My Battlestar Galactica Commentary – "33"

I hate when they leave the “Previously On…” at the beginning of DVD Collections. I just watched all this, now I have to watch it again for 3 minutes.

Oh, I remember this one now. Thanks to the little “33” taped to the clock on Colonial One. It’s little details like that that really make a show stand out to me – the little things that I’d do in the same situation.

I like how the pilot of Colonial One says, “Ladies and Gentleman, I’m afraid the Cyclons have appeared again…” with the same tone as saying, “Ladies and Gentleman, I’m afraid due to weather on the ground in Chicago, we’ll be leaving a little late.”

They all do such a good job of acting like they’ve been up for five days. I can only imagine that’s realistic. The most I’ve ever stayed up is 48 hours. And that was near insanity for me.

Am I supposed to know who that picture is of that the pilots keep tapping? Who do they think they are, Notre Dame? They are so much cooler.

It just started storming outside – the perfect mood setter.

This is a good follow-up to the mini-series. It shows the aftermath incredibly well. How people deal with the loss and with having 50,000 survivors of the human race left.

With how crazy Baltar has been acting this whole time, how does anyone trust him! Maybe it’s the sleep deprivation, but he’s acting as sketchy as Bubbles from The Wire.

Baltar is a genius, but he can’t conceive of the Olympic Carrier as being a Cyclon trap? But if no one is on board, how are they speaking with the other ships.

I’m a little hazy on their religion. This guy says “Thank the Gods,” but Baltar replies, “God’s got nothing to do with this.” Is their religion like Greek mythology? There’s Zeus and then those other guys.

Frak, I forgot there were still survivors on Caprica!

Apollo and Starbuck are arguing like my girlfriend and me after a long and tiring day. Realism at its finest!

I like that they refer to those that died as “souls.” They’re the military, but they still care.

That cut above Adama’s eye, is that from him fighting the Cylon? I love the details.

What do these guys want with Helo? Shouldn’t they just kill him?

She doesn’t deal with decisions well, huh? And how does she expect to be alone, when her office/cabin is full of other people? Are they so insignificant to her that she doesn’t see them anymore? For someone keeping a headcount by whiteboard, she doesn’t seem to give a shit about the guy napping six feet away.

This show would have been better if Bartlet were President.
