Amen, the last 2 sucked badly.. I watched them with the remote in hand so i could skip the 'filling' stuff.. ended up skipping most of it.

At least i didn't waste 2 hours, more like 20 minutes

You know what's better than racism on TV?

Space racism.

This season was just too long. They couldn't do too much so they resorted to filling in gaps with filler.

It happens, I guess, but I'm glad the fourth (and probably final) season will be shorter.

I haven't watched the last 3. They are sitting in the DVR. No urge to watch them, don't know why.

Just caught up on the last three. Not great, but not terrible. I kind of like seeing the turmoil of a population on the move. The struggle between maintaining a society and surviving. Interesting. I am keeping hope that the last few episodes of the season end with a bang.

In my opinion the characters are getting stale. Everything we learnt about starbuck in the last episode fits with everything we already knew. She's screwed up emotionally, we get it!

************Spoiler Alert********














I was very excited about the second to last episode (chief on the refinery ship) until the end. I liked the class conflict element. To me the scenes with adama and roslin talking about how class differences were "natural" were well done. If the show is going to go past season four it needs more conflicts to fill in episodes and the class/race thing could have been it for awhile. But what happens? In the end we get the enlightened president convincing chief to lead the union and solving the entire issue with a few promises. The subject looks to have died right there.

Who knows, maybe there will be a re-surfacing down the line as one of the final five?

According to the next episode notes: "When Baltar's legal team faces assassination attempts, Adama asks Lee to protect Baltar's lawyer. After taking on the assignment, Lee soon seeks to play a more direct role in Baltar's defense."

What a surprise - Emopollo getting soft again.

I liked the Chief episode.

He's an interesting character in that he values hard work and the people who do it but he's also a fairly loyal soldier.

Plus, it showed how impatient the Admiral and the President were and how they take a lot of the support functions for granted (partially because they have to).

As for the Starbuck episode, I think it's a bit of a shock but it was designed to be one.

Someone online made an interesting comment about Aurora, the goddess represented in the figurine the Oracle gave to Starbuck which she subsequently gave to Adama.

According to the myth, Aurora is reborn each day and leads the Sun across the sky.

4 AWESOME Katee Sackhoff interviews, including one just yesterday.

The best one is still the one they did in December with Sackhoff live in the studio, it's got them tlaking about ball-juggling for 40 minutes.

So again I assume Starbuck is a cylon. I think her mom knew all along and this is why she is special.

That's the easy conclusion to make.

The mother was involved in the Cylon wars as a veteran?

I'd just to remind people of the supposed rule that "If you were in the 1st Cylon War, You can't be a Cylon"

Mom going ape**** on Starbuck could explain a lot, in that she was both ashamed of what she had done (hint hint), but torn because Starbuck was her child nonetheless.

I really liked the last episode.

We're finally going somewhere.

The lawyer is an extremely compelling character given his penchant for kleptomania and his silly yet totally cool shades.

His straight shooting nature and extremely perceptive comments about the other crew is like a breath of fresh air considering how stale the dynamic between many of the characters had become.

Yes, it is a bit odd to be headed in the legal drama direction and it may put off some of the more action-oriented viewers of the show.

(It's also a fairly lame plug for their supposed spin-off, Caprica, about Joseph Adama the defence attorney)

However, I like Apollo best when he has a little bit of backbone in him and the idea of him helping to defend Baltar with his Dad on the jury is a nice twist.

I have to disagree somewhat. I thought the shades, the dark clothing, the contrived hushed and melodramatic gravel voice were all cartoonish. Brutal. Maybe he's just a bad actor? I understand the whole mysterious defence lawyer with a sketchy background with an amazing grasp of human relationships coming to defend *the* scum of the human race thing, but this was so bloody poorly executed. Awful awful awful.

A space courtroom spin-off?? Yikes, you've got to be kidding me. I just hope it has a lot of racist space justice in it to make Ironchef Chris Wok happy.

I'm getting a little tired of this actually. The writers have seen fit to make Emopollo really bipolar. He wavers between loyal son and defiant son all the time. Every time the story evolves to the point where it looks like he's really one or the other, he randomly goes in the opposite direction. Pick a damned side! We know you're emo, but are you really *that* unstable?

If it were up to me, yes. Maybe they spent too much of the budget on episode 4 of this season.
