In which I have thoughts about Battlestar Galactica  
I've been neglecting livejournal for tumblr these days but Battlestar Galactica has given me so many feelings that I need to discuss.

Someone please tell me the beginning of season three is some sort of joke. I honestly kept expecting them to pull some kind of wibbly wobbly timey wimey magic and take back the last five minutes of 2x20 because this can't possibly be right. BUT THEY DIDN'T. I hate time jumps. (I think Merlin can shoulder much of the blame for that.)

WHY DID EVERYONE GET MARRIED? Okay, I understand they're trying to make a permanent settlement and blah blah blah but still. A doomed shipper leads a life of ~pain, etc., etc. Mostly, I'm asking why did Lee and Dualla get married? I am befuddled. Or maybe I'm still smarting over the death of Billy/Dualla (and the death of Billy! DDD:)

Second, could someone please expand on the Cylons' motivations? Because I honestly don't understand why they're even bothering with the humans. I understand the initial attack but what is the point of continuing to follow them and then ~befriending them by installing a police state? It's nice that they regret the genocide of the human race but there's nothing to be done about it after the fact so they might as well enjoy the twelve nice planets they just acquired. Wait, was this explained when one of them said they didn't want the humans to retaliate generations later? Hmmm. This requires more thought than I've given it (which is to say, this requires thought in the first place).

Cylons remind me of a little kid trying to play with a cat by pulling on its tail and then not understanding why the cat keeps trying to bite them and run away. ...Wow, I am so ~poetic.

On that note, does Kara remind anyone else of Veronica Mars? At least in the way she deals with her relationships with men. Kara/Lee, specifically, reminds me of Logan/Veronica in many ways.

From 3x01 to 3x05, the only development I'm really genuinely happy about is Helo/Athena. Womp.

Also, Jamie Bamber in a fat suit is too comical to be believed.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. Thank you and good night.
