Below are links to all my extant writing about Battlestar Galactica. (As was the case with Lost, much of the writing I did about this show was done for my old dayjob at Wizard Magazine and has been lost to countless website revamps and ownership changes.) I hope you enjoy it!

    In retrospect, this is great: “…that now it’s about the end stages of this particular human civilization–that they’re all too far gone to make it work anymore.” I didn’t take it that way at the time simply because I’ve never seen such a thing depicted on TV; no matter how dark things got, I fully expected them to come through at the end and rebuild something approximating their old society, with maybe some cultural/technological borrowing from the Cylon allies. Or, if (as seemed increasingly likely the closer we got to the end) they were going to wind up being our distant ancestors, then I figured they’d be forced by circumstances to abandon nearly everything— crashing on Earth with only a few survivors, etc. Voluntarily giving up all your history and your collective identity, because you’ve judged them and found them unworkable, is much harder to accept in fiction, and clearly a lot of viewers were pissed about it… but, as you say, the series really had been building to that for a long time.
