Caprica may have been canceled but the final episodes have been avail in Canada and we’ve now had the chance to watch some of ’em. The entire season 1.5 dvd is out in December.

Episode 13 is one such final episode…

We finally see the Cylons used for the purpose they were intended – to kill humans.

Sam Adama is the first human to use the Cylons that way and he gets the best greeting a Battlestar Galactica fan could ask for.

Task Completed




Battlestar Galactica Finale – What The Frak Was That? Starbuck an angel? Let’s fly all our ships into the sun? March 21, 2009

After all the excitement – 6 years of TV dating back to the original mini-series in 2003. This is how it ends.

Starbuck isn’t a Cylon – she’s an ‘angel’? what was her ship that came back then?

The first hour of this show Season 4 Episode 20 Daybreak (Daybreak, Part 3) was great – the assault on the Cylon colony – centurions fighting centurions classic and new…guns blazing in all out slaughter.

The deal with Cavel – also brilliant..as was Tyrol going nuts when he realized who killed Calli that was all neat up until they jumped away.

Then the show went right to hell.

Lets fly all our ships into the sun because technology is bad?? WHAT THE FRAK IS THAT.

(yes it was cool to hear the classic Battlestar Galactica theme though as the ships sailed into the sun though).

The visions of Caprica and Baltar were just angels too? I’m not sure about that.

The whole idea that the Galactica’s crew then goes on 150,000 years later  to help seed humanity on Earth — that was kinda neat and it was neat to see Ron Moore at the newsstand in New York City.

This is it? Really?

So yes there were some redeeming moments to this series finale for sure. Yes it did try and tie up as many loose ends as possible. But it was in our view still somewhat disappointing.

Battlestar Galactica in this new creation has always tried to take a high moral ground and be about more than just science fiction. But to say that technology is the root of evil is just wrong. For the colonists to give up their ships and technology entirely makes no sense. For Starbuck to just be an ‘angel’ makes no sense.

Of all the great BattleStar Galactica episodes – and there have been some 80 hours of it at this point – this is not Galactica’s finest hour. Not by a long shot.

It’s a mediocre and unsatisfying end to a magnificent series.

We will miss you Galactica and we will remember the good times, the great times, the fantastic characters and scenarios and we will be grateful. It will be hard for anyone to ever replace you.


Battlestar Galactica Daybreak – One Episode to Go March 14, 2009

The thin red line…wow.

Daybreak, Part 1 – what we are calling Season 5 Episode 9 (SciFi calls is Season 4 Episode 19) The second last episode ever of Battlestar Galactica was all about setup for the final and ultimate showdown.

Instead of Galactica going out with a whimper she will go out with a bang.

Instead of limping away to try and find a hiding spot for humanity.. Galactica will make one last attack against the Cylons.

It is as it should be.

The show will end will on big final battle to end all battles between the Cylons and the Humans and Galactica will go out in a blaze of glory with her guns firing into the Cylon beast.

Just awesome.

Not so sure about all the Caprica flashbacks in this episode – neat to see that Caprica 6 cared about Gaius’s dad..the other stuff…not so sure.

The red line across the dead was a brilliant dramatic angle for sure too.

And when did Tyrol end in lock-up? sure he belonged there but…

Hard to believe that after all these years we’re almost at the end – even harder to believe that the end WASN’T Earth but is something else…likely the death of the Battlestar Galactica itself and everyone on it.

Battlestar Galactica EVERYONE is a Cylon March 8, 2009

After some 80 episodes of Battlestar Galactica websg‘ve come to a conclusion –


The first three seasons we spent trying to find you who the cylons were…

We thought we had them all until Season 4 rolled around and we found about the final five.

Then we find all the final five but we still have other – cylons don’t we?

Starbuck for one right?

Then is Season 4 episode 18 Islanded in a Stream of Stars Roslyn has the dream with Hera in it again ..

Is President Roslyn a Cylon too then?

Going even deeper, Baltar calling out Starbuck as an ‘angel’ ..maybe Baltar is right?! Maybe all the colonies were in fact cylons and all can be resurrected somehow.

