I’m finally watching this new Sci-Fi channel series. And all I can say is “WOW”
The acting is amazingly good for a crap load of unknown actors. The special effects are quite nice for a TV show. I like how they really changed the technology. The Galatica looks pretty dang cool. The new Vipers are pretty nice, although I like how they brought back the old ones as museum pieces and then had to use ’em.
I’m not sure how much I like having Starbuck and Boomer be female. They were two important characters in the orginial series. But at least they won’t have the episode where all the male Viper Pilots come down sick and they have to train shuttle pilots how to fly them.
The new Cylons look pretty cool – very deadly. Although I’m still trying to figure out if I like that female one or not. Even if she did pretty much single handedly destroy humanity. Oh – and the museum was pretty cool – played homage to the old series with the old Cylon, the old Vipers, and even at one point the old theme song playing in the background.
