    Oh dont go down that road. I got a physics lesson when I brought it up a few episodes ago.

    So......thats it then?

    My two biggest issues are with Kara and the ending. Was Kara a figment of Lee's imagination? I find that just crazy.

    And the Baltar-Six couple at the end.....they knew the story. They commented on the "eve" skeleton had a cylon mother and human father. Then when they got around to talking about god....Baltar says "It doesnt like to be called that". It? So is god a cylon and Baltar and Six were supposed to be archangels of some kind?

    My head hurts.

    When the flock of raptors jumped from inside the the museum side drive bay, they showed that entire side of the ship blowing out /venting ... so they kept continuity .. They also hinted at it earlier when they shifted all the raptors to the museum side.

    YEAH a space battle!!! :)

    the rest - meh, whatever.

    earth 2 - the sequel.

    earth 2 - human electric boogaloo

    earth 2 - attack of the clone...errr. cyclons...



    oh oh oh and before i forget, did anyone other than me expect to see Baltar pull a Neo and do his flying thing at the end? Thank the Gods I wasn't writing on that show or I'd have finished with the end scene from The Matrix and some Rage Against the Machine :)

    The ending seemed a little predictable to me I had it figured the minute I saw the new planet they were orbiting. I figured it was earth however it was to easy an ending seems like the writers got lazy. I also think they left too many loose ends

    It wasn't a skeleton.

    Then again, who knows if the writers have any clue what Mitochondrial Eve is?

    I can't believe it was that satisfying! Someone said it earlierthat the show excels with the space battles; and to be sure there was a good bit of that.

    Really I'm just shocked that they didn't completely frak it up.

    Well it was an ending but I guess I was expecting more after 5 years. However it wasn't the worst ending in tv series history. I have no hope for the Lost series finale though.:D

    I liked it.
    They never showed the continents or the constellations of the scorched earth so I assumed they'd end up on the planet we call Earth, I wouldn't have guessed that it was that long ago though.

    Did anyone else catch that the guy holding the magazine with the pic of the fossilized skeleton at the end was Ronald D Moore, the exec. producer/writer?

    I liked it. I was prepared for something really crazy at the end, like the whole planet was a projection of Hera's. :)

    I don't get why Bill didn't stay with Lee.

    I really thought Helo was dead so that was surprise.

    Bad, just bad. I'm not even willing to discuss all the bad stuff. I'm done, and truly OK with the series being over.

    I liked the original series music though.

    It was clearly stated that the raptor crew wanted their nukes hot as they went in.

    Yep, that's what I took away. I assumed Kara was something similar but am getting caught up in her interaction with real items.

    I'm undecided on the 150,000 years later ending. It was necessary to explain HeadSix/HeadBaltar and indicate things might be different this time around. It would have been more poignant if it ended with Adama at Roslyn's grave.

    I'm curious if the Final Five^h^h^h^h Three lived out their lives Highlander-style.

    I don't know yet...

    It's something I'll have to chew on for a while. But it could have been worse I think.

    Amen, brother. When I think back to the amazing mini-series that kicked this off to where we are now, I can only shake my head.

    Brilliant just to balance the crappers.
    It was obvious that Kara was an angel/ghost who came back to fulfill her unfinished business to come back and lead them to their destiny. Plenty of movies have done that.

    The ending kind of reminded me of Lord of the Rings. In that it was many endings.

    Overall better than I expected it would be. but it was obvious that the writers really did not care too much about the plot. It was interesting to see how they shoehorned all the explanations that they did such as the temple being CIC.

    Still too many question unanswered:

    What was with the Six/Baltar being there 150,000 years later? For that matter why were they in the whole series to begin with? I was really hoping to get an explanation on them.

    So who or what was Starbuck? She obviously was not the harbinger of the end of humanity like the hybrid said.

    <SIGH> It could have been so much better.

    Do cylons age? The only old one I'm aware of was Cavel (and why did he blow his brains out?) and he resurrected old. If they don't, could any of the cylons from 150,000 years ago still be walking among us?

    And since it was a long, long time ago, the centurions could have gone to a galaxy far, far away and become the droids in Star wars.

    Six/Baltar in New York were the angels AKA Head six/head Baltar and as a result live forever.
    The interesting part about them was they could be seen interchangably versus everybody else that saw angels could only see their own so to speak.
