Good Swan Song For The Show,
This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: The Plan (Steelbook) [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
After reading all the negative comments for this, I wondered whether to buy this. Now I'm glad I did. It is up to the High Standard of this series and a powerful and poignant work.
The apocalypse is handled well and in true BSG style. Those who expect an explanation for everything will be disappointed, BSG never did that anyway and this swansong is no different.
The soundtrack by Bear is fantastic - as always - and the final theme at the end - a new mix of the UK series theme - haunts me even now.
There are extract scenes from the series yes, a lot of people seem to be bothered by this, I found them useful in placing what happened where in the story.
If you have not watched the series and don't intend to, you may find it a little confusing but just go with the flow and enjoy the tapestry, though you will be frustrated by the end as it stops at the end of Series Two.
If you intend to watch the series don't watch this, not yet. Watch the series, up to "Islanded in a Stream of Stars", watch this then the final three part episode "Daybreak".
