The Centurion Glass Ceiling

Allow me a flight of fancy for just a sec. Imagine yourself a fresh new graduate of Cylon basic training. In the 20 seconds that tick by between your basic processing and your new career assignment you find your hopeful, gear-clanking mind wandering to your awesome new purpose in life. Perhaps you’ll be a leader […]


I’ve noticed an interesting theme running through BSG – being trapped. It’s interesting how being trapped, held,or imprisoned -physically or psychologically -can affect people. Some physical examples we see- Sharon in the cell on Galactica, Six (Gina) in same cell, Roslin in the brig, Lee in the brig when Adama is shot. Helo stuck on […]

Anders: Just Too Good to Stay Alive

You’re Anders, you’ve just broken up with Starbuck and it’s your first day out in the fleet. This has got to be a different situation for the guy. No one is actively shooting at him. He’s a bright, honest guy that’s not afraid of hard work. He’s gotta die. There isn’t room for this guy […]

GWC GWC Podcast #13

“Torn” was a wild ride, finally addressing some of the questions we’ve all been asking for years, offering us insight in some areas — and just more questions in others. Highlights: We consider Baltar’s predicament, discuss Tigh’s future, muse about hybrids, speculate on Lee’s new rank,kid aboutLeoben’s “autumn” skin color, and sing you a variation […]

Podcast #13 Later Today!

Sorry for the delay! Don’t worry — we’re not disappearing. We simply delayed the recording of podcast #13 to make sure Audra could be here; She was out of pocket briefly. Man, it’s been tough waiting, though. Torn was an incredible episode — the one we’ve been waiting for in so many ways. We all […]

Call Me Starbuck

Thanks to the commentors for all the great info- especially for filling in the details I spaced on in the podcast about Abraham’s sons – Isaac and Ishmael. Now here’s an interesting one, if a bit of a long shot. The first line of Moby Dick is the famous “Call me Ishmael.” The first mate […]

D is for Downloaded

I want to take a lead from a comment posted by Chris on the comments page for podcast #12: In convincing Lee to abandon his father[Dualla] removes a central leader and a huge cadre of warriors in the death of New-Caprica. Leaving a fattened and weakened Lee to lead a civilian contingent. There’s room for […]

Awesome Comment Roundup

We’re always talking in the podcast about the kick-ass comments that our listeners post here at Damn, we’re lucky you take the time to send us all these great ideas! I thought I’d take a minute and run down some of my personal favorites from the ones posted (or emailed) in the last few […]

GWC GWC Podcast #12

“Collaborators” answered a number of our questions from last week and managed to further deepen the backgrounds of our favorite characters.  Highlights: Tom Zarek’s questionable motives and past, Tigh’s back-to-normal-but-not post-traumatic stress disorder, Baltar’s nude fainting couch appearance, and My Little Pony resurrection ships.

Humans: They Make Great Pets

Humans don’t make great pets — andneither did the Cylon. However if you were to ever to try and convince a human to feel a certain way when they started off dead set against it, Starbuck would be the last person you should pick. Still, it’s interesting that they Cylon seem to be fixated on […]

BSG Fans are Oracular!

I just gotta say, I’m impressed with the Oracle-like qualities of the BSG fans who post here at the Watercooler! I truly did not believe Ellen Tigh knew the drink was poisoned, but many people wrote in to say that her confession followed by “I could really use a drink” was enough foreshadowing for them. […]
