  • Good but not a happy episode.

    Despite the long and otherwise agonizing wait all this time the mid-season premier was a fine example of what makes Galactica great. Its has twists and turns. There are many reasons why to watch this episode. One of them is the fact that it reveals the answer to many questions we held so close and it doesn't fail to raise a few. In and of itself this episode is a happy one, but not all of the good ones are. You want to believe that everything will be okay in the end of the series but after what has happened in this episode, you feel that it won't. And on a level regarding Edward James Olmos's character, what happens is disappointing. This episode is not for those who want a "happy, everything is fine" episode, because it's not. This episode is dark, very dark and at the last few minutes it leads to a happy and sad ending.
