Well, I Guess I'm Done with Battlestar Galactica  
Tonight was pretty much it for me. I've been leaning toward this since the middle of last season and really thinking on it the last two weeks and well, this episode cinched it for me. I found myself fastforwarding instead of watching.

I don't like what's what's happened to Starbuck over the last couple of seasons. I don't like what's happened to Baltar over the last season. These two were my favorites and so much of what I liked about them has been leached out. And then there's the Lee factor. I can not stand Lee. I'm sure that Jaime Bamber is a lovely fella, but he has no charisma, is eh in the looks department (in my opinion) and, my god Lee bores me stiff. He is such weeny, whiny, annoying twit. Then there's Lee/Kara. Maybe if I thought they had chemistry (which I DON'T -- Kara and Gaius? Awesome chemistry. Kara and Helo? Yup. Kara and Anders? Yeah.), the history of their story and the way it was presented just totally squicks me out. And, sigh, tonight just made it perfectly clear that Kara/Lee is the endgame, the big couple, etc., etc. And I don't want to watch it.

But it's not just that because lord knows we've had signs of the above prior to now. It's that I don't like what we found out about Adama last week. Lazy writing. They needed conflict so they pulled something out of their asses to make conflict whether it was consistent with past story or character or not. Laura is too harsh for me now. I understand why, but I don't like it. The Cylon side story bores me senseless and is a complete and utter waste of how awesomely fucked up Gaius used to be. Now he's just pathetically fucked up. Not fun. As mentioned, Starbuck is no longer the kickass girl I fell for. I used to say that she and Jack Bauer could rule the universe together. Now? He'd roll his eyes at her pathetic self. Then there's Lee, fucking Lee. God I hate him for his boring, boring, boring ways. He's such a lame, lame "hero." I want to slap him whenever he shows up onscreen.

So, I don't like many of the characters now, and without enjoyment of the characters, this vast, depressing future of promised annihilation is just not fun, and so I simply don't enjoy watching the show anymore. Ah well. Another one bites the dust.

I don't like the Lee/Kara pairing as well but that's because I'm a Lee/Dualla fan. Granted, they're boring but I like them together. Lee and Kara seem more like brother and sister to me. Last night's episode was entertaining but not as good as the majority of the other episodes. I wasn't thrilled that it focused on Lee and Kara but I was kinda glad that it cleared up the question as to what happened between them.

I'll still keep on watching the show. It's too bad they're losing you though.

I liked Lee/Dualla potentially when they first had scenes together, but I didn't like the direction the story took, moved too fast with the Kara/Lee crap shown in the middle of it, so I don't even enjoy that as much as I thought I would.

Yes, totally, totally Lee/Kara are like brother/sister. I just, ugh. I thought they were going to go that route when the miniseries began, so I kept waiting for some sign that Lee had a secret crush on Kara when she was with his brother, or that Kara felt guilty because she had these secret feelings for him, but we never got a hint of that, so I saw them totally and completely as brother/sister and so anything romantic/sexual with them is just icky for me.

I don't know even know what happened between them. I just stopped ffing and deleted it. I just don't care about them. At all.
