In contrast, BSG's season 4 (which is also the last) has been very spotty to me.
It's like they have an awesome episode one week followed by a lame episode. This week's episode was superb. But last week's episode was one of the all time worst. I mean as bad or worse than the horrendous "Black Market" episode. Is it a coincidence that they both featured Lee acting out of character? What makes it worse is that they should have known better. Also, it's the last season and we want to find out about the final 5. They don't have time to waste on a vanity filler episode.
In the episode ("Sine Qua Non"), they dedicate nearly the entire thing to Lee trying to find a replacement for the President, presumed dead after disappearing on the base ship. You can see what they're doing from a mile away. It was like they thought "We need an episode featuring Romo Lampkin so let's bring the story to a screeching halt to do it." For the record, I hate the character of Romo Lampkin.
I'm very interested in listening to Ron Moore's podcast for this episode to see what he says about it.
