It worked for Star Wars, frak it

So it worked for a fatally bad Lucas movie. I think it'd work for Battlestar Galactica too. I dunno about you, but Ron Moore's sudden "oh it's all the Divine and unknowable" turn, after four years of a good science fiction show with hard explanations, fair on made me sick. So if I wasn't so goddamn lazy, I'd either try it myself or set up a website appealing to those with skills.


I mean, seriously. You've got four years of footage. The first hour or so of the finale can probably stand fine on its own if you cut out a lot of the flashback crap-ola. The second hour? Yeah, well, here's your chance to show us you're not the white-flag-waving type, and try to actually give us some satisfaction. Pick some stuff Moore and co. didn't explain, and explain it. Personally I like the singularity->time travel option, a la B5's War Without End, but what do I know.

Seriously. Somebody. Save this series from sticking in my craw as the most ever let down by its ending piece of really awesome television in history. Please. I'm begging you.

Battlestar Galactica: The Real Frakkin' Finale would do fine.
