Why hasn't anybody commented on this episode? I loved it. It was soo funny. Even though i don't really think it was supposed to be. It's just that James Callis just brings this aspect to Baltar. Very very funny. Anyway, my review is going to be a very lonely little review indeed unles some kind soul decides to comment. hint hint. That's all i guess. I just loved this episode. :)

I know. That scene with him and Gaeta in the head is hilarious.

And then Baltar to Gaeta as he hurriedly leaves to get away from crazy Gaius: “You forgot to wash your hands!” :D

And of course it gave us “No more Mr. Nice Gaius!”

Yes, I liked the scene in the toilets. I suppose they put that in so that the Galactica would not be like the various incarnations of the Enterprise where we never found out where the toilets were.
I liked this episode more than I thought I would from the title, as Six is not my favourite character, but I did think Baltar would have been best to accuse "Shelley Godfrey" of being a Cylon as soon as he saw her and heard that she had made serious accusations against him, rather than say he had never seen her before. Still, I suppose that's the way he tends to behave.

Interesting that Tigh's "reverse psychology crap" did work on Starbuck after all!

And as for the Cylon Raider, considering that Starbuck had destroyed its brain, does it really make any difference how it's treated? But I wonder if it needs feeding, or if it would die without its brain? Perhaps a later episode will explain more.

Feed on what.....green jelo perhaps :D

It was an animal and needed to be treated so, great episode and left me with more questions than answers when i saw it, it does remain a fave in the BSG collection though.

I loved the way Baltar watched the camera footage and says 'Well I definately didn't do that' and the scene where he's talking to his assistant whilst he was in the middle of laying a brick, brilliant writing.

Or when the good doctor kicks down the door to Miss Godfree when she's letting one out as well, that's funny.:)

GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGreat ep.

this episode gives you the WTF feeling at the end but overall very fun episode.

the beginning was fun in the cic with baltar not realizingthat six was real this time.

Another good one Gaius is a legend so funny, but where did the No.6 on the Galactica go? I'm sure it will probably turn up later on in the Season.

Also from the look Gaius gave the President at the end I think No. 6 has pushed him further into her grip, he is not going to be so keen to help the fleet now I'd imagine

I must be in the minority. I am finding him one of the most annoying people on the show. And I too and wondering how the hell there is a real life version of 6 on the ship and where the hell she vanished at the end?

I feel exactly the same way!
Everytime he does something bad, I go like "aaarrrgghh, why haven't they found out yet he's acting so strange". I mean, he's constantly talking to "himself" and doing all these weird things.

But the one thing I really really want to know is how 6 became real!
My first guess was that everyone has a chip implanted in their brain, but that doesn't explain the glasses she left behind....

Anyone have a clue?

I felt that this episode was a mixed bag; there was some good humor ("No more nice Mr. Gaius!", the scene where Baltar tries to destroy the evidence, Michael Hogan's superb straight man routine in CIC: "She's standing right there" :lol:), but also there were a handful of "duh... what?" moments. Those would include the awkward resolution to Shelly Godfrey's appearance (which "The Plan" later had to bend over backwards to explain) and the random "Cylon" graffiti in Boomer's locker.

Also I'd like to point out the unusual bookended shots of this episode; it begins with a zoom-in on the Fleet, and ends with a zoom-out from the Fleet. Was the episode going for a "day in the life" motif? No idea.


Yes, I liked the scene in the toilets. I suppose they put that in so that the Galactica would not be like the various incarnations of the Enterprise where we never found out where the toilets were.
Babylon 5 was the first SF show to show a conversation in the restroom ("Signs and Portents" and "Divided Loyalties"; only in the former do characters "do their business", however). Battlestar took it a step further with this scene.

A slightly below average episode for me, but still a good watch, given the humor.

4/10

This episode is bloody hilarious. James Callis is just a brilliant actor! Not only is his comedic timing impeccable, but he really makes you feel how conflicted and terrified Baltar is when he's locked in his cell.

Michael Hogan absolutely has to get a nod for this ep, too. He was spot on in every scene! In CIC with Baltar, the scene with Starbuck on sick bay - the more I rewatch BSG, the more I appreciate Tigh's character.

I totally agree! I can't stand him and I thought I was the only one.

I know this is an old post, but I'd like to point out that B5 may have only been the first (non-comedic) space opera series to do so, as the few of which that did exist before the early 90s always seemed subject to that Star Trek stigma. The Twilight Zone and Quantum Leap had some bathroom scenes in the late 80s, as did Red Dwarf.
