After seeing the episode a second time, I would bump my initial "above average" vote to "excellent." There were a lot of little details that I missed the first time that added a lot to the story.
I've come to the conclusion that someone who says "nothing happened" in this episode, even in the first 40 minutes, must have ADD. Characters where being positioned for the story climax - it's just that the writers had something Jane Epenson lacks - subtlety.
If anyone had told me when the miniseries aired that one of my favorite all-time scenes on Battlestar Galactica would be behind a piano, I would have lost a lot of money.
