Storyline

Battlestar Galactica: The Resistance is an online series that aims to fill in the gaps between seasons two and three of the Re-imagined Series. The webisodes can be viewed through the official web portal at Syfy.com. The webisode series was written by Battlestar Galactica veterans Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, and directed by Wayne Rose. The entire series is 27 minutes long in total, divided into 10 episodes. While the Webisodes are included in the Region 1 DVD boxset of Season 3, they are not included in the Region 2 version. They are, however, included on all Blu-ray releases. In particular, the Webisodes chronicle Duck's and Jammer's motivations to become suicide-bomber and collaborator, respectively.

Trivia

None of the cast and crew involved with the webisodes actually got official credit for it, and this led to a legal battle between the Writers' Guild of America and NBC/Universal about how to handle internet-based content. Previously the internet-only content that TV series produced tended to be little more than extended trailers for the series, but Battlestar Galactica made an actual "bonus episode" which was a serious attempt to make an extra episode and actually advance the plot, which led to serious concerns about payment for them.

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.
