  1. Currently I’m watching very little tv. BONES is one; in that show I enjoy all the regulars and most of the recurring characters and am quite happy with the screen time each gets.
    Still watching B Galactica… but it’s “Maybe something cool* will happen,” and “What happened to the blond cylon hottie?” and “Maybe they can recover from jumping that shark.”
    * At this point that’s “Maybe there will be one of those neat space battles.”

  2. Thank you, Randy, for proving the point that we’re not (remotely) watching the same shows, even when we technically are.

  3. They lost me with “He’s a cylon, she’s a cylon, wouldn’t you like to be a cylon too.”

  4. I think you’re fundamentally misusing the phase “jumping the shark.”
    Quote: “a colloquialism used by U.S. TV critics and fans to denote the point at which the characters or plot of a TV series veer into a ridiculous, out-of-character storyline.”
    From the very, very beginning of the show, we have been told a few things:
    – There are 12 colony worlds.
    – There are a set number of cylon models (later revealed to also number 12 – coincidence? no.)
    – Several cylon models are unaware they are cylons.
    – The unknown five are unknown to everyone.
    This is all written — “it has all happened before.”
    The show is delivering exactly what it has always said it would, from the beginning. No five-year cock tease — they’re doing it.
    Bravo, I say.
