BSG Season 1 Episode 2 (Movie/TV Club)Posted: April 20, 2011
Hey a welcome to another day of movie club, or technically the first day here on SourceFed.
KEEP IN MIND IF YOU ARE READING THIS, YOU SHOULD HAVE WATCHED THIS EPISODE AS THIS POST AND COMMENTS WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS!
As President Laura Roslin makes a ceremonial visit to the Galactica, several explosions occur in the battlestar’s potable water tanks, venting the bulk of its vital water stores into space. Shortly before the explosions, Boomer, a Cylon sleeper agent with no conscious awareness of her status, comes to consciousness in an equipment room, soaking wet, with a bag of explosives at her feet. She and her lover, Chief Galen Tyrol, who believes Boomer is being framed, suppress evidence suggesting her involvement as the sabotage is investigated. Adama concludes there is at least one humanoid Cylon aboard the Galactica.
As the Galactica desperately searches for replacement water supplies, Boomer’s Raptor detects water on a nearby world. She initially fails to recognize the sensor reports, but regains control, reports the discovery of water, and discovers another explosive device aboard her ship.
Adama and President Roslin direct Dr. Baltar to complete the development of a system to identify humanoid Cylons; Adama assigns Lt. Felix Gaeta to assist him. Roslin appoints Lee Adama to be her special military liaison and advisor.
On Caprica, Helo and the second humanoid Cylon in Boomer’s form pick up a Colonial signal from a nearby city, suggesting that there may be other survivors on the planet.
This episode was really fun to me because you start bouncing around the idea of “Who can I trust?!” I mean we all know you can’t trust the Boomers and Boomer (On the Gallactica) knows something is wrong, but seems to be fighting with herself. THE STRUGGLE WITHIN RAWR!!!! And you’re left kind of rooting for her when she finds the water.
I think Baltar is very cool in this episode. You really see that while he is out of his mind he is also extremely smart and manipulative. AAAAAAND Number 6 is GORGEOUS and fantastic in general as always. I still remember when she hugged me :-p mmm a good day.
Anyways, I’m glad newcomers to the series and rewatchers are enjoying it as much as it seems.
