Storyline

Scouting the planet reveals that there is no life except plants. The destruction occurred about 2,000 years earlier. Among the ruins, skeletons and wrecks of a different kind of Centurions are found. But closer examination of the skeletons reveals they are Cylon! Could the 13th Tribe really have been all Cylons? Chief Tyrol, Colonel Tigh, Sam Anders and Tory remember living on the planet and dying there. How did they get to the colonies? Starbuck finds a piece of her Viper, and despite Leoben's warnings, starts to look for the cockpit... Roslin loses her faith in the Scrolls of Pythia. Apollo and Dualla seem to get back together, but he needs to figure out what to tell to the people of the Fleet... A tragedy prompts Adama to confront Saul. Written by Toni Tapola, Finland

Trivia

The title is a reference to the folk song 'Goodnight, Irene': "Sometimes I live in the country / Sometimes I live in the town / Sometimes I have a great notion / To jump In the river and drown". This lyric has also inspired the title of the Ken Kesey novel 'Sometimes a Great Notion'. See more »

18 January 2009 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Waited patiently for this follow up to a stunning season mid break. As the alliance stand on a scorched Earth we get treated to more and more questions than were answered. The sets are truly stunning for this show. What happens is very confusing as is Tyrol's experience and will leave you reeling! Edward Olmos is stunning and carries the weight of the fleet and it's misfortunes. Michael Hogan is awesome and puts in a hell of a performance. Shock after shock comes in this. So get ready, for a real blast. The show has never been stronger. Are they actually on Earth? I wonder. I for one will be waiting with baited breath for a new episode every week...
