And, as you said, the moment helped to further develop Ty, who still seems to be lacking in character development.
Not exaggerating, I leaned forward with a big shit-eating grin on my face during that scene. Not just because Hooten needed to have it spelled out for him (preferably by someone other than Buck, who he clearly finds all too easy to write off as a busybody)... but because Jamie finally had a really meaty bit of script to chew on, and he was SO fucking good in that moment! Look, I get it, it is an ensemble... there were plenty of episodes in BSG where Lee didn't have much to do, either. But this early on, I do agree that they could stand to dig a lot deeper with Ty. As you noted before (which I agree with), we should have gotten to know him a little better before the Quinn calamity hit. I so wish he had been the primary focus of the pilot, and that we had fewer plot strands to juggle every week. *sigh*
But I DID LIKE THIS EPISODE. Much much better than last week. :)
