The opening two episodes of Season 2 which start with a bang and simply do not stop. The crash survivors on Kobol are under Cylon attack! The Galactica has gotten lost! It finds its way back to the Fleet but has been boarded! OMG!
Resounding agreement. In addition to the things Wert has said, these episodes are the first times you get an idea why Adama keeps Tigh as XO. When it comes to personal/political/romantic matters, Saul Tigh is a fuck-up; when it comes to military matters, he rocks you like a hurricane. One reason why I like the New Caprica episodes, incidentally.
