Razor Premieres Tonight!

Source: Cinema Blend TV

If you’re a fan of Battlestar Galactica, chances are, you’ve already got your DVR set to record the special 2-hour “Razor” episode, which is set to air tonight (Saturday, 11/24) on Sci Fi. Having seen the episode in its entirety, I can say with all certainty that it’s definitely worth watching if you’re a fan of the series. Especially considering this is the only new BSG we’re going to see until next spring.

While “Razor” does feature most of the main characters from the series, the bulk of the story focuses on the Battlestar Pegasus, told from the perspective of Kendra Shaw, a crewmember who worked under Helena Cain. The episode takes place around the time that Lee Adama took over as commander of the Pegasus. Shaw has a hard time coming to grips with the person she’s become and is plagued by the memories she has of the things she saw and was ordered to do when Cain was running the show.

In the weeks leading up to the episode premiere, Sci Fi has been airing special “Razor” flashbacks. These flashbacks (see below) give us a brief glimpse into something that happened to Admiral Adama (who went by the name “Husker” back during the first Cylon war) when he was a young guy, on his first mission. The flashbacks aren’t actual clips from “Razor,” though the most relevant portion is shown at one point during the episode.

Battlestar Galactica: Razor premieres on SciFi on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 9:00 p.m. The DVD for the episode will be released on December 4th.

Hey, just watched Razor (advanced copy on DVD) and must say I was a bit disappointed. It's still good, but doesn't develop its characters or provide an interesting, cohesive story the way the series does. Read my review here...
