Movie Musings Monday: Well, Kinda

While I did watch a movie this weekend, today's Movie Monday post is all about last night's TV series and season enders for Rome and Battlestar Galactica. So, WARNING SPOILERS AHEAD!!! *ahem*

Last night's episode of Rome was the last episode of the series. This is the series that finally made cheap-ass me order HBO, which I will be cancelling now that Rome is over. Rome had everything - action, plot twists, intrigue, compelling characters, and beautiful settings. As per my usual, I was too wrapped up in the characters and felt it was rather a let down that Vorenus died after a small skirmish in Egypt. He was stranded on a deserted island last season and lived, rather crappy way to end a character line. I would have been much more torn up if Titus Pullo was killed, though.

OMG! Last night's season finale of Battlestar Galactica is the most amazing episode in the series. Baltar found not guilty, four newly revealed cylons, and Starbuck's back! I was surprised that the usual theme song and sneak peeks weren't shown before this episode. After seeing the episode, I'm glad no revealing previews were given. After Starbuck's return, I tossed my hands in the air and declared this to have been the best episode ever. Almost softened the blow that there will be no new Battlestar Galactica episodes until 2008.

Nine months with no BSG and no new Rome episodes ever; what a sad night.
