The blonde, yep.
I mean, "OK", but she was hyped to death even before the series aired.
I guess I'm being hard on her because her part is way over done.

Me too. At first I found her part too self-inconsistent, but a lot of
the show was early on. It got better.
Someone else mentioned the "kill everyone" series in the middle as being
bad. Personally, I thought they were desparately needed and well done.
Given that sci-fi channel in the USA shows crap like "Ghost Hunter", I
suppose we have to consider BSG to be pretty good by comparison.
What does "Ghost Hunter", "Scare Tactics", and the other crap have to do
with science fiction?
We have 500 channel capacity in most parts of the US, so why do we
pollute a subset of channels?
I rather watch constant re-runs of "Flash Gordon" than "Scare Tactics".
At least FG was funny (or it is these days anyway).

I have some episodes, but I'm having a hard time getting the pilot, and
I want to see them in order.
