More like DOLT-ar, amirite?

I watched a lot of Battlestar Galactica this weekend, clipping like a madwoman for my maybe-for-Wiscon vid. I had forgotten that the show could easily be subtitled "or How Gaius Baltar Repeatedly Failed at Life and Doomed Humanity." One of his few moments of non-fail -- helping Gina -- was really about him wanting a replacement for Caprica and eventually undermined by his pushy/rapey attitude toward her. Ugh.

Also, plot hole: Why did he give her the nuke, and why did she use it in that way and at that moment?

Postscript: the number of fucks given about Kara/Lee remains infinitesimal.

Who the fuck is Gina

Yes Baltar is icky, and Lee is douche boredom. He should have been hanging around complaining about being friendzoned. Then the character would have made sense. Also this:

But seriously, I went to the full character list on imdb and didn't find any Gina and I have no idea who that is. Baltar actually did something nice for someone? How can I not remember this?

Ah, thanks! I know her! But yeah, don't think I ever knew her name.

Tbh, the end kinda spoiled it and I don't really want to go back.

Oh yeah? Where?

I can't tell you when it started, but I do know that by the time you had a "final four" all coming together because "All Along The Watchtower" is an ancient pre-pre-Earth song of Meaning, it had well and thoroughly jumped the shark.
