Clinic on the real nature of dramatic tension
31 December 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

One of the most powerful episodes in the entire series (a series which if memory serves was nominated for about 80 awards) is short on physical action but loaded to the gills with friction and what the French call "contretemps." Especially like the parallelism where attempts at democracy in both camps (human and Cylon) backfire, bigtime. The viewer is left with the unanswered question, is that because the latter are the creation of the former, and therefor suffer the same imperfections; or this is the nature of all life, whatever the source? Just when you think that things could not get any more interesting, Cally (as the logline says) finds out the truth about her husband (also ironic since even he does not know the truth about himself) and takes action.
