TV Geek Out 63: Battlestar Galactica, "Sometimes a Great Notion"

Battlestar Galactica returned to television recently after a long rest in the middle of its fourth and final season. After the bleak cliffhanger fans were left with, it's no surprise that this first installment is a somber affair. "Sometimes a Great Notion" explores the reactions of the fleet to being robbed of their main (and for many only) source of hope for the future. Losing the will to live is a common response of many of the characters, including, but not limited to one very shocking suicide. However, despair and grief express themselves in many ways, and the reactions of Adama and Roslin are particularly disturbing as well. TV Geek Out's sole BSG geek, Dana, tackles a brief rundown of where things left off mid-season before jumping in and exploring this poignant episode.
