Roslin & Adama, Sittin In A Tree...

EW.com has got a brief interview up with my favorite not-couple in a frakkin' universe, Mary McDonnell and Edward James Olmos, who play, President Laura Roslin and Admiral William Adama, respectively, on Battlestar Galactica, about their takes on the finale.

And if I didn't think I could love McDonnell any more before reading this... man was I wrong; I am so head-over-heels for this fine lady.

And I love that the interviewer asks the both of them if they'd like to see Roslin and Adam's relationship consummated.

And I love (yeah, I'm just filled with love today) this idea of Olmos' about how the show should end:

"I've come up with story ideas. I personally — this is not [from] any of the writers, but my thing — I wanted to come into [the present day], find Earth, cruise on top of it, see it for what it is, and as we're coming down to it, we're blown up, we're nuked. And then [someone says to] the President of the United States, which is [George W.] Bush, ''They've been taken care of. Thank God you saved the world again.'' And you turn, and you see who told him that, and it's one of the Cylons. [Laughs]"

There's also a somewhat longer chat with showrunner Ronald Moore. His sneaky not-answer to the question on everbody's lips:

"EW: There's an implication, certainly, that if someone we thought dead has reappeared — and if Starbuck's supposed to have this grand destiny — that she would be the final Cylon.

RM: There is certainly that implication. [Laughs]"
