Battlestar Galactica series finale

Had to work late due to major system maintenance at work. Finally got home around 11:00pm. Cranked up the volume and just immersed myself into this final two hour episode. Won't throw out any spoilers here, but this was a very intense show. I definitely had some questions that I'll ask later.

I'll admit it, there were times a cried like a baby, but it's easy for my emotions to overwhelm me. It's full of energy, history, emotions, faith..., it's all there and then some. It was a very good ending for this long journey.

Wish bear_left and I had been there to comfort you.... :-). It was fab, wasn't it?

Awww..., thanks! I was sort of glad I was alone. That was a tear jerker for me. Were tissues passed around at the big showing?

I think shirtlifterbear said he'd gotten a wee bit teary at a couple of points. For myself, I was very satisfied, and impressed.

There was a great deal more religious symbolism than I anticipated at first. Maybe it was planned that way or it was more convenient to write it that way? It was still very excellent. I didn't feel like they had to explain everything (like Kara) either.

It was on when I turned on the TV. I've never before watched an episode of this show. Needless to say, I was completely lost. Served me right.

Yeah, the parts when the woman died in the shuttle craft while flying over the landscape and when the guy talks to her after he's buried her on the hilltop were sad.

Oh, yes, you would be completely lost. There is so much history and symbolism throughout this show. Not having the background of the struggle plays a huge part here. You're not the only one that tried to watch it and came away lost.

The woman you referred to was President of the colonies after they abandoned Caprica and has been battling cancer for years off and on. She's a wonderful actor. Remember her from Dances With Wolves?

At least you got to enjoy the special effects in the big battle. :)

About 90% of it, I completely loved; 10%, found problematic (the Opera House Vision was too, well, simple, and didn't like the Starbuck ending). Still, I have to give them kudos for the finale. It was, if nothing else, breathtaking and thought-provoking.

I figured they could not shut all of the doors within 2 hours. I think they did the best they could in the amount of time they had.

The bug bunch of us who got together to watch it all agreed that it was satisfying with just enough left open to be interesting!

PS Were your ears burning? bear_left was talking about you and saying nice things! *grin*

No burning ears. :p I was too wrapped in BSG so anything like that was overwhelmed by what was happening on TV.
