What the series should have done..., 20 April 2007
Author: gritfrombray-1 from Ireland

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This episode started off with the only decent Cylon battle in the series. The Viper pilots were all new and had freshly designed helmets and all! During the battle the Cylons destroyed or damaged several agro ships leading to a food shortage in the fleet, prompting a first colonial settlement on Earth. The concept of a farming colony on Earth to supply the fleet with food was a brilliant one and could have been explored on a much larger scale. Some of the previous episodes had been a bit silly and not really what the show should have been doing. The episode was the end of a potentially excellent series with Troy and Dillon in. This show had so much potential and room for character development. When are we going to see this on DVD worldwide?
