Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

@ Jim

I completely agree with you in the failure of the series as a character drama in the last season. The best moments of the series were that of human conflict, where the two sides had their own agendas and there were no clear bad guys.

In the last season everyone agendas went weird: you didn´t know what a character was going to do, as the strings that moved their actions became too clear: the characters and the plot didn´t come together very well, and it fell forced many times.

I can apreciate what they wanted to do with the finale, the just lacked, as someone else said up there, subtley. And some dramatic heavyness, by the way: I can´t believe in the suicidal run that was the final attack we loose no principal characters. I would have gone for a more active participation of Gaius and Caprica, being the sole survivors to take Hera to Earth, or something along that line. It would have given their divine mission a meaning, because right now they just took a girl during some meters to the CIC... Well, I digress.

Let´s try this not to became a flame war, people :)

Re: BSG S4: Daybreak, Part 2 (April Fools Version)

For me, it was somewhat of a letdown. I think it was poorly executed, it had more endings than Return of the King ;)

I´m not against the general idea of Hera mother of the humanity, but the way it is presented, well... you didn´t have to spit it in a newspaper for us to understand :(

And the Opera House=Galactica... well, it didn´t make much sense, as the role of Gaius and Caprica being so important. Or even Roslin and Athena´s role in the vision, it was just a bit cheap explanation. At the same time they want us to buy all the divine part but they feel the need to show us every move in the Opera House vision corresponds to the final scenes... Very poor, IMHO.

Too many leaps of faith for me, sorry.

Anayways, I was expecting something like this, and I´ll continue to like the series as a whole. I´m just sorry that I don´t like the way they chose to drive it in the last season.

Re: BSG S4: Islanded in a Stream of Stars

@ Greg. Thanks for the info.

@ Jason. I understand how he feels, just don´t like tha way the series is presenting it: it just loses its impact when all we see is Adama cryind around all day ;) Some time ago, seeing Adama loose its temper was potent. Now, it´s a bit overused, IMHO

Re: BSG S4: Islanded in a Stream of Stars

Just a question now that so many plot points are off screen for time constraints: are the previous seasons episodes usually extended in the DVDs? Are the UK and US editions equal in terms of chapter running times?

About "Islanded", I felt it doesnot completely succeed in the portrayal of this final moments, and I´m begining to be fed up of seeing Adama crying around.

Re: BSG S4: Deadlock

The worst of the episode for me: as others I´ve never understood the Tigh/Caprica relationship - Does he love her only because she carries his child? Because she is a cylon an can understand him? I don´t get it. Baltar is another character I lost track of long ago - his transfomation into guru took me totally offguard, but now I have no idea what they´re going after with him.

By the way, shouldn´t the antispam filter read Prove you´re not a cylon ;)
