In hindsight with the new series someway behind us and all of its
offshoot options truncated, i think i can say i like the Original
better.
maybe it has nostalgia because i was only 14 when it debuted and scifi
of that magnitude was rare in theater OR TV in those days.
yeah, it had some corny stories and it didnt have the gritty 'real' feel
of the new, but i like it because it was more escapist fantasy and not
just a displaced post apocalypse set in space.
i kind of see that roland ð. moore sold his premise clothed in BSG
because it was much more likely to be picked up as a series if it had an
established name on it already, given the current climate of recycling
going on in hollywood. also he had a big basic framework already in
place. all he did was totally erase Larsaon's details and put his own in
there.
I would have like to seen moore's opus without it being piggybacked on
BSG backstory and character names.
it kind of turned BSG from a pleasant memory that was really only cared
about by its devotees and rebranded, hijacked actually, into a situation
in it will be the reimagined show that in the future will automatically
be called 'battlestar galactica' and the original will be little more
than a footnote held up to even more ridicule than it had gotten before
the new series even came out.
