Does anyone laugh at this show like I do? Just a lot of the things that happen in the show seem to me like its either written by idiots, or for idiots. I am not trying to criticize anyone who likes the show nor say that the show is all garbage; but so much of it seems so ridiculous that I laugh at most episodes.
The reason I am bringing this up is because I want to see if other agree or if I am the only one that feels this way. There are too many scenes or sub-plots that so are ridiculous that it ruins the show for me.
I just watched an episode in which the Chief's wife walked into an airlock with a child. I just don't understand why? Really, she wouldn't alert someone that her husband was a cylon? Or maybe ask him about it? No, she just walks out to an airlock and does what? What was she gonna do? Then she hands her child off to a cylon. Seriously, sleep medication would know you out, not knock you stupid. And while we are on the topic of cylons, why would Baltar not tell anyone on the ship that he knew there were 7 or so cylons on the ship when Boomer told him? In the first episode, when they had to jump every 33 minutes, why was the whole ship up for 7 straight days? Ships, as common sense would dictate, would have a sleeping rotation for all crew. A ship has to operate 24 hours a day in peace and war, and has enough crews to do so, why is this one the exception? Why were no pilots killed after flying high stress combat missions 7 days straight with no sleep? I don't expect people to know that crew rest of 8 hours is required for every crew day (12 hours of flying), but would you drive a car on the free-way after not sleeping for 7 days? I thought not.
Just so many ridiculous situations that I don't care to list them, and not trying to slam a decent story, but too many laughable moments makes this show so hard too take serious. Does anyone feel this way too, or is it just me and I should not watch any sci-fi shows?
