As Suspected, I Was In The Minority

Nope, I did not have a panic attack when LJ was down. Honestly, I wish it would have lasted longer. I liked not having to keep checking back for fear I missed something important. It was a nice little vacation.

Today was more craptacular then I would have guessed. Am I going to go into detail? Noooooo. Because I've come to the conclusion I hate rehashing stuff.

I was looking forward to seeing 'In Good Company' tomorrow as was my friend who I was going with. But, she just called because her mother guilted her into going to some family party she doesn't want to go to on the other side of the fricken state. Sigh.

On a happier note, I watched the first two episodes of Battlestar Galactica last night and didn't hate it. :) Even better, the group I was sort-of having a live chat with and I found much to mock. danceswithwords is working on nicknames for all the charcaters, but the one she came up with for Number 6 seems to have stuck already - CWB or Cylon With Breasts. ;-)

Between the CWB and Starbuck there was much cleavage to be seen. I will forgive this if we get to see some of Apollo's attributes too...preferably while he's taking a shower. :)

I find the concept of the Cylons being so intrigued with God (I'm guessing they are attempting to find a reason for their existence and probably can't bring themselves to attribute that to the humans who they feel they are superior to), but I grew annoyed/bored with it being brought up so often. Maybe it will be toned down in future eps.

My other big problem is if Boomer is to be so pivitol to the show's storyline, they should have found a stronger actress for the part. You could see the poor girl struggling to find a way to bring certain emotions out. Yeah, I know, that could be the cylon in her struggling, but I think it's just a lack of ability.

The Boomer on Galactica seems to be fighting her programing. Did the Cylon's screw up programming her? Or has she spent too much time around humans?

I do like that they are dealing with the occupation of the twelve colonies. That's one thing the original never dealt with. They just took off when there were probably millions of survivors left behind to fend for themselves.

The focus of the show isn't all about the adventures of Starbuck and Apollo as it was in the original series. I'm enjoying the ensemble feel.

I do wish the original theme music had somehow been incorporated more
into the opening credits. It was much more stirring then what they have now.

One thing I noted and I don't know if it's significant, but the humans refer to the "Gods" while the Cylons refer to "God". This would seem to parallel humanities own religious evolution from polytheism to monotheism.

With the recent Tsunami disaster, the wall of pictures was disturbing to see.

And, finally, I just couldn't understand how they all kept dwelling on blowing up the carrier ship. It did not jump with the other ships. It showed up hours later, filled with nuclear warheads, ignored commands to hold position, plotted a course heading directly towards the Galactica, and on a fly by you could see there was no one on board. And then the Cylons suddenly showed up. Where the hell is the doubt coming from? I was practically screaming at Apollo to hit that damn button already.

If anyone knows where to find an Apollo icon, let me know.

ETA: Nevermind, found one! :)

The nutso doctor's fantasy conversations with the bosomy cylon are making me homicidal.

Not to mention all his ticks and quirks. I think he studied at the Sandy Dennis School of twitching Acting.

enough already.
Did you see the eps? I know you were questioning when and if they were airing in Canada.

Baltar seems less twitchy when he's not being haunted by Number 6. I actually enjoyed his scene with Starbuck. My one concern is that we are going to find out he has a chip in his head. First off, Number 6 being a manifestation of his insanity caused by guilt is more interesting and, secondly, it would be a blatant rip off of 'Farscape'.
I've seen 5, but not 6. Which I'm now spoiled for :p.

Space is showing it on Saturdays. Yay! But only showed the one ep.

Actually, all mockery aside, I'm glad to hear he's becoming less of a pain. Thanks.
Baltar and Starbuck have a scene together. That's a spoiler?! It had to happen at some point ya know. It's not like I told you they were _______ while _______ and then he ______. :p
they were _______ while _______ and then he ______.

They were? While you know? And he did?

Damn. No point in even watching now.
Hey, I have the TV in a whole other room too! Though, granted, they are right next to each other and I had the sound turned way up so I knew when to bolt. :)

YAY! to PK Wars. I wonder if there will be any interesting extras?
I hear teh US DVD is gettinga little jipped since it looks like the UK release is the only one to have delted scenes (Damn you, Lion's Gate).
So watching the U.S. Figure Skating Championship last night wasn't a bad choice?
Hee. Can't tell you yet. I'm not ready to unceasingly pimp Galactica like I have with 'House' (Tuesday at 8cst ;). But, it had enough going for it to hold my attention for awhile.
