One of the greatest television programs of all time, Battlestar Galactica, ended on Friday. I decided on Saturday afternoon that I was going to dedicate a post to my favorite character, but I didn't get around to it until now. I think because I don't want it to be over. I'm not going to spoil the ending, because that's gotten me in trouble in the past, but I will say that even though the series has ended, it was a very satisfying ending. My main pet peeves about the show were addressed, and now I can safely say that I love pretty much everything Battlestar and always will.
My favorite part of BSG was watching Grace Park play Sharon/Number Eight/Boomer/Athena. She had to play at least two majorly different parts, and was technically playing thousands, in her role(s) as Sharon "Boomer" Valeri, Sharon "Athena" Agathon, and all the other incarnations of the Cylon known as Number Eight. The different Sharons could not be more different - the only thing they share is that they both betrayed their respective loved ones and societies to join forces with the enemy race. One is a killer, the other a mother, and they are both played with perfect precision by a truly unappreciated actor.
The Parent Trap, she's that good.
