Boy did I hate the original series. STAR WARS wannabe 70's plastic sets sub-STAR TREK pap… but then along comes this totally revamped & reimagined BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Don't like Sci-Fi? No problem! Great acting, great characters, great story, great script. Love Sci-Fi? You're in for a treat! Great effects in a great tale well told. This series has it all – drama, romance, robots, sexy cylons & kick-ass special effects. If you loved Joss Whedon's FIREFLY (& the spin-off movie SERENITY) then BATTLESTAR is even better (though not as funny!) The best show on TV? Probably. The best Sci-Fi series ever? Most definately.
