  • 6:35 PM pcnerd37 – And that is just to get things started!
  • 6:36 PM pcnerd37 – Before I get going, I would like to invite everybody to comment and ask questions during the show and I will do my best to answer them.
  • 6:37 PM pcnerd37 – Also, a first look at the new Stargate Universe show will be given during tonight’s show.
  • 6:38 PM pcnerd37 – I will be back in a minute as I have a couple of last minute things to do and then I will discuss how to win prizes tonight!
  • 6:44 PM pcnerd37 – Ok, I am back and we have 15 min until showtime!
  • 6:44 PM pcnerd37 – Now lets discuss prizes and how to win them!
  • 6:46 PM pcnerd37 – For every 100 views I have of the blog tonight, I will give away a prize. What is the prize you ask? That is up to you. You have 3 choices. It can either be a BSG seaon (or half season as the case may be) DVD set, a BSG t-shirt or a signed picture of Katee Sackhoff (Kara “Starbuck” Thrace).
  • 6:47 PM pcnerd37 – This is how you win the prize… You must leave a good comment on the live blog. They must be nice, constructive and respectful. “You suck!” Comments will not get you entered. When you comment, you must use a valid email so that I can e-mail you after the show about getting you your prize.
  • 6:48 PM pcnerd37 – You can only win once but the more you comment, the better your odds of winning.
  • 6:49 PM pcnerd37 – If you choose either the shirt or signed picture, they will not be shipped until around this time next month as I will be getting them from Starfest in Denver next month.
  • 6:50 PM pcnerd37 – 10 minutes to showtime!
  • 6:50 PM pcnerd37 – If you have any questions about the prizes, leave them in the comments and I will answer them.
  • 6:50 PM pcnerd37 – Oh, and you must live in the US to win. I don’t ship internationally
  • 6:51 PM pcnerd37 – Now, lets talk the Battlestar Galactica movie!
  • 6:51 PM pcnerd37 – At this time, the movie is called The Plan.
  • 6:51 PM pcnerd37 – According to IMDB it is set to be released in June.
  • 6:51 PM pcnerd37 – I don’t yet know if it will be direct to DVD or if it will air on Sci-fi.
  • 6:52 PM pcnerd37 – The purpose of it is to tie up any loose ends not tied up tonight.
  • 6:53 PM pcnerd37 – Oh, and one comment about Sci-fi. I think changing the name to SyFy is retarded and whoever came up with that idea should be fired and beaten by all of the Sci-fi fans.
  • 6:54 PM pcnerd37 – Anyway, if you would like to meet Katee Sackhoff, she will be at Starfest next month in Denver. As I understand it, she will be there on April 18th. I will be there as well so if you are going, drop me a line and we can meet up!
  • 6:55 PM pcnerd37 – yes, the new name of the Sci-Fi channel is going to be SyFy.
  • 6:55 PM pcnerd37 – It seems like there was more I was going to talk about but I forgot

  • 6:56 PM pcnerd37 – less than 5 minutes to showtime!
  • 6:56 PM pcnerd37 – Go pop some popcorn, fix yourself a drink and make that last bathroom run because its almost time for the finale of Battlestar Galactica!
  • 6:57 PM pcnerd37 – Oh, and I also noticed that tonights show is scheduled to go 11 min past the second hour so it is even longer than most people realize!
  • 6:58 PM pcnerd37 – My understanding is its not a prequel as it is meant to wrap up any loose ends but I am guessing we will have more of an idea after tonight.
  • 6:58 PM pcnerd37 – Caprica which is kind of a prequel will air I believe in the winter which is supposed to take place several decades before BSG
  • 6:59 PM pcnerd37 – Im going fill my drink and by the time I get back we should be good to go!

  • 7:04 PM pcnerd37 – Zach is there too.

  • 7:15 PM pcnerd37 – She is thanking the Doc for everything he has done for her over the years.

