Just watched it... I was largely disappointed by the ep, till the last 10 minutes of it. There were some good spots here and there though.

Just watched it and I don't think the Final Five are "fundamentally different" After all, Tory killed Cally.

I will admit, I cried.

I haven't seen it yet (caveman watches it on his TV) but I'm really looking forward to it. Cylon civil war baby!

Please, no one tell me anything.

I live about 30 miles east of St. Louis, MO and we had a 5.4 earthquake.

If you want to read about it here.

My fiance slept right through it even when I told her it was an earthquake.

Zipper's profile says Mascoutah, IL. His Facebook A/C says St. Louis. So he's somewhere in that region.

According to the USGS:

Magnitude 5.2
Friday, April 18, 2008 at 04:37:00 AM at epicenter
Location 38.450°N, 87.890°W
Depth 11.6 km (7.2 miles) set by location program
Region ILLINOIS
Distances
7 km (5 miles) NNE (13°) from Bellmont, IL
9 km (6 miles) E (88°) from Bone Gap, IL
11 km (7 miles) N (350°) from Keensburg, IL
60 km (38 miles) NNW (331°) from Evansville, IN
206 km (128 miles) E (95°) from St. Louis, MO

Can you say "New Madrid Fault" ?

Stay safe all members in the region.

I live in Mascoutah but most people wouldn't know where that is but I put St. Louis on my Facebook as people can find that on a map.

Back to the ep:

I don't know what I found more offensive: Cally getting airlocked just as her character started getting some depth to her, or the fact Cally got airlocked in the first place.

Nasty development of Tory though. Almost worth sitting through this plodding mess. Wonder how Galen is going to take it when he finds out/figures out it was her that killed his wife.

The toasters seem to be doing plenty of that to themselves.

Not sure I like the Cavil/Boomer smooch.

Oh WOW what the Frak! All I could come up with when seeing this episode.

Starbuck not so sure of where the path to Earth is after fighting SO hard to get the chance to find it. What is up with that?

Cally wasn't one of my favorite characters in the show but Nicki Clyne did do a great job of playing a whiney immature deckhand who had a crush on her Chief.

This epiosde is probably at the bottom of my list in this series for the most part due to just too much BS.

-Kara and her moodiness and her seemingly inept ability to find her way again and her going crazy.
-TOO much baby crying! I felt it was Babystar Galactica. I just want to know who the Frak was pinching that baby! Had to hit the mute button on this episode at times.
-Ok now Lee is part of the Quorum of the Twelve. Oh great now this show is going to focus more on the political aspect and just in time for the elections. Not like we in the US hear enough about the political BS on either side of the vote.
-Why can't 14 people in a small room be Fraking quiet and discuss issues and not ALL have to talk at once. Sheesh!
-Why is it that the use of the Demetrius SUCH a concern for people in the fleet??? That doesn't make too much sense.
-Now we are seeing how truely ruthless the Cylons are. They are killing themselves. Damn!
-What the Frak? Boomer kissing Cavil?? Maybe she knows "the swirl"?
-Oh there is going to be some more ruthless acts caused by Tory in her quest for her Cylon awakening.
-Nice to see Zarek again but he seems too much like the Zarek of Bastille Day.
-I still hate that Lee gave up his wings.
-Cally was just plain nuts in this episode. I would have pushed the button too.(well not really but sure thought about it)

I just think that this was a very rushed episode and wasn't up to BSG. There was almost too much material and they had to cut it down. I am sure there is going to be quite a few deleted scenes to this episode on the DVD release or maybe even an extended verison. This made Unfinished Business look good.

I am sure it will get better then this. It is all just a ride.

Oh and sorry for the OT Earthquake stuff...

Why did they kill off Cally! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I want some cold blooded revenge on Tory. She just wants the Chief to herself!

And get Lee back in the cockpit, he doesn't suit being a civilian.

Was it just me, it did Tory's entire demeanor change when she took Nikki from Cally? To that point I honestly thought she was going to walk them both out of there.

Perhaps yet another 'switch' has been flipped in her when she held the second Human-Cylon child.

I don't want to go too far out on a limb here, but what if its the purpose of these four to (a) protect such children and (cool.gif protect Starbuck? The Chief's pulling the absentee bit could be interpreted as him, ineptly, trying to protect his wife and child from himself, while Anders is of course grafted to Starbuck's side (plus it has to be a fair bet Hera is with her parents, so he's close to her as well). Tigh provides some degree of leadership to the rest while Tory is in a position to observe all of them and make sure no one screws up.

If this is all part of the Great Cylon Plan, its pretty frakking in-depth. Maybe it really was ordained by God.
