Only problem is a personal one - found myself drawing parallels with the 2000's version, e.g. I could not look at Boomer in quite the same way, or indeed Starbuck! SPOILER ALERT - Cylons origin is different (conforms to typical 70's sci-fi scenario) and a story of clones has "series" of "types" of clone, just as the modern BG has "series" of Cylon "skinjobs". This tended to distract me from the plot, as did the voice of one of my favourite actors Patrick McNee, which is inevitable, given that he died last month.
SUMMARY - a great series of its time, and worthy of the expensive re-launch. I love both, but thankful that Boxy did not re-appear in the latter!
It is quiet entertaining, but riddled with errors be they in the "science", plots or special effects - unnoticed to a large degree in the 1980s thanks to being mesmerized by the show. On a 40 inch LCD screen, you can see the wires holding up the Galactica - something that would have been impossible on an old style 20 inch CRT television.
The majesty of the show remains the "special effects" - though dated and flawed by modern standards, seeing the Galactica grace the TV screen still stirs the emotion of hope like it did aeons ago. Throw is the stalwart Adama, the hapless Boltar and the moronic Cylons and magic returns to television.
5 stars on the basis of the amount of entertainment per pound sterling.
Any now I own it on DVD now, another classic series to add to my collection.
The 1st DVD is basically the movie all over again.
The remainder is the series I enjoyed back in the late 1970s.
Some of the ideas and plots are very dated but overall I was entertained by the space battles, the cylons and the interaction between the the main characters.
Lorne Greene is not as bad as I remember and there is a good flow in each episode.
This science fiction TV is far superior to modern day stuff such as Roswell.
I enjoyed it.
fiction is all about. Science Fiction has to be believeable or it isn't sound. after Jules Vern was locked up in a mental home
because he forecast that Man would FLY (aeroplanes) travel under the water (Submarines) and go to the moon (Rockets).
I believe that Science Fiction now can be fact in the future. I won't hazard a guess as to how long, but maybe someday.
