I love the ending of Battlestar Galactica, but I know that puts me in the minority. I'll live with it. Many fans found the ending dissatisfying because they felt like it was a massive change from the what the show had always been about, and it turns out that James Callis, who played Gaius Baltar on the series, felt sort of the same way. While interviewing him for Austenland I asked about the ending of Battlestar, and his response was eloquent: "Ours is not to wonder why, ours is but to shoot and die."
Bonus! James was paired with Jane Seymour, who played Serina on the original Battlestar. One question I wish I had time to ask: what was it like being in Utah, Mormon home country, after spending so long on shows with deep Mormon roots?
