The most memorable TV Watch moments of 2007

Battlestar Galactica, March 4: Kara Thrace dies

For me, the big moral point this whole episode spins upon is the idea that we are what our experiences make us, good or bad. Would Kara have been both the abject screw-up and the best pilot ever if she hadn’t had the childhood she did? Not that I’m defending crippling child abuse — and that shot of her hand almost getting slammed in the door was one of the creepiest things I’ve seen in a while — but that hell helped craft the person that Kara is. — Marc Bernardin
