Meat Processors (or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Cylons)

There’s nothing at all wrong with the fact that we’ve all been totally geeking out over the last week or two, just breathing in the sweet air of sci-fi battle goodness. We could talk for an hour about the Galactica’s incredible arrival in Exodus, Pt. 2 — not to mention Pegasus’ save-the-dayjump— but…Wait. We did […]

What of Tom Zarek?

We didn’t get a chance to spend nearly as much time on this in the last podcast as I’d have hoped, so I suspect it’ll pop up next time as well — but I couldn’t wait that long. What’s going to come of Tom Zarek? I’ve always liked Tom more than I could really justify […]

GWC GWC Podcast #11

You’ll have to excuse us for geeking out a bit on Exodus, Pt. 2 — one of Galactica’s best episodes to date.  We promise to return to our normal full-on predictions and speculation next time!  Highlights: Tigh’s sacrifice, Baltar’s almost-but-not-quite martyrdom, Starbuck’s mindfrack, and the coolest moment in on-screen sci-fi since the Millenium Falcon arrived […]

What Would Tigh Do?

Great stuff from Exodus Part 2. I must say that they took a few twists that I didn’t expect. I was dead wrong about Ellen living but they handled it very well. I wonder how Saul will fit into things as the show progresses. I feel that he will still serve in duties aboard the […]

Elegy for Ellen Tigh

Poor, poor Ellen’s fall; Wife of Saul, lover of all. Will tainted be her beauty fromloathesome skinjob VD? What will say Colonel Tigh If his wife’s condemned to die? Will he poke out another eye? Or save her from the Cy- lons? If Ellen ends up dead, Who’ll give Cavil head? Alone he’ll off to […]

A Pithy Oracle…

The appearance of the Oracle in recent BSG episodes sparked a lot of interesting speculation in podcast #10, and I realized I didn’t know much about the origins of the Oracle in Greek mythology (which seems to be the basis for a lot of the colonial religion in BSG). The following is from the definition […]

GWC GWC Podcast #10

There sure wasn’t much leaving going on in “Exodus, Pt. 1” tonight, was there?  Highlights: Speculation on Ellen’s fate as betrayer, the purpose and significance of the “oracle,” the possible outcome of D’Anna’s “crisis of faith,” Gaeta’s existance as free thinker vs. collaborator, and a mentalimage of Scar waking up in the goo.  How would […]

Adama’s Stand, Worthy of Shakespeare

The last episode was simply a good story, very moving and sincere. Upon reflection – okay upon watching it again, my favorite part I think is the speech that Adama gives the crew right before they are to go into battle. His words “served with such men and women” and talk about honor and the […]

GWC GWC Podcast #9

We’ve been receiving so many great comments via email, the blog, and the phone that we decided to sit down for an interim “comment-only” ‘cast.  Highlights: lessons learned from the “Cylon caucus” in Colonial One, the Cylon’s exponentially-rapid cultural development, and back-glowing orgasms as fiber-op transcievers (don’t ask).  If this is your first visit to […]

The Adolescence of Sentience

Isn’t it interesting that after the little speech about the first act of Cylon on Cylon violence that we see an act of the same kind of violence from an Aaron by shooting Caprica Six in the head? Taking that a bit further I wonder if since they know that they will be returned to […]

Shooting A Fellow Cylon In The Head: A Slap in The Face?

As Audra mentions in her Cylon-on-Cylon Violence post below, it was a bit shocking to see Caprica Six get shot in the head — and it did sort of chafe a bit on No. 3’s noting of Caprica Six’s rock-to-her-head as the first Cylon-on-Cylon violence. Have the Cylon really gone from “do no harm (to […]

Analogy vs. Allegory

By writing this, I’m risking (again) becoming the target of numerous “keep your personal politics out of your podcast” emails, so if you’re firing up your mailer right now, hold on a second or two and read this post at least twice first. Agreed? OK — here goes… Encarta defines allegory as “a work in […]
