"There are those who believe that life here began out there, far across the universe, with tribes of humans who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians, or the Toltecs, or the Mayans. Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man who even now fight to survive, somewhere beyond the heavens."

Hello one and all.

 I'm an old school fan of Battlestar Galactic. I was seven when the show first aired all those many yahrens ago.  I loved the show and it’s directly responsible for my loathing (American) Football.

Where I grew up we had one TV channel(all the 20 something’s read on in shock. “One channel?”)

Yes, one channel. It was an ABC affiliate.

So because there were no other networks stations close by they could show NBC and CBS sports(and boy’ did they).

I only remember seeing about 4 of the shows in the fall of that yahren because of fraking football! 

Football seemed to be on every time I wanted to watch anything.     

It was not until a few yahrens later that cable TV came through that I got the see all of Battlestar Galactica episodes on channel 39 out of Dallas TX.                                             

I remember watching Galactica 1980 with happiness then quickly followed by, where are Apollo and Starbuck? This is Boxee? Why call him Troy?  Even at age 8 I could tell this was felgercarb.  

It wasn’t until I found the whole series at best buy on DVD a few yahrens back that I had even seen the series sense I was 9. I remember passing when it aired on the “Sci-Fi Channel”. I bought it more or less because I now had all the

1978 Battlestar Galactic via the Cylon head DVD boxed set(great set by the way)and might as well get it if only because of the Starbuck episode.

Here is the funny thing, they are not as bad as I remember them being. They are at least watchable. As for the new Battlestar Galactic, if you ant got nothing nice to say, don’t say nothing at all. Or say it on twitter.

Wry smile re,aint got nuthin nice to say....it was loyalty to my childhood memories of BSG that kept me away from the re imagined for so long(till last month..:) ) ,how silly of me,of course they are both different but they both work for me.  My only complaint ,even as a child about BSG 1980 was those annoying kids with powers ,oh,and that creepy Milky Bar Kid/John Denver look a like.....its a shame they were not all of the thoughtfull quality of The Return of Starbuck...which incidently seemed to cover  3/4 of the dilemas of 4 seasons of re imagined BSG in about half an hour ....albeit with the campest Centurion ever :)
