newnumber6: Ghostly being (Default)
So yeah, big BSG finale this weekend. Figured I might as well do a solo post. Spoilers will be behind the cut, non-spoilers before it.

Okay, as usual, generally well acted and directed. Maybe a bit of iffy bits, and a little too dark at times to tell for sure what was happening (at least for me).

However, as a finale, it didn't really satisfy me, and in fact has confirmed my feeling that the show seriously jumped the shark with the final 5 revelation. As I've become fond of saying, "The Cylons had A Plan. It would have been nice if the writers did too." The series is generally well written as far as individual episodes go, but, as a whole, it fails to hang together - plotline that I felt were important get dropped and characters occasionally seem to change suddenly because of it. Because of this, I doubt I'll watch the series, as a whole, again. I may watch individual episodes if I happen to catch them and I'm in the mood and like that one, but because they failed I won't be able to watch, say, daily reruns. Kinda like X-Files.

A few specific points Read more... )

Good Terminator episode that night though, I think it's finally got its groove back, and a better showing than there's been so far with Dollhouse.
