A disappointing season
on May 29, 2015
This season is a bit of a let-down. The pace suffers from far too much contemplation of navels and irrelevant flash-backs, the sci-fi gets sidelined by religious mumbo-jumbo and main characters either go off the rails or behave totally out of character. A few inconsistencies start to creep in too, suggesting that the writers have both lost interest in maintaining continuity and that they are making the story up as they go along rather than having the whole plot story-boarded from day one.
As this is the first half of the last season, it should be working towards a gripping conclusion and a mass tidying-up of loose ends. Unfortunately, it seems to have lost the drive and vision of the earlier seasons.
