Revelations Review: A Badly Cut Diamond

Still a diamond, but a massive disappoinment. If you were to take a rare and precious giant gemstone, say a 100-carat diamond, and cut it in such a way as to waste much of its mass, and create facets that are not geometric but askew and lopsided, and fail to polish it to a fine clarity you get the idea of what went terribly wrong with Battlestar Galactica's mid-season finale episode Revelations. I expected radiance and sparkle, most of all clarity at last to some of the inner secrets of this treasure. I seem to be alone with my critical review amongst the nearly universal praise the episode is receiving elsewhere, but I've detailed carefully what I see as the episode's shortcomings.

Still no full review, eh? I guess we have to wait 'til 2009 for that, too.
