For fans of the great re-imaged series.

It’s all over

March 22nd, 2009 at 1:14 pm by David Farrar

The final episode of Battlestar Galactica screened last night. I’ll do spoilsers over the break, but will say it is a great ending and pretty much all the plotlines get wrapped up.

CTV has a slideshow of 23 great moments in Battlestar Galactica.

One reason I like the show so much (apart from being sci-fi) is the issues it has portrayed. You’ve had coups and counter-coups. An occupation and rebels. Are the rebels justified in killing collabators? This is one reason the UN had some of the cast fascilitate a discussion at their headquarters on human rights. The show got people thinking about these issues.

The only spoiler I’ll let out before the break is that the final scene is set on modern day Earth. But not as people might expect.

So what happened in the final? Click over the break.

Have just watched Part I of the series finale for the amazing show that is Battlestar Galactica. Part II which ends it all shows next weekend.

For those who are not watching the latest episodes, I’ll carry on after the break as there are major spoilers.


Battlestar Galactica Top Ten

March 22nd, 2008 at 12:20 pm by David Farrar

David Letterman has the cast of Battlestar Galactica on his show to read out the top ten reasons to watch the fourth and final season of Battlestar Galactica.

It starts in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait. Unlike Lost, which has started to lose the plot, BSG have been smart in doing just four seasons so it will hopefully go out on a high.
