Where do they get the Tobacco?

I’ve been wondering, where is everyone on BSG getting their cigarettes and cigars? You can make a still and produce your own alcohol, but tobacco? I assume a lot of them were lying around from before the Cylon attack on the colonies, and perhaps people in the fleet were carrying loads of them to sell. […]

Division Amongst The Ranks

After viewing the latest Webisode I can honestly say that I would have called it wrong. Duck seemed to react pretty bad after the Chief told him that there were weapons at the temple. I am not sure ifhe will be very receptive to fighting now that it has cost him his wife. Upon reflection […]

Helo, the Gentleman

Here’s a brain-spinner: in Greek, the phrase Kalos Kai Agathos, or its shortened form, Kalos K’Agathos, means essentially “gentleman.” Kalos means “beautiful,” Kai means “and,” and Agathos means “good.” Beautiful and good = gentleman. Sound familiar? I couldn’t help but notice this seems very close to “Karl C. Agathon,” our BSG Lt. Helo. Perhaps this […]

Big Brother-Bot is Watching

I’m unsettled by what seems to be a growingcomplacency among the people on New Caprica. The members of the fledgling Resistance are an exception, I think, not the rule. In the first webisode, we see posters aimed at recruiting people into the Cylon-controlled police force, and Jammer tears it down in disgust, claiming that anyone […]

BSG’s creators and writers have wisely avoided getting drawn down into the technobabble trap, instead following a path paved with strong, deep characters and human tragedy/triumph. It’s paying off. Apparently Zack Exley — of MoveOn fame […]

Will the Phoenix rise again?

In the episode “Flight of the Phoenix” Chief Tyrol gets the creative itch to build a ship. I consider it to be one of the best episodes of the entire canon. There are a bunch more action packed and a few more sexy episodes, but this one of the character building stories for the Chief. […]

Fat Lee? (Or, Apollo gets gaDUNKadunk)

And God said “be fruitful and multiply.” Well, Apollo hasn’t been fruitful in the show (yet), but he seems to have multiplied. Don’t get me wrong–he still looks good, but D, you gotta take charge and help this man become fruitful. That is, make him eat fruit. Not donuts. Since Jamie Bamber took us through […]
