That was the second episode of V, Barbara.

Yeah, that "of peace" phrase is weird as well as grating.

Hm, then last night was the third episode, and the season finale is next week. A four-episode season?

It's not the whole season. There was a break in filming, and the season is supposed to resume in January.

The viewing numbers started out high and have dropped every week since then, so the show's future is a bit iffy. But so far as I know, it's still supposed to return in January.

We watched The Plan and liked it a lot. Rather like the show, the first half was the best; it meandered a bit after that.

If you haven't watched the whole series, the movie won't make much sense. It's background and fill in, rather than a standalone.

Also, it doesn't present or explain the famous plan. Rather, it shows the conflicts within the Cylon leadership regarding the attempt to exterminate the humans.

Some outtakes from the series were used in The Plan, such as the bit with Starbuck. I was expecting more in the way of build-up, of picturing what led up to the rebellion. But it certainly is watchable, same ambience as the series.

I finally got around to watching The Plan, and while I wish it had started earlier in the story, showing more of what led to the plan of genocide, I did like it a lot. That final scene with the two Cavils waiting to be blown out the airlock was powerful stuff; excellent dialogue.

Caprica starts tomorrow, and I find I'm not looking forward to it as much following that BSG cop-out finale.

But I finally figured out what seems so off about Amanda Tapping's speech in Sanctuary. It's not the accent, it's the pitch. She's speaking in a pitch that's higher than her normal speaking voice. Trying hard to shed the Carter image, I guess.

Sure. What woman would want to be stereotyped as a smart, pretty, resourceful authority figure?
