Phurby, that's some cool ideas about Gaius, maybe could explain for some of his quirky qualities.
How about the boxing episode. Not the strongest, but it gave us a slight break from the Cylon/Colonist line. Plus I thought it was cool that they showed us how the first few days on New Caprica were like and why Lee and Kara were not speaking to each other much... not really surprising why Kara just ran off to marry Anders right after sleeping with Lee. She's always impulsive and self-destructive. But the odd thing about that who Kara-Sam-Lee triangle (not that it's probably going to be there any longer) is that Kara went out of her way with Bill Adama and Roslin to go rescue Anders from Caprica and that she showed quite the passion and dedication for him to promise she'd come back for him. It was a different side of Kara... not a one-night stand thing. Yeah, she and Lee almost did the deed in Scar, but Lee backed out on that... and he's the one who's done the kissing and confessions to her.
Now D and Sam Anders are quite expendable in the show... I mean Sam is just a civilian with no real attachment now. It will be interesting to see how their characters are now portrayed in the show.
True. And how cool was it to see Bill Adama and Roslin splitting a phat joint together?
