I think I'm subconsciously trying not to have the series end. I still haven't watched "Islanded in a Stream of Stars" or "Daybreak, Part 1". (What?) I have them recorded on the DVR but I can't get myself to watch them yet. Doing so means that I'm one step closer to having the series end for me. It was sort of that way with NYPD Blue. I never watched that series until the last two seasons. (Trying to catch up on old episodes is how I first came across TVTome. I read through episode recaps of all the previous seasons. There weren't any DVD sets for that show at the time. By the way, TVTome later became TV.com.) I followed the last two seasons but as the series wound down, I missed the series finale. (I'm not sure if it was because of work.) I recorded it on the VCR but to this day, I still haven't watched the final episode. (My VCR later broke down. I replaced it with a smaller Panasonic model. A couple years later, I realized that I had never even connected the new VCR to my TV, not even once.)
Anyway, I seem to be following a similar pattern with BSG. (I'm also concerned about an upcoming surgery for a close relative. It should be a minor operation but any time the words "surgery" and "close relative" are in the same sentence, it causes one to worry.) But I definitely plan to watch the last episodes for this series. I'll try to watch both of the previous two episodes tomorrow night. Though I don't normally rewatch BSG episodes that often, I might watch some of the BSG marathon on Friday. I'll watch the two-hour series finale live. It'll be one of those moments that a true BSG fan shouldn't miss. It wouldn't be the same to watch the series finale a month later off the DVR.
