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.)

Roslin swallows that sputter of rage and decides that she needs “advice on the military” from Lee.
And when that does come up later (I think this is the context, Lee pointing out what Roslin is asking him to do; I can't go back to the DVD because I already returned it) ... she says "I appreciate the complexity of the issue ... and I won't let that happen." (She says this to Lee, right?) Regardless of the listener, I'm sure of what I think the translation is: "You're going to do this. Don't make me give you a direct order."

Roslin is so subtle, yet so strong. On second viewing, I'm thinking more about how her terminal cancer informs her character.

Tangent: I watched a little VMars last night with my sisters. Keith (Veronica's single dad) had a chance to start an affair with a woman, but told her it wasn't wise. On the way home, his car is hit hard, but he's ok. He immediately goes back to the hotel and sleeps with the woman.

Not a new concept, but I think Roslin's cancer, the holocaust and the dire situation they're in have galvanized her in a way. In flashbacks (more of which you'll see in the future) she's strong, but more tentative and deferential. Post-Apocalypse Terminal Roslin can really see the right answer and then focus like nobody else.
