justice4all72, it's really a matter of opinion about how the series ends. Even though I might have wished for a little more, perhaps something a little 'bigger' shall we say, I didn't mind it. I was satisfied. Don't let people discourage you enough that you don't end up watching it at all. I don't think you would be better off skipping it. Decide for yourself.
I loved the ending. It was the perfect blend of all elements that made BSG great, while maintaining the mythos set-up in the original. You may expect something else but the end is truly in staying with the series. Problem with anything like this is the huge expectation - people are bound to be let down because you can't please everyone.
