Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

This is true. I will note, however, that I was much less disappointed with Lost. Still significantly, no doubt, but I felt Lost simply didn't answer many things, which I think I prefer to BSG...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Hehe. The timing of you defending both, er, inventive endings within a few days of one another, and me grousing about them, was not lost on me. :D

I'm not the first person to make this joke, but...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Ah yes. Okay, so how about this 2.0 version of the sentence?

In order for the series finale to make sense, you have to believe that God dumped a dead body on New Caprica and then sent its...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Hey hey. :) This thread died awhile back, but it's been through the Resurrection Ship, so it's alive again.

Anyway, Mike (Sedai) made some BSG reference on Facebook, I made a wise crack about the...

To be honest, I don't even know. He talked about those sorts of things all over in a number of digressions, so I'm not sure which part you're referring to. If it's in the last hour or so, I probably...

Loved that. The dude seriously seems to hate those cats.

Still haven't listened to the last hour. Hopefully this week.

Yeah, he goes along with the episode itself; tricky to keep them lined up, as you have to hear the dialogue in the background of the podcast, but I can usually get it within a few seconds.

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Yeah, I think they did make some choices that could certainly irk some. But regardless, most of the problems I and some scattered others have aren't really related to the vagueness of the deity.

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

I dig.

After the finale, Aus asked me how I thought other people were going to react. I said I thought it'd be mixed, but that a surprising number of people would like it, if only because they...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Aus kinda covered this, so forgive me if I repeat anything she's said, but notice the phrasing here: her viper and body (emphasis added) "had to be moved to earth so as to transmit the signal that...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Sure thing. :) Likewise and all that.

Right, I did follow it that far. Though I'd say that we ought to be able to get a pretty firm grasp of things from the show alone, and not need ancillary...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

The vague "Hand of God" is one thing. God randomly selecting people to return to life, and transporting their bodies onto distant planets just to mess with them, is another thing entirely. I don't...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Wow. Well, as well as well the theory fit, it wasn't correct. I'm pretty stunned. And not terribly satisfied.

Half the episode, it's true, was filled with genuinely satisfying or poignant...

Aye. Can't take credit for it, sadly, though I was all too happy to confirm the various ways it fit for him:

He tossed it out there and I was like "well, that makes sense of this and this, and...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Yeah, I can't quite make sense of all that, but it's conceivable that Kara's done some kind of time traveling before, or something. Then again, her Viper was described as looking as if it "had just...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

Interesting. For that to happen...

...they'd have to jump forward in time quite a bit in the finale. Not that this is unheard of, as they obviously did it for New Caprica. Or, I suppose they...

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

I don't know if it explains that, but then again, I don't think any one theory has to pull everything together. We're going to need several revelations/twists to cover everything, I think.

Re: Battlestar Galactica: Final Season (SPOILERS)

They'll definitely need to explain it either way, I think, and you're right, the theory being proposed here doesn't explain that. Then again, until Moore's comments, we didn't think we needed to...
