    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.:devil:

    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.

    ^ They didn't.

    Parts of Galactica blowing up. CIC under fire from Cylons aboard Galactica herself (Simons and Dorals). Parts of CIC being destroyed.

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

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

    Love your avatar, Koinek. :lol: "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.

    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?

    Looks good, but I thought it's interesting that they only showed scenes of Galactica being attacked and boarded. My prediction is that everything we saw takes place in the first 45 minutes with tons of stuff happenning after that not even hinted at in the promo.

    Absolutely. Part Two will be battle with Part Three being all emotional payoff coupled with some plot twists.

    Everybody dies. ;)

    This should be a great, final episode for the series. I have high hopes.

    I was kind of thinking the same thing. I think we may get the big battle in the first hour, with the second hour answering all (or many) of the mythology questions the series has created.

    It looks like they may self destruct the Galactica, or was that the flight stick of a raptor?
