Download Battlestar Galactica Episodes at Amazon UnboxShow: Battlestar Galactica (Sci Fi)
Episode: “He That Believeth In Me” – Season Premiere (Season 4)
Premiere Date: Friday, April 4th, 2008
Rating: 3½ out of 4 stars

Quick Synopsis: Holy frak, Starbuck’s back!

Long Synopsis: Starbuck returns during a battle with the Cylons and says she has been to Earth and will take everyone there. Upon her return to Galactica, she is taken for a full medical evaluation, as everyone is in disbelief and thinks her return could be another Cylon trick. Meanwhile, the four recently revealed Cylon models are dealing with the notion and trying to come to terms with it. And then…

Review: Sci Fi Channel was kind enough to send over a screener of the fourth, and final, season premiere of Battlestar Galactica, yet those that were lucky enough to get one, had to sign an agreement that we wouldn’t spoil the episode. Especially, in regards to what happened in the last 15 minutes of the show. Not that I would’ve spoiled things for you anyway, as I don’t like to know too much, myself, going in to a new episode, season, movie, etc.

So, now you are thinking, what happens in the last segment of the show? How does it end? Well, you will just have to watch tomorrow night, Friday, April 4th and find out for yourself. I will say, that if you’ve been anxiously awaiting Battlestar Galactica’s return, you will not be disappointed.

I will tell you how it begins, as the fourth season opens with a bang. Well, a lot of them. The episode starts off with one frakkin’ awesome space battle, as the fleet is being barraged by the Cylons. It is too bad that in only 10 short weeks, we will probably have to wait another year before the final 10 episodes of season four make it to air.

As you would expect, the acting is outstanding, the special f/x are great and the show leaves you wanting more. Wow, could I be anymore general in my praise for the episode?

So, why don’t you come back after the Battlestar Galactica season four premiere and let us know what you thought about the episode? Especially, those last 15 minutes.

The battle scene at the beginning is quite good and long. I got a screener DVD as well – the ending was pretty good. Here’s my review: http://blog.filmjabber.com/2008/04/03/review-battlestar-galactica-season-4-tv-premiere/
