After what seemed like an eternity, as I don’t have Sky 1, I have now purchased a copy of the above.
Months of waiting and re-watching season 3 and what do I get?
10 episodes (ok I knew before I bought it that this was the case)
After a promising start with the Cylon civil war and the mission to find the path to earth the whole thing quickly degenerates into politics and back biting and the usual run of assassinations
I thought the bit with Anders being identified as a Cylon by the Raider was well done, but since then the four have hardly done anything productive. Unless you count murder and backbiting as productive.
It seems to me like they have run out of ideas and ar rehashing the same old stories but in a slightly changed way. No one seems to act in character, Boomer murdering No. 6 being a case in point of this.
With the exception of Apollo and Baltar there doesn’t seem to be a character in the show with any integrity or decency.
My wife described it as “Eastenders in Space” and stopped watching. I persevered, but I’m finding that I agree with her description more and more.
It’s a shame because Seasons 1 and 2 were excellent, Season 3 dipped slightly. but I had high hopes for the final season, which now due to the writers strike is split into 2. There are only 2 episodes left for me to watch, unless things pick up I will not be investing in the final season (whenever that eventually appears).
Hope this doesn’t come across as too negative. I really loved BSG, but it seems to have lost the plot.
