Jane Seymour

In the midst of the space saga and the galactic battles, I will point out the human element: Captain Apollo and his beautiful bride Serina make for one of the most memorable couples on film EVER! Epitome of evil John Colicos as Baltar continues to be a superb villain. And Starbuck in that wonderful scene where he uses the steel frame of the hulking Cylon as tinder to light the match for his cigar! Love the reaction of the beastly dumb thing!

It's a crying shame that, I suppose, Jane had other engagements, and had to be written out of the story. This is the part she was meant to play. Above everything else.

A lot to like, but of course, you have to look past the bits where you can almost literally see how they "connected the dots"... Notice how the Colonial Vipers seem to be images on sheets of plastic, and these sheets are moved AND OUTLINED against the star- spangled black velvet? But a fan tries just so hard NOT to notice.

Episode is a bit ruined by the Egyptology bit. Producers took the reasonably easy way out to let the ancient Pharaoh's capricious desires to have all those monuments built, do the work for them instead of designing a set-up of their own. Oh, how the detractors would scoff at the old TV classic for this!

Wholly unsatisfactory death scene, drawn out, loses impact, unconvincing, could have been done much better. Noticeably, Noah Hathaway could have played the part of Bambi without any makeup.
