OK, so the Battlestar Galactica season 3 finale: Meh. No, not even meh. Ugh.
First, Baltar's trial was full of squandered potential. Wasn't Caprica supposed to testify? Why did the lawyer formally known as Apollo take the stand instead of delivering his speech in a closing argument? What was the point of having Gaeta perjure himself? Seriously: The entire thing was bungled.
Second: The big reveal of the final five = Lame! And not so much making sense, tho it could be a big fake-out, I guess. I hope.
I love this show sooooo much. But the finale of S1 ("Holy Gods! Boomer did what to Adama?!") and S2 ("Holy Gods! That Baltar administration isn't going to work out so well!") were so much better.
Well, at least The Shield is back in a few weeks.
