The cars in the basement are all European classic models. Among them is a Citroën DS. This was done to create a slightly less familiar look of Caprica toward US viewers (but will look more familiar to European viewers). See more »


When Anders and his people are planning the attack on the Cylons, he says the Sharon Cylon told Kara that when Cylons download, they remember everything up until the moment they die. Kara and Sharon (the Cylon) only had this conversation 3 episodes ago in the holding cell constructed for Sharon, so there is no way that Kara could have told this information to Anders, who at this point is still on Caprica. Actually, the Kara and Sharon Cylon conversation of 3 episodes ago dealt with 2 new things that Kara learned from Sharon. 1 - with the destruction of the Resurrection ship, the Cylons were not about to enter into a mass raid, but continue hit and run tactics for now; 2 - Raiders resurrect. This second one was crucial to the show's plot - dealing with Scar, a Cylon Raider. Kara was surprised that "raiders resurrect the same way you do?" She already knew about the 'skin-job' resurrections as Anders said - Sharon Cylon told them on Caprica. Note that in a later show, Kara's line was changed in a 'previously on Battlestar Galactica' scene to "Cylons resurrect?", but it was "Raiders resurrect?" in the actual episode. See more »


Lt. Sharon 'Boomer' Valerii: [wakes up in hospital bed] What happened?
Lt. Karl 'Helo' Agathon: You passed out and started bleeding again, but everything's going to be alright.
Dr. Cottle: Like hell it is. I find it absolutely amazing. You people went to all the trouble to appear human and didn't upgrade the plumbing!

I think this is possibly the best episode of BSG
30 September 2006 | by (Harrogate, UK) – See all my reviews

It was so well written. I loved that Six was haunted by her own version of Giaus, just like he has visions of Six. I love that her vision of him is so much more composed and dangerous than the real Giaus, who is more pathetic. Excellent acting by James in this.

And the Galactica Sharon who has moved into her old apartment and still keeps photos of her made up parents in her home. Great take on the character.

Both Six and Sharon are damaged goods to the new Cylons. Celebritys in a world that doesn't recognise individuallity. There realisation of the flaws in the people is excellently shown her.

And the ending when Sharon and Six trapped in the rubble decide to work together and change the Cylons. All amazing stuff.

Best hour of TV since Buffy season 6. I dare you to argue :)
