  • More political talking and sentimental rubbish - spoilers in my review if you haven't watched it yet by the way.

    I gave this episode a 6, mostly because it falls way bellow it's usual high standards.

    This was essentially a political/legal episode which really makes no sense. The replacement/stand-in president? It doesn't take a genius to work out who it's going to be and amazingly, no-one in the quorum seems to mind either?

    This is the one thing that Battle Star falls down on quite often, making decisions and taking actions that are frankly stupid and outrageous.

    Leaving Adama to float around in a raptor amongst a load of Cylon debris.

    After the president is kidnapped, the next most senior commander/leader is allowed to bob about in a raptor with no protection?


    Leaving Sol in command after it turned out so well last time?

    Along with the decision, by Lee, to make himself president, this seems just crazy.

    A boring and nonsensical episode which is hopefully just setting us up for a bit of excitement in the next, can only hope.
