Last Sunday I had a six-hour marathon of Battlestar Galatica so I could finally catch up with the whole show. And you know what? I want to watch it all over again.
Aside from the season finale, Lay Down Your Burdens, my favorite episodes of season 2 have to be Downloaded and Final Cut.
Final Cut gave us the opportunity to see into the lives of the men and women aboard Galactica. Shot in documentary-style it provided more insight into the different characters (who knew Lt. Gaeta had a tattoo?!) while introducing more complexity by revealing another human Cylon model.
Downloaded was told from the point of view of the Cylons – showing what happens when a Cylon is reborn. We get to see how the heroes of the war, Caprica Six and Boomer are adjusting to their new bodies and their new lives but at the same time wishing for the past.
In the run up to the Season 3 premiere on October 6, SCI FI will be showing Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far. It will be narrated by President Roslin (Mary McDonnell) and recap what has happened since the start of the show. Also in the works is The Resistance, a 10-part web series to fill in the gaps between the end of Season 2 and the start of Season 3. However there’s no word yet when this will air.
