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.)

The Lee/Kate confrontation on the flight deck was kinda hot.

(Kara) Yes, that’s how I like my incestuous tension, my friends. She rips him a new one, and she’s right. He’s steaming. Until they crack up. “Do I have to smack you on the mouth?” guh. And she crunches the pills --- that’s Kara: always in your face. And sometimes it’s hot. Chief’s reaction is priceless.

-- The walls filled with the pictures of the missing. I think it was a good choice to have Dualla be the one to walk into that area. Kandyse McClure is petite, so when it's her walking in there -- then the camera pulls back to reveal the magnititude -- she seems to represent the frailty of humankind. (Not that Dualla's not tough. She's just tiny, you know?)

Yeah, that's a good point. ('d never thought about the choice to use her and how that helps the scale of things. I always liked that they didn't get a reaction shot from her, just watched her walk into the hallways of photos, which gets bigger and bigger.

-- The whiteboard, upon which Laura tabulates the number of the living, reminded me of how much the 9/11 death toll kept shifting. But the number means everything, really, in both instances.

Yeah, good point. The whiteboard, as you can see, is the whole ballgame to Laura. And she has the added pressure of wanting to see that number stable or rising, and wanting to get those people in a protected place before she dies.

Why do the Cylons come every 33 minutes? Because they're trying to finish off the humans, and logic says they'll be easier to finish off if they're exhausted. So say I. :-)

I have always assumed that it took exactly 33 minutes for the Cylons to find and jump to the location of their beacon or communicator or whatever it was on the Olympic Carrier. It's just the fastest they could ever get there. As Cylons, it's not like it took 33 or 42 or 37 minutes, always 33.

I *love* that scene. The best part is the salute she gives him after she takes her stims like a good little soldier. Sort of respectful, but mostly mocking, because she's Kara and he's Lee, and, well, you know.

And his tone when he asks her if he needs to smack her in the mouth - just a *touch* lower, a bit softer....guh.

This is from Strega's review on TWoP:

Credits. That was a long, long teaser. Nine minutes, counting the "previously"s. Which, if you assume the episode is the standard forty-two minutes long, means the rest of the episode is...they're cute bastards, aren't they?

I checked. She's right. They're very cute bastards. :-)
