I've always argued Jamie has a family to support and any network TV appearance is good for his career, but I was rethinking all that by the midway point. However! As we neared the end of the episode and it was revealed he wasn't just the killer, but the totally unrepentant killer, and Jamie was AWESOME in his unrepentant glory, I completely understood why this was a VERY GOOD ROLE for him to take on. Yeah, the show is...not good, but Jamie really got to show us something different and I APPROVE OF THIS. He even gave us a different American accent. I was expecting to hear Lee Adama. Overall, I was very pleased with his scenes and will enjoy watching them again. :)
Putting Jamie's performance aside for a second, I do wish the murder was less WTF?! First, we're expected to believe the girl slept through her parents packing up the house during the storm AND that they didn't notice her sleeping with the door open. Then, her boyfriend freezes and doesn't do anything to try and prevent her murder.
