BSG is back (no spoilers)

After tonight's episode of Battlestar Galactica, there are only 7 episodes left in the series. The show hit a slump in the third season which lasted into the early fourth season, but it's started to hit its stride again. Tonight's episode, in particular, pulls out an old plot device, but what's good is how they explore the little details of that event, the human side of what goes into something like this, and what comes out of it. Decisions have consequences on this show.

I started to lose faith in the show when it got all mystical; I'm glad to see the human element return (and in a more complex way than the early fourth season "Who can we trust?" gimmick). Tonight's episode wasn't one of the best by any means, but it is the kind of Battlestar I like.

Here's hoping the show can end on a high note! (Qualitywise, anyway. I don't necessarily expect this show to end on a high note storywise. :P)
