  • Interesting twist of the plot but at times seems shallow and uncharacteristic of the overall tone of the show.

    I really expected a lot more from the series finale especially after watching the one hour special a couple of days ago. It is a great ending of one of the best Sci-Fi shows ever made but it does seems like they ran out of steam at the end. You would think that Galactica does not have the ability to jump after it gets stuck in the Cylon base but then all of a sudden it does make a jump. At that point you start wondering why didn't they do that as soon as Hera was on board. The final five had previously said that they will never give the Cylons the secret of resurrection yet they agree to do that as if it was no big deal. Then everyone decides to forget about all the technology that they are so used to and start living as prehistoric men used to live. Well I'm sorry but given the direction of the character development this last one is a total patchwork. The humans have never completely agreed on any single thing and considering that they have finally found what seems to be a promise of a new life and the Cylons are more or less gone ( leaders dead ) there is no incentive and no real believable justification for the actions. Honestly, if the show had ended with the ships jumping close to Earth it would have been a perfect ending and the small indiscrepancies would have never bother me or anyone else. At least that way you know that the war is over that there is a hope for a new beginning and you get to make up your own mind as to what might happen afterwards. Instead you are force fed this crap about human evolution, angels watching over us, god, etc. Seriously what gave out at the end? You had to fill up some air time or what?
