    Wow! I'm of the opinion this would have played better mid-season last year, but it was worth the wait!

    Here's a surreal moment though ... Anyone catch the first Quizzno's commercial?

    "It's just been revealed that Gina and Admiral Caine were lovers. This segment brought to you by Quizzznos. Mmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmm, mmmmmmmm mmmmmm, mmmmm." :lol:

    I'm not sure what was up with the quizznos commercials. There were a few of them. I'm happy with the episode, but found it kinda hard to follow.

    Having watched twice before, I paid more attention to the Sfx's and sound...PQ seemed to be not quite up snuff with last nights Season 3 episodes...but that could have been me. All in all it rocked!

    I liked it a lot, especially seeing the old Cylons. I wish they'd had more interaction between Cain and Six after it was found out Six was a Cylon. It did shed new light on Cain's death, though.

    The worst thing about this "episode" was that it just left me wanting more. March seems like such a long time from now.

    Yes, it was very cool to hear "By your command" after all these years. :)

    No, it was a director's decision. The "current" story (with Starbuck and Lee) was crisp and clear. The flashbacks to earlier Pegasus were grayer and softer. A color cue to help you figure out what was past and what was present.

    Never understood why the current tin versions don't say that to the Spylons. Why did they take vocal away from them? Spylon arrogance?

    Towards the end of Razor there was an ad for next season and it said "Coming in March."

    They probably communicate by RF.

    Now we know why Cain was so hard on Six. Nothing worse than finding out your lover is a Cylon.

    Starbuck said when they were going into the Cylon base "Isn't it grand when a plan comes together!" That was a tag line from The A Team with the original Starbuck "I love it when a plan comes together!"

    I too thought it was a pretty good episode & it did leave you wanting more.I loved seeing the old centurions.I always thought they were pretty cool looking.And the old raider ships were great to see again.I wished they kept them.

    I missed the show, any idea if it will be on again? I tried doing a search and only old BSG were showing up on the HR20.

    Being a lunatic doesn't hurt either. This is the woman who shot a subordinate officer because he refused to follow through on a morally wrong order.

    Not only was he a subordinate, but he was her XO and apparently her friend! They clearly established that earlier when the XO invited her to take shore leave with his wife and kids, saying how much they would all love to have her visit them.

    She was truly a piece of work, and more surprisingly, Bill Adama at the end of the movie said that after looking at her logs, he didn't see that he would do things much differently than she! (Or did he say he couldn't fault her for doing what she did? I don't remember now.) Either way, how surprising was that acknowledgment from Adama about how history may have a different view based on the logs?

    Here's another thought: Were we supposed to recognize the faces of the man and woman peeking through the door at the Cylon base when young Bill Adama tried to rescue them? At first I thought the guy was going to be Tyrol or Anders, because after seeing the "lab", I thought maybe as two of the original 5 Cylons they were humans who were "copied", but then I didn't see a good enough resemblance...

    Were you on the SciFiHD channel? I recorded it in HD on my HR20-700.

    Razor was great, it explained a lot. I will have to watch it two or three times for it to "sink in."
