Hey casters! GMDB weighing in here. I don't know if this was corrected, but if you are referring to the scene in Office Space where the fax machine is beaten to within an inch of it's life, it's not Damn, It's Good to Be A Gangsta, that plays at a different time. And Audra, I'm with you. Tricia did indeed look kind of waifish and transparent and ethereal. Definitely vampiric. And probably intentional.

Chuck- That 2003 BSG game is insanely hard. My brother and I tried for 30 minutes to beat the first part of the first level and we couldn't do it. I've heard plenty of others say the same thing. A good little game that's cheap and sci-fi is either of the LEGO Star Wars games (one for each trilogy). Both are $20 (greatest hits) and solid games. They're easy platformers and the multiplayer is pretty fun. I was playing it the other day with my 6 year old cousin and he was having a blast. Chewie yanks arms out of their sockets, Lando does kung fu, Leia slaps, Han punches, etc. It's actually a very funny little game with good replay value. http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/826/826594.html

As far as Jamie Bamber and Tricia Helfer goes they may have been in scenes together in the first season, however that was Head Six and she obviously interacts with only Baltar. Did Shelly Godfrey interact with Lee? She certainly put the moves on Commander Adama. Come to think of it, Lee is probably the only male lead who hasn't either been kissed (Baltar, Adama, Helo) or punched in the kisser by Helfer (Tigh).

Chuck--re: your "80's feathered hair" comment from the podcast.... Great comment, but it should be "70's feathered hair." The show ran for one season in 1978-1979. Yes, there was Battlestar Galactica 1980, but Starbuck was not really in there, and it is TOO horrible to count. Love the podcast, you guys rock!

Supreme President Commander Kappa: You're right. I thought about that scene after I posted, but like you said, they didn't even get to speak to each other in that one. It was really all about Romo and C6. Lee was just observing, and was probably too busy hero-worshiping Romo to notice Six.



By: Kappa

Sun, 19 Aug 2007 04:26:55 +0000

Stroogie: Lee and Six *finally* had a scene together in “The Son Also Rises” when Romo sneakily convinces Six not to testify against Baltar. But I don’t think either one spoke to the other–it was all Romo and Six. Anyway, at least they were finally in the same room for once! Quizzes: Am I the first Roslin here? I was Roslin on one quiz and Adama on the other. Hmm...obviously I have aspirations to rule the entire human race that I never even knew about before...



By: Armando

Sun, 19 Aug 2007 01:56:48 +0000

Here, hear, snacktime! Helfer is so much more attractive in her regular clothes than the model get-up. Now, Lee in the napkin dress....hmm...



By: BoxytheBoxed

Sun, 19 Aug 2007 00:18:25 +0000

"Boxy, but you don’t need… Oh, never mind." thats debatable

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 23:50:20 +0000

re: Zarek's toadie being the Peter Pettigrew. bwahahaha! I got William Adama for the quizfarm quiz and Lee for the quizilla one. I've never found the regular Six to be all that attractive. I like her better as Ponytail Six and Gina after she's cleaned up, and especially when she's wearing glasses.



By: The Alpaca Herder

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 16:39:28 +0000

Armando: Watching video interview segments with Tricia Helfer outside the episode concerned also helped me come to that conclusion. Stroogie: ARGH! Considering the shape and size of Lee...that blue dress thought is frightening.



By: Stroogie

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 15:45:10 +0000

Ugh, Audra, I just got a mental picture of Lee in a blue dress. My fault for bringing it up, I guess. You know, we've never actually had a scene with Lee and Six interacting. I think Jamie Bamber even mentioned it in the round table podcast with RDM, that he and Tricia Helfer have never played a scene together. She's had her smackdown with Starbuck, and brief moments now with EJO, Mary McDonnell, and that great slapping bit with Tylon. After all this time, I hope they have something planned for her and Apollo. "I'm leaving you, Lee. The weight, the whining, the fooling around, defending Baltar, attacking the President, I could take all of it. But this dress is frakked up. You can't even walk right in heels. And you call yourself an officer."



By: Armando

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 15:30:42 +0000

I didn't see it that way at all, but I think it's a very interesting take. I also followed Alpaca's logic from the commentary track and assumed that Mrs. Helfer was simply acting more like herself in those scenes. Hmm...



By: The Alpaca Herder

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 14:17:24 +0000

Eftiel, Phoenix, Pike: Tracksuit Six? According to the commentary that is how Tricia Helfer normally dresses in real life. I would not necessarily say that Six was engaged in mimicking Katee Sackhoff's mannerisms. Such merely might have been a slight break in character.



By: Pike

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 03:26:13 +0000

Eftiel, interesting take. (and welcome, BTW) Now that you've mentioned it, I can't see it any other way. I have to wonder, if that was the intent, how that was handled in rehersal.



By: Phoenix

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 01:15:02 +0000

Welcome Eftiel! Yeah, thats my take too. I did a doubletake the first time I saw that scene-I thought it was Katee Sackoff.



By: Eftiel

Sat, 18 Aug 2007 00:24:08 +0000

Yea! My first ever post! Re: What's the deal with tracksuit Six? Six is imitating Starbuck in this scene. Watch it again. She's doing all of Katee Sackoff's mannerisms - the laugh, the faces, the body language. That's why she says "Is this what you want?" - because Baltar still has a thing for Starbuck. At least that's my take on it...



