    I must say...very good! Looking forward to the rest of it, as well as getting the original first (and only) season on DVD.

    I'm old enough to remember the series on TV, but I can't say I'll be watching the marathon....I had a HUGE addiction to the show as a kid, but I couldn't remember the character names now if you paid me!? [​IMG]

    You'll be addicted again....The story was/is great...one of the better sci-fi stories. (Better than Star-Trek IMO). Names that may ring a bell: Apollo, Starbuck, Adama?? Starbuck turned into Face on "The A Team" after Battlestar..StarBuck is now a girl. Go figure.

    I have been reading up since it came out and I will probably get the DVD set of the entire seriers. It lasted a whopping one season because the special effects were Star-Wars grade at the time and it became too expensive.

    The story is a bit different. The Galactica is being decommisioned the day the bad guys attack. It is the oldest ship in the fleet and half of it is a museum. The bad guys (Cylons) are able to knock out all the current ships by screwing up their computers. The Galactica doesn't have them, and is immune...as well as it's stock of 40 yr old fighters....which incidentally are the exact ones used in the TV series.

    Thats the partial plot in laymens terms. If you have the slightest interest in Sci-Fi at all, you need to watch this!

    It was a little different from the original, but I think they have a winner, from what I have seen it is going to be a series, I sure hope that happens, I really liked it!!!!!

    I am sorry but Sci Fi made three mistakes that they are going to struggle to get back my fandom.

    1.) Not Picking up B5 when they had the chance.
    2.) Not picking up Crusade...which had so much potential.
    3.) Canceling Farscape before they finished it.

    You would think... A few months ago I almost NEVER watched TV (though I admit I watched American Idol...one of the funniest shows ever!) Now there is all sorts of good stuff to watch.
