It'll take a lot to top that

Are you sick of me writing about Battlestar Galactica? Well, rest easy if you are because it won't be back until 2009.

As for last night's episode, well. I'd venture that there hasn't been an episode of this series that good ever, and that's saying a lot considering this series is brilliant 97% of the time. Some things I loved:

  1. Saul Tigh.
  2. Adama's breakdown and how Apollo took care of him.
  3. Apollo's Obama moments and his standoff with Three.
  4. "These two are Cylons like the XO."
  5. Starbuck.
  6. EARTH and the whole one-take final shot.
And that's just simplifying it. Every single second was perfection.

So, if you're not watching yet, do yourselves a favor and rent the first three seasons and program your DVR to record the reruns of this season when they air. You won't be sorry. I promise.

Also: there's a really comprehensive recap of the panel from Thursday night in LA here.
