Two Problems and One Solution for Friday's Battlestar Episode

I like a fast-moving plot, but the breakneck speed at which events unfolded and characters did about-faces on Friday's Battlestar Galactica episode was frankly untenable. The human vs. robot drama reached a fever pitch in last week's kickass episode, but this week's story, called "Sine Qua Non," made several obvious… » 6/02/08 6:30am 6/02/08 6:30am

Cylon Psychodrama and Way Too Much Singing on Battlestar

The last several episodes of Battlestar Galactica have been occasionally slug-like, but Friday's installment, "Guess What's Coming to Dinner," delivered some serious asskickery.

A Giant Bag of "What the Hell" on Battlestar Galactica

Cylon Civil War and Rough Sex with Starbuck

Things are getting awesomely ugly on Battlestar Galactica, with the humans squabbling over sex and the justice system while their arch-enemies the Cylons march towards all-out bot-on-bot civil war. One of the more stylized, surreal episodes of BSG, last night's "The Ties that Bind" was full of weird camera angles and… » 4/19/08 9:12am 4/19/08 9:12am
