  • Adama continues with his plan to use Cylon drive technology on Colonial ships. The closer ties between the rebel Cylons and the humans sets off a violent uprising in the fleet

    This episode covered pretty much everything that makes this series so special. Strong character motivations had been developed in the previous episode. Now the characters were thrown into pure exciting action. Admama, Rosalyn, Tigh, Starbuck and Lee were all back in action just the way we like them. The excitement, danger and related emotions were all pulse-poundingly real. Another thing this episode once again explored is that aside from the initial attack against the colonies, the humans have killed more humans than the Cylons have. I love the way this show explores both the positives and negatives of human nature. Oh, and let's not forget the jaw-dropping cliff-hanger. Yes, we knew it was coming because they do it to us week after week but it still made both my wife and mom scream out loud. That's how good the show is - it works whether the outcome is expected or not. I definitely felt like a hungry dog on a short leash being led on a brisk walk through the meat aisle. Give us more like this!
