You complain about LOST, saying they're not giving answers.
Yet you give the BSG finale a 10, when it.. didn't give very many answers. Or make much coherent sense.
My enjoyment of stories usually comes down to the characters over plotting.
Plot heavy riddle-pictures & caper flix just aren't my bag [most of the time].
I understand some folks were keeping notebooks full of questions about BSG & are still doing so for Lost but, again, that's just not how I roll.
For me personally, I never had too much trouble following the motivations & emotions of the various characters on BSG.
I thought, as Anders might put it, the BSG finale was "perfect". Which is why I gave it a perfect score -- just as you Losties routinely give individual Lost epis perfect scores.
I honestly struggle to follow the individual motivations of most of those characters due to a critical lack of information --- Ideally all them seasons of flashbacks woulda covered that lack of info but instead they seemed to just use each & every opportunity (including the flashbacks) to create new questions instead of using the time to let us get a fuller grasp of who they are & what they want.
I usually guage characters by what they want. Besides Locke, Ben and a couple others I seriously can't get a grip on what most of the Lost characters want (outside of being rescued... ...although even that is obviously up in the air now).
I have no frickin clue what part Jeff Fahey's character has to play in the drama - beyond the obvious [pilot] - but because I dig his past works I'm always happy to see him get screentime. Sadly, that's what Lost is to me - highly budgeted "screentime" for some of my favorite genre actors. They may as well be reading the phonebook in front of an ILM bluescreen for all I can make of half the shit that goes down on Lost.
Although, Sayid & Sawyer are a couple wildcards I've come to appreciate...
Lemme ask you this; considering what Lost has been & been about... do you think its finale will end w/ the answer
or yet another question
? Would you want to have to bet the farm on it?
I seriously wonder.
