The Galactica is having a boxing tournament of sorts. As Admiral Adama explains it to President Roslin, the purpose is to let the crew step into the ring and release their frustrations against an opponent of their choice, regardless of rank. As the crew watch or participate the fight, they recall past incidents between them. Adama calls out Chief Tyrol, who he let go live on New Caprica when he really needed him on the ship. He has a message for the crew on duty and obligations. Starbuck and Apollo have a long history together and have never fully comes to terms with their feelings for one another. During the initial establishment of the colony on New Caprica they made love after a drunken wild party and Apollo was ready for them to make a life together. Starbuck refused to accept their need for one another and married Sam Anders the very next day. Written by garykmcd

During the boxing session between Chief and the Admiral, when Chief enters the boxing ring, he has his dog tags on and does not take them off, but they mysteriously disappear in the next shots. (In the extended cut, after the chief is knocked down after the bell rings, he picks up his dog tags and throws them out of the ring.) See more »


Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama: [to Kara, as he looks at Anders who is passed out] Wow. You literally drank Anders under the table.

character development is good, but boxing, not so much
8 August 2010 | by jsmith47-797-232772See all my reviews

I have no problem with the episode being about character development, but dislike boxing. If they had cut out the boxing almost entirely, focusing on the flashbacks it would have been a far better episode. The problem is that since I have no interest in boxing, I spent more or less those entire scenes bored out of my mind waiting to get back to the flashbacks. I also question the placement of this episode. Having already had a filler episode, (a quite good one, but still filler), it seems like it would be better to get back to the virus plot line for at least an episode or two before this. I have not seen the extended episode, but it sounds like it had more of the flashback scenes, so it definitely would have been possible to create a cut that had minimal actual boxing.
