Battlestar Galactica old vs. new. What are your likes and dislikes of both? Lasers or bullets, which did you like best? Gender changes, what did you think? Metal or flesh, which Cylons did you like the best? Have fun and enjoy your day.

  1. Haven’t seen the new series. I tried watching Caprica. It was okay. The original series was pretty cool. It was around that time that TV producers started getting the budgets needed to make a quality science fiction series.

    I’m also reminded of the abhorrent Galactica 1980. That series… just barf. That creepy “Dr. Zee” kid. Well, the target audience was kids from 6 – 13. But Dr. Zee… he was the Scrappy Doo of science fiction. Nearly killed the genre. For that matter, adding kids and babies harms and even kills franchises more often than not. Two words: “Phantom Menace.”

  2. Could never get into BSG, I liked firefly better.

    I did not watch the new one when it was on. But I had some bad days with my back so I kicked back and watched it on Netflix, then watch Caprica, then the old one , then the 1980 one. I agree that the 1980 one could of been done a lot better. I watched a little bit of the very new one, that came out in Feb., on you tube this morning. It looked like it might be good. As for Firefly I have not got into it yet, but it may be set aside for one of my down in the back days.

  4. You should watch firely then serenity. Most of my favorite shows have been one season or ver few season wonders though. Jon Doe, Dresden Files, Firefly, Legend of the Seeker. Although some old shows are good still, I have gone back to one show that brings back memories and laughs from the cheeziness, the Hercules with Kevin Sorbo.

  5. I have only read the original BSG book. So many people I know refused to watch the gender-flipped one that i didn’t get a chance to give it a go. It seemed like a metaphor for clone rights issues from the trailers I glimpsed. . . I’ve been going with the idea that advertisers don’t want to spend the money to write high-quality commercials that would actually CONVINCE intelligent, self-directing (non-sheep) consumers to buy things, and so don’t want to sponsor shows that appeal less to less intelligent viewers.

    So anyone that has all their favorite shows disappear? Feel complimented. Ad agencies think you can think.
