Also TV GUIDE recently ranked the top 100 television episodes of all time in their June 15th issue. The only BSG episode on the list was Blood on the Scales which came in at #43.
Really, in season 4, the two parter The Oath and Blood on the Scales were the most representative of what BSG is all about.
Blood on the Scales had a propulsive plot, lots of action, but with great character moments. The focus of Michael Angeli's script was really on the relationships between Apollo/Starbuck, Roslin/Adama, Adama/Tigh, and even Felix and Baltar.
