With his classy English accent, James Callis can make almost anything make sense. But even Gaius Baltar himself is still confused over Ron Moore’s controversial Battlestar Galactica finale.

Ronald D. Moore’s reboot of Battlestar Galactica is one of the most acclaimed sci-fi series ever made, but the high-minded finale left some fans burned after the final fade to black. Moore aimed for the stars, trying to take a politically charged, smart action series and close it out with a spiritual ending that was just as polarizing as the Lost finale. And that’s saying something.

So what does Callis think about it all? He explained his take on the ending to Badass Digest, and compared Moore's explanation to what the series meant to him. Turns out he was as thrown as some of the fans by the final hour, which included [spoiler altert!] a reincarnated angel Starbuck and massive time jump into the modern day. It was gutsy, which fit the series' mission, but was definitely open-ended in a way that many fans didn't expect.

Check out the interview below, in which Callis tries his best to break it down:

What did you think of the final episode? Does Callis’ explanation do it justice?
