Just ignore the idiot. It's a brainless moronic troll who usually
cross-posts to a wrestling newsgroup as well. :-(

Haven't seen it and never intend to see it. No idea if it has even played
here in New Zealand, but I have absolutely no interest in Ron Moore's
garbage-ised version of Battlestar Galactica nor its spin-offs.

Eh, Blood and Chrome was fun though. Entertaining at least. If
nothing else, check out the first 5 minutes. :)

Not even remotely interested. There's only one real "Battlestar Galactica"
and that's the one created by Glen Larson. :-)

I would watch this show if only I didn't have too many
other shows to watch atm.

I did like Caprica, especially the interplay between
father & daughter.

nuBSG was rather patchy, like the curate's egg.
I thought there were some good episodes & I did like the
sexy Baltar scenes.
Overall, in retrospect it was rather a disappointment to
me.

Good to hear.

So there is a mini-series; there is also a movie?
If so, does it precede the mini-series? or something else?

Ron Moore's so-called "Battlestar Galactica" was a disappoint to many
people, especially since before he took over it was going to be a proper
continuation of the real "Battlestar Galactica" (may or may not have been
Ron Moore's fault).

The big problem is that there are now two very different versions of
"Battlestar Galactica" (only the original version of which is the real
one) and one more in the planning (which has stupidly been described as
fitting somehow into both versions!), plus the
still-planned-but-unlikely-to-happen movie version of the real "Battlestar
Galactica" ... and that's before some other idiot comes along and tries to
"reboot" it again. :-(

Wow... you are more bitter than most classic fans I know. I like it! :P

Ummm... where to start on this? Well, I'm a classic fan, and there is
some good activity on the internet for the classic fans and I basically
stick to that. On one place called "Colonial Fleets" which is the hub
of the classic activity we normally don't talk about "that other
Galactica". But the only person more bitter about the new series was
Dirk Benedict himself. So in a thread we talked about our thoughts on
the new series, and here were my thoughts...

http://www.colonialfleets.com/forums/showpost.php?p=311409&a mp;postcount=10

Basically my comment comes around the idea that it is hard to get into
an environment where people who have never been to Earth, heading to
Earth, 100,000 years before our modern time are wearing suit and ties
and firing guns with bullets.

Just saying. :)

Yeh, it sucks having to enter the search engine for "Battlestar
Galactica" and getting both shows. But happy to say classic is still
around in a fan sense.

You know, the Blood and Chrome is what I waiting on since Battlestar
Galactica was rebooted. Had action, more Vipers, fun pilot banter, no
suits and ties, and shooting down classic looking Cylon raiders and
fighting Cylons. Good stuff.

> I did like Caprica, especially the interplay between

I watched Caprica hoping there would be some of the Cylon/Human war
stuff. There was not. But there were some interesting moments, like
the time they illustrated the pain the Cylon (sometimes shown as the
daughter) when they commanded the Cylon to rip its arm off. Powerful
moment.

I think I got off the new series at the first episode. Now a lot of New
BSG fans say they were hooked by the second or third episode.

Here's the problem, and I say this time after time after time...

If New BSG had been named anything other than Battlestar Galactica I
would have LOVED the series. I am watching Space Above and Beyond
right now... VERY much like the new BSG, and I adore that show.

But for me, I went into the New BSG thinking action, Vipers, fun pilot
banter, fighting Cylons, and .. blasters. I liked the hope the classic
show gave. The dignity humanity had in the face of adversity. How
humanity was priceless against wave after wave of appliances. Great
mythology with a religious overtone, etc.

The New BSG had most of that, just felt like I needed a bath after
watching the mini-series. :)

It amazes me how the classic BSG had such a cool spark and how the new
BSG has this... anti-spark. :P

It is like getting chocolate cake made with salt instead of sugar.
But if you like salt it is perfect.

Well Blood and Chrome was a like a 10 part mini series, showing 15
minutes at a time on YouTube. And now they are showing the entire
thing all together.

