Battlestar Galactica 4×8 : Everything Changes May 31, 2008

Talk about an episode that changes EVERYTHING.

From beginning to end this episode had more plot twists and turns than any other episode in the previous four years of Battlestar Galactica

First off when they rushed the Six (that Athena shot) into Doc Coddle area, we figured they were rushing her there to save here…and she’d survive – NOPE.

Tigh impregnating Caprica Six!!!! Who saw that coming???!! WOW.

Adm Bill ‘Husker’ Adama relinquishing command? aNOTHER FRAKIN wow.

Tigh – a FRAKING CYLON SKIN JOB – taking command of the fleet!!

Lee Adama as President???!! where did that come from..

And Lampkin’s cat?? Did we just imagine the cat the whole time? (seeing at it had been dead??)

Just a lot of stuff to digest in one epsiode…this season sure did start of slow but man oh man has it picked up the pace now. This one episode of intense dramatic shift makes it all worthwhile doesn’t it?

hey this is doc from the itunes podcast: Heroes of Science Fiction and Fantasy, thought the same thing about the six. Nope-Dead-she couldn’t be saved. Lamkin without his glasses for most of the episode. We are down to the last two episodes now. Episode 7 was my favorite of season 4(Gaeta singing at the end). website http://www.heroesofsciencefictionandfantasy.com voicemail 1-206-333-1297

I didn’t like this episode. They are making too many characters behave out of character. Adama would never relinquish command because of a woman – btw the scene where he fights Saul felt out of high-school :(. Also, Lee as president – it was too bad they put him in politics in the first place, but this is waaaay too much. And how come Starbuck is back in control of herself and acts as the exemplary military commander, when she was on the verge of going nuts just a couple of episodes ago? The whole scene with Romo Lampkin was dragged, I know he was going to name Lee right from the start. His motivation about his cat was stupid.

The only nice part is that we don’t know yet what happened with Roslin & co on the base star.

Starbuck found the Gas Giant with the comet, and the fleet is now heading in that direction. She no longer has the itch that desperately needs to be scratched. So until the next clue comes along, she is back in her own head.
