BSG finale squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!  

OMG, OMG, OMG! THAT WAS FRAKKING AWESOME!!! *hyperventilates*

Lee: If you weren't already my personal hero, you would be after today. *awe*
Laura: Suck it up, and take a good hard look in the mirror: I know you can.
Bill: You came good. *nods approvingly*
Kara: I love you, don't you EVER leave again! you better not be a Cylon, but it's pretty damn obvious that you are
Tigh: Cool reveal!
Sam, Tory, Chief: Meh, though it's cool that there are two Cybrids now, we assume...

OK, my brain's switching on again now, I may yet be able to achieve actual meta. Or not.

Pilots! Earth! Cylons! Music! Wheeeeeeee!!!!!

Lee is my hero too! His speech on the stand was just amazing! Between him and Tigh (gah, how much did I love Tigh's reaction to the cylon-reveal!), I am a flaily puddle of fangirl goo by the end.

At which point I do my crazy Kara's-not-dead dance! Wheeeeee!

Very much looking forward to your meta later on :)

I know! *twirls you* Tigh's response was awesome. And Lee is ... I'm all out of words. *glows*

Kara's not dead! Kara's not dead! *dances*

Just posted. Phew!

OMG, I forgot Tigh's "I think I'm an officer of the Colonial Fleet and I'm damn well going to act as if I am one" heroics. I nearly cried, bless the man. Bless all the robots! We're going to Earth!

*calm calm*

And yes, Tigh's heroics were so awesome! Wheee!!!

BWA! That last sentence is almost exactly what Iwas going to say ("Whee! Pull-back! Bob! Earth! Yay!") After all the guilt and pain and claustrophobic misery, it was such a rush! I don't care if the whole thing's a joke and it's explained away in ten minutes next year, it was just so good to get out there! And Lee back in a viper and being teasted by Kara! Wheeee!

Lee has more courage and integrity than anyone. Let's elect him President! Can't believe Gaeta lied on the stand. He's in an odd place. As for the Radio Crew - so far they only think they're Cylons due to their deductive gifts, although Tigh only goes back with Adama about eight years and Cavil was an 'old man' model too, so hm. But the whole of the resistance? Mind you, the New Caprica invasion was the idea of a *branch* of Cylons, so maybe they were rebelling against a rabble of rebel robots.

I couldn't believe poor Lee was still upset about the 'Olympic Carrier'. That was prophetic of me to put up that cap from 'Water' of him angsting about it. :D

Exactly! The show gave us payoff after all this time!!

Yesssss!!! *twirls* Like you, I really don't care what happens next year right now, I'm just revelling in the glorious moment.

Lee has more courage and integrity than anyone. Let's elect him President!
*puts on 'Lee for President' badge* I concur!

I couldn't believe poor Lee was still upset about the 'Olympic Carrier'.
I could! I love that it was the first thing out of his mouth, poor sweetheart. It came so early and it was SO scarring and oh, my poor darling Lee! *cuddles him* There's no way you could ever be the same man after doing that, and I love that they referenced it here.

I was afraiod to watch for ages because of the huge burden of gloom, and had to pause just before Lee's testimony because I couldn't face the angst of him having to rat out his father. Luckily it didn't come to that. The ending was just such gigglyfun and completely unexpected!

The 'Olympic Carrier' affair was pretty huge s it set up Lee's trust of Laura and distrust of Papa. He really took in the 'piece of paper I carry around' message and carried all the names around for a hell of a long time. (I'm in a snit with Laura right now, so I'll just say she probably used the paper a week later to do sums on the back ;) ) They could have referenced an even deeper source of angst - the twenty ships left behind in the miniseries, which was also partly Lee's 'fault'.

Oh Lee, let me count the ways.

I understand the FEAR. I confess I paused for breath during the episode as well. And then the eppy really delivered!

I love that! I love it to pieces. There are so many little echoes and references to the way that Lee (and others) remember those that were lost, and often even with the deaths that were indirect, there's a strong burden of responsiblity and guilt. Remember Kara listing the names of the fallen pilots and Lee stepping in to finish for her when she couldn't go on? I adored that scene too: another reminder of how they carry all this around.

Hee! I'm in a snit with her too. *glares*

True! And of course Lee's guilt in his personal life goes back waaay before Cylons... *huggles him*

I LOVE HIM! I LOVE HIM SOOOOOO MUCH!

Damn, that was heartbreaking. The best thing about that sort of continuity is the shared feeling of being able to join in at home... Flat-top, who lost it to a probe accident... now they'll mention Chuckles who lost it at the tyllium plant, oh, and poor Crashdown... The best thing was that Kara had said earlier that she didn't remember anyone, especially someone's red-dress girlfriend and then she ended up next to Kat next to that girlfriend on the board and now she's back. Funnily, I don't feel cheated by her death episode, which is clever. I think it's because the episode was about her fear of death, which is still valid, and about Lee and Papa's grieft, which is also valid.

I'm sure Lee feels guilty for his brother's death as well somehow.

I LOVE LEE ADAMA SO MUCH I AM SHOUTING IT NAKED ON A CRAPPY ALIEN PLANET!

I know!!! That was so great--so moving that Kara did remember them. And yeah, I don't feel at all cheated by her death either. I loved Maelstrom--I think it was a fantastic episode and wouldn't have missed it for anything.

Of course! ;-) *huggles him*

I think I saw elsewhere, which I'll steal - I love Lee Adama so much I'm going to marry someone else just to get over him!

I hope Ron doesn't start next season with "TWO MONTHS LATER" or something. I want to know how they get out of the space battle, as well as all the other stuff.

Now I have all of this year's 'Lost' and 'Smallville' to get through, which is something. Plus I should start caring about 'Doctor Who' on Saturday but meh. Cast too small, hero too heroic, no Lee ;)

I LOVE LEE ADAMA SO MUCH I'LL DIE, EVEN IF IT MEANS I TURN OUT TO BE A CYLON, DAMMIT!

Yeah, I hope it picks up in the space battle. I don't want a jump forward on this. I was thinking about how different this was to last year's finale. Last years was all DOOM and bleakness and time jumps, and this one was full of hope and, I hope, real time continuity.

Cast too small, hero too heroic, no Lee ;)
HAhahahaa! Priceless! And yes. I do love DW, but ... but... it's not BSG. It's not LEE.

Last years was all DOOM and bleakness and time jumps
And, let's face it, fatsuits ;)

This year, even with a giant space battle ahead and secret Cylons in key positions, it just feels so open and hopeful. No-one's going to spend their time cowering on a mudball or sulking in an empty ship. Even if they die it'll be sort of honest.

I am hanging onto DW for the dalek redemption. IT WILL HAPPEN. Daleks are our friends!... and now I have been meta-ing for four hours. Eek!

Perfectly put!

Dalek redemption? I don't think I even want to ask... ;-) (Though I was very moved by the Dalek of Woe in whatever-that-episode-was.)
fruitsome: p_cartoon dalekgrapefruitzzz on March 30th, 2007 04:28 pm (UTC)
I was very moved by the ep 'Dalek' and the idea that maybe the poor little creatures inside the Dalek suits might be some use. But then I think that about Centurions too, so maybe I should just slink off before I start campaigning for Robot Rights...

Also *pimp*

Yes, that was a wonderful episode! Poor little mites! I don't know if I can make the leap to Centurions though... I hates them. The show might have to do some more work on me before I fully convert. ;-)

They haven't shown any good traits so far but they're slaves! They haven't even been programmed to talk ;) Actually, it could make a good fanvid subject if I can think of a really sympathetic song.
