"The Woman, King" reactions & poll

A Helo-centric episode at last! Here's what the critics had to say:

  • Entertainment Weekly

  • This episode of Battlestar Galactica is brought to you by Tahmoh Penikett's crazy oblique muscles. Man, I'd have bad dreams too if I were the mayor of cubicle city, like poor Helo. Could you read the longing on his face when he kissed Sharon goodbye and she ran off to the (relatively) carefree life of a pilot?...

  • TV Guide

  • This show never disappoints...

  • TV Blend

  • There wasn’t any overall plot progression this episode, but that’s made up for by a great little episode to expose more of Helo’s character...

  • BuddyTV

  • Tahmoh Penikett as Helo ROCKS. If this episode said anything it's that we should definitely see more Helo on Battlestar Galactica. He is sort of omnipresent anyways, but 'The Woman King' proved that Helo can carry a Battlestar Galactica arc all on his own...

  • Alan Sepinwall

    Kept me fairly engaged throughout. A lot of credit for that goes to Tahmoh Penikett, who's really matured as an actor as the series has gone along and was able to carry a fairly trite and predictable storyline.
What'd you think of the episode? A new reaction poll at right!

You can watch a longer version of the Helo-Adama deleted scene here.
