Monkey is still marathoning this, so this will torture him.  DON'T WATCH THIS MONKEY!  It'll ruin the whole show.

Here it is -- the original series finale.  The most shocking ending in sci-fi. 


Since edited a tiny bit.  (We originally continued the Thin Red Line thing with audio after the credits which seals the fate of our main guy to make room for the proposed 90's-era next generation revival.  Though, admittedly, the audio-only thing was a wee bit clumsy.) 

Also worth putting here to see if the "everyone dies" prediction for BSG can upstage this madness.

I'm worried by Jarvic.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Okay, so there are two episodes remaining for me to watch.

I feel a little cheated, however, by the feeling of how the previous few episodes were naught but fruitless, 'filler' content.

Yeah, season four has some filler.  Did you get the one where they're on the ship that needs to lose weight to break orbit?  That's one of the most shocking of the series, I think.  Just realizing that, after all this time, Avon is a villain.

And, of course, there's the finale.  Which will make you want to throw your TV out the window.

That was the last one I watched - I almost felt bad for Vila.

I love Avon, though.

What about Dr. Plaxton?

Avon's awesome.  Best character in sci-fi.

Monkey reports that he's 15 minutes into the final episode.  I told him to sit and watch and report back when he's done.

He's going into this with no knowledge of the finale, so I'm anxious to see his reaction.  Most people are enraged.  Some are satisfied (since season four works hard to make you dislike the characters).  One girl I dated was actually a bit weepy.

By the way -- Matt.  Want an early taste of BSG's inevitable bloodletting... Imagine following a show for four years and then getting this:
