Best SF show on TV today!

by gigi10317@yahoo.com on 4/4/2008

I feel about this show like I felt about Star Trek back in 1966, when it was very relevant and edgy compared to the shows that were then on the air. Especially from my 16 year old standpoint. The best SF says something about who we are & what is happening NOW. Sometimes the science is not all that acurate but the story is the point in this show. I can't wait to find out where it's going. This show is full of surprises and after all these years, it hard not to be one step ahead of the plot in just about every show on TV. Like when you see the first 5 min.-you know the ending. With this - I'm on the edge of my seat. Love it! Read More

I love it. Great storyline, as the plot gets more intense and complex. The special effects for the battle scenes are great. Although, it is getting tiresome of how they keep bringing up the love affairs between Starbuck and Apollo...... Read More

Editors Note
Note Though the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA of the 1970s is primarily known as a kitschy cult favorite, this darker incarnation is beloved by critics and fans alike. The series follows the last surviving humans who are at war with their own robotic creation, the Cylons. The man-versus-machine concept may be a genre cliché, but the show brings intelligence and a healthy dose of social commentary to the table. After the game-changing finale of season two, the third season begins with the majority of the humans living on New Caprica, but they're under a Cylon occupation. President Baltar (James Callis) is a Cylon puppet, and Starbuck (Katee Sackoff) is held captive by Leoben (Callum Keith Rennie). But an insurgency led by Col. Tigh (Michael Hogan), Anders (Michael Trucco), and Tyrol (Aaron Douglas) keeps hope alive for the humans as they struggle to survive under Cylon rule. From this startling beginning to the shocking revelations of the third season finale, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA continues its Peabody Award-winning tradition of challenging viewers with its lack of clear-cut heroes or villains. Edward James Olmos stars as the head of the fleet, while Mary McDonnell plays the former president. This release includes the third season in its entirety.
