MiscSo, finally BSG returns.

And somehow, they fail to disappoint. So as of this writing I’ve only watched it once – on my linux computer at hulu.com. Which may be a nerd hat trick, but that’s a total sidebar. However, for those of you who haven’t seen the episode…here there be spoilers.

The holy shit moment number one (sorta): Starbuck finding herself in the cockpit of a thrashed Viper on Earth. Someone needs to explain that one, and I’m not sure how they’re going to do it without breaking the spacetime continuum.
The holy shit moment number two (for real): Dualla killing herself. It was unbelievably unexpected, and the aftereffects brought a seriously poignant moment from Captain Adama. One other thing that was noted was that she was humming a version of the Final Five “theme song” (All Along the Watchtower) right before she did it. the Xena-cylon I think explained it best toward the end of the episode, unintentionally – “It’s just going to happen again and again…I’m getting off this merry-go-round”.
Holy shit moment number three (The writers don’t know when to stop, do they?): Ellen Tigh as the last of the Five. Seriously, one of the interesting things about this whole thing is that they may have to ressurect Ellen, or that they’re going to hose up a prophecy because they killed her.

Meanwhile, Lee is a seriously wussified rudderless ship. It’s almost a tragedy, and I personally wonder who Lee’s mother was fooling around with, because no son of the Admiral could be that limp of character.
