A Solid Entry
9 September 2010 | by (Asheville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Most of the time, when Dirk Benedict's credit comes up, I think, "Ha ha, more like JERK Benedict!" even though I know it's not funny. For the large part of this series, Benedict's Starburk character has been the unfunny comic relief.

This episode is different, though. Starbuck, shot down on a Cylon-controlled Medieval-era planet, has to rely on his wits and leadership skills, rather than his charm and one-liners, and he shows himself to be an extremely adaptable and talented leader. His character rose a bit in my estimation.

As a bonus, you'll see more Cylons than ever in this episode, as well as "an earlier version" of the Lucifer Cylon, called Spector. It's a lot of fun to watch the two sneeringly jockey for position with Baltar. Of course, when one of you is voiced by Jonathan Harris, there's not much contest, is there? Overall, a good solid entry where the humor and the desperation balance each other well. Recommended.
