So yeah, I'm not sure what to say about that episode. I mean, it was amazing. Brilliant acting. Brilliant storytelling, and quite possibly the most beautiful score to ever come along for ANY TV show.

Initial thoughts:

1. Adama breaking down broke my little heart into a million pieces.
2. Roslin coming into Adama's quarters and sitting down next to him like a wife would do? LOVE!
3. Rolling the hard six? Also love.
4. Michael Hogan is fucking amazing.
5. I love that no one is safe on this show, I was really worried about the 3 in the airlock.
6. Tory's a fucking cun... er... bitch, but it tracks with her character progression this season, so I'm okay with it.
7. The Adama/Roslin hug in CIC! *swoon* (but, um, KISS THE GIRL YOU DAMN FOOL!!)
8. I cried at the happy "we've found earth scene". Yup, I'm a big ol' sap.
9. So... earth's a nuclear wasteland. Wish I could say I didn't see THAT one coming. Anyone else looking for some apes?
10. So, flist, we have 12 hours of this show left (since I hear we're getting a super long series finale), so where do we go from here?

Ooooh, I see an opportunity for a poll...

LOL, yeah. Apes...and a demolished Statue of Liberty in the background...perhaps even a guest appearance by Charlton Heston yelling "they blew it up!". ;-) hehehe

Anywho, I totally agree with all your points. Amazing episode!

And I have no clue what they should do next, so I went with the clicky buttons options. Wheee! XD I just found the last scene quite the irony! I'm just annoyed we have to wait so frakking long to find out what they end up doing.

Agree with all your comments. I would only add, I loved Starbuck's reaction to finding out Sam and Tyrol were Cylons. It only made Adama's scene better, because hers was so underplayed. I also loved Tyrol's look of relief. The whole sequence of having people find out was so well done by the writers and actors. Roslin and Baltar was also well done. (I found Baltar much more in character this week.)

Anyway, I'm glad Roslin made Apollo stay President, because he's hot in pin stripe.

I have to admit, EJO is normally not my cup of tea. But when he was in the flight suit, pointing the gun? Damn.

I cried, too. And, um, I may have been yelling, "KISS HER, YOU IDIOT!" at several points during the show. Including the previouslies.

I don't know if it's from Buffy but I have a "Where Do We Go From Here?" song stuck in my head.

Where do we go from here/now that all the of the children are growing up?/and how do we spend our lives/ if there's no one to lend us a hand?

I've rewatched the episode three times now and I still keep looking for the broken-off head of the Statue of Liberty. It is NYC. I'm sure of it.
