In Memoriam

So, I finally got around to watching this past week's episode of Battlestar Galactica. As had been rumored for some time, they "killed off" the best character on the show, Kara "Starbuck" Thrace. I qualify that statement only because I have no doubt that this is not the last we'll see of her. It had damn well better not be, given the fact that I'll go on loving her in a way usually reserved for new girlfriends, first crushes, devoted spouses and those sexual encounters that leave you bruised, bloodied and thoroughly spent. My wife is aware of this love, lust and loyalty and is kind enough to allow me my infatuation, gods bless her.

R.I.P. Starbuck.

You'll remain in our hearts and in my dreams.

Until we meet again -- good hunting.

Once again, I watched the episode with the writers. Katee Sackhoff was there this time and she is more beautiful in person than she is on screen, and way more feminine.

She seemed cheery for someone who just got killed off. Then again, she was in LA and not filming in Vancouver, so who knows.

I really do just hate you Em.

I'm going to assume that you made the kind and cordial gesture of giving her this web address.

Please tell me you did.

Thanks for the spoilers, asshole.

Kinda doubt they killed off one of the principal characters. There was that whole bit with the ejection handle. And really, what's BSG without her?

Both my fiance & I are pretty heavy-duty BSG fans and we both ended up sitting speechless on the couch after Starbuck's ship exploded. So not fair!

My pleasure on the spoilers. Feel free to complain to the management.

Oh yeah, you just did.

Well in that case, the management politely requests that you fuck off and don't come back.

Have a nice day. : )

So say we all ;)

I saw her coming out of the bathroom and barely managed to stammer a comment about how she made me cry, to which she replied, "I was supposed to."

So I can't even properly talk for myself.

Fortunately I'm going back Sunday. I still won't mention you, but I just wanted to continue to make you jealous.

Chez said...

I'm going to be out there in LA soon Em. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if I were to somehow kidnap you and drop you off in front of the Scientology Celebrity Center in Los Feliz wearing nothing but a sandwich board that reads, "ASK ME ABOUT XENU."

when I posted my "RIP" post, which is how I find myself here via a referred link and a google page, one of my friends commented that even if she isn't gone she's not in the rest of the season.

That'll be a frack'n long wait.

There are many copies.

You'll see her again, Chief.

How have I managed to not see this show? I think I have too many haunting memories of Dirk Benedict as the original Starbuck. Well, Chez thank to your post, I'm going get some DVD's and catch up! cheers!

yeah, i'm with you chez, we aint seen the last of her. you CANT just blow up starbuck. cant cant cant. senseless, borderline plotless, no real fun except to watch grieving adamas, which usually makes for messes. dont know HOW we see her again, no bloody speculation there, but she is so not gone.

"whaddaya hear starbuck?"

"nothin but the rain."

"then grab your gun and bring the cat in."
