Best of Science Fiction -- Best of Television
10 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not a remake of the cheesy series from years ago but a completely re-imagined universe. No more "poofy" haircuts, capes, and pseudo-Egyptian helmets. These Colonials dress in flight suits, uniforms, and clothing that suggest another world as well as ours.

It's science fiction at its best. Thought provoking. Well written. Well acted. Unafraid to tackle controversial topics head on.

And when you think you know what's going to happen next -- Duck! Because the new Battlestar Galactica will upset all your expectations and expose you to new ways of looking at television, science fiction and life.

For the thinking person this show should be at the top of your "must see" list.

Edward James Olmos (William Adama) and Mary McDonnell (Laura Roslyn) are fantastic. Their on screen chemistry is amazing and their abilities to communicate non-verbally unmatched. The nuances of their scenes together are enough to propel this show to the top 10 of all time.

James Callis (Gaius Baltar) is wonderful as well. His mixture of brilliance, insanity, comic relief, and religious zealotry brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "evil genius."

Watch this show!

It's the best show on TV.

And by the way, the show won a Peabody Award. These are given to "outstanding works exhibiting excellence, distinguished achievement, and meritorious service by radio and television networks, stations, cable television organizations, producing organizations, and individuals."
