Not aged well
9 May 2019 | by keyopeSee all my reviews

I remember liking this episode when I watched it as a kid and again when I was older. However, having just revisited it, it is somewhat of a filler episode. It has potential. Starbuck sees an old flame, there's conflict because she has a new man. There's also some good political intrigue, but the episode stalls and feels out of place because it's mostly based around some characters that were never in the show before and will never be seen again after this episode. On paper it's a good episode and it has its moments, but it definite filler.
