I imagine the last 11 episodes will be profoundly depressing, since they are settling in on a nuclear-devastated Earth.
That said, the show has been profoundly interesting and I have become somewhat of a fan.
However, I would still like them to do some sort of tribute/sequel to the original series, perhaps as one of the original Sat and Sun night movies they have planned. A little Valentine to us fans of the original, which never had a proper conclusion, wouldn't hurt.
It wouldn't take anything away from this new series any more than Tin Man did from the original Wizard of Oz.
We will also have the new Caprica and more BSG movies from the current series, too...the best of both worlds.
Come on, ScFi Channel, make us all happpy! :)
