What an unfair cliffhanger!
Sure, I was stupid enough to think that it was a four DAY miniseries instead of a four HOUR miniseries, but judging from the slowness of the SciFi website tonight, I don't think I'm the only one...
But even then, heck even WORSE, was they just end the thing with "Oh, by the way, Boomer's a fucking CYLON, see ya...". What the hell kind of a slap in the face.
So I'm all pumped waiting all day to see the third days episode, and instead there's some Stephen King show on. Sure, I like Stephen King, but I certainly didn't want to see any of his stuff tonight.
Instead, I head off to the SciFi web site to try and figure out what the hell's going on, and find that was it, it's over...
It was a great couple of episodes, and I'd be very happy to see a series based on the Galactica 2003 premise, even if I am a big fan of the original and feel that SciFi really fucked Richard Hatch (after he tried for years to get the series restarted, and then they just spit in his face on this one...), now that I see the new concept, I'd be just as happy with a Galactica 2003 series as I would with a new series based on Galactica 1978.
But I'm pissed off, angry, and feeling ill-used with this sudden shitty ending. A great ending for a single episode, but without the guarantee of a SciFi series starting up, it's really a shitty ending for a miniseries! A miniseries is supposed to have a conclusion, dammit. And I thought Galactica 1980 was a bad series! (Except the episode where Starbuck returns...)
As long as they start a REAL series out of Galactica 2003, then everything fine, no hard feelings. But if that never happens, then a big Fuck You to the people behind this. I'd have rather sat through a Dr. Zee gets gay with Boxey than left eternally hanging with that ending!
