Battlestar Galactica Jumps To An End
Brittany – Associate Staff Writer
We are coming to the end of what have been for me, the greatest four seasons of my television viewing career. Battlestar Galactica, though snubbed by the Emmys (for shame) was the most critically acclaimed television show on the air and will easily go down as one of the most relevant TV shows in television history. The secret to making a show great the way BSG is, is by having a definitive beginning, middle, and end with little straying from core concepts. (Hello, Heroes writers? I’m looking at you.) Of course, not every episode can be great, as proven by the six or seven (out of 80) episodes that have little to do with anything. A solid shock factor – as in ‘I can’t believe they just did that!’ – is also necessary. How many of us knew that the show was going to be different as soon as Six snapped an infant’s neck?
