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...
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.
