Wow, I'm seeing so much BSG-rage on my flist, with tiny little pockets of squee. Fascinating.

So, I have to put my two cents in, for anyone who cares. I fall into the squee camp, with smatterings of WTF? But there is no rage.

You know what, I always thought the ending would be a little clumsy. I have never quite lost sight of the fact that RDM is a bit of a fuckwad sometimes. Remember when he thought it was a really good idea for Baltar to go into the opera house on Kobol and meet God, played by Dirk Benedict? /o\

So I was steeling myself for some industrial strength WTF, but I'm guessing by the reactions I'm hearing, that most were not. Oh well. *sigh*

I love that the uneasy truce with Cavil fell apart because of something so small and human as a secret murder of someone's wife. I just DIG that, the juxtaposition of the grand and sweeping and epic and the small and (cosmically) petty.

I love that Kara was not explained. There's nothing I hate more than being given ALL the answers. Some is fine, thank you. \o/

(BTW, there are some answers here, if you swing that way. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sarah_actually for the link)

I'm not going to go through every single little thing I loved and did not love. The thought is just exhausting. Suffice it to say, I was satisfied.

I did giggle my way through the last couple of minutes on contemporary Earth, partly because I was exhausted and hysterical by that point and partly because it was as subtle as a sledgehammer.

I'm happy with the unanswered questions. I like unanswered questions! Isn't that what fandom thrives on? As long as there aren't too many, and I think there was just the right amount here.

The Chief remains my favourite character, and not just because I want to #$!!% Aaron Douglas. I think hermitude is a sensible choice to deal with your anger management issues, especially when there doesn't appear to be any psychologists around to help everyone out with their epic multi-layered PTSD.

Go live on an island! Climb mountains! Have babies! Curl up and die! These are all valid lifestyle choices, after a journey like that.

I only have one very silly thing to say about Kara, which I was about to use for a subject line but then realised how spoilery it was: SHE'S NOT THE MESSIAH, SHE'S JUST A VERY NAUGHTY PILOT!!

Hee. ♥. Nice one, RDM. Goodnight, good work, I'll most likely kill you in the morning. If the rest of the fandom doesn't beat me to it.

Bye bye, show. I'll be seeing you again, over and over, I expect. Except for the episodes that I violently hate, but this wasn't one of them.
