Battlestar Galactica - Bastille Day & Acts of Contrition

This week I've watched episodes 3 and 4 of season 1. I won't go into them in detail, you can read the details in battlestarwiki, but the highlight of episode 3 was Tom Zarek vs. Apollo. Zarek is played by Richard Hatch, who was playing Apollo on the Original Series. We now also have a very interesting election to wait for... Other than that, a very standard prison riot episode, with some political drama (freedom fighter vs terrorist).

Cally was shot in the in the stomach on the prison ship, but it didn't take her long, and she is back up for the next one, although Lee Adama still looks pretty banged up from his prison ordeal. In this one Bill Adama finds out that Starbuck is responsible for Zack's death. That scene is one of the strong ones in this episode, as it looks like he is really holding himself from hitting her (...walk out of this cabin...while you still can... ). So we learn more about Zack's death, we get new cadets (with one, Bodie Olmos, son of Edward James Olmos, a.k.a. Bill Adama), and we get one Starbuck, ejecting to a foreign planet.
