BSG Finale Week Continues – Are We Ready to Let Go?


Ronald D. Moore is ready to let go of Battlestar Galactica. But are fans ready to say farewell to their beloved series?

At the Sci Fi Channel’s upfront presentation on Monday, RDM was steadfast that this was the right time for BSG to end. SciFi Wire quoted him as saying:

I was ready to let it go creatively. I knew that the show had entered the endgame, and I knew that we were in the third act. It was time to wrap up the story. I wasn’t emotionally ready to let it go, and I’m still not. It was a very important experience for me. I love it. I loved working on it. I loved the people I got to know. I loved the end product. I liked watching the show. I was a fan of the show. So it’s hard to know that there’s not more Galactica coming. But as a producer and as a writer, I’m very happy that we got to end it on our own terms.

As much as I’m going to miss BSG, I am pleased that they were able to give the series a proper ending, and weren’t forced to drag it out a few more seasons. Now it’s just a matter of waiting to see how the final two hours will play out this Friday night.

So how about you? Are you ready to let go of BSG?
