BSG - Battlestar Galactica - Jan 23 episode - spoilers
Didn't see any threads on this...

Some more big news tonight - Tyrol is not the father of Cally's baby. Some heretofore unknown guy was.

Nice job by Adama getting the info on the missing Tilium ship from Zarek without resorting to torture.

Some big events are being set up, as Zarek had the council voting almost unanimously against any cylon help, and then Zarek joining with Gaeta, who is looking to be a leader in the rebellion/revolution.

1. Love Doc Cottle, but his nurse sucks.
And Kara rocked: And in case you are wondering, I will definitely hit a cripple.

:rofl:

2. It was a good episode, if not quite as action packed as last weeks
I like Doc Cottle, he is a really good character.

I am wondering about the revelation that the baby was not Tyrol's. It seems very odd, and out of place, and I know the creators dont do things by mistake, or for the hell of it.

3. I've been wondering about that, because if the baby was Tyrol's, what
would be so special about Hera?

8. I thought it was a bit cheap
the revelation that it's not a human-cylon hybrid.

6. Yeah, why cycle back to the Tyrol/Callie thing
To me, this episode dragged after last week's. But then, I'm impatient. ;)

I'm also thinking now that Starbuck is not a younger Ellen, but Ellen & Tigh's child.

13. and
I had meant "unknown" in terms of I had not seen him on the show before, unless he'd been around in the same role but the part was very minor?

15. He's been "HOT DOG" for the whole series
Lurking in the background and pouncing on unsuspecting female crew chiefs

What-a-guy!

18. Wasn't Hot Dog on the Galactica...
... when it jumped away from New Caprica? He was the Viper pilot shown launching from the Galactica as it plummeted through the atmosphere in Exodus, Part 2.

Was Callie pregnant before the Cylons showed up by surprise?

19. The intro was a little spooky...
seeing "in search of a home called Earth" replaced by "in search of a home".

The Tigh & number 6 baby thing is a little fishy.
And poor Gaeta--Jeez he's been fucked over good.

20. Agreed on Tigh/6
They're happy, and happiness doesn't tend to last on the show. I kept expecting that nurse to take some sharp medical device and plunge it into 6's stomach.

25. and, I'm thinking
Gaeta's probably not going to make it to the very last 10-15 minutes of the last show.

23. Hotdog has been on quite a bit...he was one of the first new Viper pilots Starbuck ripped into in
season....one? Two? In any case, his nickname fits.

24. Thanks
I guess because the seasons, or half-seasons, have been so spread out, I haven't been able to keep track of all the characters.
