I was no fan of the original BS series - I know, I'm sorry all you purists, but I didn't like it - and I was reluctant to give a re-imaged series a try. But I am so glad I did - this is one of the very best sci fi series ever created, and being a bit of a sci fi nut, I have given most of them a go!
The characterization is strong and brilliantly done, the robots are lethally excellent and the "baddie" cylons, delightfully complex, rounded villains. The actors seem to have real investment in their roles and it makes a difference. Special effects are well up to speed and storylines are strong and challenging.
I look forward to the new series beginning , but a word of warning.
Can we please have a proper ending and not wait for a ratings fall to call a premature halt? I think I speak for fans of all series when I say we'd rather have 3 or 4 good seasons and a definite ending, to being left with a dingly dangly cliffhanger that due to a series cancellation will never be satisfied?
