Is anybody else watching the current season? If what really happened was for good, that was ballsy for the show; however, I was disappointed how it was set up.

I just finished season 3 on Cinemax. What are you referring to? Is this about the season ender?

Yup, the third season. I think I was referring to the penultimate episode then. The finale made up for it. Congrats to the show for finally having been nommed for a major Emmy (both writing & directing).

Halfway through my Season 2.5 DVDs but stopped before the infamous one-two punch of Black Market and Scar, the two allegedly worst episodes of this season and the point where a lot of people thought the show was jumping the shark. Will watch those when I have time I can really waste and probably skip on to the rest of the season. Will dip into my Firefly box set first in the meantime.

Anybody of the torrent people here caught the premiere of the final 10 episodes of this show?  Just want to read some feedback here.  Not exactly spoilers.  Haven't seen it myself.  Did it suck or did it rock? ???

Wow, nobody's talking about the latest episodes of BSG?!? I've only watched up to episode 14 of season 4 and that FRAKKIN' rocked!

Best show on TV IMO, right-up there with LOST. Too bad we only have 19 days 'till the end of BSG.

Hohoho... I'm sure the BSG finale pissed off a lot of people, but seriously, I thought it was brilliant. Blame it on my Catholic schoolboy upbringing.

What a frakkin' masterpiece.

I never thought that a show I just happened to check-out one day 'cause I saw an awards show it was nominated in a few months ago would turn-out to be the best 4 year movie I'd ever witnessed. And now, everything else just seems so second-rate compared to this overwhelmingly unnoticed (by the general viewers) yet greatly appreciated (by just about everyone who's seen it) study of the human condition -- warts and all -- entitled Battlestar Galactica.

Thanks for the wonderful ride, Galactica.

Maybe one day, we'll get to experience this again. After all, "All this has happened before, and all this will happen again."

I wish, but it seems doubtful. Wala pa nga yung 4.0. I've bought Seasons 1-3 on R1, but the price difference is huge, so I'm willing to wait.

Just finished Season 3, and just starting Season 4.

Is it just me, or did Lee Adama become more insufferable as the season(s) progressed?  ;D

Finally finished Battlestar Galactica 4.5.

My thoughts below after the SPOILER WARNING!







SPOILERS



















Was only supposed to watch The Last Frakking Special but finished with a mad dash through episodes 13 to 20.

The Dualla suicide (Episode 11) I didn't see it coming only because it didn't have the usual foreshadowing shorthand - - - like those quick cuts to Gaeta's disgruntled face before he embarks on his violent revolution with Zarek - - -but she was in many ways a summing up of the emotional tenor of the fleet: juggling an illusion of normalcy while standing on the precipice of a suicide ledge. The trauma of Earth, the last outpost of relief,  turning out to be a wasteland  - - and all the traumas piling up on them for the last three seasons - - -pushed everyone to some kind of brink. For Dualla, it was a bullet to the brain after the happiest night of her life  . . ."your smile has returned" Gaeta tells her just seconds before.  It's quite chilling, that.

I also quite like the arc of both Zarek and Gaeta. Much as I understand how his ambitions have corrupted Zarek's idealism and the brunt of Gaeta's traumas(his persecution, his maiming),these two have  always had a streak of snaky in them  and the arc their characters took made perfect sense - - -specially given the last thing Gaeta says to Baltar before they shoot him. (Don't have a clue - - or don't remember - - what secret they share, though. Help?:?: ) When Zarek and Gaeta smile at each other before their execution, there was something conspirational and shadowy yet oddly benign in that exchange.

I like that sole tube of toothpaste. Humanity's remains reduced to fighting over one tube of toothpaste.

As for the three-part finale . . .still processing.

A bit iffy with the Dylan song use, still.

I felt iffy about the Starbuck ending,too, but am warming to it.

The pathos of Tyrol was touching. A bit more so than Adama and Roslin's final scene. And Adama's last line of dialogue  . . yeah.

Saul Tigh turned out to be the character I liked the most from all four seasons.

More later.

He was Baltar's "chief of staff" on New Caprica.

I know that  . . but didn't everybody know that already, thus not making it as much of secret anymore? That's why Starbuck forced him into an airlock with intent to kill, if memory serves.

I'm thinking there's something that happened during the webisodes. Those are the only things I haven't seen of BSG.

I agree with you. The finale was definitely brilliant. I may not be that religious but I believe in Angels.

When I get to watch the episodes again in a boxed set, I hope I get a more solid idea what happened to the cylon skin jobs (since they cannot procreate by themselves, maybe they interbred with the humans?)

SO bibiyakin na naman yung season 4 into two installments - 4.0 and 4.5, just like season 2?
