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

@David: The mentioned in a commentary during the season 1 DVDs that the cornerless paper was an in-joke. During the first season they were strapped for budget, and so found themselves cutting a lot of corners. This then became a crew in-joke of them cutting the corners off of all the paper.

As to who left the note for Adama in the mini-series, I always assumed it was Baltar. I will agree though that it would have been nice for some confirmation, as Baltar does seem a little unlikely. I just guessed him because he's the only non-Cylon who would know.

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

Okay now, I'll admit I haven't read all of the posts here as that would take forever, but from what I HAVE read, I see very few if any people claiming that the finale was "terrible" or a "travesty". What I do see are primarily people who are saying that they liked or even loved the episode, but had a few issues with it. I include myself in this group.

Personally, I'm irritated when people come into a discussion such as this and claim that anyone who didn't love the episode with blind and unquestioning loyalty are just bitching and whining and need to accept the finale as nothing less than perfect. I'm sorry, but that doesn't fly with me. I did like the episode, and I can certainly understand if people thought it was some of the most brilliant television they've ever seen, but it's this kind of reaction that gives a lot of fanbases bad names.

Offering valid criticism of a point a person found frustrating or unclear is not the same as petty whining. Such whining does certainly exist, but I'm seeing fairly little of it here, and far less from people who had problems with the episode than those claiming that it was perfect and everyone should be ashamed for finding any flaw with it. I maintain my opinion that while the Opera House was beautifully executed, it was still a letdown from a story perspective. If you disagree, that's your opinion, and you're just as entitled to it as I am to mine.

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

I've gotta' say, I really enjoyed this episode, with one issue:

The Opera House. So, the entire reason why these prophetic dreams have been happening for like three seasons now is...that Baltar and Caprica carry Hera like 50 ft to the CIC? That's it? I mean, I could have understood it if they saved her almost on the other end of the ship, and had to fight their way through the Cylons to do it. That would have been interesting as both a tension building tool and making it clear that they're guided by a divine power, as they somehow manage to break through a large number of Cylons by themselves, something they normally wouldn't be able to do. But the way it is in the episode just seems like Random Joe Crewman #3 could have walked over, picker her up, and just walked casually to the CIC. Kind of an anti-climatic explanation for one of the show's most important myths.
