Obviously Tighe was trying to tune into the Art Bell show

Well all right now. We have ourselves a finale. There was tension, discomfort, outright tragedy and so many unanswered questions. Whenever the intro -- my favorite opening in all of TV -- is scrapped altogether, you know it's serious. (Another sign of quality: Saul getting hit by a woman).

Are Tory and Anders cylons? (Hope so!) Did the cylons implant a tracking device in Tighe's head? (I'd stay drunk too!) Did Laura actually tell a female staffer to run a comb through her hair? (Bitchy!) Is Mark Sheppard's courtroom performance a little too Pacino-in-Scent of a Woman for you? (Yes! But really no worse than the prosecutor's Katie hands!)

And finally, if kamala extract gives the president hallucinations that are, in fact, loaded with clues for saving mankind, let's keep that prescription filled, OK? OK!

Oh, was there a sci-fi show on last night? All I saw was Battlestar Gavelactica

Yeah, a little too courtroom-centric. But there was enough foreboding of utter disaster -- they sent their fuel ship on a decoy route? they replaced their XO with an officer whose wife is a cylon? -- that it felt like the old Battlestar Galactica to me.

Also it's interesting that this is a finale to a season that started with Lee saving his father. Lee loves/resents/disappoints everyone. He's the ultimate in self-obsessed righteousness, a complete Baby Boomer caricature.
