    Good thinking. I hope you don’t even talk about the repeat episode next week.

    If you need to get something to eat, now would be a good time to do it. The first segment is one of the longest. Seems like more frequent and lengthier commercial interruptions in the second half of the show.

    Looking like a great episode.

    That explains why she was smoking pot last week. She has bad memories of alcohol.

    This is where she sees the 6 cyclon

    Two points: That last exchange foreshadows that the vipers will be launched from BSG once more. “save then for last” — only reason to talk about that is to set up audience for later.

    The first 15 minutes are commercial free. From here on out, especially in last 30 minutes, there will be many commercial breaks.

    I am going to try to buy that blue top Kara Thrace wore tonight on eBay.

    Not much action in last couple of segments.

    Mar 13, 2009 @ 19:46:16

    Almost commercial time again. This episode is kind of dragging.

  10. Will Fletcher
    Mar 13, 2009 @ 19:47:08

    The first 15 minutes is commercial free, then it’s 3 mins commercials, 7 minutes BSG.

    Mar 13, 2009 @ 19:48:57

    I agree. After the first segment, I thought it was going to be spectacular. With cool flashback stuff to Caprica. Then, like you said, it’s seemed mostly like filler.

  12. Will Fletcher
    Mar 13, 2009 @ 19:57:54

    Now THAT was a good segment!

    You return! I’m kind of surprised. Its good to have you back, with or without proof of who you really are.

    Special two-hour grand finale tonight!

    Don’t forget it starts an hour earlier. I believe there is also a special during the hour preceding that, so there is a full night of action.

  19. pcnerd37
    Mar 20, 2009 @ 15:22:57

    There has been a marathon running all day. The hour before I believe is the same episode as last week as well as the hour after. There has been a special running a couple of nights this week that has been quite good. I expect it to probably end up as a DVD extra on the next DVD set.

    Assuming dinner doesnt get into the way, I will be starting 30 min early as usual. I will put up a post in a few minutes talking about what is going on tonight.

    Gawd, I wish I could stick around here tonight but I can’t actually watch the ep til tomorrow so I’m trying to avoid too many spoilers. Here’s hoping they manage to explain not just all of the riddles that have been left open-ended up to now but also that whole black hole/singularity without going too far over the top.

    Enjoy, folks!
