I have started watching the 2003 reimagining of Battlestar Galactica. Ten episodes into it (and beyond the two-part pilot mini-series), I really enjoy it. The feeling is much alike that of when I first discovered Firefly.
The series is set in a distant solar system, decades after a war between humans and robot Cylons. When all seems fine and dandy again, the robots suddenly attack the twelve human colonies, almost destroying the human civilisation and forcing the 50 000 humans left to flee the solar system into deep space. The Cylons continue to seek the remains of humanity, and someone speaks of the legendary 13th colony, planet Earth, a possible sanctuary from the Cylons.
Now, is the 1978 original version worth watching as well?
