    Could never stand that show..

    Reminded me too much of the schlock show from the 1970's it was based on.

    Or as I like to call it "Mormons in Spaaaaaaaace".

    I watched two episodes and found it sort of depressing.

    I simply couldn't get around the fact the characters had the same names as the ones on the stupid show from the 70's.

    So the Cylons don't have a single eye that goes back and forth anymore? I'll bet that helps a lot when they try to aim their weapons on humans!

    These are earlier models from the first Cylon war. It is after the Caprica series, and covers Adama's days as a pilot on the almost brand new Galactica.

    It was meant to be depressing. Since it was a reboot of the original series, giving people different names would be absurd. It has about as much in common with the original show as The Dark Night Rises has with Adam West's Batman, or did you not watch that because the characters had the same names as they did in the series?

    I remember my Uncle Bill calling the original show "Battlescar Prophylactica"!
