Wait, wait, hold up. You think AoS has gotten worse since Cap 2?!
Indeed, though I'm still optimistic about it.
Since Cap 2 it's gone from 'Jeez, why am I sitting through more of this crap' to 'OK, I'll give it to the end of the season'.

Imho anyway...
Yeah, most seem to see it that way. I saw a solid adventure series, with good characters and relationships that were developing nicely, and a blue-skies attitude that was a refreshing change from the dark 80s angst that infests most everything, and suddenly there was a 90-second clip of a generic jet plane dogfight and explosions, and the audience was cheering and the characters were all acting out of character for the sake of forced conflict, and instead of it being about people and stories it was about everything you knew last week is a lie, and everything you found out this week will turn out to be a lie next week, and blah blah blah. But the writing did seem to be recovering a bit last week. I just keep chanting "Babylon 5" and hoping for the best.
