I'm sure The Plan will do some demented thing to try and explain it, but that's not really acceptable storytelling coming so far after the fact.

Have to check if the BFG 9000 I ordered for my troups have arrived. :frak:

Chris, NT2, Scrawny, did you receive yours?

I can forgive them the retcon a little, simply because Bodie Olmos did his best work of the series during that arc; he's quite talented, and it was nice to see it. Otherwise, it was stupid, but not as stupid as the "I do believe in Cylon babies" retcon.

Would this be the Saul / Caprica relationship? If so, I agree substantially. Months after he calls Boomer a "thing", he's having a baby with the BSG universe's second-evillest cylon? Noooo! To be fair, though, Michael Hogan and Tricia Helfer did a great job, as (perhaps) did the writers, of selling the relationship.

Tigh called Cylons things, before he found out he was one. Before he learned that what you are is not who you are.

Yes indeed. It was a mistake for him to predicate his disdain for cylons on their supposed lack of personhood.

I think it was a general comment about sterotyping and racism.

Quite possibly. I meant that it was Tigh's mistake, though, not the writing team's.
