It's a double header on the Resurrection Cast as we are joined by guest Nugget Conan to discuss Home parts 1 and 2. Nugget speculation abounds with theories flying left and right. We discuss cylon trust issues, Zarak's shady friends, inept CAG's, awkward moments, tombs, 6's ponytail, lower demons and we meet Petes new cat.
Feedback from Kelsey and Amberlee for Home 1&2
Oh - Hi guys! Miss you!
So - I find it adorable that Baby-Boomer is in Pythia :) And I think she's a total bad ass when she proves to Lee that she won't kill him in Part One. Squee! (Why are they making her a red-shirt so literally? Anyone expect her to be dead by the end of the episode? Visually, it is stunning - the gorgeous greens of Kobol with the greys of the humans and then Sharon in bright, bright red! It's just pretty. This episode/series is so pretty.)
I feel like Lee broke the rules. That Kara and Lee were in this weird awkward-lusty-siblings place and he took it to a bad place. Also - I'm on Sam's team. Straight up. And perfectly comfortable saying it. I'll make t-shirts. We'll confuse the hell out of the Twi-moms and start a new fad. Team Sam vs. Team Lee - where do you side?
OMG DEE IS MY FAVORITE CHARACTER EVER! I LOVE IT WHEN SHE IS THE INTERNAL MONOLOGUE OF ADAMA! SHE'S A FRACKING ROCKSTAR! I literally get weepy! I just love her! The most. Dee for fracking president."We're putting our family back together" and Dee's little face! Holy holy.
Can we talk about how Adama is referring to Roslin as "believing" and how they need to work forward with that in mind? Such an echo of Roslin referring to Baby-Boomer's belief in her love. I love that parallel! It's so clever. And so familiar - Adama has said the same thing before about the Cylons - that being in love is thinking that you are in love; that having faith is thinking that you have faith - everything is in one's own mind. It's all over the place, everyone is dealing with the belief of someone else - having to take that belief seriously and work according to the rules of that belief... I find it so fascinating. Because it is complex. We aren't dealing with facts - or even with who knows what information - we're dealing with the minds/opinions/beliefs of people. Which! IS COOL!
"We know more about your religion than you do." You TELL 'EM, girl!
"There is no chip" <- Melanie did you lose your mind?
"Topography's for pansies, anyway" CHIEF WINS!
Baby-Boomer and Helo for Couple of the Fracking Year! AREN'T THEY JUST THE CUTE?!?!?!
Also - their conversations about memories and things - Helo just takes it in stride. Boyfriend of the year. (I take it back - every conversation that they have is incredible!)
Also! BROWNIE POINTS to frackin' Kara for standing up for them - "He loves her" - you tell 'em!
Home, for me, seems to be a lot of the Female characters standing up and pushing buttons -> Dee, Kara, Baby-Boomer, Six, Roslin... HUGS ALL AROUND!
PARENT CHILD REUINIONS!!!! Okay - so who do you think won in terms of emotional depth? Roslin/Billy or Adama/Kara? My vote is always for Adama/Kara to win ALL THE THINGS!
Who else caught that Gaius flipped Doctor-Awesome off?
Oh!!!!!!!!! Helo's face when Chief walks up!!!! POOR HELO! JUST!!!! MEN AND THEIR FACES!
I really love the shot of Roslin and Adama talking and between them - in the background - is Baby-Boomer and Helo talking. I don't know why I love it so much, it's just PRETTY. And then how Roslin peeks over at the kids talking! SUCH GOOD PARENTS! (I'm so on mommy/Starbuck's team, though)
AND THEN! In the midst of all this discussion of belief and the things that you believe framing your Reality - there is Baby-Boomer with her very poignant display of Free Will - that thing that so far has defined the difference between Humans and Cylons suddenly doesn't exist anymore. If Baby Boomer can love - if she has Free Will - then is there any sense of difference? How do we define difference between them now?
Starbuck has fangirl squee in the tomb with the icons. And I find that endearing. She's also the one (other than Baby-B) that can just quote scripture out of the sky. I really love that about her.
When Adama claps - it scares me a little.
GAH! I hope you guys liked these episodes. I am very partial to all the emotional reunions and BabyBoomer being a BAMF and the Tomb of Athena is possibly one of my favorite mythos-scenes!
Miss and love you all!!!!
