Frack this.

I fell behind on BSG for a couple of weeks and just got caught up earlier today.

Things I want less of:

- Characters going crazy. Baltar regularly being molested by a Six only he could see while other people talk to him was great. Having half of the major characters in a constant state of near-mania is just tiresome.
- Religious nonsense. I SO don’t care about the Lords of whatever or the God of the Cylons or who loves who because they’re perfect.
- Killing a major character in each episode. Killing major characters only has impact if it’s RARE.

Things I want more of:

- Thinly veiled Iraq commentary. Isn’t that the whole point of the show?
- President Laura. Her cancer story has become more interesting than all of the other plotlines combined.
- Anything resembling ACTUAL plot progression.

    Damn right! And whatever happened to Vipers flying around shooting things? Or the fleet getting attacked, or otherwise put in jeopardy? I realize that the Cylons have been a bit busy, but psychological melodrama is not the only possible source for dramatic conflict. I always thought BSG worked best in the way it combined the epic conflicts with the personal ones.
