    Ah, cut down just when it had returned to being good.

      It wasn't cut down. That was the natural conclusion!

        over another season instead of having to rush through it in a dozen or so episodes.

          It wasn't like they got canceled and had to rush through it. I just don't see how you support the narrative for another 20-22 episodes. The finale might have been a little rushed but I would say you could have done without the mutiny episodes and gone more for the cylon/human conflict.

          •  They needed the mutiny... (0+ / 0-)

            ...to further show that the humans and cylons weren't all that different.  

            This is why the righties loved the show at the beginning and hated it after season 2... there was nuance about how the world isn't black and white.  

            It there all throughout the show, but the righties could look past it as long as the military theme was central.

            The joke on them was that they thought they were the Adamas in the series, when the right-wing is really the primary model for the Brother Cavils.

            scifi let them know that they probably weren't going to fund BSG for another season? Or that they weren't going to fund both BSG AND Caprica?

            There were cancellation rumors well before they announced it was the final season.

            I think it unlikely that all of a sudden the makers said, I think season 4 will be the last. They certainly didn't go into season 3 saying there was only one more season after this.

            I thought the mutiny episodes were very compelling and were understandably because of time constraints cut off an episode or two before they needed to be.

            Just like finding Earth 2, the final battle, and what happened after were wrapped up too quickly, which is part why there will be at least another 30minutes to an hour on the DVD cut.