Probably the best BSG they've made yet, and probably won't be a regular
series. Figures.

It's not just "Battlestar Galactica". I detest all idiotic in-name-only
"reboots".

If they want to make a show that's different, then just make a new show.
Why bother stealing the old show's name and then making it into something
very different? It's moronically stupid ... but then Hollyweird and
management in general ARE moronically stupid! :-\

Real "Battlestar Galactica" will always be around in a fan sense, but in
the public sense it's been replaced by Ron Moore's garbagised version.
It's extremely unlikely real "Battlestar Galactica" will ever be added to
properly, despite Glen Larson's attempts. Having two (or even three if the
other fool gets his way) different versions existing under the same name
is silly enough, having them competing against each other at the same time
is also moronically stupid.

I stopped bothering to watch after about the first 15 minutes of the pilot
episode when they had to put in an idiotic sex scene just to retain
pervert viewers. It was obviously going to be nothing but downhill from
there. :-\
(In fact, if I remember correctly, I almost switched it off within the
first five minutes when they insisted on shoving a camera up along the
blonde woman's legs.)

So you are saying that Classic Battlestar Galactica did not have eye
candy, or have interesting situations for the adult audience viewers?

Yeh I won't lie, having to weed through the other Battlestar Galactica
to find information on the Galactica I like is annoying.

So you're saying they proved she was a real blonde by establishing that

Really? Is that why it went several years?

The pilot won the show a go ahead for the series.

What would have named a show with a battlestar named Galactica?

How about, Adama's Islan?

You only watched ONE episode and then say something like that?

Pathetic.

Oh dear, here we go with the argumentative dimbulbs who can't read. :-\

Yes, I have internet, but it's a dial-up connection which makes trying to
stream or download video highly pointless ... plus, if you'd actually
bothered to read what I wrote you'd see that it says "I have absolutely no
interest in Ron Moore's garbage-ised version of Battlestar Galactica nor
its spin-offs".

Maybe words of one syllable will help: I do not want to watch it.

Where exactly did I say "nobody liked it"?? :-\

Most actual fans of the real "Battlestar Galactica" wanted a proper
continuation. They liked the show how it was, that's why they called
"fans". Most were disappointed that it was changed to be a reboot,
including some of those who did like Ron Moore's version as well.

Five minutes is enough to tell anyone with more than one braincell that
Ron More's version is different to Glen Larson's real "Battlestar
Galactica". (Of course, anyone with a brain already knew that because the
people making it had been saying it all along.)

The 15 minutes or so that I did watch was enough for me personally to know
I didn't like it and wasn't going to bother wasting any more time watching
it. People with brains don't actually need to sit through numerous hours
of drivel, only to complain at the end that they didn't like it and
moronically whine " I want X hours of my life back".

Unlike Your Name I watched all of it & did like a big part

You can cite a poll or something that supports the claim

Most actual fans of the real "Battlestar Galactica" wanted a proper
continuation?

and that

Most were disappointed that it was changed to be a reboot

Or did you just pull those out of the air?

Which is true of any show. The difference here is that the reboot was highly
praised and lasted four years, unlike the original.

You said it was a disappointment to many. NO ONE said "nobody liked it"
except for YOU, in a weak attempt to dodge.

The old one?

Here's you able to judge from 15 minutes of tjhe pilot what the acclaimed
series was really like

The 15 minutes or so that I did watch was enough for me personally to know
I didn't like it and wasn't going to bother wasting any more time watching
it.

Blood and Chrome was decent enough, though I thought the actor playing Adama a bit on the weak side, even for a young officer, and his "interaction" with the peace-seeking diplomat a bit stereotyped and trite although it did give her a chance to utter a great line about regret. The all-green screen CGI was better than in other Syfy shows and we got more a sense of depth in the far shots. Who knows, combining B&C with Caprica might have been a great show.
