Series finale aired last night. It was a superb conclusion to the story arc, to my way of thinking. It answered some long-running questions definitively and left others open to the audience's interpretation. I especially liked the final scene. BSG's writers used elegantly powerful motifs and themes in the story and consistently invoked them judiciously without talking down to their audience.

Who knew that such a brilliant show could rise out of such inauspicious material as the original series, whose only stirring moments were generated by its bombastic opening musical score and Lorne Greene's rich voice doing the voice-over narration?
