    I thought the first half hour of this (one and a half hours) a little slow. The mission to Caprica got resolved a little quickly considering how long it would take to return. The priest turned out to be a Cylon (don't see how no one realised there were two of them before.)

    Then on to the election - why rig it? Why do something illegal? Use political means. Why not just spread the rumour about Baltar? He didn't/couldn't deny it. So, Roslin has no proof. So What! Rumours need proof? Since when? That's why they are rumours!

    Then they jump a year ahead! Nicely done, I thought, but we have missed so much. They have been on New Caprica longer than they were running from the Cylons - that's what Adama said.

    Obviously, the Cylons were going to return. It was only a matter of time. They deserve to be wiped out by the Cylons.

    So, I guess that is the end of the series (and the end of man). :)
    We will never find out if Earth exists. ;)
    Good series, but unfulfilling ending ;)

    Strange one this I thought. When they jumped the year forward it was so kind of surreal in a way I was thinking, this isn't real, someone is dreaming this - you know, like a premonition. But apparently not.

    Was it my imagination or had Apollo got a little soft and flabby !

    I've seen a soundbite interview with James Callis - Baltar - about season 3 and he says its the darkest sci fi ever coming up......so we'll see

    As I warned you before, it was THE worst, stupidest, insert whatever derogatory word you want, episode to any series I've seen to date. I mean come on....after all she's done, lacking any common sense AT ALL knowing Baltar is in bed with the cylons, Adama and the President hand over control of mankind to him? I mean who CARES if you cheated - you were doing what you had to do to save mankind, that isn't something in which you can make a mistake. Nevermind the other stupid petty lead ups - oh except somehow the cylon girl getting the nuke and somehow Baltar is never linked to it. Go figure - the entire colony are a group of regressed infantards. Sorry, this series still really gets under my skin, mainly because they took something that was very good and I was enjoying and totally ruined it. It's not like Sci-Fi shows grow on trees nowadays. Thank god for Doctor Who. They can just drop BG - though even the good things I like about Doctor Who won't last forever.
