Synopsis


The space opera's third season picks up a short time after the Colonial fleet was forced to abandon the bulk of humanity on the harsh but habitable New Caprica as the Cylons descended upon the defenseless settlement. While the commanders of Galactica and Pegasus, Adm. William Adama (Edward James Olmos) and Cdr. Lee "Apollo" Adama (Jamie Bamber), clash over the admiral's plan to rescue those left behind, resistance guerrillas led by Col. Saul Tigh (Michael Hogan) use suicide bombers to strike back at the Cylon occupiers on New Caprica. The occupation produces heroes, traitors and hostages-the last best personified by Capt. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace (Katee Sackhoff), who becomes a Cylon's love interest. Captive Cylon Sharon (Grace Park) redeems herself when she agrees to help Adm. Adama rescue the citizens of New Caprica. While the rescue operation unfolds, defrocked president Gaius Baltar (James Callis) locates Sharon's Cylon-human baby and accepts an invitation from D'Anna (Lucy Lawless) to join the Cylons. The large-scale rescue proves successful, but the occupation leaves emotional scars on the survivors, particularly Starbuck and Tigh, who stir up dissent within the ranks. Adm. Adama endeavors to heal his crew with a boxing event that ends up being cathartic for Starbuck and Apollo. While trying to prove his worth to the Cylons, Baltar helps D'Anna probe the mythical "final five" humanoid Cylons-who have become lost to the rest of their race-an investigation that doesn't sit well with the Cylon Cavil (Dean Stockwell). A food shortage forces the Colonial fleet to traverse a dangerous passage to an algae planet, home to a mysterious temple that houses a veritable road map to Earth, which the Cylons also covet. The tragic loss of a troubled crewmate and a sensational trial onboard Galactica become game-changing milestones during the fleet's quest for Earth. ~ Michael Chant

    BSG is one of the very best dramas ever created for television. Superb acting with a great storyline and it all leads to a very satisfying conclusion.

    The beginning of the season is surprise to the audience, jumping months ahead in time from the last moment of the previous season ( which had the Cylons arriving at New Caprica to take control ). The first few episodes show the desperation of some characters planetside, while Big Adama tenaciously tries to get Galactica and Pegasus trained for an attack to return to New Caprica to rescue those left behind. The rescue finally comes in Exodus, pt2, with lots of explosions and Adama's bold plan put into place. The next five episodes are mostly characters tending to emotions, a few more of the moral/ethical crisis moments that often happen on the series, and some action toward the fleet heading to earth. In the next four episodes ( The Passage, Eye of Jupiter, Rapture, Taking A Break.... ) the fleet finds a planet with a hidden temple that apparently was left by the thirteenth tribe; unfortunately the Cylons happen to also show up, soon followed by an even more potentially deadly problem. After surviving that crisis, which features the retrieval of Baltar, the next four episodes basically fill as filler, again more of the moral/ethical crisis situations than storyline progress, except for a big problem that Starbuck has. The last three episodes really roll ( Son Also Rises, then the two episode unit Crossroads ), with one situation resolved in part 2 of Crossroads but a new group of cliffhanger situations arise.

    This is an outstanding, well written, directed and acted TV series. It is unfortunate that so many people consider it beneath them because it is labeled "Sci-Fi". Highly recommended.

    Finally, season three is out! This is one of the smartest, well-made sci-fi series ever made. Excellent cliff hangers after each episode keeps you begging for more. This is the best season so far, mixing politics, science, religion and romance in the most intriguing ways. This DVD set is a must-have and will provide years of marathon TV viewing enjoyment.

    Season 3 starts off right were the pulse pounding season 2 left off. The season continues the journey of the battlestar Galactica and the remaining human fleet. The story dives deeper into each character to culminate to one of televisions best hour in the season finale! It will leave you breathless and yearning for more! A word of advice, watch the webisodes on disc 2 first, as they bridge the gap between season 2 and 3.
