Old Battle Star Galactica was better than the new one


The new one has way too much drama and is not about the spaceships anymore. Anybody who likes the new one more should be imprisoned for life IMHO.

Uh, if I'm not mistaken, that clip isn't from the original BSG. It's from Galactica 1980.

As far as the Classic vs Current goes... 1) I've seen every episode of the first 2 seasons of the current BSG on Hulu (unable to view any more without upgrading to Hulu plus ) and 2) the new "Boomer" is a helluva lot easier on my eyes than the original one

I had to stop watching the new BSG, when I finally realized that I not only didn't like any of the characters, I wanted to reach through the screen and visit physical violence on some of them. The only character I ever liked on that show, was Tigh, during that short stretch in the first season, when he was sober.

I have to admit, it took the new series a while to grow on me, and I still haven't seen some of the episodes from the middle of season 1. The ending also annoyed my to no end (I won't spoil it).

There were enough space battles to keep me interested, though (I loved the episode with 'Scar'), and they did much better with 'space physics' than the original, by far. (I do admit, though, I miss the 'turbo' of the original Vipers.) They have a lot of the BSG paraphernalia here at the Sci Fi Museum.

Both were good, but the original will hold a higher place in my mind just because I saw it first as a kid.

I loved the new BSG. I don't know how I missed it but I missed the beginning and didn't want to get into it partway through. More recently I noticed it on netflix so I watched it that way, usually 3 or 4 episodes a week. There were annoying things about the series but I liked most of it. I wanted more about the technology but at the end it was reasonably satisfying.

People have recommended that I watch Farscape so I'm 3/4 through it. I'll try Lex next, then I'm thinking about going back to the original BSG or Enterprise.

I've seen every episode from Season 1- which I think was the entire series run- on Hulu after others commented on here a few months back. Highly entertaining.

'Enterprise' was the only one of Gene Roddenberry's creations that I've managed to watch the entire series for free online. A show I'd like to see more of is 'Andromeda'.

You could probably skip FS: PK Wars...although it did basically wrap things up, it tried to give better-late-than-never FS fans a synopsis of what the characters were about in a few hours. Not possible. It reminded me of Dune the movie. Really couldn't do justice in two or even three hours. That said, FS was like Firefly. Both were fantastic sci-fi series that got chopped due to budget-versus-audience ratings. Maybe if they had added zombies...

I remember when the original BG was about to be released. I was so jacked up I bought a brand new 25" console Curtis Mathis TV. At that time in our new marriage, it was our most expensive purchase. We watched alot of sci-fi from that era!
