DVR dimwit finally catches up with "Battlestar Galactica"

Well, I'm a complete idiot when it comes to working the DVR, and the Punster can't get the darned thing to work consistently, either. So today's marathon was my last glorious opportunity to catch up with this past fall's episodes. Thank heaven this show is moving to Sunday night--I don't ever want to watch television from 8 AM to 7 PM again!

Was the late Ellen Tigh a Cylon? Probably not. Is Baltar a Cylon? Probably not--that would be too obvious an explanation for his behavior. Will the planet get nuked? Probably not, if for no other reason than that french-frying half the characters would necessitate the replacement of a huge chunk of the cast. Heck of a cliffhanger, though. Also, I was sorry to see that pilot "buy it." She was one of the good guys, shady past notwithstanding, and it was a shame that she died. But at least she went out a hero.

Never let it be said that science fiction is just foolishness. How many television shows have posed this question--asked by both the humans and the Cylons--lately: If the only guaranteed way to save your people were to commit genocide against theirs, would you do it? The last place I heard anyone pose a question even remotely resembling that one was here and here.
