So we caught up to the “Battlestar Galactica” finale over the weekend, and you can put me firmly in the “contented” camp. I think it was a fine sendoff for the show and the characters — and entirely in keeping with the overarching themes of the series, as much as some may wish that were otherwise.
And don’t worry about your Fridays going empty. Remember when the promotional push for “Dollhouse” started to ramp up, and Joss Whedon took all that time to tell people that the show wouldn’t really be awesome until Episode Six? When it would start to pull everything together and take the series in a darker and more complex direction — some might call it “Whedonesque” — after the initial run of stand-alone shows?
Well, Episode Six aired on Friday, and you know what? It totally got awesome. I’m starting to think he may have something great there after all.
And also, it was really weird to see Helo and Romo Lampkin turn up in modern-day Los Angeles just after we’d left them on … whoops, sorry. Never mind, move along, nothing to see here.
