  • 8:58 PM pcnerd37 – In response to the comment I wont approve, I honestly forget to do a dry run of the other live blogging software this week and I didn’t want to try it on a major live blog like this without trying it first. I will put it in my todo list to test it out before next weeks so that if I like it, I will use it.

  • 9:12 PM pcnerd37 – He is now talking to her in bed.
  • 9:13 PM pcnerd37 – This conversation between him and boomer seems to be taking place in his mind or in the past while playing some old memories of her in his mind.
  • 9:13 PM pcnerd37 – All of the jumping around is making it very hard to live blog everything this week.
  • 9:14 PM pcnerd37 – The power cuts out on him.

  • 9:34 PM pcnerd37 – Now she is asking the composer person how she could find her body and still be there. Is she a ghost or demon or something?
  • 9:34 PM pcnerd37 – Until that point, she felt very clear. She thought she had purpose but now is lost again.
  • 9:35 PM pcnerd37 – He says that just because she doesnt know her direction doesn’t mean she doesn’t have one.
  • 9:35 PM pcnerd37 – The chief is asking a personal favor for the President not to sign Sharon’s extradition papers.
  • 9:35 PM pcnerd37 – He is begging her not to sign them.
  • 9:35 PM pcnerd37 – She signs them.

  • 9:37 PM pcnerd37 – We are now back with Kara and the piano player.
  • 9:38 PM pcnerd37 – He is now talking about a past relationship. He left some girl because she wanted him to stop playing piano. She told him to get a real job.
  • 9:38 PM pcnerd37 – Kara gets angry with him for ditching his family like her father did to her.
  • 9:38 PM pcnerd37 – The power is back up which I’m guessing what the chief turned off.

  • 9:39 PM pcnerd37 – The piano player is asking Kara to play what her father taught her. She wont because of what her dad did to her in leaving her and never coming back.

  • 9:40 PM pcnerd37 – We now see Boomber attack a sharon in the bathroom.
  • 9:41 PM pcnerd37 – Commercial.
  • 9:42 PM pcnerd37 – As much as I like the idea of having a bunch of identical skin jobs, its near impossible to tell them apart unless you are really paying attention as to which one is which.
  • 9:43 PM pcnerd37 – I would say Katee Sackhoff is the hottest although from being around Grace Park at Starfest a few years ago, I will say she is very hot in person.
  • 9:44 PM pcnerd37 – You could tell that the Sharons were swapped by the gash in the head of the one in the brig that he hit with the wrench.

  • 9:46 PM pcnerd37 – His sharen is gagged and bleeding in the stall and can kind of see them going at it through the door.
  • 9:46 PM pcnerd37 – And now back to the piano.
  • 9:47 PM pcnerd37 – Kara is trying to play but says something is missing. He is trying to figure out what it is.
  • 9:47 PM pcnerd37 – Kara realizes something about the drawing from Hera. Apparently it is musical notes.
  • 9:48 PM pcnerd37 – The drawing just looks like dots until she thinks about it as music. He sees it and starts playing and tells her to jump in when she is ready.
  • 9:48 PM pcnerd37 – We now see the Boomer picking up Hera from daycare saying that she forgot about her physical.
  • 9:48 PM pcnerd37 – The final 3 cylons in the bar seem to recgonize the music and look in Kara’s direction.
  • 9:49 PM pcnerd37 – Tigh seems to be the most struck by the music.
  • 9:49 PM pcnerd37 – They recognize the song from something as they stop playing.
  • 9:50 PM pcnerd37 – Tigh asks her where she learned to play it. She says she played it as a child. They want to know who drew the notes as she looks at the crayon drawing.
  • 9:51 PM pcnerd37 – The chief and Boomer are talking in a raptor when the projection kicks in again and they are making out in their house.
  • 9:52 PM pcnerd37 – We now have Helo giving a briefing when the beat up sharon shows up and tells him that it was the Boomer in the locker room and wants to know if she has Hera.
  • 9:52 PM pcnerd37 – Helo tells everybody to be alerted and look for her and Hera.
  • 9:53 PM pcnerd37 – Adama knows that Boomer is in a raptor in the tube. She has fired up engines.
  • 9:53 PM pcnerd37 – They launch a viper and get ready to attack if she leaves. She says they wont shoot her because she has Hera.
  • 9:54 PM pcnerd37 – the flight pods which im guessing is another word for viper are stopped as she spools up her FTL drive in the ship.
  • 9:54 PM pcnerd37 – She hits something going out of the ship and is damaged. She jumps so close to the ship that it does some severe damage to Galactica.

  • 9:55 PM pcnerd37 – The chief is trying to do damage control.
  • 9:55 PM pcnerd37 – The chief is now told that Boomer has Hera.
  • 9:56 PM pcnerd37 – Ellen and Tigh are sitting in the day care talking about some major conspiracy to get Hera.
  • 9:56 PM pcnerd37 – She says that maybe Sam can help them if he ever wakes up.
  • 9:56 PM pcnerd37 – Kara is laying with Sam
  • 9:56 PM pcnerd37 – The chief is wandering around the ship and then in the house projection.
  • 9:57 PM pcnerd37 – He goes into Hera’s room and crys.

  • 10:00 PM pcnerd37 – We see the ship falling apart next week with Adama saying he is stopping repairs while Tigh tries to stop him.
  • 10:01 PM pcnerd37 – This week was one of the best live blogs so far, largely do to the amount of participation. Thanks everybody!
  • 10:01 PM pcnerd37 – This was also the biggest in terms of views by far as well!
  • 10:02 PM pcnerd37 – If any of you are going to Starfest, make sure to let me know and we can all meet up for a burger or something at the hotel. They have the best burgers I have ever eaten without a doubt.
  • 10:03 PM pcnerd37 – Or you can just look for me there as I will likely be the one hitting on Katee Sackhoff.
  • 10:04 PM pcnerd37 – Anyway, thanks again to everybody who stopped in for tonight’s live blog. I look forward to next weeks show. Also, if you have suggestions for others shows for me to live blog, please let me know and I will consider it. Right now I am considering live blogging Heroes.

  • 10:05 PM Don Bagert – Think the piano player is Daniel?
  • 10:06 PM pcnerd37 – I would say its possible the piano player is Daniel but not likely as Ellen said Daniel was killed long ago.

    I look forward to your commentary. I’m not always super good at following the narrative. Almost time for the show to begin!

    He’s going to swap Boomers.

    The president is a bitch … how many times has she broken the rules for herself?

    If daniel is her father …..

  12. SypkeMFk3
    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:40:57

    Dude, I would swap boomers too …..

  13. Will Fletcher
    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:41:45

    How could you tell from the Sharon on the cot that they’d been swapped? I didn’t see the clue. (Though I predicted ahead of time he was swapping them.)

    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:42:21

    Who is the hottest chick in BSG? I would say Grace Park, no doubt.

    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:44:44

    I like them all, but ever since her first appearance I liked Boomer the best.

  18. SypkeMFk3
    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:45:16

    Do you think the Chief is an amoral character? Hes done some pretty bad things for boomer and bad choices in general.

  19. Will Fletcher
    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:45:52

    Thanks. I was looking for a gash or blood, but on this small TV I must have missed it.

    So no big reveal this week? …

  23. SypkeMFk3
    Feb 27, 2009 @ 20:57:37

    We should launch a line of T Shirts saying I slept with Kara Thrace … But who hasn’t, really?
