Find Me On:
and Matchstick Men
I, too, am enjoying it. The only thing I don’t like is when they finally get to the art show part and barely show the art. Most of them are on screen for a few seconds and we see more of the judges faces than the art. Except for Miles whose art is everything he is doing on the show which is most clever.
That’s one of the reasons I like Miles on Top Art, he’s all “I’m here for the free food and art supplies.”
Yeah the symmetry of that final Jack scene was absolutely perfect.
I agree. For me , the main theme of BSG was the idea that if the two sides of conflict make the effort to learn about each other and embrace their differences (instead of one side assimilating into the other) then all will benefit both from the no war casualties but also what they can learn from the other side and use to make everyone better (this sounds like hippy dippy because I’m not very good at explaining this well). In essence, we benefit from being a greater community and appreciating what everyone is bringing to the table because one person/culture’s strengths balance out another’s weaknesses and vice versa. And I thought they had done that really well until the finale, when all off a sudden all the tech had to go which was essentially getting rid of the Cylon culture.
That “live together, die alone” theme was also central to Lost (and doc Jensen explains it beautifully) and the finale pulled it together really well. I’m not in love with the last 10 minutes/everybody goes to “heaven” bit (though I didn’t hate it, either) but I don’t feel like it is a betrayal of the ethos of the entire series.
