Battlestar Galactica – Season 4

Battlestar Galactica is yet another example of lack of originality in Hollywood these days. A reimagined series of original 1980’s Battlestar Galactica, it is now in its fourth and final season. Though different from its parent series, it has been able to redefine the sci-fi genre and give us a remarkable show, defined by the intensity of its characters.

This season promises to hold the answers to most of the questions posed so far in the series. From the origins of humanity, to the creation of Cylons, it focuses on the personal struggle of each character to understand their place in the world. Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell are superb in their respective characters of William Adama and Laura Roslin.

The show has lost consistency in its portrayal of critical situations throughout the show due to the involvement of numerous directors. The editing has been down right atrocious in some cases. The solving of these problems could have made the show much better.

The redeeming feature of Battlestar Galactica is its writing and portrayal of characters. Ron D. Moore and his writing team have done an excellent job creating a story both complex in its nature and yet so simple and understandable for viewers who just want our worth of a frakking good time of television viewing every week.

    I freaking love that you made me watch Galactica. I mean, it took me ages… and I really mean AGES to finish Season 1 after the tv-movie. The tv-movie was really freaking fantastic, but made the first season a bit redundant. I would even suggest to skip all the tv-movies and webisodes, because the seasons in itself are really stand-alone.

    And I have just this ginormus girl crush on Starbuck, she so freaking rocks. Plus, that episode with the coup, blew me away.
