The signs of the show's increasingly terrifying sense of humor were only there in flashes in the mini, I thought: the miniseries had moments of close-to-goofy joking, some of which didn't work (as Ronald D. Moore admitted about the "technobabble" he wrote for one scene). One sign of it I noticed in the mini were some of Katee Sackhoff/Starbuck's facial reactions while flying. The humor isn't as much of a focus in "33," focusing instead on this increasingly delerious crew having to fight and/or flee for days without the chance of sleep. Probably a good idea this time, to let the show focus on the grimness of the survivor's situation. Still, I'm looking forward to both laughing and going "Oh my God" later in the run.
(By the way, how great for the cast that for their first week of filming, they could report for work unshaven?)
Knowing that the show runners have cheerfully admitted to making up a lot of the backstory on the run, like deciding at the last minute on the miniseries that Boomer would be one of the Cylons, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing how that all hangs together. I may have more to say as I view more: I won't review BSG episode by episode, but there'll be thoughts.
