Matthew had a few gripes with the finale, but his mind is “spinning with Cylon conspiracy thoughts” and he can’t wait to hit you with his theories. Dean recalls the first time he watched this episode and the level of excitement he felt when Adama and Rosalyn went head-to-head. Dean is also a big fan of Chief Tyrol and Colonel Tigh this week. Overall, a great dramatic finish!
The lads talk Gaius (and how baffling he is), Six’s apparent jealousy, Cylon motivation, Starbuck’s choice, and the growing sympathies that they both share for Boomer.
Matthew and Dean discuss the tonal shift with “Tigh Me Up” and how it seems oddly placed in the series. Ron D. Moore himself decided to “punt” on the original take of the episode which was to be much darker. The thought process was to let the audience come up for air after a heavy and dark preceding episode. The lads did find plenty to like this week especially as it relates to Gaius Baltar, and of course the titular, Saul Tigh and his tumultuous relationship with Ellen.
The lads had a bit of a layoff between recordings, but that won’t effect the end listener. It was – however – a perfect episode for Matthew to come back in on. Matthew has plenty to say about the heavy focus on Starbuck, as well as the focus on the Cylon mythos. Dean likens himself to Leoben; He is watching truth float past Matthew in the proverbial stream. He leads Matthew along, but is he helping or simply dumping half-baked philosophies into Matthew’s fertile mind? Have a listen and learn about all of the mysteries of “Flesh and Bone”.
