No, it had a bunch of clouds. You can't make out any continents.

That's alright if that's what it was, but they left it way too up in the air for my tastes.

Great ending to the series. Seriously.

LOVED the ENDING of the show. So nice - nice RDM cameo too. Loved the Head Six/Baltar walking through NYC now and then the "All Along The Watchtower" to end it....and the montage during that....

All that has happened will happen again?


Definately a strong ending. :)

The cameo was a bit cheesy, but in a good way. :lol:

Overall, I really enjoyed the episode, and I think it wrapped up everything I wanted to know. Really solid ending, and I'm glad the big battle didn't drag beyond the first hour.

Except, they left things a little ambiguous with the other cylons.[/i]

Man I totally cried during the last half hour of the show.

I liked the finale a lot more than I ever expected to. A lot was vague but it was still really satisfactory (even though Starbuck's end was a little weak IMO).

But overall -- what a fantastic show BSG turned out to be. I'm glad I got to take part in this whole phenomenon in a tiny way.

Well, the battles were cool.

I guess it's a good thing we saw all those interviews saying they weren't really gonna answer any major questions of the plot, because i would have been way more disappointed.

I guess you could say it was a great character study. Not a very good story (I mean, the entire series). But great characters.

Well, I'm still not too sure what Starbuck was. Angel? Ghost?

I guess Head Baltar and Six were angels???

So the message of the whole series is that technology is bad? Luddites good?

That's how I read it, she was an angel, or some sort of tool of god. Same as the Baltar and Caprica.

I think the message of the whole series was not that technology is bad, but losing our humanity within the techology is bad. He says while posting on an internet message board :D

So was Starbuck that way from the start, or did she die and an angel replace her?

Who really created the cylons if the 13th Tribe were Cylons who predated the mechanical cylons created by the Colonials. This ties into the whole "this has happened before" bullshit.

What is the cylon God. Is it real? Is it some nebulously mystical force that, in true OMD fashion exists because "It's magic, bitch?" Or was it just something that squeezed of deus ex machinas like cleveland steamers?

How did the song just happen to hold the actual coordinates for Earth. Which apparently was a Psuedo-Earth that no one knew about except daniel. And why was it something that activated the Five. Another deus ex machina.

These are questions they seeded the series with the intentionally generate and build interest in the show. With the end of the series, we find out they were nothing more than that. They were important points in the plot that were intended to develop the story. They were just candies to get us to open our mouths long enough for a cock to be rammed in. And no one has spit that cock out because it apparently tastes like apple-flavored jolly ranchers.