  • 7:29 PM pcnerd37 – All stations are ready including the cylons with Sam.
  • 7:29 PM pcnerd37 – Adama says this is the final mission for Galactica and that if they dont fail the ship, the ship wont fail them.

  • 7:43 PM pcnerd37 – We now see Caprica Six and Baltar cowing in the halls behind some containers waiting for some action. She says that she is finally proud of him.
  • 7:43 PM pcnerd37 – They kiss.
  • 7:44 PM pcnerd37 – WTF!
  • 7:44 PM pcnerd37 – We see another Baltar and the six in his head telling the two of them that they hold the future in their hands. They are both shocked that they can both see them!

  • 7:52 PM pcnerd37 – Again, I don’t ship internationally so to those not in the US, I am sorry.
  • 7:53 PM pcnerd37 – Since there are people in the UK watching this, if you want to watch it in the next couple of hours, I will point you toward Bittorrent. The show should be up a couple hours after its aired.

  • 8:06 PM pcnerd37 – Commercial.
  • 8:07 PM pcnerd37 – Caprica looks interesting to me. I am curious to see how it turns out. After seeing the first look earlier, I think I am going to like the new Stargate Universe as it is much darker than previous Stargate shows.
  • 8:07 PM pcnerd37 – I may not get the prize winner chosen until after the show but I will alert the prize winner via email.

  • 8:26 PM pcnerd37 – Lee says they can give them the best part of themselves to help them evolve.
  • 8:26 PM pcnerd37 – Apparently he wants them to live on through these tribal people.

  • 8:27 PM pcnerd37 – The sixes, 8’s and 2’s decided to stay to see how they can contribute. The centurions are going to take the base ship and go free.
  • 8:27 PM pcnerd37 – They have earned their freedom even if there is a risk that they will come back and wipe them out later.
  • 8:28 PM pcnerd37 – Sam will guide the entire fleet directly into the sun. This is the last stop for everybody.

  • 8:28 PM pcnerd37 – We now see Kara at Sam’s side.
  • 8:28 PM pcnerd37 – She pulls off her dog tags and puts them in the goo with Sam.
  • 8:29 PM pcnerd37 – She kisses him.

  • 8:30 PM pcnerd37 – Commercial.
  • 8:30 PM emcam – Here we go. Zeus, Athena are becoming Greek gods! I feared as much. This how the cycle repeats itself. Moore has just turned BSG into run of the mill scifi trash.
  • 8:30 PM emcam – This makes absolutely no sense, historically speaking…
  • 8:31 PM pcnerd37 – While we are on a commercial, I would like to take a quick break and ask you all to check out my Global Geek News Podcast. If you are into technology at all, you will love my podcast. You can find it at

  • 8:32 PM emcam – Oh, dear! How are humans going to develop exactly the same type of art, literature etc. from the remains of Galactica’s fleet. That had all made sense if the show were set in the far future. Now we are subjected to this Trekkie black/whole time travel nonsense!

  • 8:33 PM pcnerd37 – Away he goes!
  • 8:34 PM pcnerd37 – We now see a flashback of him being given a lie detector test.
  • 8:34 PM pcnerd37 – They ask him if he is a cylon which he says no. Apparently these are base questions to which he says enough of this crap and he says that no job is worth this.
  • 8:35 PM pcnerd37 – We see him leave galactica and fly around the fleet.
  • 8:35 PM pcnerd37 – He seems to mainly be flying around Galactica and now headed to Earth.
  • 8:35 PM pcnerd37 – We see Sam in his bath and a flashback from when he was in the bath talking to the reporter from last week.

  • 8:36 PM pcnerd37 – I never realized it until now, but one of the ships looks like a Vulcan ship.
  • 8:36 PM pcnerd37 – Back on earth, we see the Chief, Ellen and Tigh walking in a field talking.
  • 8:36 PM pcnerd37 – Apparently the chief is leaving them to be on his own.
  • 8:37 PM pcnerd37 – Tigh said if somebody did the same thing to Ellen, he would have done the same thing.

