Will you cry when its over?

Are you going to miss nuBSG? Will you shed tears if a major character dies, or if Galactica herself is destroyed? Are you emotionally invested in this series?

I may shed a tear, depending on how it goes, if Adama goes down with the ship.

I have never been able to cry over a TV show or movie. I doubt that's going to change.

Re: Will you cry when its over?

If I do, I hope it's for a good reason. If it's not a good reason, then it will be because I'm regretting all the time I've spent watching and reading about BSG over these past few years.

Re: Will you cry when its over?

Well, considering my favorite character is Laura Roslin, and I did get the sniffles during the last episode, and even got a bit misty-eyed watching The Last Frakking Special, not to mention just how much I'm dreading seeing this show leave the airwaves for good...

Yeeeeaaaah, I'd say there's a distinct possibility I'm going to be a big wibbling mess tomorrow evening. I've already got a box of Kleenex set aside for the occasion.

Nope. I hope I will, however, be impressed. I already expect everyone to die, so if anyone survives, it's gravy.

Then I will start looking forward to Caprica!

Re: Will you cry when its over?

TV shows hardly ever manage to make me cry... except when they reach their final scenes. Depending on how it ends I may get a little teary-eyed.

Re: Will you cry when its over?

Only DS9's 'The Visitor' and The Shield's 'Postpartum' have ever made me shed an actual tear. As wonderful a show as BSG is, it's going to really have to be something else to make me cry openly.

Re: Will you cry when its over?

I have never full-on cried for a show. I've teared up before, and I've teared up frequently for BSG, but I have yet to cry. However, if they do a bang-up job and hit all the right emotional cues, it's possible.

Re: Will you cry when its over?

I might tear up if something really sad (or something extraordinarily happy) happens, but I certainly won't cry just because the show is over.

I just hope that when all is said and done, I can say, "That was an excellent finale."

Re: Will you cry when its over?

Yes, quite likely.

I don't cry often for TV or films. But once in a great while, I do. The finale of Voyager, as bad of a finale as it was, when they finally got home... sorry, tears. The finale of DS9, certainly some eye moisture. A few others. Not many.

Cry? I'm gonna need fucking oxygen after the episode ends. I'll be crying by the time the opening credits come along.

I will cry because I'll be so happy it's finally over.

Like a baby.

I'll be sorry to see it go... Battlestar Galactica was the greatest artistic achievement in the history of mankind. 24 hours from now there will be a hole in my heart that will never again be filled.


Too much?
