Hail and Farewell

Posted By on Sat, Mar 21, 2009 at 10:59 AM

So that's it for Battlestar Galactica. The space porn was beautiful to watch, but I'm left unsatisfied. Not in a "I want more BSG" way, but in a "I don't feel like they answered enough of the questions they raised" kind of way. Angels? Really? WTF?

Oh, well. The first two seasons were among the finest bits of television I've ever seen, and the rest kept me enthralled, even when it disappointed.

I'd say that Jacob over at Television Without Pity summed up my feelings pretty well. Money quote:

So if this poor showing is the end of the marathon, I'm grateful they paced themselves as well as they did, for as long as they were able. I don't think we'll see a story this wonderful again in our lifetimes, and we are privileged to have taken part. And that's really what matters.
