I have just spent the last several days downloading the mini-series and entire first season in one gigantic download. Why is it that I pay for cable again?

I don't think that they will kill the pegasus off like they did in the origional series, it gives them too many possibilites.

Has anyone else thought that it's really ironic that (imho) the best show on TV right now is a remake of prehaps one of the worsts shows to come out of the 70s?

One of the worst shows of the 70s?

When we were forced to put up with things like "Chico and the Man" & "Jonie Love Chacie"?

Heck IMHO it wasn't even the worse of the Sci-Fi shows when you consider the alternatives like "Buck Rogers" or "Logan's Run" (movie was decent the series was weak).

Now "Galactica 1980" - that was BAAAAAAD.

I though I'd hate this new show (a female Starbuck!??), but it had turned out to be far superior to the original. It's the one thing every week I look forward to watching on TV.

I thought I would hate it as well. I was pleasantly surprised on the quality of the miniseries and episodes since then have only gotten better.

Okay, lol, I'll grant you that my statement was a little overarching, but truth be told, the origional BSG is one of the few 70s era TV shows I've been exposed to.

Speaking of there was a Logans Run tv series? I actually liked that movie quite a bit. Was it really that bad.

Anyone here ever watch Space: 1999?

Space: 1999 was a cool show. I have a note book somewhere that has details of the all the buildings, ships, uniforms etc.

ETA: I use to have the Farrah Fawcett poster of her in Logans Run.

Yeah they would drive around in a solar powered car (really hokey looking) trying to find 'sanctuary' meanwhile they run into all kinds of other people/settlements while being chased by sandmen (basically the ending of the movie was ignored).

Almost like how the A-Team was always being chased by the military.

Bad..

Now that was a decent Sci-Fi show, As a kid I had a Space 1999 'laser gun' water pistol - it looked just like the ones on the show. Very cool nerd-toy.

I also though UFO was kinda cool (at least I remember the neat vehicles and the hot moon-girls).

I think they could have done a great job remaking the original. I was the perfect target demographic for the original, about 13 years old when BSG came on the air. I loved that show.

The new one is just not as good. Adama should command the fleet, there should be no female president. Boomer should be a real pilot, not a Cylon girl. Baltar should be the human face of the Cylons, and commanding the Cylons. Some of the ship names like "Colonial One" are dumb. In the original series the Cylons were not created by man, they were created by a now-extinct race (reptilian).

I haven't read all the threads in the previous thread, but does it seem like the series has turned into a soap opera? Previous episodes had some excitement to them (big robots with machine guns!) or intrigue (hey, that guys a cylon! who knew?) but now it's all this sort of touchy feely stuff. Starbuck misses Anderson (if that's the guy's name) and it makes her sad. What's his name, the guy who almost died in space, the Admiral's son, regrets not marrying, and he's feeling sad. WTF?

I don't think so. If anything, they're setting up for some good stuff later.

Hasn't reached Soap Opera status by a long shot yet, IMO.

I sure hope so. I really enjoyed the earlier episodes. I just feel like they lost momentum after they blew up the cylon ships that had been following them.

Yep, that's why we like it. We remember the original from our "early" years and like the new one because of the drama. I tried watching the old series and realized it was pretty lame, best left to memories.
