'Whattaya hear, Starbuck?'

"Nothin' but the rain, sir."
...

Well, it wasn't perfect, and it didn't answer all the questions, and it left some new mysteries. But it was awfully well done, and I have to say I'm better pleased by it than many many other series finales. And it brought our long suffering heroes to a place of peace on earth.

...

"Then get your gun and bring in the cat."

...

I will miss some of these characters. I will wonder what happened to them. And that's probably the best way to end a story, with your viewers/readers wanting more and actively engaged in imagining their futures or trying to figure out the meaning of what they just experienced. (And just why God doesn't like its name.)

...

"Aye-aye."

...

Today's pick: Battlestar Galactica, series finale. And in that vein, this song.

Say G'night, Starbuck.



Peace.
