Wow, what a cliff-hanger to last night’s mid-season finale of Battlestar Galactica. I thought the episode was a bit rushed but they finally reached Earth and found a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Starbuck et all looked so disappointed; ever since the start they had held this vision of Earth as a paradise they were desperate to reach, only to find their dreams absolutely shattered! It ended on such a downer – brilliant!
Now we all have to wait until next year for the second half of this incredible series. To be honest I have found it all a little bit confusing with the religious psycho-babble, the Cylon civil-war and the uneasy alliance the fleet has formed with their enemies, but I just want to know what they are going to do next? Are they going to settle and just lump it, like they did on New Caprica? Are they going to explore the planet to see if anyone from the human race has survived? Will we see any recognisable landmarks like the Statue of Liberty or Big Ben, or is that going to be just a little bit too much like Planet of the Apes where Taylor stumbles across Liberty at the end? Will they find out what happened to turn Earth into such a desolate place?
Oooooh, I can’t wait that long, I need to know NOW!!!! 😉
