Synopsis
On a mission to secure food for the fleet, Starbuck is tricked into becoming sheriff on an agro colony, a job complicated by marauding, swinelike aliens known as the Borays, and an amourous Siress with her eye on Adama. [DVD]

Problems
None

Factoids
- Ships in the fleet destroyed: two.

Remarkable Scenes
- The external shots of the agro ships were cool.

My Review
And BSG 1978 chalks up an episode full of cliche and silliness. I was really looking forward to this episode. I couldn't wait to see how the RTF solved its food shortage problem, but the serious survival issue became a silly romance with a touch of generic western sheriff nonsense. That, and... ANOTHER habitable planet. WTF? Who needs Earth when every planet in every planetary system seems to be habitable? In any case, I concede an extra point for giving us a chance to see Adama get more to do, showing us some neat shots of the argo ships, and the episode at least trying to tackle a real issue that the fleet is facing. Plus, as ridiculous as the episode is, it is somewhat cute if you try not to take it too seriously, despite the seriousness of the issue.

No fan commentary yet.
