Hm so what did you think of the last installment of BSG?
I have to admit I was disappointed. Maybe because it was much slower pace then the previous few episodes, maybe because there were no revelations galore or perhaps because it was all mostly about Ellen and Tigh.
I have read Amy’s commentary on the episode and I do have to agree – Ellen is a tad bit insane. No wonder I have never even considered her as a possibility when it came to “guess the Cylon competition”. Ellen as one of the Final 5 – you got to be kidding me! This is supposed to be the same woman who is responsible for the invention of hybrid Cylons? To me she looks a bit – whats the word – unhinged?
And oh so human – the way she cornered Tigh in front of Caprica Six declaring he will always put Bill Adama and the ship first – well dah woman and that was the worst case of human melodramatics if I have ever seen one.
But then I thought look at Baltar. Remember the pilot episode? Dr. Gauis Baltar was hailed as the smartest, most brilliant man of all the Colonies. Then again it was the same man who fell in love (or more accurately in lust) with a Cylon, managed to play a vital part in the destruction of human race, proceeded to talk to his invisible lover (as well as himself) and ended up walking around wrapped in a blanket talking about God all the time.
So if Ellen and Baltar are anything to go by, it seems exceptionally smart people are a bit gaga. At least in BSG they are.
Come to think of it Baltar and Ellen would be perfect for each other. Not only because they are a bit gaga but also because Tigh is now with Caprica Six. The oddest case of wife swap ever. See I told you – perfect!
I do hope this week’s installment will pick up the pace. I would really like BSG to go out with a bang.
I will leave you with this bit of BSG news via TV Addict – Universal Pictures is planning to turn BSG into a feature movie. However it will be based on the original BSG series rather then the latest installment.
So what do you think dear faithful readers?
Is Ellen completely insane? And for any fashion conscious readers – how about Baltar’s choice of blankets (I thought it made him look a tad bit drab)?
And last but not least – what are your thoughts about the possible BSG feature movie?
