This week we cover Razor Flashback #2, the current rewatch episode The Captain’s Hand, and (as always) lots, lots more. Highlights: We discuss the flashbacks vs. the pre-season-three webisodes and their classification as “episodes” (and therefore spoilers), enjoy seeing a Viper in a whatever-isode, question the heritage of young Adama’s blue eyes, wonder what derogatory term “toasters” call humans when we’re not around, debate the existance of non-combatant Cylons, disagree with the ever-popular “Battlestar Iraqtica” moniker, hypothesize that Roslin’s “don’t interfere with the birth of a child” order might outlaw contraceptives as well, lament Adama’s instant willingness to muck about in civilian affairs, issue a less-rant-more-sense follow up on our Starship Troopers bash in response to a caller, talk Klingon western shirts and the safety of DS9 promenade merchants, and veer off topic to Firefly, Casino Royale, and the Queen’s love of Daniel Craig. Note: Next week’s podcast will post on Tuesday instead of Sunday because of scheduling constraints.
Hey guys, don’t know if you’ve seen this yet, but here are a bunch of scenes from season 4:
Regarding the very-blue eyes we see on young Adama in the Razor flashbacks…
Edward James Olmos has brown eyes, but wears blue contacts on BSG so Adama’s eyes will match Lee’s.

Re: Roslyn and campaigning for the first time – don’t forget, Roslyn might not have even need to campaign for her job as Secretary of Education, she was having an affair with the man who was President of the Colonies, if that affair had been going on from before the time he was Pres, it probably wouldn’t have hurt her chances for the position.
