Lost in Space

Posted By on Fri, Feb 9, 2007 at 11:39 AM

Helo stopped by the Viper Den last night to catch up with the episodes of Battlestar Galactica he'd missed since the move to Sunday night last month. Unfortunately, TiVo had gone ahead and erased the second episode of the second half of the season--frakin' toaster!--but the first one, "Rapture," was a delight, bringing resolution to the first half of the season and setting up the storylines that will bring S3 to a close. Helo liked it so much he scurried home to buy the next episode, "Taking a Break From All Your Worries," from the iTunes Music Store.

Since I don't want to spoil anything for all the Blog readers who will be rushing out to buy the DVD after my review, I'll just say this: I love, love, love what we've seen with Baltar in these first two episodes this season, though I'm not sure how he'll cheat death this time; I love that we're seeing Chip Six again; I'm really tired of the Starbuck/Apollo/Dee/Sam quadrangular relationship; and I'm so looking forward to the upcoming trial.

Gotta say, tho: The deleted scene from "Taking a Break From All Your Worries" between Roslyn and Caprica 6--available at scifi.com after the original broadcast--really should have been in the episode. Particularly tasty was Rosyln's reaction to learning Caprica's name.

By the way, the best commentary on Galactica--and most everything else worth watching on TV--can be found at televisionwithoutpity.com.
