Welcome to part 2 of Flabbergasted's epic review of "Sometimes a Stupid Notion," the redemptive Battlestar Galactica novel.
Now, in general we don't touch Fanfic, and hyper-ambitious fanfic *novels* are right out for any number of reasons. Why are we covering this one? Because the ending of the RDM version of Galactica was so amazingly punch-you-in-the-face awful that it destroyed the entire series in retrospect, not just for me, but for at least a third of the people I've talked to about it.
An ending *THAT* bad - arguably "the worst ending in the history of television" as several people have convincingly argued - cries out for something or someone to try and fix it, to try and turn it into something that isn't just a slap in the face of the people who loved the show.
Something more than a betrayal. Since those who made the show honestly believe they made a good ending, they clearly aren't the ones to do it. Therefore, that leaves the fans...so in this one case we make an exception and review a fanfic novel.
Because it's good!
