Maybe it’s just late, but listener/commenterThe 13th Cylon posted this comment (tongue-in-cheek) that had me rolling, so I thought I’d share for those who might have missed it under Audra’s “You Chose Wisely…” post:
“Well, if somewhere in the Book of Pithia it says “the Chosen One once danced naked with porno magazines in his parent’s prayer room,” then I’m going to think it’s the Chief. Until then, I won’t.
“It’s been like a bad game show so far as to who the Chosen One is: First we had Laura “The Airlock” Roslin for about 34 episodes, and then she became unchosen. Then we have the hybrid sounding like a stuck record player when she sees Baltar, so I don’t know what to think. Perhaps Racetrack is the dying leader. She’s the one who always finds things important. ‘Holy crap it’s New Caprica!’ ‘It’s a wounded basestar!’
“I’m almost certain she’s the One.”
makes you think if there’s truely a plan … for anyone, the cylons or Ronald Moore. The only one who seems to have a plan is Adama whose plan is to not have any plan at all. I was in chicago this weekend, and I downloaded it and watched it on the plane on the way home. I have to say my favorite moment is when Roslin asked what if they called Adama’s bluff, and Adama looked at her and asked her who was bluffing? As a member of the 13th tribe I wanna personally thank Adama for being willing to blow up his own son to save us from those fracken cylons.
If Adama doesn’t have a plan and the Cylons are trying to steal that plan, then I’d say everyone’s doing a great job.
And the “five lights of the apocolypse?” one battleSTAR and four baseSTARs. Get it? Lights! Stars…..
(I am a cylon).
Damn, I had read that comment, but missed the Racetrack bit. Very good (and given the way the writing crew works, it IS plausible…)
Arktis, LMAO. I can see Adama flipping a cubit while muttering, “Steal THIS plan you frakin’ toasters.”
Ha ha! Once again, this podcast and blog has made my day.
No sir Mr. 13th, you made my day! I know Chuck already said you rock but I nearly blew root beer out my nose when he read it to me this morning, great stuff. 😉
think…Adama holding a plan in one hand and pressing the big red buton that fires the nukes at the basestars saying “steak this you fraking bitch”
*Racetrack pokes her head into the Temple of 5 in full flight gear and helmet*
‘Holy Hera Chief! Look over there! Its the Eye of Jupiter! I know how it works too!’
‘How do you know Racetrack?;
‘I’m the Chosen One.’
‘Who told you that?’
‘The frakkin hybrid. Duh. Maybe later I’ll tell you all about the Cylon God, but I’m still reading the script.’
*Racetrack makes a hasty exit*
Awesome theory 13th!
I happened to see the episode where they find the sick ship today during the BSG marathon and I can’t help but think how she is the most important unimportant character. Do we ever see her when she isn’t in the middle of some extremely shocking discovery or event? She’s like what you guys where talking about during the podcast, whenever scripture pops up, you know there’s going to be a big thing going down, well whenever we see Racetrack we should all know that something’s about to go down.
What if Racetrack is the BSG equivalent of the Greek chorus? I get the feeling Tyrol is going to become the new religious (possibly dying?) leader and wouldn’t it be interesting if Racetrack is the first one to shout it out.
On a side note, of topic in the middle of an off topic reply: Wasn’t she also giving Hot Dog food and calling him ‘Baby’ in The Passage? Maybe they’ll create their own chorus heaven and have little chorus’ of their own. But they all look like Racetrack (hopefully). If Racetrack IS the default chorus, does it imply new possibilities for Hot Dog? Does anyone remember Hot Dog doing anything but getting his butt handed to him by Starbuck and managing to survive Cylon attacks? I’m going to stop now.
I SEE THE LIGHT the fat poses tyrol at risk of a heart attack DIEING
Well the Chosen One (not sure why I feel the need to capitalize that) could be different than the dying leader. And another thing I was thinking about was how perhaps the Hybrid was saying Cheif is the C.O. from a projection she was seeing. There’s so many little things like that (another for me is the Baltar as the father of a new race) which will eventually fall into place- kind of like how all the little things people had been pondering about for 30 years in the Star Wars community fell into place in the final 5 minutes of the Ep III.
that sounds right but who is the dying leader
the plan rocks lol-write a good show!
I came in season 2. I instantly hated religious nut zealot George W Rosilyn and thought the Gaius Secular Baltar was great. Too bad i never saw the first one to see theyd ruin me! But then I looked at Baltar as a redeemable Richard III. And he is. I still say he must be the chosen one. He can undo what hes done. And that a neat angle. Add in some guilt for Rosilyn and Tigh my two least fav and im happy as a clam! Well Ok peyton won the bowl so not as a clam but as a umm errr pig in .
oh an 13th—im not a scifi geek-really– well at least i HATE all things Star Trek save khan—but ever mentioning the travesties of 1-3 in SW is tech hitting below the belt. They, like Gweedo shooting first and a mistake called Jersey Girl, never happened.
