BSG Finale & Random Thing #4

Watched the BSG finale last night with DH. Other than finding the heavy handed moralizing annoying, the 'tribute' to the old show's theme song sappy, too many flashbacks (just had to go 2 hrs for a "proper" finale, so let's film some flashback filler), and a mild case of wtf with Starbuck, I enjoyed it.

Now here's the question I bet you're all been wondering about: what season passes are on Dawno's TiVo? Even if you're not, I'm posting them. It's Random Thing #4 (at this rate I'll get to #50 some time in 2014)

ETA: 30 Rock
Bones
BSG
Castle
CSI (only the original one though)
ETA: Chuck (thanks for the reminder, Alby)
Dollhouse
Eureka
Heroes
House
Lie to Me
Lost
Mad Men
Monk
My Name is Earl
NCIS
NUMB3RS
Psyche
Reaper
Trust Me

Things I watch online because they're not TiVo'd for one or another reason

The Daily Show with Jon Stewart
Damages
Raising the Bar
Smallville

Lots of speculative or science oriented shows with some police-type procedurals thrown in and a couple lawyer dramas. Did I ever mention that until I realized I'd never "get" the math, I wanted to be a scientist? I didn't care what type, but from about 3rd grade I wanted to do something that entailed lab coats and beakers or better yet, a space suit. Then in college I thought about law. Although I didn't end up in either, at least I work in tech now. I may not design or program the stuff, but I do get to see lots of cool tech in action every day and use a lot of it, too.

Oh man, I loved the BSG finale. I was only WTF about Starbuck for a few minutes, but it made sense. I don't want to say anything more for someone who might have recorded it and not seen it yet...but think Gandalf or Sheridan from Babylon 5...

The flashbacks were a little heavy, true, but otherwise it worked for me.

Yeah, your pt. about Starbuck does make sense - I guess the wtf was the suddenness of it, but I did know it was inevitable.

I always have a hard time fully enjoying the finale of a show I really like. When ST:TNG and DS9 finished I was crabby for weeks.

Now I really love the finales when I watch them again (every now and then I just do a DVD multi-day marathon of ST, Buffy & Angel)- I'm sure I'll feel the same someday about BSG.

Yikes! How could I have forgotten Chuck!

Good list, Alby!
