I hope BSG is going somewhere good with the Cylon "god thing." E was talking about how it seems they're working Baltar's ego with the whole "my submission to god makes me special" theme, and I suddenly realized how frighteningly like fundamentalist Islam that sounds. So I wonder if all the middle eastern sounding music is intentionally supporting that? Tonight's music sounded very Celtic. I expected to hear "The Man You Don't Meet Every Day" for a minute there.
Also, Starbuck is so, so, so, very, very hot. She may be the first unambiguous female woobie I have seen in any fandom. I find I kinda like watching her suffer. But enough about my twisted mental issues.
Oh. And President Roslin as the iconic High Priestess is sort of working for me.
On Atlantis, we have three ships coming to destroy us. E points out that at the end of SG1 season one, it was only two ships coming to destroy us. But why nitpick?
Seriously, I was very happy to see a Teyla centric-episode. I really like Teyla. And I was dazzled by what happened to her face when the Wraith had control of her. *delicious shudder* Rachel Luttrel is a better actor than the scripts have given her room to be so far.
One more note: McKay/Zelenka is my Atlantis OTP. So married. I'm pretty sure the psychiatrist is a beard. Wasn't she dating a woman, anyway?
The most significant point for me about Threads is the loss of Jacob. Oh, gods. The daddy-daughter thing always gets me, and Sam and her Dad have been through so much in the last few years. I'm going to miss Selmac specifically. I loved the way s/he kind of manipulated Jacob into reconciling with Mark way back when. I think I'd better move on before I lose it.
Oma? Such a greasy-spoon waitress. It's almost too obvious. And I truly think the ending of this ep would have been a great series finale. O-T-4! O-T-4!
That's all I've got for now. Good night, moon.
