And based on how many people got killed over the last few episodes we can see how much it cost to add Sorvino to the cast.

I'm amazed the Espheni manage to conquer any planets because their technology is laughable. Even the supermechs lack basic human tech like thermal imaging to spot enemies and forget the backup camera or sensors for when someone is behind them.

The Beamers for some reason have an easily opened hatch that goes nowhere and is only large enough for a human to fit through. That's not very practical. Real screw up from the Skitter Design team there. As is the build quality. Their explosives vaporize the entire ship but only put a tiny hole in structurally unsound rubble.

How they figure they can fight the Super Big Bad they keep hinting about with their terrible space tech, when they can't even defeat a bunch of hobos with old guns is beyond me. Worst invaders ever.

I really hope the final season is on the moon. At least they can save money on sets and put it all towards the Arm the Espheni Fund so there can be a proper showdown. You know, like Moonraker.

Is that right? She might look better with glamour make up off set, but she looks old and "used" on the show.

I'd look like Sean Bean in LOTR, kicking ass and chicks digging every single minute of it. Probably have a sword or maybe some kind of electronic sword. I'd be sweaty but not too sweaty. I'd eviscerate the Espheni while doing crossword puzzles and looking bored. [crowd roars]


Whoa. That didn't last long, I don't know what came over me. Sorry about that. HER just told me to take out the trash.

So is Cochise's taser a new thing or did the writers watch SG-1 before making this week's episode?

If they did I wish Cochise had zatted them two more times!

The first half of the automatic weapons firefight seemed as if both sides were firing an s-load of blanks.

When I first heard someone say, "Cochise", I thought they said, "goat cheese".

Two would seem to be two too many to me too.

I doubt the final season will be on the moon, but the final episodes may be. I somehow doubt that they will have the trip take the nominal 3 days to get to the moon that a rocket with current technology takes.

Yeah, my DVR split it into 2 episodes called Season Finale Part 1 & 2 .. did not make much sense to me, why not just have a simple 2 hour finale .. ?? I can't remember if this is the way they have done it in the past ..

That is the way I remember they have done it in the past with "2 hour" episodes.

Lexi sure freed that tree. I would guess that made her a little suspicious there. I'm glad at least some of the wool has been pulled back. I doubt she'll survive the end of the season - just too powerful.

Because it is two, one hour episodes. They have done this before but not always. It is up to the network how they air them. This happens with other shows too. It is nothing new.

Yes, I've seen it done before, it's not the first TV series I've ever watched ..

It just does not make any sense to me if they are aired back to back on the same night .. why not just do "The exciting, mind bending 2 Hour Season Finale .." ??

Probably something to do with syndication rights where they air one episode every weeknight, or something along those lines. By the time it's finished, this series will have enough episodes to bring a fair price in syndication so they're just planning ahead.

Or the sale of single episodes VIA VOD ..

"Obviously" she'll have to go on the spaceship. She'll sacrifice herself to make sure Tom and Ben get back to Earth.

With Lexi's powers they won't have to make a ridiculous trip to the moon.

Yeah I don't know why all the drama with the ship and stuff, Lexi could just go around and wiping out the Espheni with her mind, no risky trips to the moon, and when she's powerful enough destroy the moon thingy from Earth

Exactly, she'll just do a "Ruth point to the bleachers" and zap it out of existence, end of series.

If the show had gotten cancelled at the end of this season, I'd rather have had her zap all the humans out of existence. It would have gone well with the overall lack of progress we've seen over the past four seasons. "Humans are extinct. The aliens won. The end."

It was going that way, she would wipe humanity and convert them all to half aliens until the overlords decided to kill her, big mistake..
