Latest GWC Content

Ellen Tigh is Incredible…

…in her ability to absolutely frak up everything and everyone she gets near. In the episode “Sacrifice,” (which was the most recent in our marathon to refresh our memories for Season 3), Ellen, apparently along with half of Galactica’s crew, is in the lounge on Cloud Nine. She’ssipping a cocktail and flirting with Lee Adama. […]

What’s coming up in the next webisode?

One of the things I really love about BSG is the way it renders the world in shades of gray — leaving most of its TV sci-fi competition looking like 8-bit black & white graphics on an Apple II. It’s those shades of graythat lead me to believe that the Cylonsare changing their tactics in […]

The Rules of Engagement

In response to Sean’s post: “Are Cylons More Human than Human?” It’s obviously true that the Cylons have shown no compassion, restraint, or respect for human rules of war when fighting humans. I’m not sure the Cylons have no rules of war- that is, they probably have rules that say they shouldn’t destroy their own […]

Where’d we get the music in the podcast intro?

I just wanted to mention in passing that we actually created the little “blip” of music you hear at the beginning of the podcast ourselves. A couple of people who’ve heard the podcast have mistakenthe introfor music taken from the show, but it’s actually Audra on her drum kit (and a guitar, briefly) and a […]

Are the Cylons More Human Than Human?

Today in the Podcast we came across an interesting topic. What are the limits in the war? Though I think Chuck will vehemently disagree with me on this, I am pro “kick cylon tail” by whatever means available. I don’t think mass attempted genocide with the follow-up of robbing reproductive organs of human women and […]

GWC GWC Podcast #2

We just watched webisode 6 as well as the extremely cool new season 3 trailer, and as usual we have a lot to say about it.  Highlights: Audra’s theory about Helo’s name (and how it might signal his future in BSG), a great discussion about the future of the resistance on New Caprica, and lots of […]

Season 2.5 DVDs / New Podcast Shortly

I just got back a bit ago from picking up my copy of the season 2.5 DVDs that released today. It appears that they’ve included lots of extras, which I can’t wait to check out. On a sort of “housekeeping” note, we recorded a great podcast today that’ll post shortly. It’s a bit more, well, […]

Where do they get the Tobacco?

I’ve been wondering, where is everyone on BSG getting their cigarettes and cigars? You can make a still and produce your own alcohol, but tobacco? I assume a lot of them were lying around from before the Cylon attack on the colonies, and perhaps people in the fleet were carrying loads of them to sell. […]

Division Amongst The Ranks

After viewing the latest Webisode I can honestly say that I would have called it wrong. Duck seemed to react pretty bad after the Chief told him that there were weapons at the temple. I am not sure ifhe will be very receptive to fighting now that it has cost him his wife. Upon reflection […]

Helo, the Gentleman

Here’s a brain-spinner: in Greek, the phrase Kalos Kai Agathos, or its shortened form, Kalos K’Agathos, means essentially “gentleman.” Kalos means “beautiful,” Kai means “and,” and Agathos means “good.” Beautiful and good = gentleman. Sound familiar? I couldn’t help but notice this seems very close to “Karl C. Agathon,” our BSG Lt. Helo. Perhaps this […]

Big Brother-Bot is Watching

I’m unsettled by what seems to be a growingcomplacency among the people on New Caprica. The members of the fledgling Resistance are an exception, I think, not the rule. In the first webisode, we see posters aimed at recruiting people into the Cylon-controlled police force, and Jammer tears it down in disgust, claiming that anyone […]

Galactica Party-Planner:

Have you noticed how many of your generally-non-sci-fi-geek friends are into Battlestar Galactica in a big way? I have. BSG’s creators and writers have wisely avoided getting drawn down into the technobabble trap, instead following a path paved with strong, deep characters and human tragedy/triumph. It’s paying off. Apparently Zack Exley — of MoveOn fame […]
