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

Well, that was pretty epic, even if I kept thinking of Arthur Dent and the hairdressers. They nailed the tone, and the very last scene was perfect. I didn't mind either that they didn't answer questions like 'What is Kara/head Six/head Baltar?' in any exact, rational way...I felt like they did answer them narratively, and the supernatural thread has been pretty consistent.

I did have one major problem though. Baltar's journey has been the most interesting story of the series...head Six made him become Caprica's delegate, vice-president, president, then after he was disgraced made him leader of his own religion until it encompassed a sizeable portion of humanity, and then made him acquire weapons...and then his ultimate fate is completely unconnected with any of this? I suppose maybe the idea is that his followers will spread the love of God throughout humanity and break the cycle, but it it's not really clear.

Also the fulfillment opera house thing didn't really explain the sense we got that Baltar and Six were stealing Hera. I might have had Helo and Sharon gunned down by Centurions and Hera adopted by Six and Baltar. And yeah, other people have brought up the harbinger of death thing.

I still reckon they did a better job of tying up loose ends than certain series on TV ever will though (cough Lost, Heroes). I suppose I might give it 3 stars..
