Shazad Latif (Penny Dreadful’s Dr. Henry Jekyll), Rekha Sharma (Battlestar Galactica, The 100), Kenneth Mitchell (Jericho’s Eric Green), Clare McConnell and Damon Runyon (DeGrassi: The Next Generation, Gangland Undercover) have signed on to boldly go in CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery.
After what seems like eons, V [ABC, Tuesdays, 9/8C] returns with Red Rain, an action packed episode of the sort that should have been run when the series premiered, last season.
Escape Velocity opens with Chief Tyrol given a poignant eulogy at Cally’s funeral and ends with Gaius Baltar in a [for him] most unusual position. In between, this is one of Galactica’s most intense episodes – even though there are no great Cylon battles or even much action at all.
After a rather ho-hum premiere, Battlestar Galactica seems to be moving back in the right direction. Where He That Believeth In Me tended to rehash the season three finale without adding much to the running story – except for the development of the Starbuck-Roslin situation – Six of One is almost chockfull o’ stuff.
