Six Feet Under has the best finale I've ever seen.

For me Babylon 5 and the Shield are at the top but I could see this one overcoming them.

I can't believe it's two nights away.

I don't think I've been this invested in a series finale since "All Good Things..."
For me, it's the DS9 finale.
I was older then. TNG ended while I was still in grade school. I remember that my parents had dragged me along to a neighbour's house and I insisted that I be allowed to watch the finale in peace in their basement as a condition of me coming along.

I'm going to have to stay of the internet until this gets broadcast in the UK on Tuesday.

TNG is the standard in which I judge Series Finales. If BSG can beat that, it will prove a lot in terms of longevity of this series. And it will make me really happy. I'm glad the reviews have been pretty good.

I think the understated nature of TNGs ending will be hard to beat in almost any show. It made me sniffle where frankly I bawled myself silly at B5 and SFUs final episodes, but still.

I have a feeling I will bawl myself silly at Daybreak Pt2.

TNG and Quantum Leap finals made me weep the most.

I have never cried during a TV show yet. I'm guessing if that were to ever happen, it'll be this Friday night. We'll see!

BSG has been patchy but when it's good, it's brilliant! And, generally it knows how to do grand finales. That, plus the positive reviews, and I'm looking forward to it even more.

Q: Did anyone at TVGuide.com attend the Battlestar Galactica press screening on Monday night? If so, what's the frakkin' word? — Danny

A: I am in Florida, exploring an unfamiliar civilization of a different sort (the retirement community), so we sent TVGuide.com Nerd High Priestess Erin Fox. Once Doc Cottle revived her with smelling salts, she said this: "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." Erin then hugged her Cylon toaster to her chest, placed a paper bag over her mouth and nose and breathed gently until it was safe to stand again.

Now I wanna Frakking Cry!!!!! :'(

Considering that I have cried during practically every episode of BSG, I expect to be a total mess.

A bunch of friends have asked if they can come over and watch the finale at my place. I told them all no. I'm going to be too much of a wreck!

I know what you mean - I quite frequently have a lump in my throat while watching moments in BSG that would have passed me by with no emotional engagement on other shows - sometimes for characters I didn't realise I liked or cared about before.

B5's "Sleeping In Light" made me weep uncontrollably when I saw it a couple of years ago, so I'm holding that up as the gold standard that "Daybreak" has to challenge.

Anyone else expecting a similar level of emotion, after all the "suns coming up" imagery in Sleeping In Light is very powerful and, well... "Daybreak"??
