What was once a great sci-fi show is now nothing more than an achingly slowly developing soap opera set in space. The sci-fi is gone, character development has stagnated, plot development over season 4 has moved at a ridiculously labouring rate. These last 8 or so episodes could have been done in 2 or 3, and would have left room for more of why we're here - sci-fi, excitement, adventure, interesting story, interesting characters, and a plot that develops and keeps us on the edge episode after episode... everything we loved Battlestar for.
Season 1, 2, 3 had it - exciting sci-fi. Season 4 has completely lost the plot. Nothing has happened since the start of Season 4! Extremely disappointing.
