OK little webisode promotional affairs
12 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Here on IMDb I prefer to review TV shows by the season rather than episode by episode. Some people disagree and will review each episode but for me I struggle to have much to say about each 20 or 40 minute chunk of TV and find that the individual seasons are easier to appraise. So my problem here is that these webisodes essentially amount to about 15 minutes of viewing and were primarily designed as promotional pieces to tease fans about the return of Battlestar Galatica for a third season. I came across these having already started season 3 though, so this aspect of them was sort of wasted on me! What they do deliver is a certain amount of filling in of the gaps for a couple of the smaller characters within the resistance on occupied New Caprica.

Watching them having already seen the first few episodes means that they have more meaning than they would have done had I watched them first (as I was supposed to do) and they do distract in this way. They are fairly basic though and the online quality detracts a little from the normally impressive delivery in the series proper. The tight focus maybe fits with the characters moving into season 3 but it also hurts it because the viewer is interested in this new world that was created as season 2 ended but yet we are prevented from seeing very much of it – which again I guess is part of the tease that they were looking for when making them.

Worth seeing as a bridge between season 2 and 3 if you are getting into the show because they are a "completists" thing more than a necessary part of viewing the show, but don't expect much more than a certain amount of expansion around two of the minor characters in the first stages of season 3 who, to be frank, didn't need a lot of expansion or explanation narrative-wise.
