Once again, there are TONS AND TONS AND TONS of spoilers ahead. Look away! You have been warned!
Re: webisodes -- I haven't seen any of them. I'll probably watch them at some point, but apparently they're where it becomes clear that Gaeta is gay (which is a nice touch, since I assumed it anyway) and a few things on New Caprica are elaborated. Not sure how many other webisodes there even are. But honestly knowing there are more gay characters erases the lingering issues I had with Cain's sexuality -- there are so many more important factors in that situation that sexuality is actually the least provocative thing going on, which in itself is a sort of statement, I guess. The issue with hetero dominance in the show, more later, isn't literal, anyway, it's really more about the power dynamics within given (usually hetero but not just BECAUSE they're hetero) relationships.
Be sure to continue reading the comments in the previous thread for more talk about Gaeta, the prez/Adama, Dee, and especially CAIN and her role in the series. (There's a bunch of excellent counterpoint to the original post down there from Girlboymusic and Alex.)
Anyway, onward to some of the good stuff, some of the bad stuff (ARROWS!!!!) and more disagreement (hopefully).
Cut for Spoilers: Ch-ch-ch-changes and Magic Arrows!
More Magic Arrows I'm missing here? Are some of these not really Magic Arrows as I've defined them? (Does how I've defined them make sense?)
More political resonances in the next post. This one's mostly for fangirlboyish plot geekery. (I don't have many people to chat about this stuff with.)
