Once again we face some Big Questions: Is it ethical to destroy an entire civilization, even one that means you harm? Is biological warfare ever acceptable? Is it possible to enjoy being tortured? (It is now, nudge-nudge!) Oh, and Grace Park joins us on the podcast. NONE OTHER THAN SHARON/BOOMER/ATHENA HERSELF!
Join us for a post-ATX debrief, a discussion of the amazing conclusion to the New Caprica arc, and the man himself, show creator Ron Moore. All the things!
The word "exodus" comes from the ancient texts, and loosely translates to "Go bye-bye now." Which is exactly what the human residents of New Caprica want to do. Curiously, it seems like the Cylons wouldn't mind that option, either.
In which everyone pats their pockets and says, "Launch keys, launch keys... Now where the heck did we leave those keys?" Because you can't stage a getaway if you can't start the getaway car.
Quick housekeeping note: We'll be taking a short break after this episode, but lots of good stuff to follow.
Before there was "Caprica" (the TV series), there was New Caprica, the setting for most of Season 3's opener. Unfortunately, the Nazis -- er, Cylons -- have occupied the settlement, so things aren't looking good. For the humans, anyway; for the viewer, things are very good.
