As per my previous post, I watched the final Battlestar Galactica episode on Friday. A two hour special wrapped up a four year series that has redefined what SF TV can do. Going into this finale there were un-answered questions and a fear that the writers would seek a cheerful end to a show whose grimness has always make it stand in stark contrast to Star Trek.

I was astonished to find sufficient light shone on the questions that I was satisfied with the explanations. The ending provided little in the way of cheer, keeping true with four years of dark mood. The insight that the episode offered was that God is not on anyone’s side; a lesson that several countries in the world should learn (Iran, Israel, USA for starters)

The finale was brave, satisfying, and confirmation that BSG is one of the greatest pieces of TV ever made.
