Storyline

The trial of Gaius Baltar enters its last stages and Lee suggests they try to get a mistrial. Lt. Gaeta lies on the stand, hurting Baltar's defense. Lee is called as a witness in an attempt to discredit his father. The tribunal delivers its controversial verdict which does not sit well with everyone. Chief Tyrol begins to hear the same tune that Tigh, Anders and Tory Foster hear. The four of them meet and come to a startling conclusion. Meanwhile, Roslin and Athena realize they have had the same dream or projection and Caprica Six, in the brig, had the same vision. The fleet finally arrives at its destination, the Ionian nebula, but don't seem to have managed to dupe the Cylons. With the trial over, Lee returns to duty and while on patrol is contacted by someone they had all assumed was lost. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

The famous Bob Dylan song 'All Along the Watchtower' (also famously covered by Jimi Hendrix) was the source for the lines of some of the main characters near the end of the episode: "There must be some way out of here, said the joker to the thief / There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief." Also "No reason to get excited," as spoken by Anders. See more »

Quotes

Col. Saul Tigh: My name is Saul Tigh. I'm an officer in the Colonial Fleet. Whatever else I am, whatever else it means, that's the man I want to be. And if I die today, that's the man I'll be.

Season Three
5 July 2019 | by zkonedogSee all my reviews

For two seasons, I watched Battlestar Galactica expecting a type of greatness that just never seemed to be realized. It had its epic moments, of course, but I always felt as the drama was held back just when it should have been accelerated. In this third season, however, the drama, character development, and overall plotlines are some of the most extraordinary hours ever produced for television.

Because I am loathe to give out any spoilers, I won't discuss the contents of the episodes in this review. Suffice it to say, however, that viewers get a "little bit of everything" in this third go-'round, including...

-An insider's point of view on the Cylons.

-Some incredible emotional drama stemming from the New Caprica situation.

-Not a single episode that is a "dud"

-A finale that is so epic and surprising that it takes a while to fully even sink in.

I started watching BSG because I was looking for another "LOST" (what I consider to be the greatest TV show of all-time). Though I don't think (as a whole) BSG lives up to that lofty mantra, I will say that it's third season is as compelling of drama as anything LOST ever produced.

Thus, I do not understand the many people who consider this to be the "weakest" season of the show, as for me it was the season where everything finally came together in the big-time payoff. I can't wait to see what the final season has in store for these characters I now have so much emotional attachment to!
