    I hope it doesn't rely on overtly religious overtones and a shit-load of heavy-handed symbolism to the point of ad nauseam, more padding than my couch, and an attempt to pass off the old Sci-Fi trope of concealed aliens as our contemporary view of terrorists, the issue of course being that Al-Queda is a cultural movement, thus aren't 'just like us', so to speak, and for such a large-scale infiltration to occur would suggest gross military incompetence, which raises the question as to how the hell any humans survived at all, let alone for how long they did.

    Oh, and four years of humans inexplicably surviving an immensely superior hostile force, only to have it all resolved by saying 'God did it!' and robots are evil.

    'Cos that would be shite.

    See, other people can have opinions too.

    No problem there, you've actually got one beyond it not being enougth like a load of 70s tosh that gets a free pass for being on TV when we were kids.

    Damn, next time i should explain my comments. ^^
    Well..Hm...ok, let me put it this way. The new "Galactica" can be a good show, i just dont like it. But i dont talk trash about it, so dont worry for me saying something innapropiate.
    Thing is that all i hear from the original Galactica series was from my brother and it sounded like a good show, i havent seen it, i think i was too young to remember and i havent seen reruns of it on TV. And when i heard there was a new Galactica i was expecting something different, thats all. I didnt feel appealing the plot and the characters.
    We all have different tastes after all, right? ^^

    Sorry for giving a bad comment without an explanation. :(

    Nope. The goggles do nothing. I've seen it recently enough to know just how cheezy it was. But, it was still fun, and I actually liked the characters. Two things that the new BSG consistantly failed to deliver on.

    Well, I did like Tigh, for a short time in the first season, when he was sober. But then, his wife showed up, and he crawled right back into the bottle. Of course, I'd probably drink too, if I was married to her.

    My concern for V is that it'll try too hard to be BSG, and wrap itself up in 'contemporary' issues, that a modern audience can 'relate' to, and wind-up delivering these messages in such a heavy-handed manner that you forget why the show bothers to be Sci-fi and should just be called "America V. Terrorists".
    Now I'm not a fan of OBSG, but I have to agree that NBSG is chock-a-block full of characters who are all just jerks. Maybe this is realistic, I don't know. But it makes for some intensely boring drama when you realise that you don't care if the characters live or die.

    And NBSG is hardly innocent of not using the same action again and again. Have you seen any of the dogfights? Just a whole lot of explosions and blurs. That is, when they bother to show you the dogfights and not just have the entire battle relayed to us in the control room.
