Re: BSG S4: Revelations

I love Tyrol's wry smile during the tracking shot. Everyone else is devastated and he's cracking up like, as if to say "Welcome to my world".

I really like Tyrol's implosion and rebuilding of himself this season. He's had some truly great scenes, some of them virtually silent on his part where all his acting is in the eyes.

Re: BSG S3: Maelstrom

This was the start of BSG's absolutely epic late Season 3 - Season 4 arc. I really can't express enough how good this grouping of episodes were, how they just seemed like a dramatic juggernaut leading us to the conclusion.

In terms of quality, in terms of characterization, action, thought-provoking scifi material, this was the best group of episodes on any series I've ever seen.

Re: BSG S3: Hero

I always found the whole Adama "We were the warmongers" speech to be some hamfisted crap. As if a black op across Cylon lines was justification enough for the Cylons to commit outright genocide.

Adama would call this argument crap and be right for doing so if it weren't the screenwriter directing that he say it.

As for the plan itself, I think it shows the military in a pretty positive, forward thinking light. It paints a picture that while the military was well funded and equipped, the civilian governments were quite content to simpply kick the can down the road concerning the Cylon threat.

Re: VOY S3: Future's End, Part II

I remember watching this late at night, UPN before bed time. Voyager did not age well. 12 year old me loved it, especially when Jeri Ryan showed up in her domme suit.

This episode is every bad Voyager plot device: shuttle crash, fun with time, paper thin villains that make Snidely Whiplash seem deep, awful modern day stereotypes (courtesy of plucky white science girl and the conveniently paranoid, racist redneck militia men, ridiculous level Treknobabble and a completely disposable plot line.

One good thing: the mobile emitter giving the Doc a means to leave his confining world, though its just waaay too convenient. I would have preferred they create dramatic tension from the Doc's limitations rather than simply remove the limitations. I liked the early vibes of the Doc teaching Kes medicine because of the very real need for on-site medical care during crises the doc couldn't perform. But no---magical 29th century armband, problem solved.
