Because it just started to feel to me like they were believing their own press a little too much. And the stories were jumping up and down and going "Look at us! Look at how cool and EDGY we are!" And I was yawning a lot, and wondering why I continued to invite these people into my living room.

Then, for a little while there, it was starting to interest me again. And then there were the last 20 minutes of last night's ep, during which brainiacfive and I were doing our best impression of the Doctor in the last couple season finales. (Y'know, "What? What?? WHAT???")

There's such a huge steaming pile of WTF that I'm not sure I'd want to get into the whole thing even if it hadn't wiped out that tentative bit of caring about this show that had accumulated recently. But I just posted a comment to mrv3000 that I figured I'd port over here, mostly because it amuses me:

mrv3000: Cylons can procreate between models? Why aren't there more models then? Maybe Tigh's not really a Cylon after all.

It would make me so unutterably happy to find out that NONE of the Four-Out-Of-Final-Five are in fact Cylons, and that the whole thing has been one grand spanking mindfrak. Because dude, has the immediate, unquestioned assumption that they are pissed me off!

Is it very very wrong of me to be happy for Caprica Six? Because I swear she's the only character I still respect, and she has a serious baby jones.

Also, how much (more) is Athena's brain going to break when she figures out she shot the wrong Six?

In general: THIS SHOW IS MADE ENTIRELY OF CRACK. LACED WITH POP-ROCKS. PURPLE ONES.

Don't forget that the "final five" are special in a lot of ways - we know the Cylon models we're familiar with are not supposed to think of them or talk about them; we know that they're CERTAINLY not supposed to see them (D'Anna's big error), and we know that they're in some way connected to Earth. So I have no problem believing that what makes them unique is that they can procreate, among other things.

Oh, I know. I rather think it's a cheat, myself, mostly because I don't trust them to have a good reason for the FF to be Super Shiny Special In Whatever Way Is Convenient To The Plot Today.

If they do turn out to have a good solid storytelling reason, I'll be happy as a clam. But in the meantime, I'm firmly back in the "Yeah, sure, whatever" territory I've been occupying since the middle of last season or so. *shrug*

I certainly don't have any expecation that the four will turn out to not really be Cylons. It would just make me happy if they did, because it irked me that no other conclusion was even briefly considered. Which, maybe it's because the music flipped some awareness switch, I dunno. It's all just too murky for me to care.

I'm sorry you're not enjoying it; I think this whole season has been completely awesome. Last season had a lot of weak spots (probably the weakest season of the four, IMO) but I feel like they're firing on all cylinders now and every week gets my heart pounding. I'm bummed that you've lost that lovin' feeling. :(

It's not that big a deal to me, honestly. This season has been a lot less "Why am I still watching this again?", so I was actually starting to get a some of it back, and then this just blew it away. For me, too much feels like it's shock for shock's sake. I quit watching Lost for a reason.

Different strokes. :-)

Ron has said over and over again that the FF are Cylons, so. I'd love the mindfrak, but he's adamant, and unless he's just being an asshole... (wait....)

Yeah, I have no expectation of it whatsoever. It would just make me very, very happy. Just because the complete lack of considering any other possibility annoyed me so much.

I was very unhappy when she sot the six. I really didn't like that, but I can see it. I was wondering about the group considering themselves to be the final five. I never really believed they really were the final five until we saw the raiders scan the one guy and leave. To me that was the 'oh ok they really are the FF and not going to worry about it anymore" until now where they talk about one other being a cylon and not even knowing it. Hrmm. I didn't like the way the season picked up, it got better, but I do agree the last couple of shows have left me very very luke warm. They had damn well better have one hell of a an amazing last few eps to pull this off.

That would be nice. I'm not holding my breath, but it would be nice.

EH...

SIMIANS TRY HOLD ON TO END OF SEASON (AFTER HAVING ALMOST BAILED AT END OF LAST) BUT IS *REALLY* HARD. USED TO BE ONE OF 3-5 EPISODE WOULD BE OUTSTANDING AND RECHARGE BATTERY. BUT HAS BEEN LONG DRY SPELL...

NUMEROUS EYE-ROLL MOMENT LAST EPISODE: STARBUCK AS "VOICE OF REASON" QUESTION ADAMA'S MOTIVATION FOR MISSION (AFTER LAST CRAZY VISION QUEST)!?!? TIGH AND ADAMA "FIST-FIGHT YIELD DEEPER UNDERSTANDING" MOMENT!?!? WHOLE DANCE AROUND MAKE LEE PRESIDENT WHEN EVERY VIEWER KNOW WOULD HAPPEN ALL ALONG!?!?

AND THEN... GHOST-CAT!

BUT SO FAR AS CYLON-NESS VS MINDFRAK: AT LEAST TORY HAS SHOWN CYLON STRENGTH, AND ANDERS HAD "MOMENT" WITH RAIDER FEW EPS BACK.

TO SIMIANS, ENJOYMENT OF EPISODE TEND FOLLOW PROPORTION OF BALTAR SCENE. HOPEFULLY NEXT WEEK HIT PAYDIRT.

*snerk* I saw one person comment to the effect that "Gee, Kara and Tory both seemed awfully sane this week..." Not that we're exactly complaining, mind you, but HUH??
