  • This was a truly beautiful episode. This is why I watch BSG

    This was a truly beautiful episode. It was sentimental without being pathetic. It`s weird how a sci fi show can reflect the human spirit so accurate, how only in extraordinary instances we return to our humanity. It was truly a beautiful episode. It was dark, but not hopeless, it was sad, but not excrutiating. The story just flowed. There was nothing forced about it. And remember this is a show about people and robots in big spaceships that fly around galaxies, but yet it is so spiritual. It`s nice to see that people who can plot out and make true a great fight or battle scene can also create an episode like this without overdoing it. In this episode every single character came alive.
