*agrees with Aaron...I mean I live right across the border and can't even download SGA from itunes...which means all of you living in the States are currently watching/downloading it to watch and I have to wait till Monday when it airs on movie channel....

I'm happy thta they have really grabbed my atention and it makes me want to keep watching it but like when the killed off Daniel in sg1 i asked myself.. "WHY?" It was a total shock... never saw it coming.

Unfortunatley i'm on a flying visit today, had some friends show up out of the blue and now i'm in a mad scramble to get this place organised for them to stay. Going to be fun! Sooooo glad i finished watching season 3 last night!

Right i'm back....
i made i silly mistake, I forgot i had one more disc to go. So i saw Kara again. Phew! But the chief! The colonel!!! OMG!!!!! I want the next season damnit!

Whose the fifth and final one? Dollars to doughnuts i reckon it's either Adama or The President. But thats probably just wishful thinking.

Hmm. I've been thinking about it and I was thinking Kara... but she's not like the others. There's something different and special about her. I don't think it would be The President because she had cancer. I don't think it's Bill because otherwise his sons would have been the first half-breeds (not Boomer/Helo's baby, Hera) We've already seen enough to convince us that Baltar isn't one, unless that whole plot was intended misdirection. If there was another 'planted' Cylon on the Galactica, he/she would have showed up in the room, right? So, then, who else might it be? Did you see Razor yet?

Your absolutey right. Forgot all about Lee.
Maybe the 5th one didn't hear the activation "music" code and is still oblivious..... The possiblities, oh boy......
No i haven't been able to get time to watch Razor yet cos of my friends here at the moment. It's just been totally crazy. As soon as they are gone i'll have a look.

I was giving Baltar more thought. If it's not Kara, then I think it's Baltar. Right now I would have to flip a coin to decide. The arguement for kara is that the cylons wanter her... very badly. She was the key to them being able to reproduce on their own. If she was the first sucessful breedable cylon (a unique, one of a kind model that is only known to those from the ship we was 'born' on) and they didn't even realize she was Cylon until she was caught and examined at the "Farm". She has visions and knows things she shouldn't, She survives things she shouldn't, she never got pregnant with her husband, she seems to be the fullfilment of prophesy

There's lots of other things too but I can't think of em right now or they are from Razor and I don't want to spoil it for you.

Now, for Baltar - All the talk about 'Six' and 'their baby'... the 'first cylon-human crossbreed' but as much as Six and Baltar had sex, she never got pregnant. Now, of course, there could be natural reasons (he's shooting blanks?) but the fact that cylons CAN NOT reproduce makes you wonder if he isn't a Cylon. There's been all the talk about 'is he' or 'isn't he', no one really answered his questions. Is his 'cylon test' foolproof and did he really take it himself? Is HE a special breed? He wasn't on Galactica when the music was calling to the others. In the first part of the show, we just thought he was delusional because of his 'fantasy' six, alwasy present, always guiding him or taunting him. BUT then we find that Six has a Baltar doing the same for her, so the question must be asked - are they 'relaying' on a subconscious level, the way Cylons can 'dream'? I think the biggest thing AGAINST him actually turning out to be a Cylon is his God0-complex. He wants it too much so I can't imagine him getting it. Of course, we are asuming that the final 5 inlcude the 4 who gathered at the end of the season, right? SO, the 5th we also are assuming is someone we don't suspect or thought was eliminated as a possibility. What if the 5th was someone we've already known - D'Anna perhaps? They shut her down before she could say what happened. ARGH!! There's SO MUCH!!!

"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth."

"No reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

I know!!!! The possiblities are almost endless with the way the writers have done the story line up.... Yoy wouldn't happen to know who sang that song at the end of the show wouyld you? I search for it and i keep coming up with Wolfmother but i know that particular song, since i have it, great song too. MAybe it has a different name to it.....

I reckon Baltar is just suffering from God-complex. simple. He is a man with dreams of granduer. He may be smart but he is just plain and simple arrogant man. But then again.... Arrrgh! I just want to find out.

"All Along The Watchtower"was writen by Bob Dylan but has been performed by lots of groups. Some interestings facts about the season cliff hanger:

Crossroads Wiki wrote:The song and lyrics that Tory, Tigh, Tyrol and Anders hear is Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower", as adapted by veteran series composer Bear McCreary. The vocals for this version are performed by McCreary's brother Brendan McCreary, aka Bt4, with former Oingo Boingo guitarist Steve Bartek playing various guitars and sitars.[1] There is no explanation given in the show as to why this particular song is heard, nor where it comes from. According to a conversation McCreary had with Ronald D. Moore, the version heard in the episode is meant to have been recorded by a Colonial artist rather than by Bob Dylan himself.

Ronald D. Moore has confirmed that Tigh, Tyrol, Tory and Anders really are Cylons, albeit "fundamentally different" ones. [2]

Sweet!!!!!! I was looking up the wrong name for the song. Didn't realise the song they were humming was the same song at the end of the season. So going onto lime wire to look for that now.

Raven, i don't know how many times i keep saying this but you are an absolute treasure.
