    Pretty good ep...the scene with Duela and Adama didn't work for me, though...I understand its deeper meaning, but the dialogue seemed too cryptic...people don't talk like that...

    Glad the priestess is dead, though!

    Where did Boomer get this rocket launcher from? it was just sitting there on the hill waiting for her? how did she know it was there?

    I wonder about that, too. She took it off a dead guy, but who was the dead guy? I geuss it was supposed to be one of the guys who came with them, but he seemed off in a different direction.

    The one thing I want to repeat is that they should have killed Boomer!!
    Geez, they fall for it every time. It's so obvious she's playing them. I'd take my chances on finding the temple on my own.

    I guess Boomer didn't have a good placemark on Google Kobol.

    Ok, so the new CAG was a misstep. It seemed like he was thrown to the wolves without adequate training for his new role, although there may not have been anyone to train him.

    There was some really great shot composition in this episode (photography, I mean).

    For example, some of the close-ups of Duela in Adama's office where you saw just her face, not her hair or uniform. I never realized she was so pretty.

    And then that scene with Lee and Kara sitting back-to-back...

    I really enjoyed the subtlety of the blond Cylon telling Dr. Baltar about humans and their "self-destructive behavior" as he stood there smoking a cigarette (which many consider self-destructive). ;)

    And I HATED the preview for next week. They give away too much (or they appear to be).

    No, they didn't. They're messing with you.
    A lot of it was shot in the weirdly-colored, solarized style they've used for Roslin's hallucinations.

    When thay landed on Kobol and looked up at the ridge they needed to get to.......Was I the only one thinking, "Everyone back on the ship. Let's fly to up there."

    I heard the part about "humans being the masters of self-destruction" that Number 6 stated, but at the beginning of that scene I couldn't make out what Baltar was saying. I kept rewinding to go over it, but still couldn't make it all out. Anyone know?

    This is really a great series.

    absolutely! it made no sense why they needed to go on foot...but then they said something about looking for graves to mark the path...

    seemed that the symbol on the stone was a lot like a cross, though, which was a little strange...

    Exactly--Boomie didn't know where the path was, only how to follow the path. Which, I'm guessing, she couldn't do from the air.

    I found it funny that in a show that relies on religious themes, but not specifically as far as I can tell, religions of earth, that Apollo said "For Christ's sake."

    That's funny, because I was thinking just the opposite. I thought to myself, , ,
    "Is that Ice-T's daughter? Yuck." :p

    As to the previews for next week, here is my opinion:

    Hey, how do you do those spoiler alerts??? :confused:

    you can preview your post to see if you did it right as well...

    I totally missed that...what scene was it in? I'd like to replay and check...that's got to be a terrible mistake by the producer to let that slip...

    I didn't hear that either.

    As for my random observations...

    Dee is absolutely beautiful. They really play her looks down big time. To my completely unbiased queer eye, she's much more beautiful than Six.

    Yet another great episode. Not to disagree, but I actually liked the scene between Dee and Adama. I was also sorry to see the priest go.

    I believe that Boomer got the weapon from the Toaster that fell off the cliff.

    I was screaming at the TV when "to be continued" came up on the screen. This show goes by so quickly. I told my Partner that our hotel in Hawaii had better have the Sci-Fi channel. I think we can take an hour out of our vacation for our favorite show. I can't fathom not being able to watch another episode until we get back on Labor Day.
