the great soap opera in the sky


dumb-dumb and stinky-pants
Battlestar Galactica is about to start (east coasters have already seen it).

[Spoiler Alert] I know at least one of you is waiting for the season 3 dvds to come out. Read this post again once you're about half way through. But stop reading now.

It's the second episode of season 3.5, in which, according to the previews, we will see if Starbuck and Apollo get together, or if they'll keep their spouses.

You could fit my interest in this situation into the period at the end of this sentence.

What really irks me about it is not that they'll devote 75% of the episode to dumb-dumb and stinky-pants, but that I know this and I'll watch it anyway. They have just enough interesting plot threads left that I can't give up yet.

But they peaked in season two. Most of the 'many threaded' dramas seem to do this. All the ones I've watched have.

I was far too absorbed in the Baltar plot to really be distracted by Apollo and Starbuck. James Callis deserves at least an Emmy nomination, if not an outright win. Of course, it just shows the in-many-ways-much-deserved-but-not-in-this-instance bias against sci-fi that critics and award givers have.

The baltar plot was good. I just wished they had more of that and less of dumb-dumb and stinky pants. It seemed to me that at least 50% of the episode was them whining.

And how would you know that Mr. Wilson?

I can't imagine.

On another note, one of those internet tube things comes right to my house dontcherknow.

We have to go down to the tube station to use those.