  • 8:38 PM pcnerd37 – She just wants them to be together.
  • 8:38 PM pcnerd37 – And down goes another shot.

  • 8:40 PM pcnerd37 – I hope that you will continue to check back in the future for the many things that I post. I would be honored if you added this blog to your RSS reader.
  • 8:40 PM pcnerd37 – Also, if you don’t already, please follow me on Twitter! I am pcnerd37 on Twitter.

  • 8:42 PM pcnerd37 – Leave your comments while you can if you hope to win a prize. I will end the contest 30 min after the show ends.
  • 8:42 PM pcnerd37 – We are back
  • 8:43 PM pcnerd37 – We see Roslin and Admaa looking with field glasses out on a bunch of animals that look like dear or something similar.

  • 8:43 PM pcnerd37 – Adama says that this is Earth because it is a dream they have been chasing for a long time.
  • 8:44 PM pcnerd37 – If this is earth, what was the last Earth they found which was the cylon colony?
  • 8:44 PM pcnerd37 – Apparently Adama plans to help her get a better look at the animals. He is carrying her into the field as Lee and Kara watch.
  • 8:45 PM pcnerd37 – So much for heading into the field, he is heading into a raptor.
  • 8:45 PM emcam – This was supposedly a time “without aliens and time travel”. Well, not so much. He just changed that…
  • 8:45 PM pcnerd37 – Adama and Lee hug.
  • 8:45 PM pcnerd37 – Adama says he doesnt have much time and Lee says he understands.
  • 8:46 PM pcnerd37 – Adama and Starbuck now hug.
  • 8:46 PM pcnerd37 – So I am getting a little curious as to how Kara is the harbinger of death…
  • 8:46 PM pcnerd37 – Roslin waves goodbye.
  • 8:46 PM emcam – show, I meant. And he is, of course, Moore…
  • 8:47 PM pcnerd37 – Adama lifts off and is taking her for one last right to see the animals and Earth.
  • 8:47 PM pcnerd37 – Lee talks about the earliest memory of his dad flying away and wondering when he would return. He says he isnt coming back this time. Kara says he isnt and she isnt either.
  • 8:47 PM pcnerd37 – He asks where she is going but she doesnt know. She just knows she has completed her journey and it feels good.
  • 8:48 PM pcnerd37 – We now see them back on Caprica drinking.
  • 8:48 PM pcnerd37 – Apparently they are about to go at it on the dining room table.
  • 8:49 PM pcnerd37 – She knocks a wine glass in the floor that breaks and wakes Zach but not enough for him to look up to see what is going on.
  • 8:49 PM pcnerd37 – They stop what they are doing and Lee says he better get going.
  • 8:49 PM pcnerd37 – I do want to say that it is a good thing I am live blogging this as normally when I am more involved in finale’s I will admit I do tend to cry a bit.
  • 8:50 PM pcnerd37 – Back on earth, she asks what he is going to do.
  • 8:50 PM pcnerd37 – She calls this the first day of the rest of his life.
  • 8:50 PM pcnerd37 – Apparently he wants to kick back, relax and do the least possible or at least that is what he thought he wanted to do but in reality all he wants to do is explore.
  • 8:51 PM pcnerd37 – Suddenly out of nowhere, she is gone.
  • 8:51 PM pcnerd37 – She has disappeared.
  • 8:51 PM pcnerd37 – He is standing in the field alone.
  • 8:51 PM pcnerd37 – He says goodbye and that she wont be forgotten.
  • 8:51 PM pcnerd37 – We now see him back on Caprica with a bird in his house that is apparently flying out his door.
  • 8:52 PM pcnerd37 – Still on Caprica, we see Roslin in a bathrobe with that Shawn in her bed.
  • 8:53 PM pcnerd37 – She says its been a lovely evening but that they wont be doing this again. She says it wasnt him that he is wonderful but he can show himself out.
  • 8:53 PM pcnerd37 – He climbs out of bed while she goes to get a cigarette.
  • 8:53 PM pcnerd37 – Out the door he goes.

