It was a dumb as poo poo plot development but Michael Hogan sold the hell out of it and they made good use of it. (And Saul Tigh was the best drat character on a show full of great characters, before and after the reveal).

Though their biggest Cylon fuckup was teasing a 'dead' 13th Cylon musician and telegraphing hard that he was Starbuck's dad then not making him Starbuck's dad and being all "why would anyone think he was Starbuck's dad".

Hearing the writers that Tricia Helfer got on her podcast stumble through excuses for Season 4 has been pretty entertaining. At least they're up front that they made up all the stuff about the other Cylon models like 2/3 of the way through Season 3.

I really need to listen to her podcast.

Ron Moore, at least, has always been open and upfront that while the Cylons may have had a plan the writers never did.

Any episode where they have a main cast actor is a must, just to hear about the stuff they did while filming. I think it's James Callis who said Edward James Olmos is the godfather to every kid whose parents were working on the show at the time.
