  • All drama no SF - and this used to be a good thing!

    I thought I'd be the last to complain about BSG having loads of drama with a splash of SF to boot; after all, I considered this series to be drama first and SF second. However, in this, the last season, I really hoped for the full throttle. This is exactly what we got with the first two episodes, and now we are back in the set-up mode for the obvious payoff in the last few episodes of season 4.1. Somehow (which was not the case the first three seasons) I am NOT happy about this. More pathos with mourning, identity? We had it. Roslin dying. Ditto. More rage. Ydda yadda. The most interesting parts of the fable, dissention with Cylons and the search for Earth were not touched upon - meaning they will be in the next episode - bu also meaning this was a "dramatic filler" - but a whole episode of it?!
    I simply expected more from the best show on TV and was left wanting.
