In spite of myself, today I managed to sit through the last few episodes of this last season of Battlestar Galactica. Now I am only half an episode short of the whole season.

 

They really have lost it this season, the writers, that is. Especially in the season final, I had a feeling that the writers wrote the episode while high on LSD, or something else equally potent.

 

A good show has some foreshadowing... but forecasting is not usually a good idea. The season final gave away who the final four cylons were well before you were supposed to figure it out. Starbuck was already a given, but early in the season final, so were the other four. When the climatic scene finally arrived, it was actually anti-climatic.  :\

 

If there is a next season, I sure hope they do a better job than they did for this one. On the lame scale, this season was Lame Level 9.

That was the only verdict the series could have and they did set it up in a way that was believable. I liked the line by Adama, "Not guilty is not the same as innocent." The prosecution honestly didn't prove his guilt. We all know he is because we have seen everything that goes on with him, but they didn't prove it in the courtroom.

It looks like Apollo had gotten through to Baltar to with his speech, but the SOB, after just being 'forgiven' by the judges turns right around and starts his crap again, trying to find a new way to promote himself even if it's at the expense of humanity.

And why no Syx in Baltar's head? It was a typical Syx moment to jump into his head and help puff him up, you almost expected it. Was she to wrapped up with Roslyn, Sharon, and Hera?

I'm not entirely convinced that the ones they seem to indicate are really cylons. The 40 year thing with Tigh would call for an entire rewrite of everything so far. Roslyn still seems like a more likely candidate, she even sensed the power failure just before it happened.

On the other hand, maybe these last five cylons have been humans for so long ... gone through so much that they will now be more human than cylon ... and be the group that brings both races together?

I was thinking Starbuck was a cylon too but now, again, I'm not so sure. It looks like they are taking a page from the original series ... the white light people took her away for awhile then brought her back? Am I kidding?

And one final note here. How to kill a television series ... continued in 2008. Nine months between seasons? How many people will forget it?

The Sopranos once went eighteen months between seasons. We waited twenty years for BSG to return. This is a cult following, we'll be there no matter how long it takes

I had to watch this episode several times to figure out when I was supposed to recognize "All Along the Watchtower". The middle eastern instruments threw me.

I like Kirock's comparison of Starbuck's absence to the original story's "White Light People". One nice thing about this show is that you never know what to expect.

I have heard from the producers that next season will be the last, and that the story will wrap to a conclusion. That's not to be confused with an ending
