Topic: 419

Did we really need a filler episode this close to the end?

Very disappointing

Re: 419

Yea... didn't expect a filler here.
Still building up the mood for the last two epsiodes maybe... but clearly no need for that.

Re: 419

did they really say fuck instead of frack in the episode? i mean i'm pretty sure baltar said: I need this like a fucking hole in the head

Re: 419

IMO some of them are going to die in the course of the next few eps - that's why they added some background to the characters.

Re: 419

Disappointing

Re: 419

This episode should have started with the last 11 minutes and went from there...

Re: 419

I totally agree, but I guess that's what the finale is all about....

i'm going to eat your brains and gain your memories...

Re: 419

But isn't the next episode (next being last) 2 hours?

Re: 419

supposedly yes, but still. Not enough! How are they going to fit it all in, there is still alot of "truth to be revealed"...

Re: 419

well, fuck them if they do it like atlantis who crammed 3 episodes into 1.

Re: 419

yes, but SGA crammed it all into 1 normal length episode. I read that our last BSG episode is supposed to be 2hrs long.

Re: 419

I will end like the sopranos....

Re: 419

Nah it'll end w/ everyone smilling and hundreds of people attending the victory celebration.  Awards will be given out to the saviors of the battle of yavin, with everyone wearing their best dress uniform.   The sun will be shining down when chewy yells and the entire audience stands at full attention..... wait this could be another movie. 

There's really one way the series can end... Galactica going up in a ball of flames.

Live free, fight well and die beautifully.

When did you become a klingon ponch?

Re: 419

ok... where in the FRAK did you get a KLINGON response from all that.... star wars is obvious but the quote at the end is in reference to an obscure 80s sci-fi movie called "Battle Beyond the Stars." You may remember it because it has the A-teams HANNIBAL portraying a rough and tough space cowboy.

for all the younglings out there that haven't seen it... try to find a blockbuster video that might have it on VHS or something in the back.  Try to watch as much as you can stand... it'll help you to appreciate how much an evolution that sci-fi has gone through over the decades.

I was sure it was a fuck when watching the show - now listening to the mp3 it is obvious it was, it seems that they wanted to get at least 1 actual swear word in before the show finished and Baltar was an obvious choice because they can claim it is just the accent and a misunderstanding.

It was pretty lame from the outset doing the whole Frack word anyway, let's very thinly disguise his particular word and then use it constantly. These are the great minds that keep giving us filler episodes and holding us hostage waiting for some revelation that will tie it all up in a neat little bow, with less than 2 hours to go, and news of some form of movie in the works - i doubt this next week will make me happy with this show, but i could be wrong and hailing them as complete geniuses after the 'finale.'

And yet it is still more engaging than Dollhouse!

On the up side, it gave me something to do for a few years, even if this last 10 episodes have sucked.

iirc... This is not the first time this discussion has been had... my opinion is that rather than do another take, or use a less passionate one, they have just let it slide...

oh, come on... it was the eighties and they were saying frack on tv... you gots to admit that's pretty cool... and using frak has become so commonplace these days in the real world... that in itself is pretty awesome...
