I remember watching the original Battlestar Galactica series on TV early in the 80s. Next to with snippets of the cartoon version of Star Trek, I think its one of the earliest TV memories I have, along with – I must confess – the trauma of watching Battle of the Network Stars. But I digress, it seems fans of the original series should stay away from the SCI-FI channel’s new mini-series. From wired:
“We realized the only way we could improve on the original is if the Cylons could have sex,” quipped co-executive producer David Eick at Tuesday night’s Los Angeles premiere. The chrome-domed “walking toasters” from the original TV series are succeeded by — well, really hot blond chicks, who infiltrate human society to engineer its doom.
