Hey - I learned how to embed a youtube video!!!!

Discussion questions for 33
Mary Yay

Hi Everyone!  Even though we just had a friending meme, I want to introduce myself to you.  My name is Laura (hence the incredibly inventive lj handle.)  I have been a fan of Mary for quite some time, but somehow had missed BSG until right before the final season.  I  quickly got the DVDs and was able to catch up in time to watch the last season as it aired.  And I became a huge BSG and Laura fan.

            I am new to LJ and still trying to figure out all the things one does on a social networking site.  My knowledge of  IM speak is pretty much limited to LOL, so please, be gentle in your comments.

            I was fortunate to get to Dragon*Con and meet some of you in person (but I am bad at putting all the names to the faces and the lj handles).  I asked Mary a question at the Sunday panel and was extremely happy with her answer. (I asked about the use of books as a symbol for Bill’s and Laura’s relationship).

             I am thrilled to start off our discussion of BSG episodes with ‘33’.  I enjoyed this episode very much and the questions that I have range from the superficial to the serious.

             Let’s get started.  Please keep the following in mind when you re-watch so that you will be able to join the discussion on Friday,


  1. How glad are you that BSG didn’t feel the need to be very strict about continuity and allowed Laura a slightly better hairstyle than the mini?
      2.   Compare and contrast Scruffy Bill/Clean-shaven Bill.  

  1. Laura seems as exhausted as everyone else, yet does seem to be in charge of the civilians, setting up a government.  Agree/Disagree – not sure. 
  1. When Baltar offers to speak to Dr. Aramak, Laura comments to Billy “He’s a strange one”.  Do you think that even at this early stage, there is something about Baltar that tweaks Laura’s radar? 
  1. The appearance of the white board with the population count – why do think Laura is so intent on keeping this current and in such a highly visible place?  Do you think this helps or hinders her in her decision-making? 
  1. When the Olympic Carrier rejoins the fleet and Adama suggests off-loading the passengers and destroying the ship, Laura jumps very quickly to the point that the Cylons might be targeting a passenger instead of the ship.  Did it surprise you that Laura was the one who thought of  that first? 
  1. Laura gives the order to destroy the ship.  Do you think Adama would have destroyed it without her order or would he have tried to convince her first? 
  1. Billy tells Laura that 24 hours without the appearance of the Cylons means it was the right choice. Laura echoes that it was the right choice.  What do you think Laura really wanted to reply? 
  1. The birth of the baby on the Rising Star. (Gotta love the symbolism of the name of that ship).  Why do think Laura chose not to show her happiness at the news (and how great was Mary at the whiteboard?)  until she was alone? 
  1. The concept of God and punishment and repentance was introduced right at the beginning of the show.  Did you believe the whole incident with the Olympic Carrier is pre-ordained? 
  1. Tigh’s speech about them all being tired and there being no relief coming, but that they are still expected to do their jobs – he seems to actually be a decent XO here.  Did you think he would turn out to be a better XO than he was in the mini-series? 
  1.  And, finally, do you wonder why Helo was not suspicious of Sharon returning to Caprica for him?


If anyone has any other topic for discussion, please don’t hesitate to suggest it in the comments. 

Thanks for playing!!!!
