Arrggghhh!!! Stupid Sci-Fi or DVR!!!!  


Kara, the Sarge and Callie were watching the Cylons walk by and he asked her "what next?" I screamed. Damnit!!!! Taping it again tomorrow, but it sucks, sucks, suck that it cut off then! DAMNIT!!!!

About what I saw, I know I'm so in the minority, but I was loving Kara and Anders, thrilled that I only had to deal with two Lee scenes. (Thank God the last three episodes did not revolve around WonderLee! Ugh!) And dude, I woulda done what Baltar did (so maybe I'm a coward too?), but what other option did he have beyond surrendering at that point? The frickin' battlestars deserted them and the Cylons already showed their massive ability to wipe out humanity. On a much lesser note, I was quite happy to see Gaeta working for Gaius, because I loved their interaction (esp. the bathroom scene way back when) throughout the series as little of it as there was and so I thought it was cool that Gaius was with him.

Anyhoo, frustration aside for missing the ending and the wait to see it, but the episode was really good. The last three episodes have reminded me of why I loved this show in the first place. Awesome!

Still, stupid Sci-Fi or DVR, whichever was responsible for cutting the damn show off!!!

Oh, that's frustrating! I've been planning to upgrade to digital cable with DVR this year and comments like these make me kind of nervous about doing so. I bought a new DVD recorder/VCR unit this week and I was freaking out a little bit last night that it wouldn't record right for me, since it was the first thing I was recording. Fortunately it worked and I just got to watch it.

You really only missed one line from Kara, so at least it wasn't a lot that you missed. And a generic preview for next season. (By generic, I mean it was clips from season 2 with a voiceover talking about season 3.)

I know I'm so in the minority...

Really? LOL. That makes me kind of glad I don't really play around in the BG fandom because I totally agree with everything you said. I really liked Kara and Anders and now I'm pretty worried he's not going to make it - either from the pneumonia or Leoben.

As for Lee, I kind of liked him before, but ever since the whole black market episode and his hookup with Dee...well, now I find him and Dee both pretty annoying. Which makes me a little sad because I used to like Dee.

It's true that Gaius really didn't have any choice about surrendering at that point. I wonder how long it's going to be before it becomes public knowledge that he was in bed (literally!) with a Cylon and was pretty much involved, one way or another, in so many of the Cylons' successful attacks on humanity.

I was a little startled at first to see Gaeta working for Balta, but then it made perfect sense, so I was cool with it.

And I love that Laura's still keeping an eye on the baby because you just know that whole deception's going to be uncovered at some point.

The last three episodes have reminded me of why I loved this show in the first place.

I agree. There were a couple of episodes there that I wasn't thrilled with, but the last few really brought things back up again.

Man, they certainly weren't afraid of totally shaking up the show, were they? And now we have 7 months to wait for new episodes. Argh.

Oh, DVR is TOTALLY worth it. It will revolutionize the way you watch TV. Totally awesome. And with the way things are now, you can always download eps from torrent if there is a mistake. But it doesn't happen often. This is the first glitch that wasn't caused by stupid FOX or CBS Football running over, and you just have to pay attention to when the big sports events are happening and adjust your DVR. I always have Cold Case to tape for 2 hours just to be safe because of it.

As for Lee, I kind of liked him before, but ever since the whole black market episode and his hookup with Dee...well, now I find him and Dee both pretty annoying. Which makes me a little sad because I used to like Dee.

Yeah, EXACTLY. That's exactly how I feel. Yeah, I'm not really into the BSG fandom online because it's a Lee lovefest and I just don't even remotely feel it at all. A good comparison (from what I've seen) is that it's like the Logan/Jason love in the VM fandom. Me? I can't fathom it, but to each their own.

I was talking with my BFF and she was oohing and aahing over James Lafferty (of One Tree Hill) and I just do not get it at all. He's mildly good-looking, but she just gushes and I don't get it. He does nothing for me at all. On the flip side, she feels exactly the same about Jason. She thinks he's good-looking, but does not get my gushing and lusting for and over him. She does not see it. So yeah, to each their own. In the BSG fandom, I'm just in the minority, so I don't dabble much in it.

Tell me about it!!

Hee! I just got off the phone with the cable company and I'm going to be picking up my Digital+DVR converter tomorrow after work. I'm far too excited about this. :)

Really? I mean, I think Jamie Bamber's a good-looking guy but it's hard to imagine his character inspiring that much devotion. Huh.

I don't watch the show so I had to look him up. Good-looking guy, but the pictures aren't really jumping out at me. I know for me, personally, some actors who maybe aren't the best-looking, can grab me so much with their peformance or their voice (I have a thing for voices) that they don't even need to score very high on the good-looking scale for me to gush. :)
