Best Battlestar Galactica Episodes

A list over the best episodes from Syfy's famous T.V.-series, Battlestar Galactica (2004 reboot)

The Top Ten
1 Daybreak - Parts 1-3

From season 4
I know people are going to hate me for this, but I loved the ending! It was brilliant, and you got to think about lots of things. This show couldn't have ended better.

Ignoring that dumb ending, the journey to get there is awesome and resolves all the plotlines

2 The Oath/Blood on the Scales

From season 4
This is the two-parter where Gaeta seizes control over the CIC, causing a violent uproar on the Galactica.

3 Downloaded

From season 2
In this episode, we get to see how the cylons live on Caprica. The best episode of the second season, no doubt.

4 Exodus - Parts 1-2

The space battle to rescue the survivors is super exciting

From season 3
A great two-parter that kicked off season 3 with a spark

5 Kobol's Last Gleaming - Parts 1-2

From season 1
Great ending to the amazing opening season. Starbuck and Helo's storyline on Caprica was great all the way.

2 plot twists: Boomer is a Cylon...and she shoots Adama

6 Faith

From season 4
Many exciting things happened in this episode, but the president struggling with her cancer was moments of extraordinary T.V.. Mary McDonnell was the star in this episode, no doubt.

7 Sometimes A Great Notion

From season 4
This is the episode where the Galactica finaly finds Earth

8 Resurrection Ship - Parts 1-2

From season 2
"Pegasus" was a good episode, but theese two that followed up was even better. Filled with action

Highlights are Adama and Cain's moral ambiguity, the battle music, and the final scene

9 Lay Down Your Burdens - Parts 1-2

Asks questions like: How far will you go for the greater good? When does one cross the line? Can you live with the consequences?

From season 2
Great final to a great season. New Caprica was a major plot-twist and the whole 1-year-later thing was a great idea.

10 Crossroads - Parts 1-2

After nearly leading humanity to doom on New Caprica, Baltar has to face an angry jury that wants him dead

From season 3
Baltar's trial was thrilling, and the of course (SPOLIERS AHEAD)... The return of Starbuck!

The Contenders
11 Revelations

Saul Tigh’s reveal that he is a Cylon, the fallout, and the search for Earth were all awesome

12 Pegasus

The Pegasus is what the Galactica could have been, when a military crew is in constant danger and without civilians for a moral compass

13 Home

The relationships between Boomer, Helo, Apollo, and Starbuck are staged well

14 Occupation

A very realistic portrayal of war, specifically military occupation
