Dan,

Thanks for catching me up on some of those figures I missed!! And for borrowing the book and the deck chairs!! Super nice of you! As I said, I owe you a beer the December meeting (since we're both out in Nov.  :()

Between you and jedijaybird, I feel like I'm supporting your Kubrick habits.  8)

Of couse I have yet to see the green clone too... ::)

I wish I could send you all ours so we could clear the pegs for En-boo waves, but I'm pretty sure they fill them right back up with GB and H&V!!  >:( :(

Battlestar Galactica,
24 (at least in January when the new season starts),
World Series (Go Red Birds)

2961
Same here... though I might have to eat crow since Endor and Naboo waves are sporadically found.  :-\ I've found what I want, but there are other TCJD members that have yet to find them.

Agreed about the story. The brilliant tapestry of the storytelling of BG makes everything work better, but you do have to admit, after TPM, ILM did nothing new or breathtaking with the SW FX. In fact, that shot of Galactica getting pummeled with the camera pulling away and then Pegasus' barrage entering frame was a better FX sequence than any in SW film since the reveal of the Executor in ESB. If there is one better, name it.

The only sequence that came remotely close was the opening of ROTS, but that ultimately turned out to be a mess in every respect.

Agreed there. That was an awesome shot of Pegasus coming in to save the day. RotS did a cool bit with Cruiser, but then it was too much and distracting from the plot (let's take a couple seconds to pan from our heroes to show debris flying from one ship into another and then back to the heros... it was all about showing the explosions then advancing the plot... same with the buzz droids)

Anyone know if there are going to be any "catch up" marathons of season 3? I only recently got Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD (will finish Season 2 tomorrow), but I've missed all of Season 3 so far, and dont want to jump in 5 episodes late.

If you've got Comcast all the Season 3 epiosdes are On Demand. I'd think they do some sort of marathon over the Christmas break, but I haven't heard any concrete plans yet.

Really?! Thanks for the heads-up. I'll have to check it out!!  ;D

Yeah, that was a great ep. I just am not patient to wait another week to watch the next episode.

My take is that the cylons truly want to be loved. Simple, but it's at the core of what makes us human....


Speedermike, that's an interesting take on the Cylons. I just kind of wonder if they're incompatible with their own kind in some ways... but why would they need to when there are several copies of them about, since they can't reproduce amongst themselves. Umm, weird talk.

As for the episode... SPOILERS BELOW





Glad they clarified Kacey, too. I knew that it had to be a ploy for Leoban to get Starbuck to love him and I know it wouldn't work... she just fell in love with a kid she believed was hers.

The whole Ellen Tigh deal was surprising in someways. I understood that a lot of the colonists would not forgive her for her betrayal, and I understood why Anders said it be better if Saul resolved the matter himself. But it was amazing how well they wrote that final scene between Ellen and he... quite powerful and sad. Especially when Tigh meets Bill Adama again on the Galactica and how he regrets that he wasn't able to bring everyone back and we know about whom he's talking.

Now, the whole rescue was cool, too. We knew Lee would return and we knew at somepoint that the Pegasus would be history, but wow! that was awesome... ramming a Basestar and taking out another with debris!!

I just finished s2 on dvd and missed the 1st episode of s3. I hope it airs again soon.

That's irksome that they split the season in 2. I only got half way into Season 2 myself. But I'm kind of catching up.

I agree with the Starbuck mom thing. But I don't think she's gone soft. I think (hopefully) she's acting so that Leoben thinks she's his.
Not sure why most Cylons are thinking they've got to get with humans, though. If they can bear human-human Cylons, then why can't they produce two humanoid Cylons. Why the fixation. Somethings up with the Cylons we don't know about.

Go Cards!! Hopefully it'll be a better WS than the last one they were in... that was almost "scripted" for the BoSox.

I'd agree with Rob. Figure 12 figures representing each movie comprised of the main characters filling the case:

Anakin
Vader
Obi-wan/Ben
Chewie
Luke
Leia
Han
R2
3-PO
Lando
Palpatine
Yoda

Seems weird since we'd need some troopers, or Fetts, even Padme, but Padme gets no respect anyway.

Edit- This is the way I think Hasbro would want it. If it had to end now I'd want at 12 figures that we haven't gotten yet. I know I at least want:

Cliegg Lars
Owen Lars
Beru Whitesun
Bultar Swan
Tarados Gon
Roth del Masona
Padme (Fireplace)
Padme (Naboo picnic)
Toryn Farr

And for those I know are strongly for them:
Ice Cream Maker Guy
CZ-3
Bom Vimdin

That's a cool, pic, Rune! Thanks for sharing!

I saw him only once so far and passed on him, just like I'll do everytime I see him. I just think the sculpt is horrendous and fugly.

Probably not... but we can dream right.  :D
