Episode cast overview, first billed only:


The attack to rescue everyone on New Caprica begins. The Galactica encounters four rather than the expected two Cylon Basestars. The end appears in sight but they get help from a welcome but unexpected source. On the planet below, Tyrol and Anders lead the attack to free everyone from the prison. Anders finds Starbuck but she won't leave without Kacey. Her successful return to the Galactica results in mixed emotions. Colonel Tigh must decide what to do about his wife Ellen after she admits to giving the rendezvous coordinates to the Cylons. Hera doesn't make it off the planet. Written by garykmcd

7 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I have to agree with other comments here. If this is not the best episode for any TV series ever, it's certainly damn close. IMO, yes, it's the best.

Just a couple of points:

Acting: Michael Hogan - Edward James Olmos --- Need to say more? Olmos/Adama is imposing as ever, his speech (Exodus Part 1) is just delightful; on Part 2, he doesn't even need to speak too much to deliver great acting. And if there were any justice in this world, the Academy of Television would beg on its knees to Hogan to accept an Emmy for his portrait of Tigh. Just the scene with his wife would be enough for that. And this guy needs just one eye to perform superbly!!!

Action sequences: nothing on TV can compare with this. It's not just awesome special effects (enough money can buy them), it's also impeccable timing to ensure a roller-coaster.

The low point, I think, is the whole Baltar storyline. James Callis is one of the best in the cast, but the story itself sounded a bit too weak. The nuke plot made very little sense, and the whole thing about Hera... what the heck is about her??? Even so, you can (have to!) forgive these small nuisances in such a wonderful episode.

Not every episode of BSG is worth watching it, moreover on this irregular Season 3, but "Exodus" alone is more than enough to make me watch all the remainder of the season and the next one.
