BSG races toward a breathtaking conclusion?

Sunday, February 15, 2009 by Dave Winer.

I was a skeptic at the beginning of the second half of the last season of Battlestar Galactica, one of my favorite shows of all-time, and a signature favorite of geeks everywhere.  Permalink to this paragraph

The first couple of shows in the run were depressing, who knew where we were going, certainly not anywhere remotely like we thought we were. That's okay, it turns out because where we were actually going is very science fictiony, which is good because that's what BSG is.  Permalink to this paragraph

Now what does it all mean? I don't have a clue. But that's the way I like it. I had to watch Friday's episode twice, just so I could hear what the characters were actually saying, because in the first pass all I could absorb was the wonderful weirdness of the arc the story was taking.  Permalink to this paragraph

Having listened, I'm still really really confused. And that's just fine!! Frack me. Gods damn it. So say we all. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph
