Judgment day's here, sinners! REPEEENT!!!

FRACK FRACK FRACK! I guess everyone has seen Battlestar Galactica's last episode (we're talking about season 2 here by the way, so focus!)
DAMN IT WAS GOOD! And DAMN THEM because the next episode will be 'till October. Fracking October! EIGHT MONTHS!!!!! ARGGHHHH!@&#*#*($**(#@!!!!!

*Breathe Ms. Mysterious. Breathe*

As you can all see, I'm not really into long waitings. Anyway, "Lay down your burdens" the 90- minute season finale, took me by surprise. There was no way I could have guessed what Ron Moore and his crew were taking us. It was just incredible.
On the other hand, I have to admit that there were a couple of episodes and situations in this season that were not quite convincing. Somewhere along the way, Moore just forgot about the characters. He forgot to their personalities and how they would react to specific situations. Or who they would love.
Examples? (SPOILERS here people, don't read if you don't want to know what happens!)
The whole Lee - Dualla relationship was totally unbelievable. No chemistry, no good reason for them to fall in love. And then Billy dies and no one cares! No funeral, no tears. They just kept on living as he never existed. And what about how the Lee- Starbuck relationship ended? Sorry, but I never bought it.

In spite all these small annoying details... I just LOVE this show. And the season finale was amazing, starting with the nuclear detonation by Gina (one of the multiple number 6 versions) that destroys Cloud Nine and other ships. Dean Stockwell's brief but enjoyable performance that would turn everything upside down. President Roslin and the Galactica crew cheating on the elections. Baltar becoming the President. Then New Caprica, one year later and the cylons arriving. Baltar surrendering. Both Adamas leaving the system and the defenseless civilians down in New Caprica at the mercy of the cylons.
WHOAAA. Just fracking A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.

So that's it. No more Galactica 'till October. At least enjoy yourselves watching the behind the scenes documentaries on Galactica's official site, or listen to some podcasts. And when you're done with that and you realize you still miss the show, you can do your very own What New Battlestar Galactica character are you quiz . (Useless but we need to kill some time, people) And if after doing all these you still feel miserable, you can join Ms. Mysterious and cry with her .

Actually how do we call ourselves? Star Trek has their "trekies", Doctor Who, their "whovians", how do we call ourselves? "galacties? Gala...g..g... Okay. Whatever. Time to go and keep up with my crying.