Maybe there is another planet that they’ll find at the end of the series in which all those that we thought were lost will be found again.

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 ep 8 Scuttle Galactica March 7, 2009

Isn’t the captain (in this case the admiral) supposed to go down with the ship?

What we’re calling Battlestar Galactica Season 5 episode 8 (SciFi calls this Season 4 episode 18 Islanded in a Stream of Stars
.. ) was another setup episode …we see the secret base colony that the Cylons have.

We still don’t know what Kara ‘Starbuck’ Thrace is, but now we know for sure that the ship on Earth with her dogtags was her – so somehow she was resurrected – with a resurrected ship too.

What about the dreams that Roslyn, Athena and Starbuck are all having and how are they linked? Is Roslyn some kind of Cylon hybrid just like Starbuck too?

With only a few episodes left until the final episode the building up is just amazing…

Battlestar Galactica : Daniel the Cylon is Starbuck’s Dad February 28, 2009

We’ve been saying here on ShowMeSciFi.com since January of 2007 that Starbuck is a Cylon. After watching episode 17 of Season 4 Someone to Watch Over Me ..we’re now as confident as ever that we were right!!

Starbuck’s Dad the piano player – was Daniel the Cylon. has to be..we know Daniel was more artistic and we know that his line got boxed which is why he never came back.

We learned about Daniel in episode 15 (called No Exit). This is what we here at ShowMeSciFi.com predicted last year – the FINAL FINAL Cylon is Daniel Graystone set to played by actor Eric Stolz in the upcoming Caprica prequel.

It all adds up now doesn’t it?

Hera isn’t  the only half-breed. Kara is the same.

How Kara will lead humanity to their doom? Guess that was Earth…

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 episode 7 (SciFi calls this season 4 episode 17  Someone to Watch Over Me

We thought Sharon Valeri – BOOMER – was actually good! that she had turned a new leaf..

even at the end of her life when she got shot by cali – it was just that there was one thing that she had no control over – so she shot Adama –

No such luck. Boomer is a baby stealing Bitch.

And poor Cheif Tyrol he has to go through the grief again and this time he helped her..and now Galactica is toast the ship will not hold together.

Will he tell Adama what happened? We think so – he’s an honest cylon but who else can keep Galactica together?

Ohh and Starbuck!! Her Dad was a Cylon then right? How else could that song trigger such a result?

Kara Thrace IS a Cylon – Human half breed she’s gotta be.  Daniel the missing number 7 cylon has to be her father.

Someone to Watch Over Me

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Liam is Dead February 21, 2009

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 episode 6 (SciFi calls this season 4 episode 16 Deadlock
) Hera is the savior of both the human and cylon races.

There is no other.

We’ve been guessing for years that Hera would be the savior and now there is little doubt that is the way it will be.

No this episode did not have the stunning revelations of the last episode – No Exit – but we do have some stunning developments.

Finally Baltar is relevant again – and for the first time in YEARS he has Caprica in his head again! Baltar was one of our favorite characters in the first three seasons – then he became less interesting – but now as the show winds down HE’S BACK.

Will the cylon goop end up busting Galactica? I sure think so…

Will the Cylon’s jump away? Not likely but before the end the other Cylons will jump back in for a massive battle royale the likes of which we have never seen.

Where cylons fight cylons and humans.

In Battlestar Galactica Season 5 episode 5
No Exit
(SciFi officially calls this Season 4.5 episode 15) we got a new intro to the show that is just frakkin awesome in 90 second it provides the best explanation of what has happened in the show thus far…

Our full review of the No Exit episode touches on the plot of this awesome episode – but the intro deserves its own special mention…enjoy.
This Has All Happened Before And It Will Happen Again
The Cylons Were Created By Man
They Rebelled
Then They Vanished

Forty Years Later They Came Back
They Evolved

Battlestar Galactica Season 5 Episode 5 No Exit – There is another Cylon model February 14, 2009

This has all happened before and it will happen again.

We got more insight into the Cylon in this one episode than we’ve had in the previous 4.5 years!!

