Did You Know?


Admiral Adama shaves his mustache with a Merkur/Solinger "Vision" double-edged safety razor, made in Germany: 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.

Best Episode of the Series to Date
23 November 2007 | by 1stbrigadeSee all my reviews

"Exodus: Part Two" is the best episode of the new "Galactica" series to date! The entire cast take their characters to new areas, making this a richly-performed experience. Michael Hogan gives his best performance to date as Colonel Tigh, bringing a humanity to the character that has not been seen until now. The rest of the cast does a fantastic job as well. The story is very powerful, as well as very exciting. This episode also features several twists and turns that will leave everyone on the edge of their seats until the climax. As a fan of the show, this episode showed that there is still life in this epic, powerful show. Great entertainment, and highly recommended! Grade: A+
