GWC GWC Podcast #5

Webisode nine was painfully short, but we can’t help but question the fate of Jammer. Highlights: our predictions for webisode ten and how the webisodes will fit into season three, Laura Roslin’s responsibility for the current mess the colonies face, and a Top Gun reference you may not have considered. Just three more days ’till […]

Junkie In Need Of A Fix!

Welp, I’m just going to come out and say it. I want some boom! Space action is what I crave. Vipers and raiders locked in mortal combat and some cool frack’n flying from the best both sides have to offer. Throw in some big guns from Basestars and Battlestars and that would be even better. […]

We Are the Worlds

I’ve noticed that people who appear to be from certain ethnic backgrounds on BSG tend to be from the same original colonial planets, and I can’t help but be fascinated by the relationship between ethnicity in the show and in real life. For instance, I think every character we’ve seen from Geminon is played by […]

Kill ‘Em All — We’ll Make More

I spend a lot of time here at GWC pointing out how similar the Cylons are to humans in terms of their capacity to think — and therefore their capacity to possibly (in some far, theoretical future) make peace with humans. But, as I’ve said before, that’s not going to happen any time soon — […]

Good Will Always Triumph…

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. Martin Luther King, Jr., accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 In digging up the quote by Dr. King I was trying to recall in our fourth podcast (see […]

Religious Tolerance in the World of BSG

There’s beena lot of talk about the creating and casting of strong female characters in BSG, but that’s not the only area where BSG has broken from the past to some extent. Though religion plays a very important role in the show, not all the main characters are religious — and the other characters in […]

Answers To A Few Questions

Just a couple of quick things, the answers to a few of the questions we have been shooting back and forth for a bit. I reviewed some of season 2.5 for guidance earlier last night. The first question was how many people are on the planet? The answer is 39,579. Leaving the rest, somewhere in […]

GWC GWC Podcast #4

Though we start out talking about webisode eight, this ‘cast quickly moves into lots of new territory. Highlights: Speculation on the disposition of the fleet,genetic diversity among Cylons, and the gray areas of “collaboration” (and the new depth it’ll bring to Galactica in season three).

Head Games, Not Just For Humans Anymore

While skimming through a bit of season 2.0 I stopped at the scenes where Six and Boomer wake up in the pod-of-goo. I was struck by two things. The first was how much connection both of them upon waking up had with their former lives. They seemed to be very concerned with what (to them […]

Cylons vs. Pod People – Who wants to be a human-heir?

I just watched Invasion of the Body Snatchers for the first time the other night (I know, I know) and it was awesome. As you might guess, I was intrigued by how many common themes the movie shares with BSG, especially when they discover the pod people Look Like Us Now. A really weird scene […]

The Return of Laura Roslin

Laura Roslin has already had one miraculous return from near-oblivion; it’s time she returns to a leadership role in the Resistance and gets back to leading humanity to its destiny. Down on New Caprica, we know she’s gone back to teaching school – a noble profession even for former presidents. But surely she’s not going […]

Three Meals Away from Anarchy

We’ll have another podcast out to you tomorrow with lots of discussion about webisode eight, but I couldn’t wait to weigh in with a few thoughts. First and foremost: What? Aaron’s sorry that they killed 10-or-so “innocent” humans in the temple? If he’s sorry about that “tragedy” he must be downright apologetic about murdering 20 […]
