EPISODE REVIEWS: Battlestar Galactica: "Islanded in a Sea of Star" (Season 4, Episode 18) *REVISED*

Republibot 3.0's picture

The Galactica and the Fleet are *still* in earth orbit, still making repairs to the damage Boomer did last week. Roslin is dying in sickbay, having intermitent dreams of Herra in the opera house and playing in the control room.

Meeting in his quarters, Adama refuses to let them chase after Boomer and the girl, despite the fact that everyone advises it. Starbuck does manage to talk him in to letting a Heavy Raider go look for "The Colony" that Ellen Tigh told him about. They don't find anything - it's been moved.

The Return of Nuclear Weapons!

Part of our mandate here at Republibot is to point out changes in the mental weather of the SF community when they turn up. Sometimes these changes are subtle and gradual, so it's entirely possible that they may go unnoticed by the general population. Fortunately, our highly-paid staff in the "Department Of Noticing Stuff" is both highly-paid, and notices stuff, and periodically we pass their findings on to you, the consumer. And that's when you take it home and enjoy it!

Today's entry: Nukes! They're back! They're Now! They're Hip!

TV Review: Battlestar Galactica: "Someone To Watch Over Me" (Season 4, Episode 17)

Wow!

You know, it's easy to forgive massive missteps like last week when they completely knock it out of the park like they did tonight! Seriously.

And thus ends our Friday-night Science Fiction Triple Feature:

The Galactica and her fleet are still in orbit around Earth. Tyrol and a mostly-Cylon crew are fixing the interior structure of the ship. Anders is still in a coma. Caprica 6 and Tigh are still expecting their baby.

The Battlestar Galactica Auction

There's a chance that even though many of you may lack the full-on OCD geekery I proudly parade, you might just be geeky enough to appreciate some aspects of this:

As anyone who hasn't filtered the commercials from their DVR is doubtless aware, now that filming on the Galactica series has wrapped, and they've struck the sets and everything, the studio decided to auction all the stuff from the show off, as they've got no further use for it.

EPISODE REVIEWS: Battlestar Galactica: “No Exit” (Season 4, Episode 15)

Republibot 3.0's picture

…and suddenly, just like that, we know everything!

We start out 18 months ago, with Saul Tigh killing Ellen. Ellen then resurrects in a Base Ship, and is met by Brother Cavil - “John” - who evidently has known who the Final Five were all along, but has kept it from the others for unstated reasons.

On Galactica, Anders has a bullet in his brain that has removed whatever kind of memory blocks were in place, and he starts relating The Story So Far to the final five:

TV REVIEWS (Sort of): Battlestar Galactica: “The Face of the Enemy” (Episode 11-A)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Part of the publicity ramp-up for the final 10 episodes of Galactica was a web series called “The Face of the Enemy.” It was a 36-minute bottle story about Gaeta, casting some more light on his fall from grace which culminated last week. Curiously, though it was set after Episode 11 (“Sometimes a Great Notion”), it aired before it. The episode was divided in to ten chapters more or less randomly, some of the chapters were as barely over two minutes, some were pushing six.

TV REVIEW: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: "Blood on the Scales" (Season 4, Episode 14)

Republibot 3.0's picture

Last week, a Raptor carrying Roslin and Baltar escaped, making it’s way to the Rebel Base Ship. Gaeta ordered the CAP to shoot them down, but Hot Dog deliberately stalls once he finds out Roslin is on the bird. Narcho cuts in front of him (Nice flying there) to take the shot, but misses and whacks the Base Ship a good one. Roslin and Baltar make it to the base ship. Meanwhile, Tigh and Adama are captured by one of Gaeta’s goon squads while covering Roslin’s escape. Starbuck and Apollo are scooting around on their own below decks.

TV REVIEW: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: "The Oath" (Season 4, Episode 13)

Philip K. Dick once said that "Things show their true nature by how they decay." If that's the case, the people and society of Galactica is shown to have been pretty vile all along, based on what we've seen in these last three episodes. But back to this in a minute. More immediately: Wow!

Now that was a hell of an episode. Fan reaction has seemed pretty weak on the last two episodes, but I liked 'em myself. This one should be more of a crowd-pleaser, though, I think.
