*is insane post-a-holic*

So... I have to say I am loving the new Battlestar Galactica. Watched the first episode (counting the mini-series as the pilot) this morning (I am sneaky and well connected). Sure, it has nothing in common with its namesake but its name, but I'm not a BSG purist (please don't stone me). It's quite slow, but it's incredibly atmospheric and I imagine it will become more action packed as episodes progress.

The characters, the dialogue, the camera work the special effects, the concepts and ideals... they're all so indepth. It's one of the most naturalistic Sci-Fi shows I've ever seen. The discourses on God are interesting in a "hmm, robots believing in God? and being fundamentalists?" kind of way. The acting is really good. Yes, my Jamie fangirl was constantly saying "poor Bambini needs a hug, he's so tired", and also "his cute high American accent! weee!" But I was impressed with everyone else too.

Anyway, I think it's cool. It's not for everyone... and I do hope it gets a teeny bit more lighthearted and faster paced... but it is interesting. I don't wonder that Original BSG fans are pissed, though... it is nothing like the Richard Hatch BSG... at all. I can't help but wonder that they might have benefited from giving it a different name but attributing the basis on Battlestar Galactica. They could have just called it "The Cylons" yaknow? Ehhh... "Battlestar Galactica" has such a memorable ring to it, I'd have wanted to use it too.
