This show, was supposed to suck the air out of the room and go down in flames with a shameless chorus of "If it ain't broke..."
I read once that Science Fiction was inherently optimistic. There have been exceptions, the cliche is Blade Runner... "It's dark." But this show is brutal, it has an almost antihumanistic vibe. You're slowly seeing not only the virtues of the survivors point of view, but the virtues of the cylons rationale for their elimination. It's just beautiful to watch unfold. I can't fracking wait for them to get to Earth... Oh so MUCH has to happen yet!!!
These are just a few thoughts I have on where the series may be headed;
1) The Cylons are obviously following the to Earth, to finish the whole race off.
2) Baltar is some form of Cylon or their creator, probably a unique cylon in the form of their creator.
3) Have the Cylons been around since the days of the Gods on Cobol, and simply re-introduce themselves as an invention of man? (Man creates Cylon, Cylons involved with war with gods, man flees to the 13 colonies, cylons infiltrate colonies and "invent" cylons then pick a fight over some shit that went down with the Gods...) Watch the Gods be the older and more evolved cylons and the new ones are just killing humanity to try to stir shit up...
4)Watch Earth be like in the ice age...
End that spoilerish nonsense.
Damn... Well, the season finale was awesome, I can't get enough of the ending from the phone call from Tigh to that silent exterior shot... it gave me goose bumps.
THIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN POSTED EARLIER, BUT BLOGGER WAS HAVING A SERVER PROBLEM, 2nd time in a week!!!!
