Battlestar Galactica is coming back this January after a six month hiatus. Officially SciFi is still calling it Season 4 but how the Frak can they still call it the same season after a six month break?

That’s just wrong.

Calling it Season 5 i think would be more accurate – but in the spirit of past Battlestar Galactica ‘seasons’ lets split the difference and just call it Season 4.5

When we last saw our friend sin June they had just landed on Earth which was a desolate wasteland. So the big question is now what?

1)Clearly they’ll find the intelligence that brought them to Earth in the First place.

2) The Fifth Cylon will be revealed

3) President Roslyn will die

4) The cylon kids (six’s and Tyrol’s) are going to do something ‘interesting’

This was one fraked up episode. Four of the final five reveal themselves –

Cylon’s almost blow up all of humanity (again).

Somehow Starbuck’s magic viper has the co-ordinates for Earth magically pop up

Cylons and humans are friends again – four of final five get amnesty

and

BAAAAM.

They find Earth?? But it’s been destroyed by a nuclear holocaust.

OOHHH and no more new Battlestar Galactica episodes till 2009..and there are 12 more episode apparently still in the works.

I liked this episode until the Earth part – in the classic series getting to Earth was the whole purpose of the show as it was here.

With another 12 episodes to go (in 2009) what happens now??? Sure there are a lot of loose ends and oh yeah the final cylon who somehow will make all things btr.

Ronald Moore could have ended this mid-season finale with the jump to Earth and then just seeing the blue planet….but no he had to go and ruin it and remind us that his version of Battlestar Galactica is a dark place where no one is ever really happy and its all just a big frakin allegory for how messed up our own planet is.

A year or more from now when Battlestar Galactica returns sure we’ll watch – we all want to know what happens.

Though one thing for sure now – Battlestar Galactica 1980 isn’t happening again..Starbuck isn’t going to walk into a McDonalds and no one can ever truly go home again.

At least they didn’t show a Planet of the Apes Statue of Liberty sticking out of the mud but the vision of a destroyed New York isn’t all that far off. One day, i’d really like to see a truly original view of Earth in popular SciFi instead of the same boring vision.

Another solid episode with the main Cylon resurrection hub getting nuked to oblivion…

BUT what gives with the lame background music during the battle?

What gives with the lack of any cylon on cylon dogfighting..or dogfighting in general?

What should have been a monumental battle wasn’t as good as it should have been

It didn’t have the action that it should have had and it lacked the pop that BSG once did so very well.

The 3 – Lucy Lawless is an awesome character and it’s great to see her back. She had the best scene in the whole episode when she dropped the bombshell that Roslyn is one of the final five cylon —-(what a head fake!!)

Yes it’s neat that Roslyn now loves Adama – wawawawa. And helo helped to double cross the cylon..ok…but now what?

With only one episode to go..till the frakin morons that run SciFi cut the series till what…2009?! there are more loose ends now then there were at the beginning of the season. Hopefully we won’t have to wait until June of 2009 but hey we JUST DON’T KNOW at this point.

Yes this is still a decent show, but the producers are trying real hard to do their best to kill it.
