Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Trailer is Here

If you’re anything like you’re probably a little tired of Battlestar Galactica after a weak Season 3 and SciFi Channel fumbling over a proposal to split down its final season into two. Unlike the Battlestar Galactica Razors promo, the Battlestar Galactica Season 4 Promo pretty much gives you the stuff you expect, Baltar has become the center of a cult with magical healing powers which I suppose draws him even closer to the original Baltar of the real Battlestar Galactica. Starbuck is back but no one trusts her and she’s throwing a fit. Her information about Earth is treated as a Cylon ploy and she’s apparently locked up. The President shoots someone or tries to. Sol is losing it.

In other words it’s the usual Battlestar Galactica soap opera. I’ll watch it but I have trouble caring about it. Say what you will about it, the original Glen Larson series was genuinely epic. Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica can do the small dramatic character moments but it long ago lost whatever ability it had to be epic, as it did in Season 1 and occasionally 2 and all it is is a bunch of screaming people in space with dysfunctional relationships.
