Battlestar Galactica Season 4.5 - It's almost over.

This is a brief posting as the season is only halfway through and I'm waiting for the end to write anything on the show but this show is really storming towards its finale. Save one minor episode (A Disquiet That Follows The Soul) which was more quiet than bad (but could have lost a few minutes and had a bit more focus from the mid-point onwards to be honest), this show is storming towards its finale, with great atmosphere and both human and story moments (best human moment, Starbuck finding her own dead body, best story moment, Zarek massacring the entire civilian government, as one review said, someone show this to Obama). You also do get a sense of it going somewhere specific at great urgency, that no-one is safe and anything can happen, as people are getting knocked off every week, especially the characters who would normally be safe on any normal show. So many shows hove slowly collapsed towards a conclusion (I never made it to the end of The Soprano's and The Wire final season had an epilogue feel) so its good to see a show with five or six episodes left still feeling vital.

In just over a month it'll be all over. Which is horrible news, even though I want to see how it all ends.
