    How come the poll only goes up to Excellent? What are we supposed to do if it is better than that?


    Haven't you seen This is Spinal Tap?

    So the poll should go:

    Godlike
    Ascension
    Fatality
    Super Fantastico
    Excellent

    Excellent being the worst option of course. :p

    This is to important to have to wait through commercials, so I'll not start watching it until I have it on my DVR so I can skip those commercials. I can't wait. :)

    "Revelations" got an 84% Excellent rating in the grading thread and "The Oath" got 82% Excellent. I wonder what this will get.

    ^ Probably not as high. As a series finale, a lot of people may be disappointed. This is pretty much what it all comes down to. It's one thing to make a single pivotal episode, but to have a unanimously adored finale is something entirely different.

    Which is not to say it won't be incredible, but different strokes for different folks.

    I've seen it quoted quite a bit and I think I too have the same view, but this episode will go a long way towards me thinking if this was a good series or not. I know a lot of people love this show and even if it's just watching Tigh or Adama drink, it would still be awesome (Perhaps that's a bit of an overexaggeration, but it helps the point), I feel there is a lot riding on this episode because it's the end of the series and the writers have made a lot riding on this episode. I hope it's good, I can't wait, but there is still a part of me that is really wondering what to expect and whether or not I will be slightly (or more) disappointed when it's all said and done.

    It is forbidden to have "Robau" be an option on internet message board polls.

    If I rearrange a wee bit your list, it goes like this:

    Godlike
    Ascension
    Fatality
    Fantastico
    Excellent
    Super

    :eek: Uncanny!

    I'm calling the final scene right now, totally speculation:

    It's going to go back to Leoben's line in Flesh and Blood about how all of this has happened before, and all of it will again, except everyone will be cast in different roles. We're going to see the colonies again in the far, far future, established, perhaps right before/during/after the attacks. All of it will be happening again and we'll see all of our familiar actors again, only they'll be in the rolls of different characters. Apollo will be Baltar, Adama will be Cavil, Cavil will be Adama, Tigh will be Starbuck. :p

    You get the idea.

    I was thinking of that as well. I don't know how they would pull it off, unless everything goes black and then we see starbuck running in the corridors of Galactica etc,

    That is an interesting quote. Pity the follow-up question was "what about those who loved the the first 2 seasons?" Would have been nice to know.

    How about people stop bitching about the finale until after you see it. This is all starting to sound like the Star Trek forum for the new movie.

    I'm trying not to bitch about the finale, and I hope it is good, but there is nothing wrong with responding to biased articles. ;)

    Why let some jerk critic sour your experience going into the finale. Most of the time the critics are wrong, or have some bias, like they are anti-religion, etc.

    If we're going to play that game, I'll up the ante on the silliness and suggest that Kara, Lee, Baltar and a couple of others will be the "Final Five Cylons" of some future human race. :lol:

    If we're going that route, the let Richard Hatch be Commander Adama. C'mon, it'll only be one scene.

    or the Red Alert klaxon goes off, and Richard Hatch in the old colonial uniform is seen jumping into a Viper as Capt. Apollo.
