I’ve been a big fan since the mini-series.And yes, there have been a few lame duck episodes here and there, but overall this is one of the top two or three shows on TV (in my opinion, of course). Ain’t It Cool News has a mini preview here, and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I got while reading it. There is a ton of teasers there, although at the request of Ron Moore no episode specific spoilers. All of this took place at a pre-screening on Wednesday and was followed by a Q&A with Ron Moore, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackoff and Tricia Helfer. Follow the link above, its not a long read, but well worth the time.
Here’s just a taste:
Is it true, as you intimated last week, that the focus this week shifts back on the circumstances of Starbuck’s resurrection?
It could be argued that Starbuck and her miracle viper are key components of this week’s story.
Are you sure this is the biggest “Galactica” ever?
Bigger than the episode that ended with Boomer putting two bullets in Bill Adama’s chest?
Bigger than the episode that leapt ahead a year?
Bigger than the episode that revealed the Watchtower Four?
An insane amount of tension among the Watchtower Four now that D’Anna can identify them; handprints will be permanently squeezed into sofa arms across America Friday night as a deadly showdown between Lee and D’Anna escalates. Then the final act kicks the episode, the season and the series into the stratosphere. “Revelations” is one aptly titled installment. You will revel in the reveals the episode bestows and curse those you’re denied.
* Moore confirmed again that the fleet will get to Earth by the series finale and that he originally had a number of ideas for what the fleet would find there. “We X’ed off a few immediately.”
* Moore said he did not have the series finale in his head as he wrote the original miniseries, but figured it out midway through the first regular season. Moore seemed to hint that Leoben’s line about “All this happened before and will happen again” is significant.
I get the impression there won’t be many explosions this week, but the drama should be top-notch. See the trailer for “Revelations” from scifi.com here.
