    Come on!! I am a big fan of the original but this is much more compelling. Ya, I know it was hard to see Starbuck and Boomer as females, but the complexity of the story and the real-life human struggles make this a lot more interesting and dramatic. Yes, it is a dark series but it adds to the anticipation of what will happen next. It kind of reminds me of what it was like to watch Alien when I was a kid. (dark, stressful, sometimes scary and definitely nail-biting).

    I’m actually just young enough not to remember the original show (25 at the time of this writing) although I know I saw some of it when younger. But an unbiased opinion agrees with much of what the reviewer said. It IS a very dark show, a bit bleak, but with JUST a touch of hope that he may not have seen. I actually didn’t expect much of this series, but fortunately so far (first few episodes I have watched) I am blown away and now have a rekindled interest in both the sci-fi genre AND the sci-fi channel which I had written off not long ago.

    This series (so far) is striking the perfect touch of desperation and yet strength to reflect the modern world today. We have the ability to triumph, even when things seem to be falling apart.
