New episode tonight.
Will there be repercussions for Adama’s unilateral (and, I still think, legally questionable) decision to close the tribunal and end the investigation? Is Sgt Hadrian still confined to quarters?
Will Chief Tyrol’s conflicting loyalties (to Boomer vs duty) finish wrestling with one another? Will he tell anyone what he is clearly beginning to suspect?
Is Starbuck still being kept in the background in sickbay, after several weeks of being front and center?
Will they remember they have a captured Cylon raider, since they didn’t talk about it at all last week? Or has it been stuck in the same corner where Enterprise keeps its Suliban pod?
Why was it important for Boomer II back on Caprica to keep Helo alive and under observation?
Is anybody going to comment on Baltar’s odd behavior? (I halfway expect to see him in the corridor talking to his fist: “Daggit flavored kee-ses!”)
How’s the President’s New Age cancer treatment going?
And will her curly-haired aide get a line this week, after a couple of episodes in a row of standing around off to the side?
And from last week’s preview for this week’s show: Number Six is talking to Adama? What the hell? Okay, speculation ahead— either this is the actual human on which the Cylons based their Number Six design, just to mess with people; or this is another copy of the Number Six model; or there really is a chip in Baltar’s head and it can project realities into other people’s minds, not just his. The last is stupid and Star Trekky; I don’t know which of the first two I think is better. Either way, Baltar is fracked.
Standard weekly questions: Who gets naked and screws? What will be the latest thing to be messed up by the overworked and undersupervised enlisteds?
Rumor line: Second season to start shooting next month, will air in the fall, will have 20 (!) episodes. Unconfirmed, but… —crosses fingers—
Also, I’ve been checking out some of the interviews online, and I had no idea that Jamie Bamber, the guy who plays Lee Adama (Apollo), is actually British. Seriously, check it out. Oh, and for another amusing interview, read this chat with Aaron Douglas, who plays Chief Tyrol, and find out how his unabashed love of the 70’s original made him severely skeptical of the remake idea.
—can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait—