  • 8:59 PM pcnerd37 – One more quick plug for Starfest. If you are going to be there, make sure to hit me up so we can hang out! If you want more info about starfest, you can find it at
  • 9:00 PM pcnerd37 – A commercial for The Plan!

  • 9:09 PM pcnerd37 – We just broke 300 viewers! That means I will be having 3 prize winners!
  • 9:09 PM emcam – Well, this WAS my favourite show, until this finale. I am terribly disappointed that it turned from nerve-wrecking action, great character studies, superb acting and intelligent and morally complex political commentary into sentimental and mythical kitsch. And yes, kitsch it is.
  • 9:09 PM pcnerd37 – I will announce the winners tomorrow in a blog post and contact them via email shortly after.
  • 9:10 PM pcnerd37 – I don’t feel like killing the live blog just yet so feel free to post some comments and we can all talk about the show.

  • 9:14 PM pcnerd37 – Again, a HUGE thanks to everybody who has been following the live blog tonight and over the past weeks. It has been a ton of fun and I wish it didn’t have to end. I WILL live blog The Plan when it comes out so when you hear an air date for it, make sure to be here!
  • 9:15 PM pcnerd37 – Please check back here often to find out other things that I am doing like live blogs, podcasts and much more. I am also going to start posting some really cool things to make sure to check back on occasion.
  • 9:17 PM pcnerd37 – This has been great fun. Have a great night everybody and thanks again! You all have been great! Don’t forget, if you have any suggestions for other shows for me to live blog, let me know! Right now the only show I am seriously considering is Heroes but it doesnt make much since since It has already aired on the east coast before I get to watch it.
  • 9:17 PM pcnerd37 – Good night everybody!
  • 9:17 PM pcnerd37 – So Say We All!

    About “The Plan” movie, I thought it was a prequel or something. No?

    11 minutes past 11pm? I have to flip over to Andy Griffith. Guess I won’t ever get to see the ending. Oh, well, I can just make something up.

    I know….SyFy? “The Plan” IS a prequel, I’m pretty sure. I’ve only started seeing it referred to by that name since yesterday – up til then I thought it was called “Caprica”…? Anyway, discovered your blog this afternoon, Pcnerd37. It looks like fun. As usual, though, I won’t get to actually watch the ep until tomorrow so I can’t stick around for fear of all the spoilage. Have fun!

    Dude, commercial breaks suck. Can’t tell you how tense it is over here. Proper edge of the seat stuff. Thanks again!

    Good episode so far. Sad this is the end. :\ At least we have the movie to look forward to. What do you guys think of Caprica?

    Mar 20, 2009 @ 19:20:16

    Very good, why must this be the end. Caprica looks somewhat interesting but I’m not thrilled.

    Should be studying for a midterm. Can’t watch it live cause I’m moving next week and have already turned off my cable. Thank you for liveblogging this! I still can’t believe this takes place in our past – if I think logically about it too much it makes me want to cry. 🙁

    I admire this ending for its creative direction, but I didn’t like it. It seems utterly senseless that they would give up technology. I didn’t understand why Adama decided to live off alone either.

    Too sentimental. I would have liked to see them rebuild their society rather then turn into hunter-gatherers.

    Thanks for another great job of live blogging! Fantastic job.

    Sorry I had to bail for a while. I actually fell asleep and had to wait a week to see the ending.

    Great episode! Thanks for the live blogging and great insights into the program.

    I am happy you enjoyed it. I wish it didn’t have to end. On the bright side, likely later tonight, I will be posting a really cool Battlestar Galactica tribute made out of legos! It really is a must see!

    You live blogging Heroes tonight?

    If so….. fifteen minutes until go time!!

  21. pcnerd37
    Mar 30, 2009 @ 17:56:21

    No, I am not doing it tonight. I would like to, but considering it doesnt air for another hour for me and the east coast would have already seen the show, its kind of pointless.
