Per your request, here’s a post for pre-podcast discussion of tonight’s new episode, “Taking a Break…” If you’re not already attending — or hosting! — a Frak Party, join us here for the GWC online ‘party. Or hell, even if you’re watching with friends, post their comments, too! There’s room for everyone, though you’ll have to bring your own snacks.
We’ll give this a check before we start the podcast after the show tonight, too.
Here’s hoping for a Baltar-heavy episode. I want to see his trial getting full attention, and maybe some Caprica Six interaction with Baltar – if the one now on board Galactica is indeed the same one that was Baltar’s lover.
Will he try to sell her out to save his own skin?
a.) Yes, shamelessly
b.) He’ll admit the truth about him and Caprica Six and what happened in order to do the right thing before he is executed.
c.) No. He’ll try to weasel them both out of it.
im gonna wake up at 5 to watch it before school woohoo
RDM’s commentary is already out…
I was looking for this last week! ^_^
I just saw a comercial during dresden, man this looks like a killer ep, can’t wait!
Craaaaaap. I’ve got to get it off iTunes now. Hopefully it’ll be up more promptly than last time, otherwise I’ll see y’all Tuesdayish…
Man I knew they were going to pull a bait and switch! Bastards…*is the commercial done yet?*
Looks like my kinda bar!
Whoa, creepy lullabye. Sounds like Chief and Callie singing. Baltar opening
his eyes with the goo on them made me cringe, I couldn’t do that.
Screw Hillary, I want Roslin on ’08! LOL! An airlock in every home!
The Lady is Pissed
Is it me or is this love quadrangle sub story really slowing down the baltar story?
Ok who votes for throwing Gaeta out the airlock? Hands, anyone? Frakking idiot!
Oh, just break out the can of cheese balls, Apollo, ya weenie.
DAMN! What a killer episode! Dare I say as good as “33”?
But what’s with the bad campy music for commercial breaks?
That was intense stuff! I was worried it was going to be lame “shipper” garbage that keeps the story in park, but it was great stuff. Adama was layin’ the smackdown, Roslin scared the crap out of me when she was on her screaming tirade, and Tigh and the good Doc were full of their typical great one liners. That episode was a perfect 10!
And glad to get confirmation for all the non-believers that Gaius isn’t a Cylon. It would make no sense for him to be necessary for the Cylons in the miniseries and so on if he was a Cylon to begin with.
Dee was good. I’m liking her more and more, lately.
Chief and Callie fighting? I’m probably in the minority here, but
while the luminous Callie was always clearly smitten with Chief, I
never really saw more than a protective, comradely feeling from
Chief to Callie. Nothing like the passion he had with Boomer. I
sense a Chief-centric episode in our future (hoo-yah). I think the
getting married, having a baby thing was Chief feeling guilty about
beating her up and trying to make it up to her. He seems more
like an older brother to her, to me.
I loved the bit at the end with Adama and Laura. The intimacy of
the setting, the touch of the hand. I love what Laura said about
Baltar, him being one of ‘us’, even with all his flaws. Way to
go, babe. None of you are pristine saints and it’s good to recognize that.
Anders was almost too good to be true.
And Lee? Dork-boy? Just a clue. After professing your ‘love’ to
current wifey-poo and groveling to get her back, quite throwing
puppy-dog looks over at Starbuck. Jus’ sayin’.
Oh, and one of the flash-backs that Baltar had of the Opera House clearly
showed eight panels, so I officially no longer care about panel count, it’s
Gaeta (sp?) just went up on my list of cylon possibles, though, it may be
too obvious that they want us to think that.
did you guys watch the bonus scene on scifi.com? the site is taking a little while to load but its worth it.
Grrr. I wish they would quit beating around the bush with the quadrangle relationship stuff.
This was one of the…. freakiest episodes we’ve had in a while. How crazy was that drug interrogation sequence!! I think the best method of accomplishing a solid heart-to-heart with Baltar is getting the poor guy a psychiatrist…
This episode was better than last weeks…Last week was ok but it was missing something. This one got back to some real intense drama which I missed. I’m a but upset that this quadrangle is not fully resolved. I think you guys might be right, someone or at least 2 people are going to have to die in this thing. I’m worried it might be someone that I don’t want to see go (right now I’m not talking about Lee^_^)
The whole subplot with Baltar was facinating…It’s amazing that with all that he’s done and all he’s been a part of he still thinks of himself as the victim. He is simply astounding.
OOOOO! The Beginning. Head Six Swedish Spa: complete with goo facial, sharp as hell sea sponges, and crappy service.
HD tv, again
Chase – cause credit cards are good
Lectric Shave – Baltar can use some
Scifi and Enterprise
The Hollow – Where’s Johnny Depp
OOO! Bonus scene!
Oh Frak! Baltar is Fraked!!! And he still doesn’t think he’s responsible. Talk about suspension of disbelief.
Yikes, folks. Abu Ghraib in Space.
(The episode isn’t over on the West Coast yet. I just watched Cottle put his foot down. Thank God.)
Dee is so going to die. I feel kind of bad for her actually. It was weird how Lee seemed to freak out when Dee is leaving him, but still kind of want Kara? It sounds like they’ve wrapped it up as much as they want to for now. I don’t think its over but they want us to think it is. They’re staying with the respective others for good now. Right? Right? um.
This was a good one. I was very intrigued by the whole Gaeta’s got a secret thing. What did Baltar whisper in his ear? It certainly jumps Gaeta way up in the Cylon line. But. Then again. It may just be a play. Ugh. Well, work in the morning because its frakkin sunday. Off to bed.
Yea! Shiny did the commercials!
Argh…it’s not up on iTunes yet!!!! And it’s not up on scifi.com yet!!!! (Imagine me gasping for air dramatically.) 🙂
Nice, Shiny. Almost makes me wish there were commercials on the iTunes version.
About to listen to the podcast; haven’t watched the episode yet…
And seeing as I haven’t watched in yet…
In response to Arktis’ post, c.
