Watched Battlestar Galactica: Razor last night. I was a little underwhelmed, but overall was giddy just to experience some new BSG stuff. This Kendra Shaw didn’t really do it for me. Her dead eyes and Angelina Jolie method of acting annoyed me. Although, we do get to see the crap that Admiral Cain pulled on Pegasus after the initial attack. Although is was supposed to take place within the BSG timeline, doncha think that she would have been mentioned in the other eps? I guess that’s the beauty of being a writer, you can really do whatever the hell you want.
Okay, I guess I got what I wished for- some gay characters on the show. Are you surprised that Admiral Cain is a lesbian? Number Six, you little mynx. However, is the betrayal the whole reason why Admiral Cain got completely fascist and ordered the killing and pillaging of the civillian fleets? Because she was a lover scorned? That is kind of what we are led to believe. Also, I wonder of this Number Six was ordered to seduce Admiral Cain to obtain access to the network, just like she was ordered to seduce Gaius Baltar to get access to the defense mainframe. If so, that irks me. Her main weapon is seduction, which really cheapens her character because she kicks ass in personality (and ok, usually looks fierce in her outfits).
Speaking of kicking ass, loved the centurions. And the talking to each other in Daft Punk-esque voices. Young Adama? Pretty hot. Weird old man hybrid? Pretty creepy. About Starbuck being the harbinger of death, that wasn’t really shocking information. Downsides: Michael Trucco in the credits, but where was Anders? Also, the only appearnace of Baltar is of him standing with a group of people looking pensive. I want more! [In the previews for Season Four, it seems that he has some sort of healing power. If one more show goes the X-Men, 4400, or Heroes rout, I’ll scream.]
