So the grand finale of the show is a handful of white guys, mostly old, looking at the "Natives" and joking about breeding with them. And again, when the decision is made to abandon their physical culture, technology, and displace the current inhabitants of ReallyEarthThisTime, it's still a mostly male planning-group. Yes, tell me again how this show is arguably non-racist, non-misogynistic, or non-ageist.

Oh, and as to the interminable denouement? Fuck it. It's a litany of the bad choices everyone made before the apocalypse, and it's not explanatory, just embarrassing -- for the characters, the actors, and the creators.

I'm honestly trying to come up with my usual post-BSG-I-actually-watched attempt-at-comedy post, but nothin' doin'. The thing fucking makes fun of itself, and what little isn't second-to-second self-parody is just so infuriating as film making and politics that I can't seem to bring myself to engage with it in any mode but angry disdain.

As it actually ends, the one ray of hope is that given the hominids we saw, they're SO FAR BEFORE the agricultural revolution that they obviously all die out within a decade or two, century at most, and the non-invading hominids actually get their chance, rather than being replaced by obnoxious space-perverts.

OK ACTUAL ENDING IS AN ANTI-ROBOT MONTAGE!

ANTI-ROBOT MONTAGE!

Viagra: Because when you think BSG, you think old-people sex, and when you think old-people sex, think Viagra!
KFC: Deep-fried, just like the inhabitants of Caprica.

Lesbian Sex
Human Transmutation Experimentation
Summaries of Recaps of Flashbacks

Given the commercial they were running in their sponsor's spot (two women talking about their hot meat sandwiches), the first is kind of funny.

Given that Quiznos's entire marketing strategy is "we run hacked up chunks of meat through a horrifying machine", the second is just distressing.

The last is just an apt commentary on the structure of Razor; set in the season before last (the exact spot in chronology only ascertainable with a good timeline or concordance), it's composed mostly of flashbacks to events contemporaneous with the first season (with some flashbacks to 40-odd years ago), and contains callbacks to the original series (helloooo 1978-vintage Cylons, Cylon Ships, and Cylon Ship Crew Complements) and bat-about-the-head foreshadowing for the end of this series.
