good but not quite the depth of the original
on 19 January 2014
I actually enjoyed this quite a bit. However, you can see that much less effort was spent on this prequel to Battlestar Galactica than on the original. It all appears a little contrived, the graphics are good but appear somewhat cartoon-like. The acting is good and the story interesting. It was just starting to go places and then they end up cancelling it. That always seems to be the case for something with a bit more depth, the studios get a little concerned in case it doesn't follow the usual successful formula: crash, bang and sex it up with as little depth as possible. It was the fact that real human stories could be told as they were in the original as well as other shows such as Babylon5 that made the original so good.
