Hmmmm, man's love for the machine with a soul seems to be a theme in this LJ lately. But first off, a bunch of people on my flist have discovered Veronica Mars and I love reading their posts. Yay. So I ended up rewatching A Trip to the Dentist, and it feels very different after "Not Pictured." It's still my favorite VM ep, but even though I am OK with Cassidy being the rapist, I liked the real mess of ATttD earlier better: more natural, less clear-cut.

OK, to get back to H/B. Behind the cut is a rather extensive Helo/Boomer picspam. I admit that they are a large part of the reason I am so into Battlestar Galactica. I like my ships impossibly hard and angsty and it's tough to get harder and more angsty than Helo and Boomer. Not only are they from enemy races, but he is someone who was in love with her when he thought she was human, and she is another copy of the Cylon model he was in love with, who is supposed to lead him around for various Cylony reasons, but ends up falling in love with him, going off the reservation, leaving her people, and putting up with the remnants of humanity hating her and putting her in jail to be with him. He, in turn, loves her anyway, even after finding out she isn't human, even after being ostracised by the crew, even despite that he is a military pilot and she is a member of the race that did a very effective job of wiping out humanity so that less than 50,000 straggling survivors remain. Talk about a FUBAR ship. Made just for me, in fact. I know many people don't care for them, but I lap it all up with a giant spoon.

So, without much further ado:

Helo/Boomer pics )

And a few cool Helo pics. Because he is hot.

Here is the list of all the Battlestar Galactica episodes (23, so far) aranged from most liked to least with reasons.

33 (1.1): How odd is it that my favorite episode is also the Pilot. But this one is beyond amazing and very time-structured, a pet thing of mine. Plus, we get some angst, some giddy Starbuck/Apollo and some tense tense TENSE and on the ragged edge with no sleep scenes.

KLG Part 1 (1.12): I fell in love with it by the end of the teaser. Galactica discovers Kobol, Helo discovers Sharon is a Cylon, Apollo discovers jealousy, and Kara discovers her preference in partners (hint: their name has 3 letters, starts with "L" and ends with "ee.") It's a pity she finds this out when Baltar is on top of her. It only goes deliciously and angstily downhill from there. Perfect, perfect, perfect.

Pegasus (2.10): Brilliant, brilliant dark ep as Galactica comes across another ship, which really is Galactica in a twisted dark mirror. Apollo and Starbuck get transferred to the Ship of Doom, Tyrol and Helo team up to save Sharon from rape, and Baltar makes me cry. Yes, really. Thoughts on it here

KLG Part 2 (1.13): Starbuck goes back to Caprica. Meanwhile Adama mutinies and Roslin is about to be deposed. Of course, Apollo conducts a counter-mutiny of his own. Oh, and Galactica Boomer tries to deal with a suicidal mission. Season ends with scream-worthy cliffhanger, into the bargain. Gooooooooooooood.

Valley of Darkness (2.2): Yeah, I am Lee-biased. Whatever. This is a brilliant ep about trying to destroy the enemy who has already infiltrated and taking over. Lee leads the attack all the while worrying about his father, still on parole for mutiny (!!) and being the best leader ever in his own inimitable non-rah-rah style. For a man who was ambivalent about the military, he sure does a kick-ass job. And Roslin earns my undying love by being so cool and collected under pressure. We also see Starbuck and Helo bond (yay!) and Dee and Billy are cute which in BSG terms equals doomed. My thoughts on this ep here.

Colonial Day (1.11): Lee and Kara interrogate, brawl, snark and dance. Guuuuh. Oh, and there is twisty politics there too.

Because I am an obsessive list maker. The rest behind the cut )
