Early Review: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA “He That Believeth in Me” (S04E03)

Battlestar Galactica - Katee Sackhoff as Kara

The day has finally come for the premiere of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Tonight, at 10pm the wait is over and Sci-Fi premieres the first episode of the fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica, “He That Believeth in Me.”

As I mentioned previously, I was one of the lucky people able to take a look at the first episode of Battlestar Galactica. First let me just say that there will not be any spoilers because I signed my silence in blood. What I will tell you is how good the episode is.

First, we all know that Starbuck returned at the end of last season and obviously there are some questions as to what happened to her. I will only say that it’s just nice to see the old Starbuck back and true to herself.

Second, Baltar was found not guilty at his trial and now has to hide from the people that still want him dead. Since Baltar is my favorite character, it’s fun to see what his twisted character is going to do next.

Third, the four cylons… first of all I am still in shock and if I am still in shock, it’s safe to say that they are pretty much still in shock. I can tell you that the episode gets into what the aftermath of the revelation is and how each character feels about their new identity.

Finally, Apollo, Adama, and the President have to deal with Starbuck’s return and their continued search for Earth. Same old story, except it never gets old.

When the episode ended, I was left wanting for more and wished I already had episode two to watch. I was actually ready for a Battlestar Galactica marathon.

Overall, the episode lays the ground and the tone for Season 4 and it looks like this season is going to be just like we have come to love them. Battlestar Galactica is an absolute MUST-SEE, there are no words to describe my excitement for Season 4.

So don’t forget to watch Battlestar Galactica tonight, April 4, on Sci-Fi at 10pm.
