Battlestar Galatica Freak

Right now I am addicted to Sci Fi's remake of Battlestar Galatica. If you aren't watching it you are missing out on one of the BEST show's on TV. The American Film Insititute selected BG as one of the 10 best shows on TV. So you say you don't like Science Fiction, trust me you don't need to know your temporal distortion from your jump drive to enjoy this show, it is all about that most human of things, emotions.


Right now we are in the middle of a show down between Admiral Cain (genocidal freak job!) and Commander Adama. I truly think President Rosslyn should have stepped in and pointed out to the Admiral that she is part of a CIVILIAN fleet and that their is a CIVLIAN government in charge, therefore she will take her orders from the Prez's office. But we all know she is dying so maybe she just doesn't have the energy to out bitch Cain.

But the truly creepy part if reserved for Vice Prez Gaius Baltar. You remember this character from the orignial, he got to sit in a very tall chair and talk to the glowing head robot who always said, 'By Your Command'. Well in the new series he is a squirelly genius who was unwittingly playing footsees with a cyclon. Which wouldn't be so bad, but said cyclon was hired by the good Dr. to work on the colonies defense grid which she of course compromised to her compatriots leading the the succesful destruction of the colonies and leaving our rag tag fleet of humanity trying to find a new home. But the good stuff doesn't end there, rather than feel conflicted over his relationship, said cyclon now lives happily in his twichy little mind goading him on and twisting him around.

So for those of you who have been watching here is my theory on Baltar. We know there are 13 copies of the human looking cylons, so far we have figured out 6. Baltar has to be a cylon, and when they nuked Caprica at the very beginning and #6 saved his life, she downloaded herself into his brain rather than having her conciousness downloaded into another copy of her body. Disagree with me if you will, but I think you will find this theory solid.
