I like mystery. I like suprises. I like change. I like the rug yanked out from under me (metaphorically).
But I dislike when all sense of cohesion and character consistency goes out the window. In every episode of this series, nothing was done with a countering force. No group could act unchecked. Change was fiercly contested.
Now everyone crumbles and and moves into crappy tent shanty town that looks like something out of an African save the children special. Starbuck gives up flying to play house in one of the shanty tents. Apollo decided to eat the rations of everyone who left galactica. Adama lets it all happen while growing a cheesy moustache.
Does it seem out of character for incredibly tough willed people like Apollo, Starbuck and Adama to just roll over??
Between the Apollo's fat suit, Adamas Moustache and Starbuck hair extensions, it felt like an SNL parody sketch of BSG, except here the actors are sort of playing themselves.
A perfect examply of why you should never extend an episode while dropping Acid. No box-set for me.
