This month, I watched the end of Battlestar: Galactica. It wasn’t canceled. After the 2003 miniseries and four seasons, the writers wrapped up the story. I’ll really miss the show as the show was simply unpredictable — you didn’t know what was going to happen next, and the stories kept me on my toes. Sure, there were one or two bad (or “eh”) episodes, but not every episode can be a home run.
The show had so much going for it, but I think I will especially miss the space battles. They were so ingenious, surprising, and fun. Some insurmountable battle with seemingly no way to prevail, yet the humans would use some crazy strategy that made you go, “Wow, I never thought of doing THAT. That is awesome!”
In honor of the end of Battlestar: Galactica, some links.
- IGN.com published their list of Battlestar: Galactica’s 20 best storylines and moments. I would agree on each one.
- Entertainment Weekly recently put together The Beginning of the End: A ‘Battlestar Galactica’ Oral History, the background history on how the miniseries was produced, despite all the hate coming from the original BSG fans.
I’m gonna miss that show. 🙁
