Now *that* is how to end a season

After an aborted taping this weekend, msmemory and I finally got to the very end of the season cliffhanger for Battlestar Galactica last night. My opinion that this is the best show on TV just continues to solidify. The previous season's closer, while startling, wasn't a total surprise. But this time, they managed to completely knock me backwards, with an ending that I didn't see coming at all. In the span of 15 minutes, the story has moved pretty seriously into "this isn't your father's Galactica" territory. It looks like next season is going to be quite different in plot, tone and characterization than anything before.

I keep expecting the other shoe to drop, and Sci-Fi to do something to foul the series up. But so far, it's just getting better...
