Just wanted to say that your new avatar is awesome, Ming!
Also sounds like a great cameo opportunity for any of many former cast members; Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict come to mind first, of course.Apparently there will be references to old BSG stuff in the new series, like the old robots in museum cases and the like.
I've followed the whole saga of the revival movie, battling copyrights, and such. I was glad to see the project wind up in the hands of the sci-fi channel. I -haven't- followed up since then, since I was pretty happy with the concept art I was already seeing.It's not really a "remake", so much as a "rethinking" of the series, and seems more dark and modern. The hardcore old series fans might be disappointed if they go in expecting a re-do of the 1979 light-hearted toned series.
So you won't be too disappointed if magnitudes of stock footage and fuzzy mechanical daggets fall to the wayside?Fortunately I'm not one of those hard-core folks, and I look forward to it as well
Richard Hatch and Dirk Benedict supplied voice acting for the BSG game coming to the XBox & Playstation. B)Originally posted by Ghrankenstein@Nov 12 2003, 01:26 PM

Yeah, Battlestar Galactica might have topped Black Sheep Squadron when it came to stock footage content, putting perilously close to Teletubbies territory.No more stock footage! I can only take seeing the same Viper launch sequence so many times...!
This isn't right. Geek-level truth aside, Cylons are ROBOTS. Cylons looking like humans MUST GO DOWN THE STAIRS.I heard that the new miniseries is using CGI Cylons, and is on a tight budget, and that instead of stock footage, we may just see less Cylons and space battles. I'm not sure that I like the idea of the "main" Cylons looking like humans, though. Reminds me too much of the Terminator.
It was good. After almost a year of promoting the show on Sci-Fi, however, it was a let down at only 4 hours or so total (with commercials).Originally posted by Ghrankenstein@Dec 23 2003, 09:29 PM
How was it? (I don't have cable.)
I would like to see BG continue as well. Let's just hope it isn't followed up by Galactica 1980 2004.I can't help but think they will continue it in some fashion - it just ends on too much of a cliffhanger. Maybe Sci-Fi can skip 2 cheesy sci-fi original saturday night flicks to fund another "episode".
