Earlier tonight, one of my favorite television shows Battlestar Galactica came to an end.
Honestly, I was slightly disappointed by some parts of the finale.
Too little Helo, too much trying to make Starbuck be a hero, too much implying that "All Along the Watchtower" was written more than 150,000 years ago (I'd like to see a mini-series about Bob Dylan coming across the Cylon tune... or being a Cylon himself!)
However, there were moments I really loved too, like the moment when they all stuck their hands in the bath with Anders (ha, sounds even more interesting now!), Starbuck saying goodbye to Anders, Anders being a martyr, flashbacks to Roslin with normal-looking hair.
But while I wanted to say goodbye to BSG in a blog post, the person I'd really like to say goodbye to specifically is President Roslin. She was my favorite character on the show by far. She fought through the death of her family, a religious crisis, a rigged election, cancer and the loss of her hair, the loss of her aide (RIP Billy!), threats from Adar on Caprica, an arrest and slight revolt on Galactica and of course that awkward date with a former student, and she still made it to "Earth" in the end. Although the show is fictional, I still find it heartbreaking that she never got to live in that cabin with Adama. And on a side note, her death was totally similar to the 13th day of my Mexico trip.... I think that implies that the events of the show ARE true and that I am a descendent of Roslin!
So here on my blog, I'd like to officially say goodbye to one of my favorite TV characters ever.
Farewell great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandmother Laura Roslin!! E>