By: The Alpaca Herder

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 16:17:14 +0000

Audra: Perhaps this is why we later see Apollo asked what rolling the hard six actually means and he yet comes up with: "I don't know what it means."?



By: Audra

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 16:07:51 +0000

Phoenix: Nice.



By: Phoenix

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 15:58:37 +0000

Lee quoted his dad and said that sometimes you just roll a hard six. Maybe that's it?



By: Audra

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 06:14:58 +0000

Stroogie said: Maybe they both like to wear small bits of cloth. Lol! Napkin dress?



By: Number 13

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 05:08:40 +0000

Pike- Agreed. Boxy should stick with riding his daggit. I think it's rigged for Apollo. I got him too. Oh and to settle the question once and for all about whether or not Baltar is big or little "e"... well I found this picture on popular Star Wars artist Grant Gould's site: http://grantgould7.tripod.com/bsg/index.album/james-callis-grant-dragoncon-06?i=12 The man has glowing red eyes! How much more evil can you get?



By: Pike

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 04:28:43 +0000

Boxy, but you don't need... Oh, never mind.



By: The Alpaca Herder

Fri, 17 Aug 2007 02:57:09 +0000

Limited notes on the new trailer... First and foremost one must recognize that the editing is very tight on this. Secondly one must recognize that there is most certainly no sense of temporal cohesion. If the scenes were told in chronological order then Starbuck should not be showing up where she is so frequently. The big matter seen in the clips that aired during the Flash Gordon premiere is that we see some fleshing out of the background to Gina which came up in the two-parter named Resurrection Ship when Admiral Cain beat the crap out of Gina in front of Vice President Baltar. In the clips we see that apparently Gina was the perfect mole to possibly cripple the Pegasus but for Cain being very good at what she does. Of course, we also see Apollo offering somebody off-camerea XO insignia. We also see Starbuck arguing with somebody off-camera about some female being a loose cannon. Who each is arguing with is a matter we'll have to wait until Thanksgiving for the resolution to. In the end...I hope the GWC Three can take a quick look at the new commercial for the next podcast and also look at such in light of the notes from the previous trailer.

by the lords of Kobol Audra there are little kids here....if only i had a car then it wouldnt disturb me



By: Stroogie

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 20:26:21 +0000

Phoenix, Number Six was the next one down on my score list. Kind of odd...I'm trying to figure out what she and Apollo have in common. Apollo ranked high in loyalty and doing the right thing, while Six had a high rank for questions about religion and God. Maybe they both like to wear small bits of cloth.



By: The Alpaca Herder

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 19:52:49 +0000

GWC Three: Interesting. Armando as to Audra's towel reference: Agreed. :-)



By: Phoenix

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 18:39:08 +0000

I was a tie between Number Six and Apollo. I don't know what this means, but it somehow makes sense.



By: Stroogie

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 17:38:41 +0000

Ditto, Armando. I ranked as Apollo, and I'm keeping my towel on, thank you.



By: Armando

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 17:05:34 +0000

That's a mighty distrubing image there, Audra. :-)



By: Audra

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 16:29:56 +0000

I am Apollo on both quizzes. Yay! (Now, if I could just get this towel off...)

Pike, beer bender is awesome!



By: Tanu

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 14:38:06 +0000

The first quiz told me i was baltar and the second one told me i was number six. hmmmm.....

“Let’s go around the room and tell Starbuck the ways in which her drinking pisses us off. "Good idea, Helo! We're right behind you."



By: Chuck

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 13:57:17 +0000

Took the quiz. It thinks I'm Tom Zarek. I knew I liked that guy. :)



By: Armando

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 13:06:15 +0000

So Sean, does this mean we need to stage an intervention? (God, could you imagine THAT episode? "Let's go around the room and tell Starbuck the ways in which her drinking pisses us off.")



By: BoxytheBoxed

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 12:37:58 +0000

yeah i got Lee the second time and first...Baltar yeha, nice fiddy cubit put the beat down on cylon dwags



By: Sean O'Hara

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 06:08:15 +0000

Well I took the quiz and got SB Twice. Apparently I have attitude issues and like to beat people down a lot. Who knew? ;)

Hey Chuck. I bought the Mass Effect Novel and so far its very good. The man who wrote it also wrote Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic which was one of the best games of the year when it came out. The book is around 350 or so and its only 8 dollars at your nearest Borders. Title - Mass Effect: Revelation.



By: The Fair Melissa

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 04:07:57 +0000

I was Adama ("SO SAY WE ALL") on the quizilla and Chief on the quizfarm. I'd taken the quizfarm one once before, and I was Chief then, too. At least I'm consistent.



By: BoxytheBoxed

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 02:44:46 +0000

I took both, i ended up...Boxy, both times, its like a sick joke god is playing on me....Gods....even though Boxy wasnt an option.....yeah, thats awesome

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 02:42:34 +0000

Lee Adama, twice. Athena was a close second in the first quiz.



By: Battlestar Gigzlactica

Thu, 16 Aug 2007 02:30:37 +0000

took both of the quizzes... one has me as William Adama... the other as Lee. Hmmm.... does that mean i should get whiny and fight with myself?



By: Pike

Wed, 15 Aug 2007 23:30:35 +0000

Hmm. I'm an Adama. Some disagreement about which one, apparently.
