I still don't feel like it's safe to talk about the series finale. I think I won't have fully processed it for another week.

For now, I will only say that Rosie and I cried so hard, we needed a box of tissues near us at all times.

As much as I love the show and still love it for the ending (I think), I'm pretty sure BSG broke my heart like no other television show ever has. Not even the Assassination of Cordelia Chase hurt me this bad (although it's close).

That said, when you come to the end of a show you've poured so much energy and emotion into, I don't know if having a broken heart is a good thing. Maybe I will know more about how I feel after it's not so darn raw. Rosie and I only saw it yesterday...

thepresidentrix, maybe you understand. :)

Right there with you. Except for the still loving it part, because I'm mostly just bitter at this point, and totally unwilling to even try and accept what happened. I was mostly hacked off about Cordy and what happened to her, but I feel like BSG just totally broke my heart. I actually cried, and not in a "that was so beautiful and sad" way. More of a "I can't believe that's really how they're going to end it" way. I felt almost used in some weird way. And maybe that's the problem, because I did almost feel like I had a relationship with the show.

Thanks for not spoiling it for me Ellen, as the finale is broadcast here tomorrow night. I'll make sure that I have some tissues right beside me as I watch!

I will unlock to you my entry on the subject. I kept it locked because I thought you might only find it the more upsetting. But if you are looking for some commiseration... it is entirely possible that we got broken at the heart by some of the same things. (And it's not a comprehensive comment or review, really just a sobfest).

I'm assuming that you mostly didn't like it? I thought it was okay. Very good in some aspects, but down right stupid and unbelievable in others. I can understand why a lot of people were upset. What I can't understand is why there are so many who are saying it was the Best Ending Ever. They must have either -

a) not watched a lot of really good TV shows
or
b) have had really low expectations going in

Makes you wonder.

I know what you mean. It hurt me a lot. This has affected me more than any show ever has (yes, even Angel and the Cordy debacle). I feel like I've lost a friend or something. Will do a re-watch again to see how I feel about it after some time has passed, but I don't think I'll be able to handle that for a while.
