When Six says "The others don't know I'm here," the context seems to say that the other Cylons don't know that she's living in Baltar's head. Any thoughts?

I got the same feeling about that and i believe more light will be shed on this in downloaded.

I think the "message" of this episode was drummed in rather too strongly, but it had some good moments. My favourite line was, "I'm a soft touch". I did wonder from the beginning whether Tyrol and Boomer wouldn't do best to own up to their assignation, and I'm still not sure what the consequences would have been if they had, if any? A slap on the wrist?
I really loved the "Hey, I owe you one" moment.
Thinking about this episode some more, shouldn't there have been a scene where Baltar finds out that Doral really was a Cylon and stops feeling any guilt about fingering him as one in the miniseries? As far as I know, up until this episode he would have had no way of knowing that Doral really was one?

That seargent who acted as the lawyer got well shafted when Adama came in, no one can beat that guy.
And then he ordered her own gaurds to take her to her quarters for a time out, lol wow.
I cant beleive that the real Six beat the living crap out of Sharon, but love the way they're toying with Helo.

Awesome ep. Damn this is a cool show so far :)

Loved how it showed how Witch Hunts often lead to doing so much Collateral damage. Adama was very good when put in the chair. Nice to see that Boomer and chief Tyrol broke it off at the end, and he began to question her about helping the Cylons.

So far i have found this part of the show to be rather dull. If i were Helo i would be thinking that it had all been too easy so far, but its nice to see that he went after Sharon since she did the same for him.

This was the first episode that I wasn't keen on. The tribunal I found to be quite dull, however the action on Caprica saved this episode from being a utter bore... just what do they hope to gain from that whole game they are playing with Helio?

Oh and I am the only one thinking that the Boomer with Helio may turn against the other Cylons?

Ugh, what an annoying and thick main plot...

Independent tribunal established. Tribunal asks probing questions. Tribunal makes illogical leaps regarding accusations. Adama shuts them down. Sorry, but there's not much at all in the main plot to recommend if you ask me. Probably the highlight was Adama chewing out Tyrol. "You'll pay a different kind of price."

The teaser was nicely tense, and the Helo subplot was pretty good.

This is definitely my least favorite of the first season, though "Colonial Day" will make a run for that position later.

3/10

Despite being a slower episode, I rather liked it. It is not at the top of my list (of favourites) but I enjoyed the Caprica B-plot, and I *loved* Adama. The way he handled the tribunal, his conversation with Tyrol, his "I owe you one" line to Tigh... every scene with Adama reminds me again and again why he's one of my all-time favourite characters from tv and movies.

Oh, and the scenes with Baltar are always fun - this ep was no exception. To quote Roslin from '33', "He's a strange one." James Callis is bloody hilarious! :D

I agree.
