So I watched the final episode (well, the final episode if you don't count the made-for-TV movie The Plan, which is scheduled to air in the US in late 2009) of Battlestar Galactica (Episode 422: Daybreak Part II) on Wednesday.I think the writers attempted to round up some of the loose ends but I still feel that, in this season anyway, they dropped the ball. Why we needed large amounts of non-relevant back story in the final two episodes I will never know. And as for Kara Thrace (AKA Starbuck)...what the frak?
And yes, the myriad ways in which various characters met their end continued... I personally don't think that the decisions made at the end of the episode by certain characters were realistic, but *shrug* I didn't write it.
For those of you who watched the final episode of Battlestar Galactica, what did you think? A fitting end....or not?
Updated to add: So I watched the pilot episode of Battlestar Galactica last night and I realised (again) what an amazing pilot it was. (And yes, now I want to watch the series all over again...well, maybe not Season 4 *grin*) It contains some incredible acting (I just love that scene between Lee and his father near the end), one of my favourite quotes:
It's not enough to just live, you have to have something to live for.And a mystery: who sent Commander Adama the note stating that there were only 12 Cylon models? It wasn't answered anywhere during the four seasons as far as I know...perhaps in The Plan?
