This isn’t spoilery, trust me.
I was actually thinking of writing a truly spoilery review of Battlestar Galactica 4×11 (“Sometimes A Great Notion”) here. I still am. In the meantime, I just wanted to say a few things.
To say that 4×11 was gut-wrenching is to say that the universe is kinda big. Holy frack. It was exciting and depressing, and at the moment Starbuck discovers something about herself, I cried myself silly.
So, yeah, the first episode of this second half of the final season did not disappoint. And like most fans, I am torn whether to watch each succeeding episode as soon as it comes out, or waiting for them all to air and watching them in one sitting. Bah. Will watch each one as soon as it comes out, I’m a big girl, I can take the suspense.
