Wow... Either she's playing devils advocate, or Sharon Maxwell is seemingly oblivious to the obviously intentional style of cinematography incorporated in Battlestar Galactica. I hear many people who haven't watched much BSG comment on the filming style, a lot of it is negative, but after becoming engrossed by the story, the thought and artistic talent put into in the production is not lost on most. The crew are experienced professionals - look up any of their profiles on imdb; as well, the budget for tripods is not in question.
For her to complain about, and argue that it is spoiling Mary McDonnell's opportunity for an Emmy, indicates that Sharon Maxwell, and those like her, are stuck in a mindset of bland normality, bewildered by those thinking outside the formulaic and contrived techniques of the tired methods of nearly every other show out there.
I would never condone the people who create BSG to compromise their artistic integrity in order to win themselves a prize; particularly if that prize holds more stake than anything, in the minds of people like Sharon Maxwell.
Please, if you want a show done with non-invasive, unquestionable camera motion; something that gives every actor the same banal angles and lighting; something you cannot capably rouse emotion within you, or give you a feeling of presence; watch any 20th century sitcom or soap, and stay away from the future.
That being said; thanks for your criticism, i love it.

I agree with Mark completely. It's possible Sharon is a Cylon.
