The episode did seem a little rushed as well. And once the humans and Cylons decided to work together to find earth, the bottom kind of dropped out of the tension bucket, if you know what I mean.
I couldn't really enjoy everyone's celebration over finding earth, because I kept wanting to scream: STOP COUNTING YOUR CHICKENS BEFORE THEY HATCH. Granted, I was not expecting what they discovered - although I was having strange Planet of the Apes flashbacks... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell! - but I knew it had to be something bad. Duh. This is BSG.
