The outstanding second season of 'Battlestar Galactica' continues and now
we have two Battlestars for the price of one.
After the midseason cliffhanger saw the Battlestar Pegasus return to the
fleet, the second season continues to maintain its unbelievable high standard
by the mini series and the first one and a half seasons. When it comes to
science fiction television at the moment, Ronald D. Moore's reimagining
of the classic 1970s Glen A. Larson show, bucks the trend of remakes been
unnecessary and awful. This show is exceptionally well written and acted,
pushing the boundaries of science fiction television beyond anything you
have watched before.
While this may be a 'reimagining' of the classic 70s series, there is a
lot that is new about the show. The structure is the same, a rag tag fugitive
fleet on a quest to find a shining planet known as Earth but Ronald D. Moore
and his creative team have taken the original idea and moved it to the next
level. After reintroducing the series to television with the mini series
and the exceptional first season, the second season moves the show on again.
The first half of the season kept up the electric pace of the first season
but this is not a show all about action.
The success of the new 'Battlestar Galactica' is all down to the quality
of the writing. With a strong emphasis on character, this is a show that
is all about story. A mix of politics, religion, honour and duty, the show
successfully interweaves public and military issues as they affect the fleet
and the people on the run from the Cylon menace. This season introduces
a new character dynamic however.
The latter half of the season sees the development of the Cylons. From
the introduction of the Resurrection Ship in the explosive two-part opener,
the show reveals more about the Cylon society that we have ever discovered
before but then they throw 'Downloaded' as us and more it revealed in that
show than every before. Introducing us to most of the Cylon models and then
showing us how to interact on a social level. It also explains some of the
many questions that we have asked since the beginning of the show and then
throws up some more.
The season half of the second season of 'Battlestar Galactica' is quite
simply stunning science fiction. With exceptional character development
and a continuing storyline that is compelling and completely engrossing.
This is the best science fiction show to come along in a very long time
and sets the standard for every other show to follow.
