Did this episode remind anyone of the original (1978) Battlestar Galactica episode "The Lost Warrior," or does no one remember that show anymore?

So, for once he's thinking about the victims of his mercy on the Daleks, the Master, etc. There are things that definitly set off The Doctor.

Or just about any other science fiction series ever done.

I think the act of Congress that mandates a Groundhog Day episode also mandates an Old West episode, although I'm pretty sure the Groundhog Day episode must come first. And unlike other acts of Congress, this one seems binding on the rest of the world as well.

It took me 2 weeks to watch this episode because I was dreading the Old West theme. And I wasn't wrong.
The whole thing seemed cliche.

Is there any way we can get that Act of Congress revoked?

Star Trek used it three times - TOS, Next Generation, and Enterprise each had an Old West episode.

Credit to DW for being set in the actual Old West, however.

I think each ST series had its own distinct responsibilities under the Congressional Genre Show Required Episodes Act...
