The road for Helo is paved with good intentions

What bothered you most about the latest Battlestar Galactica -- the Hippocratic Oath reference, Chip-Gauis, or that the catastrophic decision-making processes of Helo, who was finally right about something, will now continue unchecked?

What bothered me most is that I can't frackin' believe I forgot the show moved to the kill zone of programming: Sunday nights at 10:00 pm. I missed it. Kept scanning Friday night's schedule wondering when the hell it's coming back on.

Yeah, I know. What a loser.

Didn't miss a lot. This was one of those "timeout from the whole cylon vs human thing for a sensitive, lesson-teaching story" episodes.

Basically Helo defied everyone on the ship to expose a popular doctor who was in fact killing a conscientious-objecting sector of the human population. In other scenes, Six was visited by the version of Gaius only she can see. But this time, she was secretly observed by the president who can't figure out why this cylon is talking to herself.

I kept waiting for the doctor to be outed as a mutant. Oops, wrong geek universe, sorry.

As soon as Gaius showed up in Six's cell/head, my mental jukebox cued up Peter Frampton's "I'm in you, you're in me." Also, thank the gods she wasn't doing the air kiss with tongue.

MTLB: Check the sci-fi web site schedule. They rerun BSG eps like they were infomercials. Or Law & Order.

Thanks MM, although now I'm going to go and listen to 'We Built This City' just to cleanse that Frampton song out of my head.
