I think the characters should say "fuck" instead of "frak."

Also, I think the producers should map out the main story arc in advance, so that the surprise plot twists MAKE FUCKING SENSE.

You know, I really like BSG, and I even really liked last night's episode, but I can't argue that some mapping would have done them a whole lot of good.

and this is why i will watch more of the show when it is out on DVD and i can find out which episodes to skip.

I hate made up swear words, they always grate on me. If your characters can't swear, don't put made-up words in their mouths.



Unless they're lolcats, I guess.

All this time I thought they were saying "fuck"! I swear!

Oh no, it was evident way back when the opening credits still said "...AND THEY HAVE A PLAN," that they did not, in fact, have a plan, but there are enough elements of the show that I really like that for a long while I kept hoping that it would all magically work out in the end. I think they reached a critical mass of incoherence with the death and resurrection of Starbuck and the revelation of the final 4 of 5, but the show's been on hiatus long enough that I allowed myself to forget that. Last night's episode hit me over the head with it again, and added some new, impossible-to-fit puzzle pieces.

As an aside, I want that cool pocket watch that stays shiny after two thousand years lying out on the seashore. And some radioactive jacks.

We should also specify that they not bring back "felgercarb".

I actually laughed out loud a few times during the last episode. I'm wondering whether they bumped into JJ Abrams at a bar about 10 years ago and JJ said, "Hey, I'm making boatloads of cash screwing with people's heads on this show of mine, Alias. The funny thing is, I've been making it up as I go along but everyone's calling me a genius! I got this new idea about an island..."

And Moore says, "Wow, I've been wanting to bring back Battlestar Galactica but haven't been able to figure out how to stretch it to syndication length without losing the audience!"

The rest is history.
