Outstanding episode of an outstanding series
24 February 2013 | by (GA, USA) – See all my reviews

The other reviewer of this episode is clearly not someone who followed the series, nor did he understand what was happening.

Objects at Rest is the culmination and end of a 5 year journey. Friends are going separate ways. It brings to a close the story of one adventure as a group, and the new adventures that await each individual as they go forth in life.

Sheridan's recording to his son at the end of the episode is a lesson that if many people learned it would solve a lot of their individual problems as well as general life issues. It makes the point that change in life is always going to happen, is something to be embraced, and things you have lost are to be cherished for what they were.

To call this episode maudlin is to not understand what the series was about. It was a goodbye for fans who invested many hours watching this series.
