Battlestar Galactica, Sucker of Monkey Butt

Someone is going to read this and get mad, since I am going to spoil the plot of last week's Battlestar Galactica.

Kara Thrace dies and I don't care.

I mean really don't care. The Pilot, the first, and the second season of BSG were awesome, but the third season?

Might as well end it now.

My theory is that the authors don't have a plot. Up until the third season the show was followed the original series plot. The third season had to find its own way, and just as aimless as Galactica's flight path is, the plot doesn't go anywhere. I've lost having an interest in the characters and frankly after this episode I have that bad taste in my mouth that I got watching the third star wars movie.

Its like eating steamed tofu. Its mushy, and it lacks taste.

They could have done the "Galactica meets the gambling planet" story, or the Galactica does the wild wild west bit, but no, they couldn't even pull that off. They couldn't even step back and use the worst episodes of the original series.

Battlestar Galactica 1980 was better, and it was truly awful.

Let it be over.

What is the best thing they could do?

Start season four where season two left off, admit the mistake and hire good writers.

The producers are unlikely to do this, so we can just hope that the series gets cancelled.
