Day 26 - OMG WTF? Season finale
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA I AM LOOKING AT YOU.
There were parts of Daybreak that I loved. Adama and Roslin's resolution was beautifully, painfully perfect. The mingling of Cylon and human blood was wonderful. The Agathons and the Tighs gratified my inner romantic, although the Tighs felt a bit squicky if only because their relationship was earlier portrayed as mutually destructive, and I was a little surprised that Helo survived (don't get me wrong, I was intensely grateful and happy that he did, just surprised). And I admit to a little bit of "d'awww" with Baltar and Caprica, even though (for him at least) it was kind of a Karma Houdini moment.
On to the WTF.
Starbuck is the biggest one. I mean, they didn't even try to explain her. AND THE FREAKING CYLONS OMG WTF WAS THAT THEY DID NOT HAVE A PLAN JUST ADMIT IT. PS: Authors, mitochondrial Eve doesn't work the way you think she does. The flashbacks alternately grossed me out and made me go "WHAT." And WTF was with the last five minutes or so? Treat technology right and it won't bite you, WE GET IT. The ENTIRE FREAKING SERIES has been about that. You could've left it at "It's almost heavenly, it reminds me of you" and while we would've been BAWLING, we probably would've liked it much more. Argh.
But my biggest pet peeve is that we were expected to believe that these humans would willingly give up all their technology in favor of a hard and probably short life, just like that. I DON'T THINK SO. Lee fucks it up again and leaves the audience going WHAT.
It made me go WHAT a lot, basically, and I was not pleased. Except with Adama and Roslin, and the Agathons. I am pleased with them. *sniffle*
In conclusion, FUCK YEAH AGATHONS.
