I'm not quite ready to join the (increasing?) ranks of Ron Moore bashers (or are they all just suddenly coming out of the woodwork?) but I *AM* worried about the finale myself - worried it's NOT going to pay off after all, like many of us expected it would. And I don't feel that was "just" based on that single comment by RDM - but it's based on that comment in light of how disappointed I have been with the final 5 - 6 episodes so far. I wasn't necessarily expecting all the answers yet myself - but I was at least expecting the writer's would *need too* use every bit of the precious little time they had left in these final few episodes, to finally start resolving all the questions & mysteries left unanswered and to finally start bringing together all the various plot threads and building up to the finale (and ramping up the tension) but instead...we have gotten *nowhere*!!! It's starting to make me very worried that RDM has actually just run out of ideas at this point and has NO IDEA how to effectivly resolve this story so he's just *coasting* and hoping we'll all think he's just intentionally making some daring artistic statement about the purposelessness of existence! (As if nihilism in art is anything original...) I keep *hoping* that in the end all of this will FINALLY pay off and it will make some sense - maybe in hindsight it *will* seem like a brilliant creative choice by RDM to make us feel just as hopeless as the Colonials & allied Cylons feel at this point....and not just the result of but I'm losing faith in that with each remaining episode.
