My favorite Faux Space Family begins its trek across wherever. Let's talk about:

- 33
- Water
- Bastille Day

Jacob never recapped this season, so there's a dearth of pith and wisdom out there and I feel like we can fix that. (Plus, "dearth of pith"? That was fun to say.)

So, "33". I like the whole premise of the episode. Great natural tension, the jump every 33. And I love how they resolve it – the Cylons tracking the Olympic Carrier. It's a really nice package: it furthers the point that the Cylons are tracking/infiltrating them, makes the humans feel even more vulnerable, and sets up an interesting dilemma for Roslin/Adama/Lee.
Definitely. Season 3 keeps bringing up things that I have seen in the miniseries and so far in Season 1. Overarching themes, I daresay. :-)

And one of them is the terrible choices leaders, civilian and military, have to make in times of war: Leaving a small group of actual human beings to die, or even directly kill those in the small group, so that the larger group -- the whole frackin' human race, in other words -- may live. It's the right thing to do, but that doesn't make it any less awful.

I like the way this is addressed in the Laura/Lee scene at the end of "Water."
