Great Article by Mo Ryan on 'Sometimes a Great Notion'

Mo Ryan has posted Part 1 of on interview with Ron Moore which covers events and developments in 'Sometimes a Great Notion'. In addition to Moore, Mo has posted thoughts from writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle as well as the director, Michael Nankin. The most fascinating part of the article, for me, was reading about the thoughts and feeling of cast and crew as they filmed what many thought to be their last episode during the early days of the writers strike. And, I have to agree, the actors emotions informed their work.

Ron and I seem to be totally in sync on Dee. Woo!

I am a little concerned about the decision to make Ellen the fifth Cylon came after the other four were chosen and after Ellen was killed. But I'm willing to reserve judgment for now. And it seems Cavil will play some sort of role in her return, which I suspected.

Ron seemed to be dodging the earth question in the same way he dodged questions about Kara's death in 'Maelstrom':

That planet is Earth? We’re not going to find out, “Oh, there’s this other Earth over here...” This is the only Earth we’ll see?

They have found Earth. This is the Earth that the 13th Colony discovered, they christened it Earth. They found Earth.

He didn't say yes to "This is the only earth we'll see?" So, yes, I accept this is the earth the 13th tribe colonized, but is it our earth? Is it the earth they are meant to find? If the cycle of time keeps repeating, could there be a dozen earths out there?
