I just finished watching this online. Oh, man, it was awesome.

Yeah, I saw it coming from the previews all week, though. Tory with baby in arms, punching the board with Cally looking on all bloody and bruised... Yeah, I called it, but I didn't like it. I'm still hoping that the Cylons pick her up and thaw her out or something, but I'm betting that the actor just wanted out of the last season. Gods, but that sucks.

Regardless of all the emotional psych theories going around the BSG boards about Tory's motivations, it seems clear to me that she's just becoming what she is, a cold, calculating Cylon. It's Tigh and Tyrol who will have a problem with it. The rest of the skin jobs are having a right fine time, though, aren't they? Oh, the humanity! It's like crack!

Small criticism: Why would toasters and raiders have 'higher functions' that then would need to be damped? Why not just make them stupid in the first place? I forget what kind of artificial plot device that is, but it's amateur. And they really didn't need the "1701-D" reference. In-jokes are for comedies.

What in-joke? Apparently, I'm not in.

"Weapons locker 1701-D", an allusion to the Enterprise from the Next Generation.

Roger I think you emailed me but I accidently dumped it in a spam box deletion....it got there by mistake because your email is not in my address box.....so.....my email is rwsart@gmail.com....please send me yours and whatever the message was again....However, I know it is possiable that the email might have been Spam sent from some spam lord bearing your name which I will not mention here....if you did not send me such an email from youself that was not spam...forget about this message....these aren't the droids your looking for.....you can go about your business....move along....

yes if you are wondering I miss our late night visits....if you get out I would not shoot you if you were to throw pennys or quarters at my window round three in the morning...remember my windows are the second set fromt he porch.....just be careful its dark....at three...

Re: non-sequitor
What? You got spam with my name on it? That's creepy. I haven't sent any; I'm a terribly lazy friend lately. No longer needing to go out for cigarettes and all that. I miss our talks as well, but I had the nasty habit of getting drunk every time I went up there. I hope you'll forgive me, but I'd rather not tempt myself than try to fight the temptation.

Re: non-sequitor
and a little drink went a long way to make you a great conversationalist....although I think I really prefer that you be sober and I certainly for one would not lead you into temptation to drink....you know me. Mr. Sober for 15 years.

Everyone does not have a drinking problem and it is really your thoughts on that subject that matter. I would gladly take you to AA but they talk about GOD there. and you might also realize that many AAers were Atheists when they first arrived....AA is not a Cult nor is it a Relegion...it can't be a Religion because there is no Theology.....The Big Book of AA is merely Suggestions for becoming sober.. The frist suggestion is that you quit drinking for good.....complete abstinence......all that is required is a desire to quit drinking....I can't help but encourage you to come to a meeting even if you have reservations because unless you really don't want to have new friends you can find many in the fellowship ....well maybe many is only two or three or four that you might be very close too but these people are some of the loyalest friends you could ever have....it because we have all had somekind of BAD experience with Alcohol.

Roger, I hope I'm not making you angry with all of this but consider for a moment that AA allows you to create your own conception of GOD......I met a man once who believed in a higher power but refused to believe in the concept of GOD or that the universe had a Inteligent spiritual aspect yet he had been sober for 20years....In AA you meet all kinds of people who all believe in a different conception of a higher power.....if for example you believe Science is greater than yourself or perhaps knowledge in general there might be something there that could act as a fertile ground for belief....

I will now get off of the AA soap box and say nothing about it ever again unless you ask me. I hope I did not offend..Pookie

Re: non-sequitor
You didn't make me angry-I'm actually very close to laughing. I have never been one to drink on a regular basis and am far from being afraid of becoming an alcoholic. I just meant that I don't like getting drunk at all, because the injury to my nervous system leaves me a complete wreck when detoxing the next couple of days after. I don't get the headache-y hangovers that I did in my late teens, but more of the drained shakey feeling that old alchies get. Believe me, that's plenty bad enough when I just have one such night every couple of months, but I was going out a couple times a week for at least a year. Now, that sort of thing is exactly what leads to alcoholism, but I was able to cut it, and cigarettes, out pretty much with no problem. It's just the ease of getting both in overwhelming quantity up there on Berry St. that is the temptation. Down here in the neighborhood a mile away, I don't even think of it.

If I were to look closely for causes, I'd say that it's probably from missing the pot that I was practically swimming in throughout my twenties. I wanted the buzz to keep going, but alcohol and cigarettes just aren't worth the trouble. And Frogs might be cute, but they're not that cute. ;)

Re: non-sequitor
like I said the "problem" aspect of drinking is largely a matter of personal assessment and having the ability to be honest with oneself.....warren our guitar playing friend is not an alcoholic....he is a drunkard....he knows this...he is not offended.....even AA makes such a distinction between the real alcoholic and those who can "get on the wagon" without a problem. but let's look at some of my friends! I have one friend who downs his ridilin with cheap beer and takes his major tranquilizers with vodka.....he does not have a problem....my brother just swims in the stuff but claims, "I'm in control of my drinking!"

I wasn't really implying that you were alcoholic Roger, however I think I was really hoping you might want to paint yourself as a zebra so you could come hang out with the zebras. All that is required is a desire to stop drinking. You would meet some interesting people...

In 1986 when I entered AA for the first time I did not believe I was an alcoholic......Roberto

Re: non-sequitor
Robert, I haven't had a drop of alcohol or a full pack of cigs for several months. I'm fine. The last thing I need is to join a group of people whose purpose would be to tell me how to overcome a problem I don't have. Then I would need a drink. ;)
