"Eight! There are eight..."

Predictions and Spoilers, One-and-a-bit Seasons In

Viewing friends S and K, who have not seen the show, are running side bets on who is a Cylon. Currently, S is determined to look at couples, with the references to procreation and love being deciding factors. He is insistent that Dee and/or Billy are Cylons, and he has suspicions about Anders.

They are also wary of knowing episode titles, especially in season 4.0 and 4.5. S says he will cry if he hears there is an episode titled "The One in Which Starbuck Dies," he just doesn't want to know.

Last viewing Jeff, D and I (we three know all that has happened before, and all that will happen again) tried to have a sidebar conversation about one of the characters without giving anything away to those who haven't seen the whole series. (This is really hard, as they both refuse even to watch the episode's mini-teasers and are determined to stay away from any kind of spoiler. Me, I like a little bit of a taste of what's to come. Not to mention, I usually forget the details by the time the plot point in question comes up...) The discussion came to a point where we couldn't even say the character's name without giving away too much, and I think we weren't all sure exactly who we were talking about. I can't wait to be able to comment without fear of ruining the fun for S and K!

We were astonished to see what little clips from episodes are shown on the menu screen of the Blu-Ray! We had to advise that S and K avert their eyes lest these frames ruin the surprise...

I am sad that we can't even share this fantastic and catchy You-Tube ditty - too many spoilers in the lyrics.... Oh, I love Battlestar Galactica...
