Re: BSG S3: A Day in the Life

(disclaimer: I love the overall series so far)

One problem I have with this kind of episodes is that introduce stuff and characters that weren't relevant before, and won't be relevant after. This is why I consider them "filler", as mentioned by another commenter: because they will be forgotten as soon as the episode ends.

Adama's wife was a throwaway line in the miniseries. Her character isn't interesting in this episode, and she doesn't explain the strains of the father-son relationship of the Adamas. We already know about Zak, and about William's expectations for his sons. That is enough explanation, no need to introduce extraneous characters.

Even worse was the past girlfriend of Lee (season 2?), whose memory almost forced him to commit suicide. Absurd! The character wasn't mentioned before, when we were shown a cheerful Lee, and was summarily forgotten after the episode ended. That's lazy writing.

Same with Lee's hooker girlfriend from another episode, etc. I hate it when they introduce characters you just know won't appear ever again.
