Yeah, so I was fairly snide and derogatory about the new Battlestar Galactica when it first aired. The thought of a female Starbuck and the whole premise in general just sort of fell flat with me and nothing anyone could tell me would make me think otherwise. To top it all off I had missed the original mini-series (on purpose mind you) and only managed to catch an episode here and there so I got the story piecemeal and in disjointed snippets.
I now humbly retract my original statement. One of my co-workers loaned me their copy of season one on DVD recently and I have been watching it from the beginning with fresh eyes. Now that I see the whole tapestry of the storyline, I have great respect for it. It’s enjoyable and the characters realistic. And it’s just fun, gritty sci-fi. You can’t go wrong with that.
Now I just have to scramble and get season two watched before Oct 7th when Season 3 airs.
