Did You Know?


Admiral Adama shaves his mustache with a Merkur "Vision" double-edged safety razor: a modern design of a shaving technology prevalent from the early 1900s through the early 1970s, when it was replaced by disposable, multi-bladed "cartridge" razors. His shaving technique, however, is much too aggressive for such a razor. If there was a blade present in the razor he was using, mashing it in to his face and dragging it downward, handle-down, Edward James Olmos would have suffered many cuts and horrible razor burn. Double-edged razors, still popular with shaving enthusiasts today, require a very light touch, and a very "shallow" shaving angle, with the handle at an approximately 45º angle to the face, depending on the razor.

Near the beginning of the episode after the scene with Tigh and his wife, you see Gaius Baltar talking about the Cylons being smug as the entering credits are rolling, if you watch closely, as it is easy to miss, as Gaius walks with the camera following him you can see a green screen where a window would be to the left of him briefly before it is blocked.

A space opera with real emotion. Simply excellent.
28 January 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I sat watching the second part of "Exodus" with my jaw open and tears in my eyes. "Battlestar Galactica" is proving to be one of the most genuinely moving pieces of television drama I've ever had the pleasure of watching. I was emotionally drained by the end of this second-half (in the best possible way).

The third series is proving bigger and better than any made-for-television sci-fi has any right to be. Scenes of the Galactica's assault on the mighty Cylons will linger with the viewer forever. We've seen space battles before but nothing in recent years has the same heart-pulling impact and originality as the scenes here. The images of space carnage are brilliantly realised and realistic.

Perhaps the most enjoyable "episode" so far, the two-part "Exodus" is strongly recommended.
