Sheba: [overly relaxed mood, very unusual for her] Starbuck, Apollo, you don't seem to get the point. Look, we're all saved, so relax.
Sheba: Come on, Apollo. Why don't you let me offer you a little consolation?

Excellent 2nd part
28 September 2018 | by keyopeSee all my reviews

The concluding part of War of the Gods is every bit as good as part 1. An excellent piece of sic fi writing, this episode has everything - mystery, action, suspense, religion, you name it.

The big secret about Count Iblis is revealed with impeccable timing, and it's a great twist. The first time I saw this two parter I was blown away by it. It's the kind of mystery that modern day superhero films should take a look at. Nothing is spooned to the audience, it's cleverly paced with a twist at the end. As a viewer you become involved in the mystery the same way you would with an episode of Alfred Hitchcock presents. This really is magnificent television.
