    Default battlestar galactica

    hello,
    Im just starting to get into the series and I noticed there has been loads of material and series released on battlestar galactica
    does anyone of you know when I should start watching it?
    from what I know so far theres a 2003 mini series, a new series in 2004, and also the older series of 1978, are all of them the same

    The 1978 series is completely different and vastly superior to the newer stuff. It has Lorne Green in it for goodness sake.

    those are both true statements. to which I'd add, the 1978 series was atrociously bad.

    The new SciFi channel is a re-imagining of the 70s series. They are otherwise unrelated.

    The 2003 miniseries was the kickoff/test balloon for the new series. People liked it so they kept going and created the show which is scheduled to begin it's 4th and final season in March.

    Ideally you want to start off with the 2003 miniseries and then move through the rest of the show. Most (if not all) copies of Season 1 of the series will have the miniseries in there with it.

    Bite me! It had a robotic dog, you weasel.




    Also, "atrociously bad"? I think you need to sharpen your adverb usage skills. Not that it's wrong, it's just, well, horribly terrible.

    Umm, no, excuse me. Start with 1978! Forget the rest after that.

    i don't think you have to go back to the 78' series and movie to appreciate and love the sci-fi version, but if you got the time, sure. Start with the mini series and borrow and rent away til you catch up. If you do watch the 78 stuff first, you will have a nice connection with an actor that takes on a recurring guest role.

    Speaking of connections with the 78 show, anyone dig on "Razor" that aired this past weekend? Made me long for the old school ice tunnel at Universal Studios. i sadly accept this season is the last for Battlestar, but would be most happy if they do some Adama prequel or a few movies.

    united - my honest opinion is that you should start with the current version mini series and go from there. Sadly though, I think you may find that the second half of the 3rd season renders the show nearly unwatchable. I barely have any interest in watching the 4th season...if it ever airs.

    You know,I never even thought of that.About a year ago,I found the pilot on Demonoid and put it on a DVD and forgot all about it after watching it with my son once.He couldn't tell it was my voice.I had one fairly long scene with Lorne Greene,where I explained everything about the end of the world to him.

    Hahahaa,I found it!It's about 3 minutes in.It's weird because when I watched it some of the lines came back to me.Probably because I had to say them like 40 million times with a sound editor,trying to match Robbie Rist's lips and inflections.
