Am I the only one getting a sense of temporal inconsistency in the Ellen story arc? I mean, she was killed on New Caprica, and presumably resurrected shortly after. But when she and Boomer rejoined Galactica, it was in the now, which would necessitate several months having gone by since her resurrection. But the previous episode seemed to suggest that only a few days had gone by before she and Boomer made their escape. So either something unrevealed went on between the time they escaped and the time they rejoined Galactica, or this jumping process sometimes screws with both space and time, or some writer messed up the timeline.

I thought the arc kept jumping back and forth, i.e. - 18 months ago, 10 months ago, 4 months ago, until they wouldn't show how long ago that event was taking, which led me to believe it was present day. I assumed that when Boomer stole away with Ellen, it was real time activity, but you could be right - they could have been running for a period of time, and possibly went to some locale for reasons as of yet unknown.

This is correct.

Of course not. But I don't think he meant to bore the **** out of us with season 3, either.

I think the point of the episode was to do what Moore told everbody he intended with this season, and that's to blur the line between human and cylon.

I just expected it to be a little less...estrogen.

I like drama as much as anybody, but Friday's episode wasn't all that entertaining.

Heh, that's a bit harsh. Season 4 has completely outpaced Season 3, but I certainly don't feel like I got the **** bored out of me back then.

It had its moments, but by and large there was a whole lot of nothing going on for me. Not enough shit blowing up.

A good take, and I agree. Strangely, this very statement has me looking forward to next week's episode even more, since we all know some heavy shit is on the way....

We are in complete agreement here. I like lots of big explosions in space.

I think it's pretty clear they're saving budget for a huge ending. I'm expecting some spectacular space battles.

I think I heard somewhere that Galactica will be joined in the final battle by the Enterprise, and the Cavil-cade will be joined by the Death Star!

Earlier I said the last episode didn't do anything to advance the story-line, but thats not entirely true.

The Pure-Bred Cylon baby did die. That was sorta important.

If it really died. Part of me is half-expecting them to pull the same stunt they did with Sharon's baby. Of course, they'd have to be pretty desperate to pull the same stunt twice.

I tried to write the following sentence like 3 times, and each time after I read it back it was all garbled and confusing, so keep that in mind.

Now that the Resurrection Hub is destroyed, do you think it will be easier for Cylons to reproduce w/ eachother? Theres no other way for the Cylons to resurrect now, so they have to somehow keep the race alive, and I don't think the Humans are going to be that willing to procreate w/ the Cylons...

I thought what they were trying to get across is that 'love', or perhaps better 'humanity' is the secret ingredient in successful cylon reproduction. So in that sense, the resurrection technology probably is a hinderance. What I mean is that 6 and 8 are the least machine-like models, and they're the two that have achieved it. Love led to Hera, at least. Caprica 6 and Tigh is a little more complicated, but it's obvious that love was a part of it by the end, and that a question of that is what ended it.

I think that's part of the whole 'what is human? what is cylon?' question. The cylon civil war was essentially the machine cylons (cavil, doral and simon) attacking the human cylons (leoben, six and sharon). We learned two weeks ago about Cavil hating what he is, wanting to be more of a machine, and the whole series has shown six, sharon and even leoben (albeit in a twisted way) seeking 'love'.

It's pretty deep stuff if you stop to think about it.
