Battlestar Galactica stuff

Most of this post is transferred from another blog. It is stuff about Battlestar Galactica. Most of it doesn't matter now, cause we pretty much learned the identities of the other Cylons on Sunday, but I thought I'd post it anyway.

Carl Lumbly on Battlestar Galactica

Did anybody notice that doctor declared Bulldog was not a Cylon based on the fact that his DNA profile was the same as the one on record from three years ago?

Doesn't really prove that he's not a Cylon, does it?

Not that he is a Cylon. It's very unlikely that he's a Cylon. It's very unlikely that a Cylon spy just happens to be the pilot that got that particular black ops mission. If the Cylons deliberately sent him to get a mission like that, the odds of him actually being chosen for the mission have to be extremely small.

But the DNA profile just proves that he's either the same man that left three years ago, who may or may not have been a Cylon, or that he's one of the copies of the same model Cylon, if he was a Cylon, right?

I didn't see anything to suggest that the story is going to go that way, but when the doc first said that, I'm like--hey, that doesn't prove anything, so why'd he'd say that? Something is up with that. He wouldn't have said that just to being saying that.

But, everyone has not read the same books on writing that I have, so maybe he did say that just to be saying that.

Anybody think that we're descended from the Cylons or Sharron's baby instead of the thirteenth colony or people from the fleet?

BSG discussion

Not much to say about last week. Except that I went to dinner with some friends, who were swearing a lot because Battlestar Galactica is moving to Sundays.

Then someone made a rude joke about Caprica Six. He said she should have named Caprica Five.

You figure it out.

That was followed by someone deciding what the remaining five Cylons were called.

I'm not going to explain that one either.

BSG joke

My brother loaned me his Space: Above and Beyond dvds.

I think I know why the blond Cylon on the new Battlestar Galactica is number six.

(the following is new material)

And that's all of Battlestar Galactica that we are going to get for the rest of the year. Not just the rest of the season, but the rest of the year. The new episodes won't start for at least nine months, which has led to a lot of swearing and a lot of jokes.

Nine months? Is somebody pregnant?

Well, actresses have gotten pregnant before, and they usually don't stop filming for nine months because of it. They film around the lady, or they hide her behind stuff, or they have her character kidnapped or sent to another country for a few months, or they pretend that she's trapped in a bottle for most of the season. They probably wouldn't stop filming for nine months unless half the cast all got pregnant at the same time.

The popular idea seems to be that something was filmed for the show that they now regret, that doesn't fit in with what they are writing for next season, and if they make us wait long enough we'll forget about whatever it was and not notice the problem.

I figured I'd wait a bit to let all the other BSG fans chime in before adding my views to this mix.

Any ideas of "us" being descended from any characters on the show were turned upside down with that last episode which centered around a Bob Dylan song. Bob's pretty old, but not that old.

I don't read the BSG blogs much at all, so I was surprised that the hiatus announced at the end of that last episode would be at *least* nine months.

It might make some of the fans swear a lot and generate new Blonde Caprica jokes that I won't get. However, even though it is (right now) my favorite show, I have no problem putting it aside and mostly forgetting about it until it starts again.

I'd look forward to more BSG blog posts, but with the show not currently airing for the rest of the year, it would be quite interstandable if there are not any.

I know we are indeed going to watch all of the original BSG episodes during this hiatus. One of us has seen many of them only once. The other has not really ever seen them before.
