there must be some way out of here...

In my exciting tour of Arizona I completely forgot that the Battlestar Galactica finale happened on Sunday, even though I was in the home of two Big Geeks that weekend. However, they haven't seen the remainder of season 3 and were waiting to see the last episodes of the season.

Spoilers after the break for those of you who haven't seen it yet, but I must say it was the most bizarre yet suspenseful finale EVER! You. Will. Die. And you will die knowing you'll have to wait until 20-frikkin'-08 for the answers to whatever the hell is going on with the fleet.

I am sad to report that Lee Adama has lost his status as Imminently Stalkable to Sam Anders, played by the hunky Michael Trucco. His hair, that cute broken nose, and those guns had me at his first Pyramid match.

So Baltar was hilarious in his sarcasm the whole episode - he had me in stiches. Lee Adama's monologue during Baltaar's trial was brilliant. The whole music haunting the four was creepy and their realization/denial was interesting. Clearly Anders is in total denial, Tyrol is still thinking about the situation, Tory Foster is being a bit too quiet, and I admire Tigh's reaction to the situation that they might be Cylons. "Whatever else I am, I'm an officer in the Colonial Fleet and if I die today, that's the man I'll be." Translation: STFU and get back to work! Maybe this will actually get him off the wagon for once.

And I KNEW they wouldn't kill off Starbuck. But is she one of the Five Cylons? I'm guessing she is, since she did so well at handling the captured Cylon cruiser.

So like the dreams Roslyn was sharing with Six and Athena - there were six glowy banners, five figures on the opera house balcony, and only four supposed Cylons on Battlestar Galactica. Who is the fifth or sixth Cylon? I only hope they bring back Xena. Love her.

I've been so disappointed all season and this finale, for me, was so very bad.
Hearing "All Along the Watchtower" sucked. Lee's speech on the stand where he repeated every line twice was laughable. The only character that's the least bit fun for me anymore is Six (and her brain Baltar).
The writing is devolving into sloppy Dawson's Creek territory with lines like, "You of all people . . ."
Don't get me wrong though, its still the second best show on TV (although last season, it was the best show on TV).
Oh, and the "five other cylons" are clearly not the people in the ship, right? Or else Tyrol and Callie's baby would be a half-breed and everyone would be dreaming about him, right?
I hope they tighten the show a lot for next season, and I hope they have more sfx and cylon/fleet dogfights.

You know that in Galactica, what seems obvious is not the case?

Ronald Moore has stated that what you think is obvious is not the case. The Four are connected, but not because they are what you think they are. Looking back I really do not think they are the "final five" (to many details to explain) I think they are part of the beacon to lead them to earth.

I couldn't decide if the last episode was brilliant, or had jumped the shark. Apollo's courtroom speech was great, IMHO, he summed up everyone's feelings about Baltar. Baltar's acting was great, especially after the trial when he was trying to make himself invisible while walking through the hallway. I could practically smell the fear coming off of him through the tv screen.

There's a lot I don't understand about human behaviour on that show. If they are in a fight for survival against an artificial/mechanical/alien race, wouldn't they seek to understand as much as they could about what they were fighting against? From the beginning they look down on the Cylons as "toasters", but toasters don't shoot at you.

Perhaps they aren't Cylons. Perhaps they were brainwashed on New Caprica. Perhaps it's just a Cylon mind-frack.

Apparently the long wait for the Battlestar series to return is going to be filled at some point with a miniseries about the Battlestar Pegasus. There's going to be a whole new set of eye candy to behold!

ZOMFG! When are we going to encounter a cylon baseship full of naked Anders?

Almost every gay blog I visit has something to say about Battlestar Galactica. And now you. I must watch the reruns and see what the fuss is about.
