Straight back to the action!, 31 October 2010
Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom
*** This review may contain spoilers ***
Season Two of Battlestar Galactica starts the moment Season one ended,
with Commander Adama seriously injured in the bridge after Boomer shot
him, with Helo, Starbuck and Sharon back on Caprica and with the Chief,
Cally, Baltar and a few others trapped on Kobol after their crash. We
are immediately thrown into the action as the crew rush to save the
commander a Cylon base star appears and the fleet is forced to jump.
Due to a delay in sending the updated coordinates Galactica finds
itself separated from the fleet with no doctor aboard just when he is
needed most. On Caprica Starbuck can't trust Sharon the Cylon and on
Kobol things go badly wrong when the group forget to check they have
both medical kits and find they need them after one of the group is
wounded. With no other way to find the fleet they are forced to jump
back to Kobol and recalculate the coordinates using a networked
computer; something Adama would never allow.
This was a great opening to the season as there was no time between this season and the last and we were immediately into the action. The action continued both with Galactica and on the surface of Kobol, both story lines featured fights with the Cylons; surprisingly the one involving three people on the surface was more exciting than the one involving a large scale battle in space. As I've come to expect the acting was really good, especially from Michael Hogan who was great as Col. Tigh, a man forced to take a command he never sought. I also find Nicki Clyne's character growing on me, early on I wasn't so keen on Cally but she is rapidly becoming one of my favourites.
