the fifth." It didn't sound like a question, by the way. Astonishment, yes...but not a question.

    It's already up. :D

    Sounds like Tigh saying "You're the 5th?" to me.

    Excellent.

    I'll write a full review eventually but that was simply unbelievable. Amazing. Bradley, David and Ron hit it out of the fucking park tonight.

    Olmos and Hogan were astonishingly excellent.

    Also, did anyone else get excited when they heard the watchtower music?

    Oh, you are right, it does sound like "You're the fifth" in that youtube clip, don't know why it sounded like he said "We" to me on my TV broadcast, heh, crazy

    His reaction was the best of all the cast-members/characters. :lol:

    Probably not, and I'm not gonna analyze it further. It was too cool a scene. :lol:

    Reminds me of this. I always thought it would be cool to see an anime-style shot of the BSG gang like that, and we got it.

    :cool:

    Well we're at it, I think Laura is torching the Scrolls of Pythia in that clip. Can the hiatus end already!

    Nah, we need to go "Macross" style and have the new human colonies built around the wreck of the Galactica*


    As for the final moments...best...sci-fi...TV...ever. Just absolutely beautiful and very fitting. Yeah the ending was a down note, but I think that was the only way it really could have went. After all the show is about the struggle for survival, not merely surviving. I think the key to the revival of Earth is going to be in the blending of Cylons and Humans.

    Here's the official SciFi Channel description for the next episode which won't air until 2009...
    Starbuck learns that the dire predictions of the Cylon Hybrid might be true, and a devastating discovery plunges the fleet into chaos and despair.

    Well, if we call the Statue of Liberty Aurora, then I guess it's also possible that they are standing on Ellis Island. I mean, think about it, the SoL could be, using their mythology, called Aurora and the Ellis Island facilities could sensibly be called "The Temple of Aurora."
