It better be, there has been 4-6 episodes of just build up and build up and we need to know what the fuck, fuck frak, is going on!

Two hours will not be enough for it through.

I think you are right, the last 3 episodes have been fillers.

I so frakking tired of these episodes being called "filler". They are all character / plot pieces. If you want your ship battles and mindless "scifi" go watch some lame ass show like Stargate, Voyager, or Enterprise.

Re: promos for "Daybreak, Part 2" (promo spoilers)

An example of a BSG episode with too much plot: Eye of Jupiter / Rapture.

They dispensed with the "filler" in this 2 parter and left pure plot pretty much. The result was a messy unfocused and shallow action piece, where you could just see the chess pieces being moved from point A to point B with no character motivations behind it.

I am glad to say that since then, we've not had any episodes with that problem. I wouldnt trade this "filler" we've had in season 4 for anything. You will get your answers next week.



------------------

As for the promos, the Space promo was mostly retrospective clips edited together with a couple action shots from next week, not revealing anything at all. That's how it should be let's hope sci-fi follows suit.

I enjoy BSG so I didn't think it was bad, your mileage may vary I guess.

No space battles? Just cylons on Galactica?

Eh...I'm not expecting much. This past episode was a huge disappointment.

Love your avatar, Koinek. "GAIUS BALTAR?!?!"

And what do ya mean, no space battles? There was a pretty clear shot of Galactica in the midst of a flak field.

Re: promos for "Daybreak, Part 2" (promo spoilers)

That shot of Doral in (I think) CIC, yelling "Open Fire," and promptly opening fire...

The figure on the left--that looked like a Colonial uniform, as did the figure facing us, between these two. They looked to be backing Doral up rather than attacking.

Am I seeing things?
