Fleeing the Cylon menace ...
I have just sat and watched the first four episodes of the final season of Battlestar Galactica back-to-back, and I'm exhausted!
The only element of this whole series that annoys me is the macho-American style of the military, and the way they reach for the endless supply of alcohol at every crisis. They seem incapable of handling the events without a glass or bottle in their hand, and with the amount they consume it's amazing that they can walk, let alone be fit to carry out their duties.
That aside, the story line continues to twist and turn, with major characters being disposed of along the way. These concluding episodes are really shifting along at high speed. Though I remain very fond of the original series, especially the music, the new has developed the idea way beyond those standard science-fiction boundaries.
