Underrated
6 February 2012 | by s_sondergaardSee all my reviews

This stand-alone episode is much better than "Black Market". It shows a lot of failures in the chain of command, it has a new approach to genocide and it's shows how hard it is to get through with pointing out errors in the medical world.

A great example of "Battlestar Galactica"s diversity and how it works without space battles, cylon-attacks or love affair.

What I don't understand is people disliking this episode when it shows what the series is really able to do - blend social comments with a huge war in space. It may not be "The Wire" but for a more commercial series it delivers much more that you could ever ask for.
