Is this some kind of swing back against BSG that I've missed? Or was always hated on by a big bunch of genre folk?
I only watched it last year, felt like I was going to die if I didn't see the next and the next and the next episode. It wasn't a show you love and embrace and grow old with like Babylon 5 or your best Trek series, it was more like some kind of intense drug high you loved every minute of. That's cliched but it's how I felt at the time.
