BSG Season 1 Episode 3 (Movie/TV Club)Posted: April 21, 2011
Hey a welcome to another day of movie club! Today we watched Bastille Day (S.1 Ep.3)
KEEP IN MIND IF YOU ARE READING THIS, YOU SHOULD HAVE WATCHED THIS EPISODE AS THIS POST AND COMMENTS WILL CONTAIN SPOILERS!
Bastille Day: Deciding to use the thousand prisoners on a prison transport ship to mine the ice on the planet they’ve found, Galactica’s plans are upset when a political prisoner onboard leads an uprising, taking hostages. He questions the legitimacy of Roslin’s government and demands free elections to be held in the fleet.
This episode is one that really shows why this series is/was so great. This episode is about needing prisoners to mine water out of a moon in space otherwise everyone is going to die BUT it is also about democracy and class warfare. In a new world is everyone equal? Can society go on? Is sticking with the rules the only way to survive? Do the old rules stick?
Also it might just be me but I don’t care about still on the planet Boomer. And thats saying something if you know how I feel about Asians.
And of course
Also if these get popular enough I may open a forum for it, but lets take it one step at a time.
And remember if you want to join movie club you can watch what we watch many ways but if you use Netflix.com/PhillyD you get a free month trial of streaming movies/tv shows and it helps us out here.
