Battlestar Galactica

Just finished watching the series finale of "Battlestar Galactica" and I have to say, "Fantastic!"  No, wait, that should be, "Fan-frakin'-tastic!"  It summed up all the plot points (I didn't think they could), was faithful to the characters, and echoed the best part of the original series.  All in all, it was a very satisfying finish to the best science fiction show ever put on the air.
--SPOILER ALERT--
That being said, here's my favorite parts of the final show:
  • We got to see some original Cylons from the first series mixed in with the new ones.
  • They stayed faithful to the death and resurrection of Starbuck.
  • They tied modern religion into the story, which sci-fi often forgets (often on purpose).
  • It explained the Number Six that Baltar kept seeing.
  • Brother Cavill killed himself (YAY!).
  • Laura died peacefully.
  • Tori finally paid for what she did to Calley.
  • The Opera House dream finally made sense.
And if you pay attention, there's a scene at the very end with Ronald Moore reading a magazine.  Very well done on everyone's part.  "So say we all!"
