I aint really a shipper for anyone. And Starbuck/Apollo I don't really like. What with Kara being the fleet wide bike that she is. lol

I myself am as strong a Kara/Lee shipper as I am a Royai shipper. And that`s pretty strong. biggrin.gif I also kinda like Helo/Boomer...

^^ I like having this on/off sexual tension between Apollo and Starbuck. Right now, Apollo sort of wants it, but Starback isn't hot with the idea, I think.
But, they are trusted friends/buddies and I think they care for each other, as well as having huge respects for each others' skills and each others' characters (Starbuck has guts, and Apollo is more ordery,) tho they don't act like they do. happy.gif

Tonight's episode: "Black Market" - Episode #213.


I'm watching it right now. I'll post my thoughts later. smile.gif

Watched the episode....
Wow, that was intense.
Let's see...
Apollo is still hung up on that "floating in the space" experience, Dee is still hung up on Apollo, meantime Apollo sort of tried a relationship with a "professional" women while investigating a murder incident by blackmarket-running gang. (The chubby commander of Pegasus was the one who got murdered.. that was another quick departure!!) and so on.

I need more time to sort out, and I'll post my thoughts later. happy.gif

I finally saw ep 14. Instead of the emphasis on military and political matters, we get a sense of the intrafleet economy, which I think is a nice change of pace. And I suppose Apollo is a major enough character to warrant an entire episode on how he's dealing with his near-death (well, nearer to death than usual) experience.

The thing with Dee caught me off guard. I thought something was up when she was standing just outside the room while Lee and Kara we talking in episode 13, but I didn't think her attraction towards him were that apparent in previous episodes. Or maybe I'm just not very observant when it comes to these things. tongue.gif

Did anyone else think it was hilarious that everyone knew about Apollo's, er, indiscretion?

I`m watching the newest episode right now. Heh, it`s funny how the cylon raider (is that what they are?) that they`re hunting is called "Scar". rolleyes.gif

@mei_tenshi - Yeah, so much for Lee's "indiscretion" laugh.gif
And, I think Dee got this idea of there's something between the two while Lee was teaching Dee boxing.
Personally, Dee should stick with that cute assistant of Madam President, IMO. rolleyes.gif

*Waving "hi" to AndroidLust*

Yeah, I'm just about to catch tonight's show (second showing... missed the first showing.)
I saw the preview, and I had the ohmy.gif reaction when Starbuck said "Scar"!! biggrin.gif

Tonight's episode: "Scar" - Episode #215.

I'll be back after watching the show!!
Ok, I'm back!! And, it was another good episode!!
Tho, kind of bitter sweet.

Quick summary:
Last week, we saw Lee in pain, him kind of searching for meaning of his current existence.
This week, we see Starbuck in pain, of leaving that love-boy registance leader Anders behind (to die fighting) on Caprica.
She gets drunk every night, her performance as the leader is sub-par, and crash with hot-shot hot-head upcoming chick pilot Kat, who has her own demon (drug addiction.)
(Then the two get in "kat(cat)-fighting" tongue.gif )
Meantime, Cylon raider ship named Scar stalks and shoots down Coloniel fleet's pilots one by one...
Evenually, Lee orders Kara and Kat to go patrolling, and they got Scar, but it was Kat who shot down Scar.

And my thoughts:
I think, after they got the map to Earth, they should have gone and rescued those registance fighters. I was a bit surprized they didn't, and left those fellow humans behind.
So, yeah, I can see Starbuck's pain.
And, I think fatigue is setting in on everyone, of fighting day-in, day-out.
Interesting interactions between Starbuck and Apollo. I really think Apollo cares about her.
The last scene of Kara naming all the fellow dead pilots, despite her claim previously to Lee that she doesn't remember names of those who died, that was a good scene. Maybe a bit cheesy, but I liked it.
The rivarily between Kara and Kat continues... interesting.
The flashback story telling style was kind of confusing. I didn't think that many going back and forward had added much merits to the storytelling.
But, it was a good human story-telling kind of episode, and I liked it.
Hope Starbuck gets back to her spiffy self!! happy.gif



Next week seems more "happening" oriented episode. Can't wait to see it!! smile.gif

I FINALLY saw "Scar"--I'll be a week behind for a while...darn school and the work it entails. dry.gif

Anyway, another awesome episode for character development. Everyone's falling apart--kinda depressing, but oh so real.

I agree. It was beautiful. *tear* (Really, I was about to cry at that point.)

@mei_tenshi - I know what you mean!! It was touching!! smile.gif
I have also been busy, and I can bearly keeping up with the show at the moment.
I missed the first showing of tonight's episode, and catching it now on second showing, and also recording it in case I get distructed during airing. biggrin.gif

Tonight's episode: "Sacrifice" - Episode #216

Oh, my god, that presiden't assiatant/love-boy of Dee just proposed to Dee, and Dee TURNED it down!!!

Anyway, I'll be back later with my thoughts. smile.gif

Ok, I'm back, and that was another suspenseful episode!!

(Tho, I got distracted to do other stuff in the middle, so I'll watch that part on taped one later.)

Thank you, Tombow! It was much appreciated. happy.gif

I like how the engineers get their time in the limelight (sort of). How often do we see the people behind the scenes? Without them, the battlestars would indeed just be "buckets."

[spoiler]I had a feeling Apollo would take over Pegasus, especially when the last capable commander was Kane (and there's no denying even she was a little psycho). And the gods forbid Tigh would step in--again. ph34r.gif Though of course this opens all new opportunities for grief against Admiral Adama. Nepotism would be a biggie. That can't be good for the upcoming election.

Speaking of the election...that slimey, self-serving muck of a VP! I had hopes that he might turn out semi-decent, but noooo...he had to listen to his quite-possibly-imaginary fantasy woman and a convicted terrorist. Genius.

I'm really glad Apollo and Starbuck were okay. I was afraid they wouldn't be, the way things seemed to be going.[/spoiler]

I was lucky and caught someone on the P2P hub who had "Captain's Hand." happy.gif

Neat-o. I like how this episode showed (yet another!) perspective.

It surprised me that Six had her own fantasy!Gaius. It just goes to show what a...unique...relationship they had. Especially since both of them imagine their fantasy lovers to be filled with such sarcasm. But I guess it's the reflection of their respective guilts for nuking humanity.

The next episodes should be interesting, as the two Cylon "heroes" seem like they're ready to stir some trouble for the Cylons on Caprica. I don't think they'll join the Resistance, per se...not immediately, at least. I think they'll utilize their "hero" status to start somethiing from within.

Poor Sharon...sad.gif
