  • Space battles have nothing to do with it.

    These are tired storylines. I never watched the show for "thrill-seeking action", and just because you don't like the heavy drama (even though it's not nearly as heavy as it thinks it is) doesn't mean you're only about the action. Clearly, we've made it this far. But I feel that BSG has strayed away from what has made it so great. It builds. It surprises. It does none of that any more. It reduces its characters into these woefully boring shadows of their former selves, and by dragging out storylines to the nth degree (how long has the Starbuck mystery gone on now for??), the suspense dies. This isn't who killed Laura Palmer.

    I'm sticking with it to the end as I've been one of its most loyal fans. I adore the show. But BSG tastes like a burger that has been on the grill for about two hours two long. The last three eps were overcooked. I am hoping the next couple episodes can salvage the flavor by throwing some A-1 sauce to make it somewhat digestable.
