These were unanimously met with booing by the audiences. See more »

Again... the same bad show
6 December 2007 | by ethylalexanderSee all my reviews

No matter how many time SciFi Channel tries to hype Battlestar Galactica it hits its head on one very problematic fact: The new Battlestar Galactica is not only lamer than the original, but on its own terms, it is a disgrace to the art of film and television.

Years into production and Ron Moore still thinks that mindlessly shaking a video camera is making his show more "real".

Well, let me tell you Mr. Moore: if by "real" you mean nausea-inducing on a physical level and disgust-inducing on a film-making level, then you've got it right.

Trying to be pretentiously "relevent" may give you point with critics who seem to always zero-in on bad shows, but it doesn't score points with the public who see this show for what it is: An awful mess.
