Troy and Dillon are teaching some of the children raised on the Galactica about what they can expect on Earth if and when they get to go there. But when their vessel is attacked by the Cylons, they escape. But because they can't make it back to the Galactica, they decide to land on Earth. So they try to make the children appear to be like children on Earth. They dress them as scouts and Troy and Dillon pretend to be scout masters. Their landing is detected by the Air Force, so a Colonel shows up to investigate. Written by

Is jumping two sharks even possible?
14 January 2016 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

It's tempting to make a joke about a shark-jumped franchise clearing a second shark, but i don't want to overstate the watchability of the first three episodes. This two-part affront to plausibility, however, may be where your clearest memories of the show's awfulness reside - in the image of Galactica children posing as boy scouts, while being able to leap twenty feet because of planet-side gravity differential. It all actually starts rather excitingly, with a cylon attack on a stray fleet ship (a sequence, however, that begs the question of where the line is between stock footage and clip show). Troy and Dillon manage to rescue twelve kids, but they can't make it back to the fleet, so they land on Earth and three of them get sick from polluted water, so they take on a chemical plant in an environmental crusade. Along the way, they're chased by two motorcycle CHiPies (including an uncredited James Daughton - ANIMAL HOUSE, SPIES LIKE US). Dr. Zee is now played by Patrick Stuart (EXIT TO EDEN, ANDY RICHTER CONTROLS THE UNIVERSE), who gets to use his own voice but quickly proves that the problem wasn't the actor. We've got a fumbling sheriff, a conscienceless colonel, and a slimy industrialist (Mike Kellin - THE WACKIEST SHIP IN THE ARMY, THE JAZZ SINGER) who has an "it's a wonderful life" moment with Adama inside a UFO, and actually shows delightful comedic chops. The more ominous the moment, the greater you may laugh - that has to count for something, right?
