Holy set-up Batman! Sorry, wrong show…. What the Frack?
Was anyone else incredibly disappointed with last night’s ‘fall finale’ of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA? Didn’t we essentially see the exact same ending last season as Adama and Admiral Kain ended off the first half of the season with guns pointed at each other. Hmm…. is Adama REALLY going to Nuke the planet! The Eye of the Beholder! The path to Earth! And his son!? Probably not. Was this episode just a giant ramp-up to the second half of the season, most definitely! Thankfully we’ll only have to wait until January 21 for the conclusion — or for something to actually happen — rather than another six months for the outcome.
Okay, perhap’s I’m a bit too bitter. Truth be told, I did watch this episode at 2am after a very VERY long night. So here are a few things I enjoyed about the episode:
Sharon finally learning her daughter Hera is alive (we’ve waited how long for this?). The Roslin/Adama relationship, as Adama discovered she lied to him about Hera. Roslin’s look when Adama decided to nuke the planet. The fact that Caprica feels betrayed by Baltar and Number 3 (how will she exact her revenge?), and Tyrol’s emotion as he discovered the Temple (his look of reverence was fantastic).
And just because I can, a final negative. This isn’t BATTLESTAR CREEK. Can we please lost the incessant relationship angst. If Dualla ends up having Tom Cruise’s next baby, I’m officially off the BATTLESTAR BANDWAGON.
