Something to look for as a difference between them and humans
Well, cylons WANT to be as human as possible, as I understand it. That would be another reason not to try and improve it.
I thought it made him out to be really arrogant. Oh well. Like I've said before, I completely agree that is ridiculous for fans to complain about a dog barking or a "beep" in the podcast, but I think it's also ridiculous for him to react to them publicly.
Yes, 5 minutes was an overstatement. But 30 seconds was enough to find it annoying and childish.
I think you're right. Didn't they also show a brief clip of this during one of the recent "Previously On" clips?
Well, just because they showed a clip on the "previously on" doesn't mean it was ACTUALLY previously on, as we've learned.
I agree. I see Caprica6 playing a large part in their rescue, in an attempt to see Baltar again. Now THAT's going to be fun, (if it happens.) Watching Baltar interact with Caprica6, while the 6 in his head is still there.
Also, in the podcast, this was brought up about the upcoming episode:
Moore and his wife tell us that they really took a big risk with this one. His wife goes on about how for 2 weeks she hated the episode, but that the more she thought about it, the more it grew on her and now she loves it. Moore claims that the viewer is either going to love it or hate it.
I've GOT to think they're talking about a new spylon that we're about to find out about. Did anyone else get a different vibe from that? WIth that shot of Duala in the last episode, I'm guessing it's her.
it's frakkin' space man!
Let's not forget the Baltar in 6's head...
So if Caprica-Six and Baltar were in the same room, would their imaginary friends be able to see each other?
(Which was a joke when I started typing it, but now I'm starting to wonder...)
A few things.
- Agree with those who didn't like the music. One of the small but annoying nits I have with this show is that they can't seem to establish a consistent musical backdrop. It changes often and sometimes jarringly. Contrast that with shows like Alias or Lost, where the scoring is very familiar and tied to the mood of the show.
- If Caprica 6 does join up with Starbuck and return to Galactica, it'll make for an interesting problem. Obviously, she knows about Baltar's treachery, but she also loves him. She could go either way ... or he could push her one way or another.
- I switched from D* to cable about 3 months ago. The difference in PQ on standard def channels was startling. Much higher quality on cable and the difference widened when my local operator went to digital simulcast. I miss Tivo, but I don't miss the overly pixelated D* feed
- Do the Cylon's have any "hive mind" capabilities? IOW, can they communicate telepathically with other nearby Cylons? If so, will the hybrid baby eventually start "phoning home" to mama?
No hive mind. They just upload on death.
They've been a little inconsistent with that. There have been times when the only way information could have been passed is through some form of telepathy.
I think, sadly, this is yet another example of something they haven't really thought through.
Well, no one on Caprica has telepathy, then.
And, how does that uploading work anyway? If uploading is a physical phenomena, shouldn't it be detectable?
What if the body was immediately incinerated by a nuclear bomb, can the "soul" still upload?
If they killed the baby, whose body would the memories transfer to?
Oh let it go. As has already been said here, the podcasts are FREE. And I'm guessing Ron Moore is a pretty busy guy. Him mocking Internet losers complaining about a free service makes me like him all the more. Probably not fair, but I picture the whiners as the comic book guy from the Simpsons.
Worst. Podcast. Evar!
Oh yeah... And it's pretty obvious they're setting us up for Dualla to be a spylon. Either that or we're being deliberately mislead with an unfortunate editing choice. That lingering shot couldn't have been any more obvious if they just made her spine glow.
Hahah.. Well, it's not like Ron Moore is OBLIGATED to do a podcast or material for director's/producer's commentary for DVDs. Although I missed a lot of the podcasts (partly because he said around beginning of season 2a that there would be spoilers and later he backed down), I'm still glad he's doing them. There aren't that many shows doing anything like this.
I remember when JMS of B5 participated in Usenet which was fairly unusual for the time.
I haven't listened to all the podcasts, but maybe they do have the whole story line figured out from beginning to end like B5. I wouldn't say B5 was surperior but it was neat how things did all fit together in the end.
The plot holes have been huge IMHO as well. I still can't believe that Adama and company can maintain that they're headed in the right direction towards Earth. I still can't figure out people haven't picked up on Baltar's odd behavior (when interacting w/Six). If I were in Adama's shoes, I wouldn't trust Sharon either and would probably want the baby killed.
I, too, hope that the BSG writing crew have the whole thing plotted out to a logical conclusion with the ability to extend things out, if necessary. Babylon 5 has set a very high bar as far as plotting goes for me.
