    yep. if the series is setup that this is indeed Earth than no question it is evoking New York.

    They have history back 5000 years for the colonies.
    So sure lots happened back on Earth - I am sure.

    My bet is it is Earth adn New York City (though they may never bother to show which city for sure) and we will get some back story on what happened while the Colonists were away.

    True. So why not make President Lee the new Admiral? Heck, he's done everything else... even commanded a Battlestar before. Need someone to fill in as Admiral, Lawyer, President, fry cook, bartender... this sounds like a job for Superman Lee!!! ;):D

    I agree. In fact when they first jumped there and Gaita (I think) made the statement that the "constellations match", or something to that effect, I took that to mean that they were in fact at Earth.

    Well it looks like they'll make them this summer and then air them this fall.

    Seems like a waste though. Like Razor, they're supposed to be expansions on the story thus far. Does anybody really want more about the story we've already seen? Let's just move the thing along already!

    Ok, enought of these silly plot discussusions.

    Did anybody notice Adama drooling on Lee's hand while he was having his emotional breakdown?

    Also (and I may be crazy) but it looked like Roslyn was pinching Baltar's nipple while she was bandaging him. Anyone catch that?

    Wow.

    I had thought they might find an Earth before modern times, but I did not expect this. It's back in January you say?

    Nah, I'll watch them. :)

    Unlike some people I think even the worst BSG episode is better than most TV. I'm just more interested in seeing what's ahead rather than revisiting the past.

    One thing I forgot to mention is for me, this whole episode felt like a series finale! I had the same feeling watching this that I did when I watched Star Trek Voyager: Endgame (which is not to say I am comparing the quality of it to the other!!).

    I am so glad there are going to be more episodes because they could very easily have ended the whole show like this. Can you imagine if this had been the very last one???

    I was really surprised when they just jumped straight to Earth. I thought that once they had the coordinates, it would still be a series of several jumps away, and the last several episodes of the series would deal with the adventures they had while trying to get there, with them arriving in the final episodes.

    This is the same as Crusade was planned. There was to be fallout from finding the cure on Crusade. There will be fallout from finding earth on Galactica. (JMS even called it the Voyager problem I think)

    As far as the ep goes, I thought it was decent, and I guess I am the only one
    who, once the show started, thought they would find earth by the end of this ep. What other cliffhanger could the give us. ---Here are the four we know and the fifth is right behind this door cut to "..to be continued". There weren't a whole lot of other options.

    Had to go back to the previous episode to check that one out! I didn't see any nipple pinching, but I did notice a shot of her holding the IV Bag on Balter's chest before she even took it out and hooked it up. ;)

    It was an even better actink job by Jamie Bamber. If it were me, I'd jump back and scream "EWWWWWWW! Dude, you totally drooled on me!!!!" :mad:

    :D

    so, finally watched this and, let me see if i have this right. the viper basically told them 'go here' and the cylon 5 (4, whatever), kara, all their searching, revealing, hearing 'music', etc., was just to set up a viper that came from nowhere leading them back to earth in one jump?

    then {and i'm sure this has been brought up, sorry if i'm repeating} kara figures it out and RUNS through a fracking battlestar instead of picking up the, oh, i dunno, PHONE and then magically everyone who was just about to nuke each other and blow people out of airlocks stops and gets together for a kumbaya moment b/c MagicViper(tm) squaked?

    oh, and earth is a desolate, destroyed planet, so the magic viper came from, um, where again (wasn't the cylons or humans, so who the frack did that?)

    and during this wonderful storyline, the one cool character on the show turns into this sniveling, dribbling shell of a leader?

    w

    t

    f


    i've been pretty tolerant/supportive of the show/crappy plot lines/etc. but am i just missing something {please say "yeah, you missed this critical thing!!"}??

    I interpretted that as "We, the directors, edited out the additional jumps." They did mention that it was a series of jumps when they were looking at the charts, and Adama said that they'd go fast to keep the fleet from falling apart again.
