Thrilling Yet Open-Ended Conclusion

The thrilling conclusion to Scalzi's serial "The Human Division" series nevertheless ends with a wide-open story still to be told. We finally get the biggest space battle yet, along with some harrowing scenes of danger facing our principle characters. If you've followed the series up till now, you will be satisfyingly rewarded, yet salivating for more. Lets hope the sequel, in whatever form it may take, will come out soon!

Go Down with the Ship! Season 1 Ends Here!

This one has almost everything you can hope for with regards to a finale. Bar fight! Ambushes! Escapes! Flirtations! Old friends! First Cousins! Unitards! Sacrifices! I enjoyed it, but half way through things get as intense as you could hope for.

Don't be fooled by the Final Episode tags - this is really more like a season finale, and there will be more. That said, I am disappointed with some of the revelations - or more accurately, the lack thereof. There's one Scalzi's been stringing along since the very first episode, and it's a bit frustrating to still know very little about it.

Dufris's narration, as usual, was excellent. He provided levity when necessary, and expertly helped ratchet up the tension.

All-in-all, it was a fun way to spend Tuesdays, so I'm glad the ride doesn't quite end here, and look forward to more adventures with the B-Team.
