I admit it. I was a fan of the original Battlestar Galactica, at least for the first season. Sure, it wasn’t the greatest show ever made, but the “rag tag fugitive fleet” searching for the lost tribe on a shining planet known as Earth was good for a few episodes. (Of course, I liked Space:1999, too. But after trying to watch a couple of old episodes a while back, I realize that I must have been on severe drugs.)
As any good geek knows by now, there’s a new Battlestar Galactica mini-series set to show up on SciFi Monday night. There was a special premiere in L.A. on Tuesday. I’ll give it a chance, I suppose, but how do you do Starbuck without Dirk Benedict? Or Adama without Lorne Greene? Or Boxey without throwing up?
Whoa! That ain’t how I remember Cylons…
Hmm… hot babe… skin-tight suit… fembot… named “Number Six”… What an original concept!
