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

Ha Jammer - would have been very cool of you to bow out Thrace-esque as described... but as a joke it's even better!

The Finale- my two cents worth:
What really got me about the series was the intense focus on human relationships. Awesome space battles and atmosphere, but in the end it was the level of writing and direction and especially performance that made almost every episode like going through this wrenching, discombobulating wringer. It worked. I cared about what happened to the characters, and in the finale I wanted to see how those relationships ended up.
With some it worked: Adama/Roslin in particular.
But how about Adama and Tigh? I can't even recall if they had a final scene. All that investment in genius messed-up boozin', fightin' huggin' macho stuff and very little resolution.
As for Kara, over the years we got to know this complex, tragic, real, human character, but that was all a bit of trick, because she's an angel...or something.
Hey...just a personal opinion, it is what is now. Still wouldn't have missed it for the world.

...and need I say Jammer, you rock! Thanks!

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

There are two shots I missed:

!. Front angle close up of Galactica, leading the fleet as she starts to burn up and vaporize in the heat of the sun- the final moments of the main character of the series.

2. All 38,000- odd Colonials, offloaded from their ships on the surface of Earth. We never really got to see all of remaining 'humanity' as one crowd.

Re: BSG S4: Sine Qua Non

Yeah maybe I'm stupid, but can't really figure out why Romo pulled the gun on Lee. I think this episode sold his character short compared to his previous appearances, here he seemed to me like a pithy comment generator with a Tyler Durden cat. (Which might have been an incredibly wry Schrodinger's Cat joke- look it up in your Funk and Wagnells)
Still, as you've said before: a bad ep in the BSG universe is still a pretty damn good one in relation most others.
Plus - huge thanks Jammer for the great reviews. You rock. Don't go a-changin'!
