    I liked it well enough, sure. There was way too much "preaching" going on, though.

    The last scene with imaginary/angelic Caprica and Baltar almost ruined the whole thing for me, but the final sequence where they actually used the good version of "All Along The Watchtower" saved it.

    Is this a spoiler thread or what?

    You think so? I laughed at the whole watchtower Asimo music video. It was pretty damn cool though I'll say that much. What really did it for me was watching Galactica get beat on by the colony.[/spoiler:f71603e9d8]

    this is stupid, we should just go ahead and make this a spoiler full thread, noobs beware. If we're going to talk about the finale, we have to spoil it, plain and simple.


    I was pretty ok with it up until the Baltar/Caprica bit, and then I felt like it sucked. Then the final sequence made me feel ok again. Really the only thing that I felt about the fight scene was that some of the CG was totally fucked. I mean, it was ok and everything.

    I liked them discovering "Earth", that was good and everything, but Roslin's death was...Ehhh..I would've preferred if Bill was a little less emotional. I'dve liked it if he just took it in stride and kept talking as though she were there. I think it'd just be more in character for him.

    The creators of the show changed him from a stonewall warrior into a pussy, everyone saw that coming.

    The Cylon CG was not like it was in the previous seasons. The firefight scene in the halls of the Galactica between the Marines and the Cylons was still cool.

    I like how the whole message of the show is to be nice to robots. Don't worry about Darfur or the Middle East or any other human drama, we need to start practising saying please and thank you to the coming robot citizens.

    I cannot possibly perceive how the creators of this show could intertwine the conflict in Darfur or the Middle East into a sci-fi epic like BsG.

    They did do a couple episodes regarding kooky religions that don't accept medicine and blood transfusions though.

    The end, it supposed to be earth, pretty much our exact earth. And hey Head-six is optimistic that cycle will be broken. But it's not broken, through out human history it has always been broken. Genocide and hate have always been around and are still part of our present. But no lets not worry about that, there are now dancing robots.

    I know what the fuck was the point of the dancing Robots Ron? Seriously, you did great on DS9's ending but not the last minute or so of BSG!

    Well it was better than I expected, but I dislike the "LOLZ ABANDON TECHNOLGY" solution. I understand that it is necessary for their point (it might happen again), but personally I just think its stupid. IMO advanced technolgy allows a more peaceful life.

    Oh and yeah, I hate timetravelshit (except if it is for fun/in a star trek episode which makes fun of it self)

    I felt similar yet they had to abandon technology for the timeline we know and live in to still exist! *cough* ...I bet Atlantis was created by the cylons.

    I didn't liked the whole GOD thing.
    That's totally destroyed the duality of the show I liked so much : the monotheist Cylons, the polytheist Humans.
    I totally hated the "angels thing", OMG I see ANGls! IVIRITHING is clear now" that allows you to explain everything you want.
    Yeah, she is dead, but she is an angel. Wait remember me, why did she had to die anyway? Oh, coz GOD, has a plan... Why doesn't he just send a memo, for a change?
    The whole scene with Baltar, 6 and Hera, that we are waiting for since season 2, with I don't know how many allusion and repetition, so it was just for that? Totaly unsignificant.
    "OMG OMG! Its episode 20 of the last season! Lets love each others guys! Don't you see? GOD has a plan!"
    The same with the last five, in the end, they really arent that important. Why bother looking for them, really...

    The "abandon the technology" thing was retarded. "we have to break the circle!" Damn, it was FORGETTING about the circle that allowed it to repeat in in the first place. What happened to the complexity of human society?
    "Oh they want to have a clean start"
    Like that helped them. Hera died young! Killed by a lion I hope. Good for her.

    Oh, and the whole flashbacks coming out of nowhere, pffff...
    And the lonnng emo scene....
    And of course the angels in Timesquare...
    All that makes me regret the cylons loosed the war...

    Well. Lets just say I didn't liked it. But i enjoy the rest of the show pretty much, so I am ok with it.

    I didn't watch the show but saw the ending. This was like the way I read books, read the last few pages and then read the rest of it.

    Anyway, I am not sure if I can stomach the show. I heard lots of stuff about it, but frankly, the part I liked was when the one cylon figures that another cylon killed his wife and he breaks her neck, totally fucking the deal made between the humans and Dean Stockwell.

    The rest of the conclusion- eh... why the hype?

    They just pulled of a somehow "reasonable" ending.
    I mean I could have lived with: "We give u resurrection and u be nice 2 us." So it was even better, when the twist occurred with: "U killed ma biatch, who I didnt even like...Now u die" - "ITS A TRAP! Shoot! 3Cylons vs ALL"

    And how did anybody NOT see the last 2min comming, after the BSG flew towards Earth and u could see the shape of AFRICA?!
    (You think they might let you off without some messed up appeal to morality. :mrgreen: )[/spoiler:92af183e16]

    All in all, considering the strange courses of action that the series was going to take, the ending was better than anybody could have anticipated.

    10/10 (because awesome Adama survived till the end)
