Wow, this blows.
This show has really grown on me, I'd say from around the middle of the first season. The whole "Rush-Bridge" arc this season was really engaging, especially the way in which the show's writers dealt with the character resolution and aftermath once it had been revealed. That is the thing I liked most out of the show - it really feels like the characters earned its use, if that makes any sense. Its not the myopic ideal cast from the dated Star Trek mold, its a bunch of jar-heads and techies trying not to die on this busted-ass dead ship - more or less - and succeeding. If that sits too close to the premise of Battlestar, spare me - I'll admit to never having seen BSG except for a handful of shows.
