Critic Reviews

  1. 100
    One of TV’s boldest and best dramas.
  2. 100
    This is a show about religion, politics, parent-child relationships, and the moral dilemmas of insurgency. Consider it a workplace drama where the business is armed resistance.
  3. One of TV's most invigorating and intellectually stimulating series.... provocative television that transcends its genre.
  4. 100
    Filled with strong writing, a colorful gallery of vivid characters and a rocking good mix of cool dialogue and explosive action, "Battlestar Galactica" rolls on as an intergalactic entertainment classic.

    "Galactica" is so beautifully designed, shot, edited and acted that you can practically smell and taste its emotional validity.
  6. "Battlestar Galactica" is one of the most politically relevant and necessarily bleak series on television today.
  7. "Battlestar Galactica" not only lives up to its sci-fi gold-standard reputation but also should be considered straight up as one of television's most appealing dramas, no matter the genre.
  8. Any show that can accommodate decadent cruelty, tragic bravery, and political divisiveness is one you ought to be watching, frakkin' spaceships or not.
  9. 90
    [The] third season... provides a[n] unpredictable, fascinating take on events dominating real-world headlines.
  10. The acting, writing and directing are superb.
  11. More relevant and biting than it has ever been.
  12. 90
    The uninitiated may continue to write off "Battlestar Galactica" as the remake of a mediocre show, or as the domain of science fiction fans alone, but those who've watched the show more than once or twice know better.
  13. It boldly goes where no man has gone before.
  14. 75
    "Battlestar" is many cuts above the usual outer-space shoot-'em-up.

All the while the series was able to retain a sense of realism, dealing with controversial issues ranging from terrorism to religion in a thought provoking manner as only the very best sci-fi shows are able to.

    Aside from a couple of slightly dull episodes this was every bit as good as the first season with truly game changing events taking place throughout that affected all the characters from that point onwards. This is a must buy whether you are a sci-fi fan or not.
