This review is from: Battlestar Galactica - The Mini Series  [DVD]  (DVD)
I must admit I was highly sceptical when my sister told me how good this was and suggested that I watch it. Somehow I couldn't quite get the pictures of the old series (which I admit I loved as a child but find more than a bit naff now) out of my head.
I'm glad that I listened to her and gave this a chance. The modern series is very different. Granted there are changes that not everyone may like - Starbuck and Boomer being women etc. - but once you get past that and appreciate the updating of style, special effects, and the more human aspects of all characters - including the Ceylons - the twists and turns will have you hooked.
For those who loved the original series, love it still but don't compare it to this mini series - they are just too different. Like grape juice and Champagne, both have their place.
