Battlestar-Galactica-The-Face-Of-The-Enemy.jpg

Like part one, the second webisode in the "Face of the Enemy" series (airing Dec. 15) feels like its over before it's hardly begun. Mostly, we get to see the six-man/Cylon crew of the missing raptor freaking out about being stranded with 20 hours of oxygen. There's also a quick scene with Gaeta's boyfriend begging Col. Tigh for a raptor and a pilot to start searching and doing so with enough earnest passion to tip Tigh off to his sexual orientation. I don't know if there's a Colonial Fleet version of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," but the gruff Tigh is at least sensitive enough to let the boyfriend go searching. I can't think of the issue of homosexuality getting addressed so far in the series, making it one of the few issues that hasn't been tackled. This webisode series seems to be built just for that very reason.

One of the eights seems to be... Sharon? But I don't know if it's "Boomer" Sharon or "Athena" Sharon. And the Galactica scene seems to be two days ahead of the Raptor scene. And it's all happening so fast. This is not the way for an impatient man to watch TV. The next installment comes on Wednesday, Dec. 17. Leave a comment if you've got something figured out that I don't.
