Battlestar Galactica 2x18

I had a super-busy weekend and am behind on everything, including answering LJ comments. I'm really sorry it's taking me so long. I couldn't wait any longer to watch this week's BSG, though. (I didn't get the name of the ep.)

Something you should know about me: I am a Cylon sympathizer.

So great to get back to Caprica and this time from the Cylon's point of view. I love how they are rebuilding, trying to fit inside the human skin that's left. It seems like they are trying to make themselves in the image of humans, but better, rather than taking their own path.

It was interesting that so many of the main players and significant figures this week were female: Sharon x 2, Six, Xena (what's her number?), Roslin, and of course, baby Hera. The Cylons seem very female dominated.

So that sets them up to be the mother to the humans' father, something that's reproduced in small scale with Sharon and Helo, Six and Baltar. I am really looking forward to seeing what they make together. Because this can't end with the humans escaping the Cylons. They have to integrate somehow.

Imaginary!Baltar rules! He's so suave and composed, so unlike the Baltar we know. And now we know there's some real link between Baltar and Six, something beyond hallucination. How would that work?

I am dying to learn more about the Cylon religion. Who is their god? Is s/he real? A giant computer? A myth? Actually, they say "he" when they talk about god, right? Interesting. Maybe he's made in the image of man, but perfected.

Anders, you are not very exciting, but maybe Kara will come for you now. Not to mention those fracking baby factories.

Having the baby adopted: very bad idea. There's no way that's not going to come back and bite them in the ass.

And Helo and Tyrol sending the ashes into space killed me. You know that Tyrol and the other Sharon are going to meet some day.

This was an odd episode -- a lot happened but it didn't feel coherent to me. But it seems to be setting up a new arc, so that's all good.
