Battlestar Galactica: Best. Finale. Ever.

Friday, March 20, 2009

Obviously I'm a complete homer when it comes to this, and I'd never own up to disliking the Battlestar Galactica finale if I thought it was actually bad. I'd say "oh, it's how they wanted it to end" while secretly cursing Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Thankfully, it was unnecessary to lie. Why?

This was the most action packed, emotional, amazing, revelatory, and perfectly choreographed episode of television I've ever seen. It answered all of my remaining questions, and did it in such a way that I was simply entertained to the maximum level I possibly could be. As we watched the episode, my sister and I started sitting on the couch, moved to the edge of our seat, and during one section actually were sitting on the floor openly yelling at the television while grappling each others arms.

In. Sane.

I don't want to say anything about anything that happened in it, but man, I just can't even say enough about it. This is the ultimate swan song for my favorite television show, and I really figured there'd be no way they could satisfy me so completely.

So thanks Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Thanks Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell. Thanks Jamie Bamber and Katee Sackhoff. Thanks Tahmoh Penikett and Grace Park. Thanks Aaron Douglas, Michael Hogan, Kate Vernon, Michael Trucco, and Rekha Sharma. Thanks Michael Rymer, Jane Espenson, and Bear McCreary. To say you're amazing is simply because I don't have any more words to use.

Stupid TV shows getting me all emotionally attached and then leaving me.

You will be missed Bstar.

OMG, it was.....I can't find words to describe it. Whatever I could come up with would not do it justice! I loved every minute of it.

The Pad Thai was pretty darn good too.
