OK, that ending. RDM and co must be doing some seriously bad crack. And Starbuck. Quelle surprise...

However, the highlight for me was Tigh's little speech to Sam, Chief and Tori:

"My name is Saul Tigh. I am an officer in the Colonial Fleet. Whatever else I am, whatever else it means, that's the man I want to be and if I die today, that's the man I'll be"

Reminds of all the reasons I love Tigh!

Still wondering how they're going to explain those 4 being Cylons, not if Tigh fought in the first Cylon War. That said, I can't help but note that all of them had been on New Caprica. Gah. When does next season start again?

I'm hoping that they're not cylons. I know Tigh was held by the cylons for a while on New Caprica..were the others?? I'm hoping it's some kind of brain-washing or something.

Brainwashing would be more consistent with what we've seen on the programme so far about timelines and the Cylon evolution (back to Tigh serving in the Cylon War) but those four plus Starbuck would make up the final five Cylons. I don't recall the other three spending time in Cylon detention but it might have happened off screen.

Well, if you want a more or less definitive answer on the subject from RDM, check out this interview

I understand that we have to wait until sometime in 2008. Grumble.

See, I said they did some serious drugs for that finale...

Oh yeah. RDM must have been seriously off his head at the time!

The highest factor of crack is that bloody song. hello, er, earth song over the end bit? Just... no. I'd have been quite happy if it was just the musical phrase, since they'd played it sufficietly twangy to be something Colonies-esque, but ... no. BAD RDM.

Also, with person up there who poined out that Tigh fought int he first cylon war. back when they looked like toasters.

Something makes me think their not actually cylons..besides..apart from the Adamas, every other major person almost has been a cylon or collaborator, and they cant seriously be giving the message that the human race sucks, it takes a bunch of cylons to save you from the other cylons..
Is a bit wierd though, especially Starbuck..like wft?
They better bloody find earth though when the series ends, and it better not be 1980 all over again!!

Any idea what the song is called btw?

It's a heavily modified version of Jimi Hendrix's All Along The Watchtower!

If they are Cylons, which I hope they are not, there will be more to the story than them merely being like the other humanoid ones. Otherwise, it just doesn't make sense. Not to mention, we now have two hybrid babies.

Well, if you want some answers from RDM on all that, check out this interview

I can't help thinking that maybe the original humans went to Earth, and all the Galacticans are hybrid cylons, so for all their thinking that they're following their predecessors, the end result might be something like 'Full Circle' in Dr Who, where they can't go to Earth because 'they' never went there originally.

Now that would be a Hell of development...

Incidentally, have we been introduced?
