Much deeper, more grittier, and intense than the original
Great series with a lot of suggestions. Saw the original when I was a kid and both stand on their own. I like the idea of Larson being involved - bridges the two.

This is the best remake of a 70's classic. THough the original was a campy "Bonanza" in outerspace -- loveable, fun, and good family viewing -- this remake is a great adult verstion with fantastic character development, tension, and storytelling. Unlike the original (episodic - loosely follwing the basic story line of the tragedy and seeking the lost colony) this is more of a continuing drama. Storylines continue through the run of the series, actions carry consequences, effects, and results that affect the characters and may manifest again later. A great addition to the viewing library. May not be suitable for younger children, get the 70's version for them. No dag gum daggit, dammit! ha ha.

EMOTIONALLY CHARGED SCI-FI
Many have said it, and I'll say it again... This is the best show on Television, of any genre. Hands down.
The opening scene where the human delegate shows up at the agreed upon meeting place, knowing that it has been 40 years since the end of the Cylon war and the Cylon's have never shown up, and when the door opens and the Cylon lumbers around the corner, the human's face drawn with shock... I knew, that this show was back and it was cool.
What makes Battlestar Gallactica a cut above the rest, is the upgraded Cylons, the dynamite weightlessness feel the soundtrack gives you when the fighter pilots fire their canons into deep space and the drum beats that accompany them, the incredible storylines that accompany a desperate and depleated human race as they scramble for hiding places from the newly refreshed and technically superior Cylon army... but more than anything... it's the human dramas that put this show over the top.
Ultimately, that is what Battlestar Gallactica is about. It's about the human issues, romance, power struggles, friendship, bravery, having a cigar, alcoholism, trusting each other, rebuilding a society and making decisions that keep you alive.
That is what makes Battlstar Gallactica the homerun show that it is. It's reliance on human issues is the heart and soul of the show. What makes us better than a race of robots? Emotions. Personalities. Love. Our nature to cherish life.
BATTLESTAR GALLACTICA is a smash. Edward James Olmos plays Cmdr. Adama who struggles between his human emotions and his military emotions. Mary McDonnell plays Laura Rosin, who is the next in line surviving politician and default President. Jamie Barber plays Cmdr. Adamas son Lee and top fighter pilot. The beautiful Katee Sackhoff plays the tomboy, tough as nails Lt. Kara Starbuck who puts herself out there, time after time, in order to prove herself.
The show is rich from all angles and the best on T.V. in a time when many currently running shows can wrongfully say the same thing.Read full review

Battle Star returns with a blast
I was hesistant about this series at first but I am so glad I gave it a chance. I was just a kid when the original aired and I fondly remembered parts of it. This is not you daddy's Battlestar it is far better. Kudos to the team that brought us this one.
