In just about any other show the entire Zarek/Gaeta coup d'etat plot would have been needlessly dragged out for at least four to six episodes. Here's it's treated with a breathtaking economy of storytelling that effectively highlights central concerns and reinforces major underpinnings of the overarching plot and the importance of certain characters to it.
The whole series has been efficiently told, from the mini-series through to what will undoubtly be one hell of an ending. The only real bit of padding occured during the aborted settlement of New Caprica, which I feel could have been wound up an episode or two earlier.
Am I alone in thinking that the little R&D indents at the end might be more significant than they initially appear. This week's was based on the assination of Ceaser, and what was the assassination of Julius Ceaser, if not a failled coup against the rule of the Caeser Clan, that lead over a century of rule by the original Mafia that particular family.

OK, so now we know how the Final Five ended up amongst the Colonials. I am once again in awe of the writing talent of Ronald D. Moore and his team.

And, as is par for the course for this show, each new revelation just opens the door on yet more layers of questions and speculation.

Wonderful, wonderful series - to have managed to successfully sustain this level of sustained quality over its run has been a joy to behold.

So, anyone else worried that Gauis Baltar and his Holy Jumpers is now involved in an Arms Race with the Mafia like Sons of Aries. This will not end well.

Also, if I were Baltar, I would keep a very close eye on that Paula woman.

I'm now halfway through Series 4. Rather depressing in places, I have to agree.

And now I've reached the end of Series 4. Tried to download the next episode from I Tunes, but apparently I have the wrong kind of Mac.

I tell you what, it's very funny to watch all the people saying 'best show on TV' suddenly stopped in their tracks when they discover it's just another Shaggy God story.

Arthur: We've got to encourage them to evolve, Ford! Can you imagine what a world is going to be like that descends from those cretins over there?

Ford: We don't have to imagine. Let's face it, we already know what it's like. We've seen it, there's no escape!

Arthur: Did you tell them what we discovered?

Ford: Slartibartfast's signature on the glacier? No, what's the point? Why should they listen? What's it to them that this place happens to be called the Earth?

Arthur: And that it happens to be my original home.

Ford: But you won't even be born for nearly two million years, so they're likely to feel that it's not a lot of your business. I mean, face up to it Arthur, those Zeebs over there are your ancestors, not these cave men. Put the scrabble away, it won't save the human race because Mr. Ugg here is not destined to be the human race. The human race is currently sitting around that rock over there making documentaries about themselves.
