Here's what others are saying (no, not The Others though I bet Henry Gale is a fan):

"The first 15 minutes are capped by one of the most chilling yet ultimately senseless murders in the series." [...] "You can enjoy ”Battlestar” as one of the best, well-made, written and acted sci-fi series in the history of the medium. You can also see it as the single most devastating, incisive critique of the Iraq war ever promoted in pop culture."
Boston Herald

" the spirit of getting the word out -- not because Sci-Fi put on a full media blitz, which it did, but because the show really is that good -- you are hereby notified that the sci-fi geeks are not kidding this time. "Battlestar Galactica" not only lives up to its sci-fi gold-standard reputation but also should be considered straight up as one of television's most appealing dramas, no matter the genre."
San Francisco Chronicle

"A baby screams as his mother is taken by armed men in the middle of the night. A prisoner, one eye gouged out, huddles in a dank corner of a bare cell. Men and women clad in gray, ragged clothing, their faces tight with anxiety, mill around the entrance to a prison, hoping for news of a loved one, while in a nearby ramshackle rebel outpost, a man who thinks he has nothing to live for straps on a vest full of explosives. These aren't scenes from the evening news. They're images from the season premiere of "Battlestar Galactica" (9 p.m. Friday, Sci Fi), which, in its third season, provides a unpredictable, fascinating take on events dominating real-world headlines. "
Chicago Tribune

"Battlestar" isn't just another Sci Fi Channel trifle. Heavy-duty acting and harsh social and political commentary over the first two seasons cemented its reputation as serious drama. In our so-called golden age of drama, filled with ambitious series people aren't avidly watching, "Battlestar" is a show people plan their Friday nights around. Its fan base is devoted, obsessive even, but relatively small: the second season averaged 2.3 million viewers. Fervent initiation through DVD exposure might grow the audience, though. "
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"But the secret to "Battlestar ," as one of my colleagues keeps saying, is not to think of it as science fiction. This is a show about religion, politics, parent-child relationships, and the moral dilemmas of insurgency. Consider it a workplace drama where the business is armed resistance."
Boston Globe
