Galactica Makes Everything Better

After a craptacular late afternoon at work (if you didn't already know, American Express is a corporate subsidiary of Hell), I arrived home to find in my mailbox my BSG mini DVD, the latest Entertainment Weekly with Willy Wonka/Johnny Depp on the cover and an interview with Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty singer, NOT 'Veronica Mars' creator) inside and NO BILLS! :)

Then I sat down to watch the rest of the BSG marathon on Sci-Fi only leaving the couch when nature called. Now, I'm going to make a statement that may or may not shock some of you (it did surprise me), but my love of Apollo has superseded that of Spike. And, no, it's not just for the obvious reasons, I do have *some* depth people. I adore the layers to this character and how incredibly complex (and fragile) his emotional state is. I'm not sure that it was seeing some of these eps for the fourth fifth sixth time that led me to this revelation or if it was something I caught a glimpse of in the latest promo. If you've seen the promos or don't mind knowing what's in them follow me...

The promo that has been running the past six weeks or so with Lee being dragged away screaming "He's my father!" has left a knot in my stomach every.single.time. Then we had promo #2 wherein Laura tells Lee that all Hell breaking loose has happened for a reason, it's meant to be, yadda, yadda and Lee following up "I'm glad you have something to believe in. I wish I did." My poor lost and alone boy. He needs a hug and someone to tell him he did the right thing. I'm willing to volunteer.

Now, after seeing these snippets of angst and tragedy and pain and worrying about what this may do to our hero I saw this exchange....

Tigh: "You sided with that woman against the old man. You're not fit to wear a uniform."

Apollo: (Not missing a beat, turns to him with an ever so slight, cocky smile) "Then again, neither are you."


*That's* the Apollo I love. Ideologiocally, he may be certain as to what is right, yet he'll doubt his actions in support of his beliefs. And he may feel he doesn't deserve to wear a Colonial officer's uniform because he did betray an oath he took when joining the military service. But, he's not going to be judged/take crap from someone who himself commited an illegal act by overthrowning the legitimate government.

Damn, I love season 2 and it hasn't even started yet.

Um, can computers know they are being replaced? Because my computer is suddenly acting oddly. =/
