Do any of you have opinions on SciFi's new Battlestar Galactica series? I've always been a fan of the original--despite being too young to see it outside of syndication. Admitting that, I think the new one is an order of magnitude better.

I am much more of a horror buff than a scifi ...and I have tried to watch it over and over...but BG is still boring to me...but all of my friends who are into scifi say it is awesome!!!
the only scifi show I really dug was babylon 5...I loved the elder races !!!

It's only just started here (we're on the 3rd episode......last night!) much darker than the original, much more of a struggle......will keep watching.......maybe we'll get a HUGE space cylon ceph??????

Well, I've seen the whole of the new series of Battlestar Galactica and can honestly say it's brilliant. In my rambling opinion it's by far the best sci-fi series since Babylon 5. For some reason the whole series was shown here in the UK before the US transmission.

Stick with it, it is very character driven and is very dark with some some very interesting twists and turns...and the end...... OMG!!!!!! Yes, you will see more of the metal cylons and they are very well animated. Can't wait for Season 2 which has just been approved.

Pity the new B5 movie has been cancelled. :-(

most definitely is dark.... wins points for that..... why is it that scifi airs everythingy in the UK 2-3 weeks before US, let alone other places.....

katie sackhoff playing a fallible starbuck and tricia helfer definitely win me over..... if you want to stretch things i guess you could say the cyclon base star are almost nautilusish when they launch a wad of raider.... of course thats a heck of a stretch....

The new metal cylons are bada$$. I was five when I used to watch Galactica with my parents and we loved the original (though I will admit to being a bit spooked by the original Cylons).

B5 was brilliant. So sad to hear about that movie...

Sorry to interrupt the "Battlestar" talk, I thought this nice French Absolut ad might not have been seen yet. "Absolut 20,000 Leagues" is an official French advert for the premium vodka, tied-in with a bar in Marseille (address below the title).

Yours truly, despite being a traitor,
