Battlestar Galactica: Razor

by Sean Hackbarth

For me television watching has come to catching the Green Bay Packers on Sundays and squeezing in an hour or two every other day during the week to decompress from campaign work. But I did take time out to watch Battlestar Galactica: Razor. My feeling is much like Jonah Goldberg’s. It was okay. Nothing spectacular, but it’s BSG. There hasn’t been new episodes in ages so I’ll take any fix I can get.

As to the grand BSG epic, what I took away was Starbuck is part of the problem and the universe is metaphysically circular. What that means for earth or what sort of earth the fleet finds I don’t know.

Jonah did have a great ending to his review:

Anyway, it was still fun and I have no doubt the “uncut” DVD version of Razor will explore the Cain’s relationship with Number 6 more fully. Why? Because she’s a lesbian.

The DVD is going on my Christmas list.

Wow…didn’t have you pegged has a BSG watcher….but that’s great news!

Looking forward to the DVD myself…..

I actually screened Razor on the big screen down in Chitown on the 12th…it looked 10 times better in the theater…..

Galactica would translate well to the big screen, sadly, I don’t think the box office numbers would be there….


Pete, I watched the cheesy original when I was a Star Wars-addicted kid. I had to try the new, grown-up version, and I loved it. It’s some of the best television I’ve ever seen.


Razor gives the fans enough of the old school BSG, talking about fate, destiny and the Jihad between the Cylons and the humans, while still bringing in a new story of Kendra Shaw.
