Only 2 more days until the new and final episodes and I´m entering these final hours with very mixed feelings. I have never before cared so much about a TV show, never before been so engaged in every aspect of it and I can say that for a long time , probably nothing will meet the new standard Battlestar Galactica has set and I can´t imagine another show that could bring so much joy to my life.
It is all about the characters, not the (incredibly well done) special effects, it´s about the world that is created through these characters that teaches us something about ourselves, makes us root for the bad guys if there really are any and look at the basic aspects of life from a different angle. Religion, loyalty, faith, friendship, politics and family and the mechanics behind it, i will miss the discussions and speculations, the next unexpected plot twist.
I am very sad to see quality like that leaving the small screen and I am sad to let go of a set of characters that I have become very attached to, as well as the actors and producers and writers , who have shared this experience with us on almost personal levels throughout the years. It feels a little bit like letting go of part of your family as stupid as that sounds and although I am very glad there will be a final act, a definite end to the saga and although I CANNOT wait to see how it ends for all of them I am dreading this moment like nothing else at this time.
As a kind of goodbye and welcome to the final hours of BSG I decided to do a picspam and I decided to do a picspam about the human gestures of the past 4 seasons, the kissing, the touching, the holding and the hugging ( the hugging was always the best ! ) and the occasional making out ;D This way, I intended not only to have a more uplifting tribute to my favourite show but also to put a stress on what is essential in the Battlestar universe, the people.
