TV Squad's Review of the Captain's Hand

TV Squad has posted up their review for last night's episode:

Battlestar Galactica: The Captain's Hand

There was a lot of way-paving in this episode, especially with regards to the future of the presidency. Baltar sneaks in for some significant lines, ones that finally, once and for all, show that his name will be on the election ballot when the time comes, right there next to the madam.
Another thing to consider is the new law put into effect regarding abortions. My first thought is that this will likely affect the Cylon baby, once it's born. Will they try to apply this new law to that case, as it'll be a hybrid child?
This episode worked well in making the viewers feel satisfied with the end to Commander Garner's (was that his name?) command of the Pegasus, and then the promotion of Lee to Commander.
It also looks like the Lee and Duella relationship is real and possibly here to stay for at least a while. I think a lot of people don't like the pairing because they want to see Lee with Starbuck, which is likely something we'll see come and go throughout the series.
Next week it looks like we see life through the eyes of a reborn Cylon, and episode I, for one, can't wait to see.
Current fleet population: 49,579

"Because people want to see starbuck and apollo together"

They do!?!?

I for one do not!!!

I know you yourself didn't write this, but I feel the necessity to point out that the reason I'm not too pleased with apollo and D is... well... billy. It's been only the month and they're in the honeymoon period!?!?
