So say we all, and a bag of peanuts.  
It'll be the last voyage for Battlestar Galactica as it goes into it's fourth and final season. As saddening as this news is, I think this is a smart decision.

Ron Moore has stated that he had definite plans for a beginning, middle and end for the series, and we're finally reaching that destination point. While some shows have absolutely no pre-planning in regards to storyline developments *cough*LOST*cough*, BSG went through all the necessary places, since their entire goal was to find Earth and since they're almost there, it seems like a perfect place to end. Many shows go through as many seasons as they can until the networks announce they've been cut off, so they'll have to wrap up things only within a few episodes. But Ron Moore pretty much knew all along that this is where it would be concluded, and that's what I love about Battlestar Galactica. Great acting from an amazing cast, solid storylines, mysteries and character development, kickass musical score, and overall intelligent writing. It'll be sad to see it go, but as Ron Moore promises, it'll definitely go out with a BIG Bang, which I'm really looking forward to seeing since this show always brings in the jaw-dropping surprises.

I've been watching Supernatural due to withdrawals since there's nothing left to look forward to now that almost all my fandoms have had their finales. I just finished rewatching "All Hell Breaks Loose" again because I want to torture myself and found some things interesting:

While Sam had figured out Dean making the deal to safe his life, Sam had failed to mention to Dean what the Yellow-Eyed Demon had shown him in his dream. I mean, you'd think after all they've gone through that could've possibly be something worth mentioning, yeah? They shouldn't be keeping secrets from each other anymore, the exchange should've had Dean admitting to his selling his soul to resurrect his brother and Sam telling Dean what the YED had showed him that could explain his psychic ability. Though this leads a lot more burden for Sam now that he knows more than Dean on the subject, which could have more self-discovery for him in general, along with helping Dean get out from the deal-making. This leads me to think that the third season is going to be a personal journey for Sam. Not that the whole series isn't about the Winchester's journey, so whatever happens the burden will be shared together.

I liked that Bobby acted so fatherly towards Dean, scolding him yet comforting him at the same time, especially when calling him out on his self-loathing.
Dean: Dad brought me back, Bobby, I’m not even supposed to be here. At least this way something good can come out of it, y’know, it’s like my life can mean something.
Bobby: What? And it didn’t before? Have you got that low an opinion of yourself? Are you that screwed in the head?!
Seriously, I love Bobby. He's definitely the surogate father-figure for both Sam and Dean. I hope that both he and Ellen return next season and they all work together to fight against the Demon Army that YED had intentionally wanted to unleash. I also want Jo back, too. Now that the Roadhouse is no more (still sad and pissed about that decision, even if it raises the stakes of the danger they're in), I hope that they kind of team up with other hunters that are out there. Along with that, Dean and Sam are still fugitives and wanted by the police so that's another obstacle they have to deal with. But considering their issue is much bigger than getting in trouble with the law, they're surely get out from it.

Furthermore, I like the Samuel Colt continuation and connections. The gigantic Devil's Trap with the churches and railways connecting to each one, pinpointing and literally creating a pentagram. The gateway to Hell, and The Colt as the key to opening it. Dude, that's just freaking awesome. It makes sense, and I hope more is revealed in the next season.


Oh, and Koda Kumi's newest song/PV "FREAKY" is seriously HOT. Like, whoa.

Well I'm sad to hear that next season will be the last one, but I like that they have a plan . And it does make sense, since they know where Earth is.

I absolutely loved Bobby in that scene, that is exactly what I wanted Dean to hear. And I like Ellen too.

Exactly. The crew on Galactica had one mission, which was to find Earth. Now that they're almost there, ending it at the fourth season is not only smart but realistic. Sure, they could go on and on about the struggles especially if the ending isn't conclusive. But with a universe that BSG is, nothing will ever be satisfactory or conclusive. Which is what I love about the show in the first place.

Dean definitely needed to hear that. He needed to know that he was worth something and always had been, and I liked having Bobby say it to him at that moment.

Yeah, it's sad but at least we know now instead of it being announced mid-season like some of my shows, and the decision is being made by Ron Moore and Co. themselves instead of the network. Hell, Sci-Fi is also sad about losing their most high-rated original series. To me, that's a first since it's usually the other way around.

But now we'll be looking forward to an explosive season since it'll be the last. There's no doubt it'll be fantastic.

While I see the central idea of the show being the journey of the brothers together, I definitely expect next season to be slightly more about Sam than Dean. It is only fair, as this season was more Dean centric. This year was mostly focused around Dean as he tried to solve Sam's issue of what was happening the psychic abilities, while morning his father and questioning his existence after surviving the experience that should have killed him. Next season should be focused around Sam as he tries to save Dean from being sent to Hell (and he may need to understand more about his psychic abilities in order to do this), while trying to process the new and secret information about his mother and dealing with that fact that he is back from the dead.

If next season isn't more focused on Sam than this season had been, I'll be a little upset. There is still so much more explore! This season had so much Dean. And, don't get me wrong, I loved every second of it. But I definitely think it was more Dean heavy than Sam and I just want to see some of the same attention paid to Sam next year. *crosses fingers for the future*

Bobby is the man. I love him so much. And that scene with Dean will forever be amazing in my mind. He BETTER be around next season or else I'll cry.

So true. I love Dean, but next season should totally focus more on Sam. As you said there's so much else to be explored, especially now that they've gotten the biggest burden off of their shoulders out of the way.

Yeah, Bobby had better return. That scene was simply amazing, broke my heart yet made me love Bobby even more. And it also had me wanting to hug Dean, but that's a given.
Autumn: i'm sorry what was the question? {the ofpenelopeblack on June 3rd, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
I want Jo to come back too. :)

Yay for more Jo fans! I seriously want her to come back next season, even if it's just brief. I mean after the events of the finale it would be senseless to NOT have her return.
