Production Design in BSG

TV shows and movies are some of the few entirely collaborative arts. It’s just not possible for one person to create such awork alone, so when I see brilliant show like Galactica, I know that I’m not just witnessing one great idea — I’m seeing hundreds of great ideas from dozens of people andsome inspiring […]

All of this has happened before. All of this will happen again.

Here’s a question to ponder: Can any sentient race exist without war? Even though that’s one of the “unanswerables” that keeps humanities scholars busy, I’d suspect we all have an opinion, even if we do (in the immortal — though not the most famous — words of Neil Armstrong when challenged by NASA brassregarding his […]

Kara Thrace, Warrior Painter

Does the name Kara Thrace have any significant meaning? It might if you’re interested in ancient Greek history (as apparently the BSG writers are). Thrace is an area in Eastern Europe that spreads across parts of Greece, Bulgaria, and Turkey. Ancient Thrace, settled around 500 B.C.,also included parts of modern Serbia and Macedonia. The indegenous […]

GWC GWC Podcast #3

Webisode7 came out today, and as short as it was it still left us with some big questions to answer. Highlights: Rounded chairs and red drinks, questioning the destiny of Cylon sentience, lots and lots of theories regarding “Starbuck’s baby,” and a new “glowing back” theory.

BSG and Gender Equality: Beyond the Bathrooms

As we were watching the episode “Scar” in our marathon-to-prepare-for-Season-3 the other night, it struck me that it’s really cool that the two “heavy hitters” amongGalactica’s Viper pilots are women, and that the central drama of the episode dealt with the power struggle between Starbuck and Kat. Of course, they’re under Lee’s (the CAG) command, […]

Where’s the Fleet?

I realize I should go back and watch the last few episodes again and again (just got the 2.5 DVD set…it rocks!) till I find out where they are but, where are all the ships from the fleet? Did they strip them for parts and ground them permanently on the planet to live in or […]

The Fairer Sex

While reviewing some older episodes the other day I madean observation. All the cylon females are smoking hot and all the cylon males are, well, kinda geeky looking (except Brother Cavil who is just cool and doesn’t count). Is this a cylon observation of the human race? Did they think looks were more important for […]

Starbuck’s “Special Purpose”

OK, I couldn’t resist a little poke at The Jerk. Forgive me my strange sense of humor. Seriously, though, as Audra mentioned below, Leoben is the cylon Starbuck “waterboarded” back in the season one eposode Flesh and Bone. As usual I’m having trouble remembering Leoben’s exact phrase, but he essentially toldKara that she would play […]

Season Three Trailer

Last night I saw the trailer for Season 3 again, but this time I noticed a few new shots – and one looked like Starbuck and Lee looking at each other pretty close up and pretty intensely. Their faces were almost touching. I wonder if Anders knows about this. Starbuck’s got a good thing going […]

Starbuck’s Mini-Me?

In one of the trailers for Season 3, we see Leoben Conoy (the Cylon who Starbuck had tortured in the Season 1 episode “Flesh and Bone) holding a little blonde-haired girl and telling her, “This is Kara, your mother.” Leoben’s wearing a colonial uniform and holding the child as if it is his own, and […]

Sharon vs. Boomer

In Grace Park Q&A Part 1 — which can be found in the video/features section of the SciFi website — Ms. Park answers some questions from fans. When one fan refers to “G-Boomer” and “C-Boomer,” she interprets that to mean “Galactica Boomer” and “Cylon Boomer.” I’d guess the fan really meant “Caprica Boomer,” but what […]

Tom is planetside, may the gods help them.

In confusion there is profit. Where there’s profit, there is Tom Zarek. While re-watching the season three trailer today I was doing my normal freeze framing and caught a glimpse of Zarek on the planet standing in a small group with the Laura Roslin. I had a hunch that Zarek would be where he feels […]
