Twin Peaks: Snoqualmie

Thoughts on the BSG finale

We finally got caught up on Battlestar Galactica. There are spoilers behind the LJ-cuts. I'm a little tired, so I apologize for rambling a bit.

Some have said that the writers played it a bit safe with the finale. That may be so, but I think at the end of a series, people want some degree of comfort and closure about the characters' resolutions, and I think they mostly succeeded with that despite some significant flaws. Not to damn with faint praise, but it was at least more satisfying than the X-Files series finale. I would have liked less glossing-over of Starbuck and the Final Five (zomg we maded teh cylonz, yey!), but it was adequate. However, it's no "Sleeping in Light." For starters, Babylon 5's prophecies actually worked. ;) It's also no "Beyond Life and Death," but that's likely just as well, given that I still find that episode of Twin Peaks to be truly disturbing.

Only tangentially related, but are we establishing a pattern for actor Tahmoh Penikett in terms of his characters having sex with a woman who isn't the woman he believes her to be? :)
