Re: Battlestar Galactica Series Finale: "Daybreak, Part II"

Maybe I need to go to the LOST forum and start the topic about their finale episode. :-p

Early much? :-p

It better be good to make up for the trash last month of episodes.

The most politically engaging, culturally relevant, socially entertaining and spiritually rewarding experience I had this past week was watching the two-hour finale of Battlestar Galactica, at a special press screening hosted by Sci Fi network, which announced yesterday it would soon be called Syfy. Without sharing any of the details about the two-hour conclusion to be aired this Friday, it ranks among the best - if not the best - of all series grand finales.

What fans want to know is if they'll be disappointed by the final answers. Is this final episode true to what has come before? Does is respect the fans and yet offer some staggering suprises?

The short answer is yes. It's an absolute kick-ass finale, and I can guarantee that when the final credits roll, you'll want to watch it again.

"The first hour-and-a-half of the finale is so intense, you'll find it difficult to breathe. So many questions will be answered — including some you probably thought wouldn't be addressed due to time constraints. Also, if Mary McDonnell isn't recognized by the Emmys this year, it'll be a frakkin' shame. She had the crowd in tears more than once with her brilliant performance."

if this is what the critics are saying, this outta be a blast!

Re: Battlestar Galactica Series Finale: "Daybreak, Part II"

Here's part of an old interview with Ron Moore which took place in July 2008. It includes questions that season 4.5 is supposed to answer. The line of questioning doesn't reveal anything about the final episode beyond whether or not certain questions will be answered. If you want to consider that being spoiled, then don't read on.

AS: The identity of the final Cylon, we will find this out?

RDM: Yeah. [Mo here: Answered -- Ellen.]

The origin and nature of the Final Four and how they're different from the rest of them?

Yes. [Answered.]

The origin of the rest of the skinjobs?

Yes. [Answered.]

What happened to Earth and what happened to the 13th Colony?

Yes. [What happened to Earth -- Answered. What happened to the 13th Colony -- partly answered or fully answered? The 13th Tribe, the Cylons, left Kobol and settled on Earth -- does that cover it? Tell me in comments if you consider the second part of the question fully answered.]

Who, if anyone, is orchestrating all of this?

Basically, yeah. I don't know if it's going to be wrapped up in a neat bow. The show has an answer for it, whether it's a satisfying answer, I don't know. [Not answered yet]

Will "All this has happened before and it will happen again" be explained in some way?

Yes. [I'd call that partly answered -- there have clearly been Cylon and human wars for hundreds or thousands years. Do you consider this question answered?]

The opera house?

Yes. [Not answered yet.]

What happened to Kara when she went through the Maelstrom?

Pretty much. [Not answered yet. I'm guessing she was a beneficiary of the kind of "organic memory transference" technology that the Final Five used, but we don't know for sure.]

Identity and nature of the "head" characters?

Yes. [Not answered yet. I'm guessing they're Cylon projections of some kind.]

Tigh and Six's baby, and whether that means Cylons can breed?

Yes. That's not a "yes" to whether they can breed -- the question will be answered. [Answered.]

The fate of Boomer and whether there are other 1's, 4's and 5's floating out there?

Yes. [Answered. Boomer, as well as Cavil, Simon and Doral (at least one of each), are all aboard the Colony.]

Roslin's health?

Yes. [Not fully answered, but it's not looking good.]

I really wish I had the Season 3 DVD set because for some reason, I really want to see Maelstrom again.

You missed out part of that interview

Explanation of what happened to Boxey?

Absolutely, he'll be back. He's been biding his time and plays a huge role in the finale

The finale is basically going to determine whether I think fondly of the show, or bitterly. Yeah, i'm really invested in this damn thing, there are fracking HUGE expectations riding on it that I hope it can fulfill.
Amen Raz....This show has been far from perfect, and anyone with honesty in their blood would admit to that. But, having said that, they have a chance to bring this to a good ending. I just hope it isn't a backdoor pilot for Caprica and leaves us having to watch that show for more answers..if it does? Yikes...

I will be very upset if we get an ending even implying that we need to see "The Plan" or Caprica just to see what is going on. I get enough of that attitude here on the board thank you very much.

I haven't yet seen or read anything that would even remotely suggest The Plan or Caprica will be required viewing for anyone wanting to follow BSG's storyline. I don't know why anyone would be concerned about that.

Because we are talking about a ratings driven industry. That episode showing us Baltar's dad was part of this seed planting I believe.

Considering the main families of Caprica have already been released and that Baltar grew up on a colony away from Caprica -- I doubt it. I don't believe anything in that scene had a "plant" vibe (besides the farming) other than to show how Baltar came to trust Six.
