what did you think about the final ep anyway? seemed pretty stupid.. steal douglas adams idea (though it was a joke of course in one of the hitchhikers guide books) about how humans evolved, then solve problems the plot has with religion... zzzz
It was pretty weak. The biggest problem, to me, is that the clear implication of the last episode is the planet they wind up on is our Earth. Yet, they identified the earlier, nuked "Earth" as "Earth" by the star patterns they discovered in the Tomb of Athena--patterns which are, of course, taken from the perspective of our Earth.
In order to reconcile this discrepancy, you'd have to accept that there were two nearly identical, habitable planets in completely different places in the galaxy that somehow had precisely the same pattern of stars visible from its surface. That just seems completely implausible, and because no effort was made to explain how it could be, I can only assume it was an oversight; a pretty egregious one at that. As a whole, the last batch of ten episodes felt rushed and poorly thought out. I'd have rather they took their time and wrote something really interesting, or at least consistent. Oh well, at least it didn't end on a cliffhanger or some such shit because of budget issues.
