So far, season four has run a consistent pattern of hit/miss, hit/miss. This being the fourth episode, it was a miss.
Tyrol's self-loathing and grief; Baltar's madness and God-complex; Tory's growing narcissism; Tigh's losing his sense of self; Lee nobly struggling to ensure that Baltar's civil rights are protected so that he can become a threat to everyone again; Six feeling conflicted about causing the deaths of billions of people (but she learned to be a better person afterwards).
This episode screams out "SELF INDULGEANCE" and does little to further the overall story. With a limited number of episodes remaining before the series wraps up for good, we can ill afford to waste even one on a meandering mess like this one turned out to be.
