In which we imitate "This Recording" to make BSG that much more accessible and hip to "Losties", "Whedonites", and "Jerichoans?"

The mid-season break of Battlestar Galactica's Final Season, ended on a note.

A minor note.

It must be said that the off-key ending between the six to seven month hiatus was NOT disappointing nor could be savaged in any negative light given the original premise of the show itself. In point of fact, it was Jaw-dropping, for an EP like Ron Moore to anticipate this audience's expectations, and go ALL IN, oh so early.

It leaves so many questions, it leaves so many speculations, it leaves so many opportunities for further narratives (We shall wait and see whether this is sequel-ism for dollars-sake, or an artistic smoothing of the edges.)
beyond spin-off TV series.
In the last hours of the show, recently completed, and aired next January 2009, I beg that I'm not disappointed, only that my enthusiasm for the material has been vindicated. Not only in terms of plot and character, but for its mere aesthetic value, How fucking cool is this final tracking shot? :

That said, the new shows I'm looking forward to the most are Joss Whedon's "Dollhouse", Alan Ball's "True Blood", and while I despise a writer's foray into the supernatural, J.J. Abrams's "The Fringe" still looks promising.

My returning shows still hold up (for the most part):
Lost (if you abandoned it because season 2 dragged, you missed out. I skipped the last half of S1, all of S2, and caught up with recaps. The show has been on high octane since S3 and is astounding.)
Flight of the Conchords
Friday Night Lights
The Venture Brothers
