BSG catch-up: through the end of season 1

Honestly, my thoughts during or after nearly every episode of Battlestar are basically, "GODDAMMIT, BALTAR, YOU HAD ONE JOB. ONE. JOB."

This post is a mess of spoilers for season one of BSG, so if you haven't watched it, I have now warned you about that.

Starbuck just keeps getting more and more hardcore. That whole thing with the alien ship? I was really worried that she was going to be rescued by Lee in something straight out of Dudley Do-Right, where Snidely Whiplash is a Cylon. Yes. I just made that reference. Okay. Moving on. Anyway, Starbuck is the coolest, and keeps on being cool. Pretty much all the time. Except for when she slept with Gaius, because, seriously dude? You can't see the fifty thousand ways in which that is a terrible idea? You don't spend 90% of your interactions with him rolling your eyes? BUT YOU DO THOUGH, WHY DID YOU SLEEP WITH HIM. I guess we have all made mistakes.

Further, I am really upset about everything involving Sharon. First question: can Cylons be pregnant? Because that would suggest that they can age (cellular division, ladies and gentlemen) and we have seen no indications that there are any Cylons outside of like, 28-40. And all of them, even the billion creepy naked Sharon clones, are exactly the same age as all the other ones. So there's no logical reason why, if they don't age, that they should be able to reproduce. Is Caprica-Sharon on pregnancy mode to save her from Helo killing her or something? I'm very confused by the mechanics of this.

Also, my reaction to the end of the last episode of the season, where Sharon shoots Adama, was much more like SHAAAARON NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO than it was ADAMA NOOOOOOOOOOOO because I assume Adama's gonna make it through this but I don't think Sharon will. I guess Caprica-Sharon will? Because nobody there knows that she just tried to kill the commander. BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BABY THAT MAY OR MAY NOT BE GENETICALLY FEASIBLE?!?!

Anywho. There's a hurricane approaching New York, so I'm going to find all of my candles and whatnot. Eventually I'm going to write a post about religion in BSG, because it's pretty interesting. But I'll need to actually think that one out, unlike pretty much literally every other post I've ever written.
