OK PEOPLE I WATCHED BSG.

I DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING.

DAMN GOOD WRITING.

(Still not sure it was worth THAT MUCH waiting...)

I haven't watched since it was broadcast and I had no problem following everything. GO TO HULU NOW.

GOOD:
- Adama: "I don't frakkin' know." Best drunk acting (er, acting drunk) ever.
- Leoben's reaction to Kara Thrace and Her Special Destiny.
- Roslin's reactions to anything at all.

BAD:
- Dualla. Really, that just felt cheap and manipulative.
- Just generally I'm not feeling the tone of desperation they were aiming for, and it's something they've done so well in the past. Senioritis?

ON THE FENCE:
- The Final Cylon: I realized last season that they had so successfully made everybody a suspect that the reveal would necessarily be unsatisfying. I was right, but I do give them points for trying to pull out a surprise. Leaving a little circumstantial uncertainty around it was a good move.

Adama: "I don't frakkin' know."
FRACK EARTH: best graffiti EVAR.
Leoben's reaction
Had so much impact beause iirc we've never yet seen him come undone, and he's just, LOST.
- Roslin's reactions to anything at all.
I think that loooong silence that went on BEAT after BEAT in the beginning was fabulous.

I wasn't feeling desperation, and I don't think I felt the lost-despair until Adama's walking down the trashed corridor with guys smoking and fighting and he STILL doesn't have it together. Seeing that corridor really did kick in the sense of just how drifting they were at that moment.

I liked the final cylon a lot because she's the first one I suspected of being a skinjob once that was revealed, and they never gave me reasons to STOP suspecting, but I did anyway, so I give them bonus props for that little game.

I also think the 13th tribe reveal was really cool, put all the context built up so far in a whole new light, but I'm mad at myself for not figuring it out, because it seems like they gave me enough clues.

I guess I always give bonus points to things I didn't see coming clearly, because it's just so uncommon, and BSG has been just SO good about baiting me the wrong way that it gets that bonus frequently.
