The first one is that Dr. Robert flails in Dee's direction and screams about how he didn't harm her, and Helo totally says, "Right, she's one of the good ones."
Let that sink in for a second.
The second one is how everything goes into slow-motion and Helo and Mrs. King, who's randomly there all of a sudden, stare at each other in slow-motion for a million years, because she is avenged.
I hope a third thing doesn't happen!
Cut immediately to a third horrible thing happening: Helo comes into Adama's office and exposits that he's been invited there by Adama, which is self-evident but still engenders the line, "Sir, you wanted to see me?" Adama tells him to sit down, and then says the following words in the following order without even giving you a second to breathe.
"There's hate, and there's allowing hate. Two sides of the same coin, really. We're guilty of both. Somewhere, we got lost. You being the lone voice in the wilderness, we were bound to stay that way for a while. This is my ship. And I owe you an apology."
What part of any of this is okay? Look, I'm not saying you have to hate the episode, or that I think you're stupid if you loved it or even kind of liked it. Not that my opinion should really have anything to do with yours anyway, since you're a grownup. I like plenty of things that are poorly written, it's not a comment on me as a person. Hex is one of my favorite shows and it regularly makes this episode look like it was written by geniuses. But what offends me here is that first of all, I don't watch science fiction shows for this reason: clumsy moral dilemmas that get solved out of nowhere, black-and-white emotional responses, complete disregard for character continuity, sexless two-dimensional cardboard characters nobody could ever actually care about, misogyny both subtle and overt. This show is an exception to my personal rules, because it brings me an outrageous amount of joy almost every week. So when I say that this is a serious drop of the ball, I'm not setting it alongside other crappy sci-fi shows, I'm comparing it first of all to itself, because at the very least sitting down to watch an episode of Battlestar Galactica should fulfill the promise that you'll be seeing an episode of that show. And this was not one. It was an episode of a horrible show that I never would watch and never want to see again. Secondly, it offends me as a writer, because it's shittily written. I don't know which actually bothers me more. I do know that this piece of crap made me like "Black Market" a lot more, and for that reason alone I despise it.
