  • Good, But I like Politics.

    Good Episode. The basis of this episode is about trying to restore some sense of order and normality to the fleet. The president decides a that she will hold the election for vice president.

    Enter Tom Zarek. The power mad 'political' prisoner that wants to change his office from cell #892 to colonial 1, and he does'nt mind not playing by the rules. Enter the hird gun, and the basis for the episode

    And all this excitment held on the lavish outside enviroment of cloud nine (which sorta came out of no where)

    So once again its up o Galctica to stop the culprit and some who link him to Zarek who as you can imagine President Rosilin is none too keen to share a work enviroment with.

    Now a change from the norm instead of a last minute dash to stop the would be assasin he is caught rather quickly and easily in a bar fight(appantly the best assasins were busy)

    So the last half hour is a broyal with good old political intrique. Will the heads of the Colanies make the right decision and choose not to elect Zarek. Not before one last twist.

    The candadate Rosalin wants to elect is not doing as wll as she may have hoped. The answer to that is get a new candidate and who better for the jon than the cylon loving Gaius Baltar ( I think I see a problem) With Baltar on-board he wins over Zarek although it is tight.

    Zarek escorted back to his cell the winners can be found enjoying the their victory and celebrating colonial day the heroes dance the night away. However Baltars dancing with a Cylon. Not a good indication of things to come.
