Now naturally I was going to bring it to the Quorum to open it up for debate once it was finished, which it isn’t. But since you’ve brought it into the public today, I propose that we put it on the dock for the next full session. Is that satisfactory to you, Mr. Adama?
❝ Laura Roslin taught me a great deal about the trade-off that occurs, the constant negotiation between heart and mind that occurs in a woman when operating at the top of the male power structure.

first time watching Battlestar Galactica:unexpectedly this isn't the scifi trash the title suggested but a show with a revolutionary style, articulate realism and searing dialogue and the most stellar cast in history; it uses a truly fantastical premise to highlight a dark, yet idealistic truth about our most basic human nature
second time:wow this truly is the perfect simulation of a genderblind society that still has to deal with classism and racial issues whilst combating complete moral bankrupcy in the face of extinction
third time:every time i watch this show i discover new nuances and still enjoy the stories
