    Loved the episode, hated that music during the first 10 minutes. It was driving me crazy.

    Does anyone think Starbuck and co. will meet up with rebel Sharon and Six on Caprica? They seem to be setting things up for Chief/Sharon and Six/Baltar reunions. Lucky Chief, there are enough Sharons for everyone.

    I thought it was strange that during the debate about the planet the president didn't mention that they probably have spylons in the fleet, which would ultimately compromise the secrecy of the planet. Once the Cylons found it, it would be bye bye colony, since they couldn't jump away. They would pretty much be guaranteeing their destruction by settling there. If they found Earth they would have the same problem, but the president could argue that by then they might have a better way to detect spylons.

    That thought crossed my mind as well.

    Especially since he used the same line on the chief that Six used on Baltar in the mini-series...

    man the chief really gets screwed over in this show. Never a dull moment for him.

    definitly a lot of balls in the air. Interesting to see where they land (or wind up in a mountian).

    So nice to have multiple stories going on. I had to really pay attention again, which was missing from other episodes which I shall not name. . .

    Yeah, the Sharon wires in my arm thing was a little hokey, again. . . .

    I do believe that Raptor will come back in another episode, perhaps as Spylons during Season 3?

    I also think it is time we find out another Spylon. It would really give us something to do, going back and revisiting the episodes to "understand" them in a new light.

    I think I'm ready to start watching live time again :D

    Ok, so this is a bit off topic but as much as I enjoy BSG, which I do, I am finding it harder and harder to beleive that they cant detect cylons.


    1. Backs glow during whoopy - must be some LEDs in there or something
    2. Doc says Sharon's plumbing is all wrong when giving birth
    3. Sharon can plug her arm into computers..hmmmmmm

    Just a growing pet peeve as more of the 12 models show themselves

    Man, the whole time Starbuck was saying hello I was screaming (on the inside) for them to get moving, they were also making WAY to much noise while walking through the woods. Whenever you are on maneuvers like that it is all hand signals only. Knew that the Cylons were just waiting for them to get together so they could get them all. Have to wonder though at the good fortune of the Rebels and the Rescue team finding each other so quickly though. The Cylons were probably pushing them together but it still seemed pretty convenient for all involved. Have a feeling though that C-Sharon and C-6 will somehow save the day for the rescue team.

    Wish they could have used the time with Sharon in the briefing room to explain how her body can interface with a computer. Have to also wonder if Sharon somehow caused the one Raider to go off course.

    Boy, that chief sure has a BIG mouth, when the camera was showing Caley's perspective his mouth took up the whole screen.

    Next episode should be really good.

    Have a question though, are all the past Podcasts still available? Would like to listen to them all during the break until Season 3.

    ETA: Oh, and I almost forgot. That last debate was very biased against Roslin. The most important question and they save it for last. Then when Roslin gets to respond she is cut off and not allowed a chance to respond to Baltar after he cuts her off. Then at the end of the debate they interview Baltar’s campaign manager and nobody from Roslin’s camp (they were all with her). Really hate it when the media deliberately manipulates politics like that.

    He didn't say it was all wrong, he just could not understand why they did not update the plumbing to make it easier to give birth.

    I felt that was the whole reason (in the mind of the writers) for going back to Caprica. They'll get Caprica6, but something will probably happen to prevent the new Caprica Boomer from coming back (else deal with two Boomers in the fleet).

    Right, and the obvious answer would be, "Doctor, if they had done that then it would be too easy to detect them."

    Just thought of something, if they do get Caprica6 it is really going to screw things up for Baltar.

    Yeah, I just don't get how she can plug a wire from her arm into computers yet have that ability invisible to detection...

    That is the problem I had with the whole debate. Anyone with a half a brain would know that there are spylons in the fleet and that would comprimise the location of the new planet. I did not see the chief thing coming at all it was nice to see dean stockwell he did a good job. I still think it is silly that adama would risk a good portion of his raptors and piliots to save a few people.

    I got the impression for a second that the fight on Caprica was between someone else and not the rescuers/rebellion. Like it would be CapricaBoomer and Caprica6 vs. the other Cylons.

    Only if the Spylons can get away from the planet, find the Cylons, and report back to them...

    Since you know the answer is in there, can you summarize the relevant part?
