They brought back the element of surprise this week. It is about time!
The "Adama has been shot" storyline is finally waning away. With his return, the show can only get better. Boomer 1's story also comes back to the forefront. They correctly tied it to the Cheif's return from Kobol.
Speaking of Kobol, didnt the fleet leave the planet a little quickly? Isn't this akin to the Israelites wandering around the desert instead of going to the promised land? Granted, the Isrealites witnessed the walls of Jericho come down. Somehow the arrow of Apollo must figure in this miraclous storyline. Maybe Roslin will fly around the planet seven times and sprinkle it with fairy dust. Who knows?
To say the show ends with a bang is an understatement. What really made it a good episode was the procession of little bangs leading up to the climax. It was a good story told well. That is exactly why I watch.
