It was filmed in a documentary style, so the idea was that the camera operator had to scramble to find the frame and track the action because he didn't know what would happen next. I think it worked fairly well, particularly in the effects shots. Well that's simply wrong. Olmos and Mcdonell gave shockingly raw performances that ran the entire gamut of human emotion. I can only assume that you didn't watch the show if that's your opinion on their performances. Not so much, no. Off the top of my head, I'd point to the confession scene between Starbuck and Adama in 'You Can't Go Home Again' as a prime example of just how much EJO can do with his eyes. Scot Glen was good in 'Red October,' but I wouldn't put him in the same league as EJO. The original show featured the same Viper with the same afterburner trail over and over and over again. At least nuBSG gave lip service to the concept of zero-g flight. As for Starbuck writing her name on the Raider, how else should she try to identify herself?
