it will not close out as satisfyingly as Six Feet Under
or even, The Wire.

I don't think it will get the WTF? reaction like the Soprano's finale.


I did a quick skim of an article in the L A Times today, it implied we may not get a definitive answer about StarbucK.

Everything I've read seems to say that most fans will be satisfied.

We'll see if that really happens or not.

i have no consistent access to Cable TV, but i finally managed to see most of S. 4.0 and the second Eps of 4.5 .

So i finally watched the 4.5 Recaps on the official BSG page... OOO cool stuff. Bit by bit I'll watch the full 4.5 eps on site.

Or if that dosen't work out, a friend will eventually when they get to the library will convert them to VHS for me. My portable DVD player is not well & must get it eventually to repairs -if not too much $$ to spend.

I hope the two-hour last episode is satisfying, because I'm forced to admit that most of the 4.5 season has not. It's been quite slow-moving, little to nothing has been revealed, and we've spent a lot of time rehashing much of the same that happened beforehand. The coup episodes were interesting, but unnecessary; watching Baltar pontificate ad infinitum since New Caprica seems like a waste of his character's potential; and we didn't need to spend so many episodes watching Adama have tantrums. And just when we get an interesting cliff-hanger at the previous episode's conclusion, we're rewarded in the next with more of the same lack of resolution.

Part 1 of this last episode seemed to suffer from many of the same problems. There was lots of unnecessary buildup that was just a continuation of what was rehashed in previous episodes, and we had yet even more flashbacks that seemed to reveal nothing of importance, albeit were still interesting (particularly Roslin's moment).

Call me a bit cynical, I guess, but I find it hard to believe that, with all the mythology and loose ends in BSG, they will all be favourably resolved. I find myself thinking that they will either be resolved hastily or not at all, both scenarios which will be disappointing. Nonetheless, I'm willing to watch the last two-hour episode with more of an open mind, and I will be happy to admit it after next week if my "cynicism" was misplaced.

Regardless, BSG has been a watershed moment in the evolution of film and TV sci-fi, and I will be interested to see its larger impact over future Hollywood projects.

I have to agree that the last few episodes have prodded along without any new information revealed, and that while I hope that the finale takes care of that, I do worry that they will throw everything together a bit haphazardly at the end.

The coup diversion was fantastic though, and I thought it was done well, playing on how people were feeling at the time, after they had finally reached Earth, only to discover it was in ruins. I loved how it set everyone off in different directions; some great character studies there.

the article in L A Times said they do a good job with this 2 hour finale

which really is possible, when you consider that the best movie you ever saw, is probably about 2 hours long.

so lets hope the writing is top -notch one last time.

2 hours minus commercials...probably less than 90 minutes.

2 hours, 11 minutes to be exact. Keep that in mind if recording.

Au revior BSG. Best frakkin show of all time. I thought the finale was excellent. I think all the answers you could look for are in our mythology / history. Loved it. I miss it already.

I'm psyched for the Cylon version coming this fall. NICE!

Yes. I miss it too. I still wish some aspects of the mythology had been elaborated on more, particularly with the history of "Cylon Earth" and the Final Five's past history with each other, plus more related to "God" and related mythology, but what they ultimately did in the last two hour episode was satisfying and feels complete, leaving us wanting more.

I guess a show creator can ask for nothing more than that.

There is the Cylon point of view special coming in the fall that might answer some of those.

Did Tyrol go to Scotland or Scandinavia or something? He said north, cold, highlands, I believe.

I thought the finale was underwhelming.

a bit of a let down.
