Interesting episode last night, but a little slow I thought...  I guess I just wished there was more Six/Sharon/Baltar and Lee/Starbuck and less Helo/Crazy Doctor.   

Next week looks interesting though... more action anyway.

I agree Jeff.  I thought last night's episode was good, and it was about time they built a bit on Helo's character....I thought it could've had a LOT more in it.  How about a look at what the hell the Cylons are up to right now?  We haven't gotten a glimpse of them since they left the Algae planet.

It's actually the Cylon high holidays right now.  They're not doing much since they're not allowed to use technology from sunset to sunset.

I agree that last night's episode was a little slow and narrow.  Maybe it's because I strated watching this series this season, but I missflying and shooting.  Or at least chasing.  A few jiggy establishing shots of Galactica or other ships don't count.

Thank the Gods!

The Sci Fi Channel has ordered a 13-episode fourth season of Battlestar Galactica to debut in Jan. 2008!

Raise a toaster in the air and repeat after me: "Frak, yeah!"

No official confirmation from Sci Fi, but the L.A. Times says a formal announcement is expected later today. The Times also is confirming that a major character will be unmasked as a Cylon before the end of the season. And if my BSG mole is to be believed, it's not:

Only 13 episodes... It's better than nothing I suppose. If the rumors of the DVD movie are true I guess that would partially make up for the short season.

I really love this show, but some of the "lesser" episodes have not gotten under my skin the way the greats have. I never think that the show is less than good, but some of the episdoes are so amazing, that other can't compare.  I'd rather have 13 excellent episodes, than 22 good ones.  "The Sheild" is only 13 episodes long each season, and it stays intense throughout the whole thing.

I liked last night's episode, but it was nice to hear we're not the only ones counting the days since we've seen any Cylons.

Yeah....a similar thing happened last season when Apollo was on a self destructive binge and they spent quite a few episodes developing his character.  I thought they were the weakest episodes of the season and really slowed the pace of the story down.

Yeah, I hope they pick up the pace soon.  For some reason, this reminds me of X Files when I was a younger.  They had some really good episodes and then the plots started to be weak and somewhat repetitive.  The episodes became not as interesting.  I kinda lost interest every week to want to see the show.  I'm by no means comparing BSG to X Files because BSG is a WAY better, but the show is beginning to slowly remind me of that.  It's probably just this part of the season.  Hopefully, it'll pick up soon, and anyways, it's gotta cause someone's leaving the show!

I'm just wondering if they're trying to build Helo and Chief's characters more and give them a more dominant role in the show, considering all the rumors going around.

I'm glad that we got to see another doctor aboard the fleet, though he turned out to be an evil Sen. Kelly type.

The "They just didn't go there" award for the last episode goes to... Helo and Hotdog's exchange.

Hotdog: I've got this weird rash. (as he itches the inside of his thigh)

Helo: I hope she was worth it. (and moves to a seat further away from Hotdog)
