1 review about Battlestar Galactica - Season Three

Great acting and dialogue buoys an OK script

The 3rd season of Battlestar Galactica begins with the scene on New Caprica. Tight loses his wife, and Starbuck loses her emotional stability at the hands of the Cylon occupiers. The colonists on New Caprica are then rescued by a carefully orchestrated surprise mission by Pegasus and Galactica, and the series goes back to the search for Earth. In between, Starbuck is killed, and then comes back to life; and Balter is imprisoned on a Cylon ship, then imprisoned on Galactica. We also have 4 of the 5 humanoid cyclons revealed, along with President Roslin's re-acquintance with cancer. So overall, a very eventful season. Probably the high points are the dialogue, of which numerous scenes stand out. Some of the best include Apollo's defense of Baltar at the latter's trial, Six's explanation of projection to Baltar while on a baseship, Ellen's defense of herself to Tigh, Starbuck's taunting of numerous other people, and Romo's elaborations of justice and the legal system. The script itself has numerous holes. Probably the biggest holes are in the early episodes on New Caprica. The cylons clearly have the technology to monitor the entire range of electro-magnetic, thermal and acoustic radiation, yet they resort to tent-by-tent search and seizures of colonists. these glaring plot holes continue throughout the season and conclude with the trial of Baltar in the last 2 episodes; Cross-Roads 1 and 2. Neither the prosecution nor the defense calls Baltar to the stand, which is unheard of. And the show does not give any explanation as to why he is not called to testify. But overall, still a good show.
