  • Please Put BSG Out Of Its Misery

    Oi! With the exception of the first few episodes after (spoiler) the crew found earth, the second half of season 4 has limped along and is getting more and more absurd. We don't care about anyone, there are no stakes anymore and the mysteries remaining to be solved feel as if they've been made up as they go along anyway. These last few eps have felt like the writers padding out a tiny middle to get to - WE HOPE - a big kick ass finale. But if you're watching on DVD and getting bored, I think you could easily skip this one. The one before also had nothing happen, but at least it was stylish. Sadly this ep has one laughable, shark-jumpy moment when Adama has a "breakdown" in which he starts throwing paint all over a damaged part of the ship that's being patched - it's like a scene from a bad Lifetime movie when a victim decides to cut off all her hair, or breaks a mirror with a whiskey glass Uhg. Cliche and painful beyond believe.
