Default Battlestar Galactica

Any fans of the latest incarnation, I've only seen the first two seasons and I think it is the best show on tv. I am sad however that it will end with the fourth season.

not really a fan of the latest or the original. story line just didn't seem that interesting to me.

the only thing i liked about the BG universe are their ships. the galactica cruisers and the colonnial vipers; the cylon raider and base stars. those were awesome!

I saw the first half of the first season of the new show. I never got to see the rest, and I never regretted that. I liked what I saw, but not enough for me to actually want to see more. There are other great ways to spend my time.

I was a big fan of the original and also love the new one. The story is great and I cant wait for January to see how it all ends.

I prefer the new over the old one, it's a lot more gritty and down to earth than other sci-fi shows out there, especially Stargate

Have you watched the original lately? I had fond memories of it, myself, but when I rewatched it recently, it was so painfully cheesy that I laughed out loud several times. The new one is, IMHO, VASTLY superior as a serious drama, even if the other one is still fun to watch, if only for the mocking opportunities...

i've learned never to re-watch a lot of my favorite childhood shows. after getting burned several times, i prefer to remember them with the innocence i had when i first watched it.

some of the more memorable disappointments were:
- battlestar galactica
- megaforce
- MASK the cartoon
- willie wonka with gene wilder

Indeed, the new show is fantastic!

Me too, can't watch any old Speed Racer cartoons... I tried, but decided to leave the past as it was.

I'd never seen this. I just watched the mini and about half of season 1. Pretty good! I'm sold. Starbuck piloting the Cylon starfighter in the guts cockpit was a little shark jumpy, but not too alarming.

Two things:

#1: this news, that they're making a sequel to it or something now: http://www.darkhorizons.com/esmail-s...-not-a-reboot/

#2: Just seeing it pop up on Amazon Prime one day. So, accessibility!

But I've always meant to get around to it eventually.

I actually tried that show for a bunch of episodes, but could not get into it. There's only one Battlestar Galactica to me.

I loved the original Battlestar Galactica. I don't think anything since has captured the same feel of the series. I thought Brian Singer's ideas about bringing it back were interesting and sad they decided to go the "remake" route.

I just made to like the end of season 2... the Pegasus just showed up. I'm totally involved except for... eh, every city and alien planet just looks like Vancouver. Same woods, always rainy, etc..

It's like, c'mon, guys... take a flight to Morocco or something for a day or two.
