Rod Serling did it better… but Battlestar Galactica still hot

SPOILER ALERT… don’t read this if you haven’t seen the final episode for 2008!

BSG fans no doubt delighted at the 2008 season finale where all sorts of insane tensions mount between humans and Cylons.

And Xena (oops, I mean Cylon number Three), that ever-enchanting toaster, offers an innocent civilian up to death before a truce is made between humans and Cylons.

Interesting that the truce isn’t achieved by brute force but by human and Cylon goodwill, along with President Apollo’s diplomacy.

All round great job… kudos to all concerned in the production.

Except for one thing… the final scene where Earth is trashed? Rod Serling did it way better.

If you don’t believe me, just check out the episode “Time Enough at Last.”
