Now this brings back memories!
I was nine years old when the original Battlestar Galactica aired, and it was a weekly battle with my sister to get to watch it. I don't even remember what was on that she wanted to watch, but I wanted to watch Galactica on the color TV in the living room, not the small black and white in my bedroom. The original is no match for the reinvented version on today, but as a moment in time, it is a joy to watch. And if it brings back the random flash of school boys flying around the playground in imaginary vipers almost thirty years ago, then so much the better. For those who were around the first time, get it for the memories. For those who have only seen the new version, get it to see how it all got started.
its soo nice
it reminds me of the good old days when a ham was free and cheeses were mean
was about time!
This is a new classic of science fiction, epics and a symbol of a generation. A generation that started to think in future and technology all together. A stunnishing story of survival and life itself.
