    I hadn’t noticed that particular alteration in the American version myself until this past week. This is probably why our shows inevitably end up with the inanity the likes of ‘Faith of the Heart’ for “Enterprise.”

    And I’ll share in everyone’s dismay here over the change that was lost when the show jumped sides of the Atlantic; the theme, while somber was uplifting in its own peculiar way. And certainly aligned better to the cultural elements of the BSG universe than the banal dregs that we in the US now have to suffer with :/

    And on a quick aside, I love the ‘this episode,’ ‘space:1999’ homage bits in the intro ๐Ÿ™‚

    a great pair of concluding episodes! and pt 2 only left me cursing the fact that there will be no more forthcoming … at least immediately.

    i’d already been spoiled about adama’s fate – though, for the life of me i can’t recall where i’d read about it initially – but there was sufficient ambiguity to satisfy both potential contractual obligations as well as BSG’s themes of destiny vs free will. boomer certainly exhibited pre-programming on prior occasions but was still able to exhibit at least *some* measure of free will. she certainly could have killed adama outright, but she didn’t. she may have realized at the last moment what she was doing and ‘pulled’ her shot from a more lethal target. a gut wound isn’t the best, but it wasn’t his head ๐Ÿ˜‰
