When they FTL-Jump just about the planet and start burning up, all the vipers shoot out and it FTL-jumps again just above the planetThe Adama Maneuver was the best thing EVAR!

Yes

Sad ending to it though, poor Saul, Poor Kara, Poor... Gater...? This is where the suck starts isn't it?

There's worse to come for Gaeta in the series, some of it sooner than you might think.

And yes, the suck does start here. Once you've seen Exodus Part 2, the show's hit it's peak and starts going downhill.

Downhill?! Are you kidding? Hello!? Crossroads Part I and II, anyone?

Plus, the Gaeta/Zarek arc in Season 4 is easily one of the best stories of the entire series...

Bah. Gaeta was a sack of shit, and the more the writers tried to make me empathize with him in later seasons, the more offended I became.

Sure, it's a good two-parter, but nothing compares to Pegasus/Resurrection Ship or Exodus Part 2.

Crossroads? Crossroads?? laff

Four Cylons revealed in musical climax, surprise return of character, the Baltar trial, and Romo Lampkin? I'd say that amount's a to a bit more than "good two-parter".

I'm not saying that Exodus sucked, far from it. But to make the ridiculous statement that the show sucked after it is complete BS. I'll be the first to admit that the second half of Season 3 after Exodus drags more than a bit and is mostly filler episodes, but Season 4 was a definite return to form.

I'll be the first to admit that the second half of Season 3 after Exodus drags more than a bit and is mostly filler episodes, but Season 4 was a definite return to form.

After Exodus, there was no way the show could ever surpass itself. Therefore it could only go downhill. And it did, since it became apparent that the writers had written themselves into a corner, such as the sudden realisation that since the last five Cylons hadn't been shown after the New Caprica occupation and the ensuing attempt to rationalise it.

The second half of Season 3 got filled up with standalone and mediocre episodes like Hero, The Woman King, and way too much of the first half of season 4 was spent with Starbuck and co wandering around on the sewage ship, to the point where anything of note only happened in the last two episodes.

As for the second half, it was more wandering around, with the writers not seeming to know where they were taking the story, and throwing in stuff like the mutiny (cramming this in when you're four episodes from the end and a Battlestar-sized load of answers are still outstanding is not a good sign) and Ellen Tigh apparently developing two entirely different personalities between episodes in an apparent attempt to paste over the cracks.

And while they did manage to pull an acceptable finale out of the hat, it didn't entirely hide the fact that it didn't really live up to to the standards of Season 1/2, and raised questions like whether every last person in the fleet would really have thrown away all their technology, medicine and knowledge on a whim.

Aw man, a wave of nostalgia hit me again last night when some stupid documentary on our national tv decived it was a good idea to use the whole musical repertoire of BSG for background music. A traversty I tell you. I miss BSG. Come onnnn Novemberrrr.

Acording to Olmos , if "The plan" does well there may be more Galactica movies ... 

problems:
1-Its not confirmes.. it was an Olmos only statement..
2-More movies... more prequels?

Still.. i personally , tought pointless , im convinced that Galactica's fleet is not the only one that survived, Pegasus apart there were so many ships with non CNP (the infected software that doomed Colonials) FTL drives that could jump away.. even we saw many survivors in one part of Caprica near the capital .. and Caprica was only one of 12 colonies.. i know about the radiation poisoning and so.. but its impossible to wipe out everyone in all 12 planets when Starbuck and Helo encountered a big group with no search (and yes..i know the "god made them meet" magic-plot RDM trade mark)

Again, Avoiding everything that is being said.

Just finished season 3. Awesome... Crazy reveal.

Tigh and Chief i'm saddened by, Anders i don't really mind and the other chick kinda came out of no where. I still miss Billy.

So Kara is totally the 5th.

Can't wait to get into season 4. smile

So... uh...

We're part cylon?
hmpf Only finished it earlier today, still digesting it. Not sure if i liked the ending. The mutiny 2 parter towards then end was great, but could have occurred at anytime really.

Sad that anders went wonky. Very touching when Laura died. Stuff...
Thought the Ellen as the 5th reveal was lame. She so didn't deserve to be the 5th, but I do think she came into her own eventually.

ALSO, So Kara, whilst not the 5th, she is potentially the daughter of number 7 right? and Kara MKII was an angel...

The real life scene of the opera house thing was really well done.

I'll talk more soon.

Oddly enough, I just finished it today, as well.

Well most of the character arcs had pretty satisfying endings, overall there were a few too many asspulls to make for a truely satisfying resolution. I mean, literal Deus Ex Machina? Ehhhhhhhhhhh...

But yeah, the Mutiny Arc owned, and the first part of Daybreak was utter sweetness. It's too bad the ending just felt like that couldn't really explain what was going on without resorting to 'God did it!'

THINGS!

So apparently the "Daniel was Kara's Father" thing was nothing more than fan speculation, and one of the creators said the main function of Number Seven was to account for their counting error of Assigning Number 8, then saying there were the Final Five. Laaaaame.

And yeah, I've decided i didn't really like how it ended. As if EVERYONE would agree to get rid of technology.

I liked that they showed the "humble" agricultural roots of Gaius Baltar, but this might have been explored earlier in the series.

I don't understand why the fleet never decided to arm the other ships as backup. Or the Adama maneuver where you sacrifice the good ship for an older and crappier one.

The Plan was really good, but I don't get why they ended it with [spoilera Nude Cylon Square Dance.  How did that relate to the revelation that Cavil was being manipulated by Billy at all?    And the battle with the Enterprise, while superbly rendered and scored, seemed like gratuitous fanwank on the part of the producers.[/spoiler]

So, I thought The Plan was very good. Dean Stockwell is the fucking man, even when gut-stabbing innocent orphans.

Still never found out what happened on the Olympic Carrier during the episode 33, which I thought was going to be revealed in this movie. But whatever, it was good to look back at so many of those early plotlines. Also nice to see Simon, the forgotten Cylon get some airtime for once.

I love the version of "All Along the Watchtower" that was used during that scene. I must have listened to it 100 times the following 3 days after I watched the series finale. (I meant to look it up after the season 3 finale, but I kept forgetting.)

Anyone watch the Caprica pilot? I thought that was great. I'll check out that show when it comes on.
