Interviews with Mary McDonnell, Edward James Olmos and Ron Moore in Entertainment Weekly. (http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20015932,00.html)
I wanted to come into [the present day], find Earth, cruise on top of it, see it for what it is, and as we're coming down to it, we're blown up, we're nuked. And then [someone says to] the President of the United States, which is [George W.] Bush, ''They've been taken care of. Thank God you saved the world again.'' And you turn, and you see who told him that, and it's one of the Cylons.

Thanks for that! Great interviews and I loved EJO's idea about what happens when they find earth. :p

Excellent stuff. I love how the actors are such big fans of their own show.

Wow, really good little link. So I guess that's it, they're Cylons. Freaky. I can't say I like the continued erosion of the Human v. Cylon axis the show revolves on, but the more I relax on the Tigh-as-Cylon issue the more I kind of like it for some reason. He's built such an unbelievably strong character in the Colonel, I didn't really appreciate it until I realized the amount of re/deconstruction they'll have to do. Plus you just know he can kick every other Cylon's ass in his sleep. He must have been the one D'Anna apologized to in her vision, for setting him up in the interview back in the day.

One wouldn't expect the actors to say, "This show sucks and Ron Moore is a big fat dummy and I only do it for the money!" :)
If Tigh and Starbuck are cylons, how does it come to pass that Six can kick their ass?

Because he didn't know he was, he's was like Dumbo but now he has his feather.

Another great interview: Mark Sheppard (http://tv.ign.com/articles/773/773544p1.html), who played the attorney Lampkin in the last three episodes. Some good insights into the show and some neat backstage stories.
