am i the only person that is shocked there is no thread on this?! especially seeing that they're in their final episodes. this has been,imo,one of the best american programs on television. it's got all the qualities of a cinematic release and i adore how in such a sci-fi scenario there is this strong emphasis on humanity and emotion. much in the same way that blade runner was so incredible as a story.
i've been watching this since it aired and truly sad to see something so high quality ending in such a short time.
OMG - Battlestar Galactica is absolutely my favourite TV show. I can't believe there are only a few episodes left, when there is still so much left to explain. Gaius and Six are the best onscreen couple ever in my opinion.
after_eight, I guarantee that I will be crying too.
I KNEW IT!!
[careful, spoiler in white]
Looks like Hera wasn't the first cylon-human baby after all!! I loved last Friday episode so nicely written! [spoiler] I didn't expect the turn of events with Boomer/valerii being so evil and machiavelic! Poor Chief and Athena!
Those last episodes are nerve wrentching but so far no disappointment.
I can't believe that after this Friday's episode, the beginning of the end comes a week later
So far, Blood on the Scales is my favorite episode from this half of the season.
And Aby, you're completely right. This show doesn't get the appreciation it deserves. Regardless, I believe this show will become an icon of the sci-fi genre and will become a major influence for the authors and directors of my generation who are morphing from adolescence to young adulthood at the moment.
I've never seen an episode.. only part of the film.. which was not exactly a masterpiece
So based on my limited experience with BG I have to say that I was rather shocked when I saw who had started the thread... ..and I had to read the posts..
what a dynamic and exciting end if not quite sad as well....so sad laura ends up dying when they get to earth and the revelation that starbuck's presence was really angelic and she just disappears.
but an end to a beautiful program...
apparently edward james directed a new tv film called "the plan" late last year bringing back some of the former cast members,particularly grace park,tricia helfer and michael trucco. and it begins before the 12 colonies are attacked and from the perspective of two cylon agents which i presume will be the six and another character since james callis as gaius isn't mentioned. it's not clear when it will be aired,either in june or in the autumn.
and then of course there's that new series called caprica but i am not too sure about it. it will never replace BG in my eyes.
the only thing i didn't take to very much was the very end 150,000 years later in NYC(or a nyc-like modern society)....i just thought the message of that was already implied by the characters,especially lee,and unneeded.
but i still am not over it to be honest. it's too bad they couldn't have spun it in a new direction like what their lives will be like as inhabitants of the new world or something. could have been interesting. of course,like all stories,everything must have an ending,i suppose. and i think everything that happened from season 3 lead to this. and how about the cathedral dreams coming to fruition? i was hoping there would be an answer to that.
