First, I want to apologize for not getting this up sooner. I kept editing this to oblivion and I still can’t find the right words for it but this will just have to do!
Secondly, some non-BSG stuff: I got past my writers block! I have a couple of topics to write about! Yay me I can be super blogger again! Okay, BSG stuff.
Wow, what a ride right?
I guess I should say this now, in case anyone has never read this, and I don’t want people finding my blog when they are first starting out on BSG and then be all like AWW DAMNIT…even though the shows been over for a while but hey I did it…but there will be spoilers here. I’m not holding back. I’m literally going to word vomit all over this blog about it. Because wow, what an ending. Well I guess I need to start from way back in Season 2.5 and go all the way to now because really I just kinda stopped blogging due to time constraints.
Basically what I’m going to do is write out my character analysis on the ones that really stood out to me, then go through the story itself. Hopefully be able to make it make some sense by the end of it all.
And no, I didn’t lie. I did cry at the end of it all. But we’ll save that juicy goodness until the end of the post.
Admiral William Adama: I got goosebumps just typing out his name. True and true until the end, The Admiral was everything that I thought he would be and the strongest character in this show. Edward James Olmos just absolutely captivated me, kept me interested, and I hung on his every word. While everything wasn’t handled with…grace…persay, he held his own, he held his ground and his beliefs. He stayed true to who he was, and didn’t budge. Honestly he is one of the most intricate, well written, amazingly acted characters I’ve seen. I enjoyed watching him and his reactions.
President Laura Roslin: I was incredibly skeptical of her at first. I didn’t like her much, the character itself I really just didn’t care for. But she did wind up growing on me, and her relationship with Admiral Adama is one that still makes me tear up. She turned out to be a powerful character in the end. When she gets angry she sends shivers up your spine. When she was dying…it was just heartbreaking. I actually did cry. I was surprised…I don’t generally get emotional towards TV Shows or movies, but I actually did cry when Madam President passed away. Even harder when Adama was talking to her up on on the hill where he was going to build her cabin.
Kara “Starbuck” Thrace: She is still one of my favorite characters. I was not thrilled with her ending. It was pretty much a cop-out. But her story was so intricate to the end all be all of the story that it was just amazing to me. I loved her relationship with Sam, and her relationship with Lee.
Lee “Apollo” Adama: Watching Lee grow up was really interesting and really captivating to watch. I really thought he was going to keep the chip on his shoulder about his father through the series. It can be argued he did, but I think he grew past it and respected his father at the end of it all. I thought him and Dee were a great couple, and if he could just keep his head in check when it came to Kara they probably would have made it. Also I’m sure Dee killing herself didn’t help at all. Which that wasn’t shocking to me that she did, it was shocking to me how it was portrayed.
Colonel Saul Tigh: I didn’t care much for the Colonel at first…Until the the landing on New Caprica I didn’t care much about him. From there his story just took off and was absolutely amazing to me. His story with Ellen (who I didn’t like at all while she was alive but I actually really liked her after she died and then came back…) just blew me away. I guess with all of the Final Five really. I really enjoyed the Final Five storyline.
Gaius Baltar: Started out being interesting…then got boring…then got interesting…then got annoying…and by the end I didn’t necessarily like him, but he didn’t annoy me as much. I just didn’t like his religious preachings all the time…it annoyed me for some reason.
Okay, I’m posting this as is so I can say I have something up. I’ll do another post later and add to this. Sorry about the horrible delay in this, I’m having issues trying to write the stuff up.
