Last Rewatch: 03/05/2021 - 28/08/2021

Plot (IMDb): When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurface and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protect a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony, Earth.

Battlestar Galactica, aired for the first time in 2003 as a miniseries. It was a backdoor pilot for the 2004 series. The miniseries was big hit so it was not a surprise it became a series. Battlestar Galactica was the best thing after Star Trek DS9 (on which Ronald D. Moore also worked on for quite a few years) and Babylon 5. I was really sinking my teeth into this new show with superb CGI. It simply looked amazing.


I for one always thought it to be a shame that Starbuck and Boomer were turned into females but that's just my view. The miniseries, the first two seasons were the best and also the occupation episodes at the start of season 3 , which reminds me a lot of the Dominion occuptation of the station what now again was called Terok Nor on Deep Space Nine. No surprise there because Ronald D. Moore was heavily involved in that. Oh man it was so good, at that time I truly believed BSG could match-up with  my 2 all time favorites DS9 and Babylon 5. I wasn't a fan of the direction it went into the last two seasons. Of course it still has some fantastic episodes but it never had the same quality as it had the first two seasons. 


So in my book, B5 and DS9 are still my numbers one, although The Expanse is getting up there too if it continues to be this good. Getting back to Battlestar, I know a lot of folks won't have the same opinion and that's okay. And as I said, it's not that the last two seasons didn't deliver some very good TV, but it is my feeling that it never was the same quality as the first two seasons. I think otherwise BSG would be there at the my top 2, making it a top 3. Perhaps my favorite episode, which actually is a movie, is Razor! Oh man what a treat is that. So BSG has to be among my favorite TV shows because the miniseries, the first two seasons and the occupation episodes, plus the Razor movie are simply awesome TV! That for me is enough.
