I'm sure you'll all be relieved to hear that Galactica's back to fighting form, warming up with a "Dana Delaney as terrorist" episode that was good but not great and then doing really well this week, despite the A-plot being predictable from minute one. The B-plot kicked ass, especially since I thought it might wander into moralizing or hand-wringing, but instead wandered into political backstabbing, which is awesome. Gaius Baltar would be TV's awesomest slimeball if Logan Echolls weren't running around over on Veronica Mars. And even though it contained not one single surprise, the A-plot was still pretty compelling.

And that's really all I've watched this week. I'm behind on everything else.

I mean, I watched Conan the Barbarian last night, which is incalculably long for having so little dialogue, but that hardly counts.

That Dana Delaney episode was crap and you know it. Last Friday's ep, however? Pretty sweet.

And yes, Conan the Barbarian is a three-day mini-series.

It was not nearly as much crap as the Black Market episode, and was about equal in crap to the Scar episode. I am excited for next week's Boomer-who-got-shot episode. Cylons are cool.

You're correct on all counts.

"Scar" was loads better than "Tombstone's Wife Goes Berserk."

And "Tombstone's Wife..." was better than "Other Black Guy in Predator Somehow Kills Fat Battlestar Commander."

I was sort of hoping that after Home Alone Dad was offed that Adama would appoint William Atherton to be the new Pegasus commander. You know, to continue the whole "Pegasus commanders must be dicks" theme.