Sure we knew Ellen Tigh was the Fifth but we didn’t know that the final five were actually the FRAKKIN creators of the hybrid human cylons! wow did not see that coming.

Between Eillen and John filling us in and Anders remembering on the other side – we get a near final picture.

And there is another.. An 11th cylon model – technically number 7 called Daniel.

This is what we here at ShowMeSciFi.com predicted last year – the FINAL FINAL Cylon is Daniel Graystone set to played by actor Eric Stolz in the upcoming Caprica prequel. How’s that for bringing things full circle!?

Sure we still don’t know what Kara Thrace is..

and we don’t know where Eillen went – likely her ‘research colony’ – but with five episode left we’re finally researching an ultimate conclusion that should be mind frakkin awesome…

and who want to bet that Galactica itself won’t survive?
(oh and John ‘I’m a PC’ Hodgeman lobotomized Anders – should’ve got a Mac to do the job !)

In honor of the final season of Battlestar Galactica this is a great year to put out a cylon pumpkin!

It’s not quite as hard as you’d think either – it’s a matter of sketching out the shape of the cylon helmet and carving it out. Then you just need the LED…well maybe it’s a little more complex.

Luckily there is a pretty great tutorial with full specs on how to put it all together – just check it out on Evil Mad Scientist


Eric Stoltz is the First (and final) Cylon! May 14, 2008

Casting for the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica is picking up pace. This week we found out who will play Daniel Graystone – creator of the Cylon.

Remember Stoltz from Pulp Fiction?

Considering the new God storyline of the Cylon in BSG…I think that Stoltz/Graystone will have a pivotal role in the final season of BSG too.

Just like Data on Star Trek (and remember Ron Moore steals his best ideas from Trek) – I’d bet the Cylon were created in the image of their creator.

Add one more item to the pre-season 4 Battlestar Galactica hype toaster..

With toaster being the operative word ..as in build your own Toaster and take over the…er..gain the respect and admiration of your friends and family…yeahh that’s it.

“Make” a Cylon: Use whatever you like: blinking lights for eyes, metal armor as a costume, toasters… anything to show the world that you’re a Cylon maker. The only caveat is that it has to be something physical (no Photoshop/art entries). Your Cylon can be of the humanoid or robotic variety, real or abstract, or anything else you can think of.

All you need to enter is post the image up in the http://www.flickr.com/groups/make/pool/ group and tag it “dvicemakecylon” . Sounds neat and we’ll let you know when we’ve got a few from ShowMeSciFi.com up in the mix.

Battlestar Galactica Razor Flashback #5 : The Lab November 4, 2007

“All this has happened before and it will happen again”

WOWOWOWOW. The flashbacks have all been awesome so far but this one really raises an incredible number of questions.

Adama stumbles onto a Cylon lab – obviously they’re experimenting on humans to try and make a biological cylon…or are they?

There is enough doubt and clues planted that the Cylon could very well have been biological beings to begin with..

The most curious line in the whole two minutes — all this has happened before and will happen again – was that just a voice in Adama’s head? the Fifth Cylon?

I don’t know…but I do know that these flashback – while only 2 minutes in length are excellent entertainment.

If you’re outside the US and don’t have the stomach for Flash BS – here’s the vid for your viewing pleasure..

Take that you Frakker!

WOW – first Adama wrestles with a classic era cylon while hurtling into the atmosphere in his space suit…

Then he crash lands through a window and beats the cylon to death with a steel pipe.

You gotta see this…

Where Are You Frakker?

Bill ‘Husker’ Adama

Battlestar Galactica Razor Flashback #3 is easily the best of the bunch so far with 2 minutes of non-stop action.

Classic Vipers take on Classic Cylon Raiders – in a word – AWESOME.

The actor player the young Admiral Adama is also very very good – and I for one would certainly pay to see a whole series – or movie – just dealing with this first Cylon war.

If you haven’t seen the preview yet (cause you’re smart and can’t stand Flash Gordon – which is easily the worst show ever produced by SciFi) here’s ya go…enjoy!
