I read, write, code, and knit.

What is this?! this?

What is...this?

(Spoilers ahead. If you haven't seen Battlestar Galatica's season finale yet, don't read this.)

"One year later."

One year later?!

I realise that I haven't made many blog posts about Galatica, but that's been because I have just been so overwhelmed after each episode that I didn't want to blog. (Or I was lazy, take your pick). But this was the season 2 finale, I must say, I did not see that coming.

Wow. I didn't want Baltar to become president any more than the next person, but I honestly started to yell at the TV when Roslin, Tigh, and Dualla fixed the election! As much as I don't want Baltar to win, what they did was wrong.

But then...they skipped to one year later! And my reaction was, what is this?! Because that's not what I expected at all--maybe from a soap opera, but not from Galatica! I think I'm still in shock.

And then the cliffhanger. Wow. What happened to Brother Cavil's reprieve?! And Starbuck...all the crew split up....

Now I have to wait until October.

Anyone with a time machine, please stand up.
