Top 35 characters from Battlestar Galactica

This is the list of the characters that left the biggest impression on me. Next to those characters that left generally good impression I will put(+), next to those that left mostly bad(-), next to those that left both good and bad this signs(+)(-) and next to some I will not put any sign.

I have to say that I have not seen BSG when it originally aired and I was really skeptic whether I will like it when I start watching it , because I'm not a fan of sci-fi shows that are based in space.
Now I think that this is one of THE GREATEST SHOWS EVER CREATED. It transcends that classic and in my opinion generic sci-fi style and take this genre on a whole new level. Level that no other show ever was or ever will be.

There are potential Spoilers in this list so if you have not seen BSG do not look at this list and I repeat do not look at this list and start watching BSG. You won't regret it trust me.

Top five was no brainer, rest not that easy.
If you liked this show tell me what you think about it and maybe what you think about this list.

PS: Grace Park and Tricia Helfer deserved at least an Emmy nomination for their work on this show.
Actually when I think about it many actors from this show deserved at least an Emmy nomination. They got none. That tells you how objective and credible all those award ceremonies are.

“ as Lt. Sharon 'Athena' Agathon (+),(+),(+),(+),(+)
"I'm Sharon, but I'm a different Sharon.
I know who I am.
I don't have hidden protocols or programs lying in wait to be activated.
I make my own choices, I make my own decisions, and I need you to know this is my choice."

She is one the most impressive character in my opinion, because she had every reason to hate all humans including Helo (those that watched the show know what I mean) and she chose not to. She was more HUMAN than any other human in this show. ” - DeusJ35
