Re: Ewww.. SGU let's have some freaking protocol
I thought many of the non arc eps. helped fill out the characters.
When I watch a series, I want things to happen. That "character-driven" drama does nothing for me.
I stopped watching "Air" (which was I believe the second episode?) after the second flashback that had nothing at all to do with the plot of the episode, for example.
Air was the three part pilot for the series, so I'm not quite sure which flashback you're talking about.
