Early Reviews of "Scattered" (ep. 201)

Early reviews of the BSG Season 2 premiere have begun to trickle in. Here are two. Read at your peril.

Quality guides 'Galactica' as second season takes off
If the season premiere is any indication, "Battlestar" fans are in for another riveting, nail-biting journey as they join the ragtag survivors searching for refuge.
I was less thrilled with this statement:
The Caprica storyline, while interesting, received very little screen time in the season premiere. As the season unfolds, the writers may need to prune extra storylines that can't be adequately serviced.
Bad reporter. Shh!

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette had this to say:
It's a slam-bang hour that also serves up some "Battlestar" touchstones - religion, politics - while advancing the story a half-step and introducing another Cylon threat to the Galactica crew.
I liked what he had to say about the Caprica storyline much more... (slightly spoilery so it's behind the cut):
On Caprica, Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) clashes with Helo (Tahmoh Penikett) over his faith in the second Cylon Sharon (Park again), who claims to be carrying his child.
