Battlestar Galactica: Season 3, Episodes 1 through 4

Television, 2006

Hey, this show got really good again. After a soul-crushing drop in quality in season two, the beginning of Battlestar Galactica‘s third season is, I’m tempted to say, just as thrilling as the first. I’m not yet sure if it has as much going on thematically, but it’s taking me right back to the first season in that I can’t stop watching the episodes once I’ve started. There are a fair amount of minor plot quibbles; “Why would they do that”type stuff that you feel like shouldn’t bother you. But really, if it’s so bad that it’s removing you from the narrative then it’s a problem. That never happened for me in season one. I was really impressed with the end of the second season’s bold “Let’s throw it all out and make ourselves a new show” plot apocalypse, but I can’t say I’m too surprised that the status quo seems to have been regained. 4
