As a TiVo user, I skip commercials. I didn't see it.
I did too, until I saw the glowing spine and the Galactica logo during the 2xFF. Then I *had* to go back and watch it.
30 second skip is your friend. Do not be tempted by the commercial overlords.
Why? Everyone's entitled to their opinion... I just don't understand yours. What made it offensive?
I actually like the "cylon-sympathizer" storyline.
The show is about the ways in which people cope with calamity. It's not that far-fetched that some people would be so traumatized by the destruction of their civilization and the loss of their loved-ones, that they might embrace such a desperate wish-fulfilling worldview.
After all, Bush is the real terrorist, and if we only admitted that we are really to blame for Osama and 9/11, then peace would spontaneously break out and we would all live happily ever after
Not that far-fetched a response at all...
I'm w/dswallow on this episode. Thought it was a mess. It was the first one in quite awhile that didn't leave me immediately wanting more. In fact, I fell asleep during it and had to come back and finish up the last 20 minutes later. Bleh.
I thought those were just the blood diagrams/equations he was working on ...
As for the commercial ... I totally missed it too. I started FF'ing as soon as it faded to black after the explosion on the tylium refinery ship. So I went back and watched and am puzzled as well ... why give something like that away in the middle of the episode?
I had high hopes but was let down by the complete miracle cure. I have to play it back but I think she flat lined for 1-2 seconds so the profacy about her dying is now technically done. I was hoping they could extend her life for like a year. I would not mind the pro cyclone people if they were not so orginized and so effective so damn fast. Put up a resistance in a matter of 2 weeks is really reaching. I just hope the show picks it up the rest of the season because the last 2 episodes have been pretty weak.
I make it a rule to use the 30 second skip instead of FF for the scifi channel...their in-house promos are notorious for spoilers...they don't play teasers, they play spoilers...the absolute height of stupidity, IMO...
she dddn't have to die of cancer. As long as she dies before they get to earth then they didn't break any rules.
This episode felt disorganized. Haven't listened to the podcast yet, so maybe it was on purpose. It wasn't up to the normal high standard.
The baby cylon cure was disappointing. Very last minute Star Trek'ish. So is the president now "infected"? Will they use this miracle cure on other sick people? Did the cylon/human blood also "fix" the organs that were damaged by the cancer? Uhhgg.
they said she had a road to recovery but the "cancer is gone"
If the cylons use some type of nanotechnology that affects the brain, did they just infect the President?
I've been thinking worse than that: Maybe after it wipes our her cancer it will then target her normal cells and slowly convert her into a Cylon? And she might not even know it's happening until it's too late.
That's why it was a good choice by the writers.
I can only imagine what would happen if she started having "visions" like Gaius. She's already convinced she's prophetic. The things they could do with this. I'm eager to see where we go.
Resistance is futile...or something like that.
Cloud 9 Six was the best she's ever looked. Wow.
The problem is that just removing the cancer isn't enough. Cancer isn't what kills you. It's the damage it does to the organs that kills you. If she was almost at death, just removing the cancer wouldn't have been enough. The cylon tech would also have to repair everything.
It does open up so interesting plot lines, but I still don't like it.
Or plot holes.
The director's commentary indicated that they've deliberatly played around with the liberal notiions and that the point of view of the show is supposedly neutral even if the most writers have a liberal bias. I also was taken aback by the depiction of the anti-war faction. Obviously in a situation like this, when there is clear and present danger, anti-war protesters would be nothing but wack. I mean seriously when 49,598 souls are all that are left of a world of billions, there's not much room for pacifism. But, comparing it to Earth history, pacifism and anti-war protesters have and continue to have an important role to play in the world stage.
So this episode was an interesting and controversial inversion of our Earth paridigm about war.
I think in the end, it will be forgiveness and understanding that is going to be the key to the survival of both the Humans and the Cylons. The whole thing with the saving of President Roslyn with antigens taken from the Human/Cylon fetus shows that.
