Great characters brilliant actors.Rating: 4 likes, 0 dislikes
What I like about this series of Battle star is the development of themes that build upon the psychological aspects of the characters and the really great cast of very talented actors that bring an almost Shakespearean like intensity to this great epic as it quests through the universe after Earth and salvation for the human race.
It is just wonder full to see Edward James Olmos, such a familiar face in the background of many movies and TV shows emerge as Admiral Adama and give such power and compassionate energy to this great patriarchal character
I just adore the character Kara "star buck" Thrace played with real force by Katee Sachoff that brings a strong and conflicted heroic female character that ain't no lady but is all viper flying, hard drinking, fist punching and uniquely beautiful dazzling woman.
Jim Callis and Tricia Helfor as Giaus Baltor and The after image of cylon No six are an amazingly diabolical and extremely funny couple showing all the flawed obsession of insecure sexual control and fluctuating domination.
How heroic and venerable are Sharon Valerii and the noble Helo played by the beautiful Grace Park and the equally beautiful Tahmoh Penikett
Mary McDonnel is lovely as the beleaguered but determined Madame President Laura Roslin
Jamie Bamber as Lee Adama is great, especially in that courtroom scene at the trial of Gaius Baltar and that Lawyer guy ( who was that brilliant actor ?)
Michael Hogan as vicious Saul Tigh, just so annoyingly awesome.
Callum Keith Rennie as Leoben, really awesome again.
Speaking of awesome performance Michelle Forbes ( wasn't she ensign Rowe in next generation ) as Admiral Helena Cain was a fearsome and sinister character that is an unforgettable bad girl.
I have worked around many actors in theaters, backstage and making sets etc and out of all that I have a real appreciation of the art and craft of performers.
I love watching this show, a great and brilliant ensemble of awesome actors.
