All of this has had spoilers before, and all of this will have spoilers again.
Spoiler policy: If it’s been aired, or if it’s purely speculative, no need for a spoiler box. If it’s from a future episode, as revealed in interviews or by other means, or if it’s speculation based on same, hide it in a spoiler box, and provide a label as to the general nature of the spoiler so we can decide whether or not it’s something we want to know.
(Yeah, I know, I haven’t started one of these threads in a while. Since the show moved to Sunday nights, I’ve had to let it drop; I’m rarely online on Sunday afternoons, and by the time I check in late that night or the next morning, the thread’s already ripping along. But today I found myself at loose ends, and we’re winding up the season, so what the frak. :))
Guest star tonight: Mark Sheppard, best known to genre fans as Badger in Firefly. Woo Firefly! He is apparently playing Baltar’s lawyer, though I’ve seen a couple of interviews where he’s rather coy as to the specific nature of his role, so presumably there will be complications. He says it’s great, though.
There have also been rumblings, here at the SDMB and elsewhere, that something major is in the offing for the last three episodes of the third season. There was a link in the thread about Baltar’s trial; I didn’t click it, and from me and everyone else who wants to remain unspoiled in this final stretch, appreciation in advance for the continued concealment of whatever revelations lurk therein.
Here’s to hoping whatever malaise has affected the writing staff gets shaken off at least long enough to give us a balls-out roller-coaster climax. My anticipation is high; I remember feeling similarly uncertain after a series of subpar installments approaching the end of season two, and look how that worked out.
