Default Re: BG-02: Lost Planet Of The Gods

Watched the DVD of parts 1 & 2 ( yet again) while studying the minutiae in the course of writing a fanfic. Because Gundy does her homework diligently, even at this old age.

Random musings:

Lucifer's gold boots bring to mind "The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys". Which is a totally freaking groovy tune at 2am, in the dark, with a mellow buzz. I recommend Fleetwood Mac's "Hypnotized" in equal measure.

Adama was weaponed up on Kobol - nice to see Ben Cartwright wearing his sidearm.

You have to watch extremely closely, but I believe (and correct me if I'm wrong) Maren was wearing an ankle bracelet in the money shot of the female Viper pilots in the pressure suits.

Baltar: "I have been to the Cylon seat of power. It is in chaos". I love that line, but it also sounds like "a" Cylon seat of power versus "the". Cannot discern.

"Lieutenant, you obviously can't even stand". "The Viper is flown from the seated position, sir". Warriors - 'nuff said.

When I watched this on television at the tender age of 15, I was in love with Apollo & Serina being in love. Then Serina died and I bawled my eyes out. I still bawl my eyes out every time. Apollo's complete helplessness in having to let her go, literally shattered, then having to instantly man up to be strong for Boxey. Brutal, that. I'm bearing my soul on that one, folks.

This is in my top 5 favorite episodes.
