My latest obsession is Battlestar Galactica (currently available in Serbia only via Bit-Torent and eMule broadcasting networks, which is a shame). This is (IMHO) one of the rare good Sci-Fi shows on at the moment; I love it (almost) 100% and recommend it to anyone with at least slight interest in this genre.
The story is about humans being almost wiped-out by robots, and handful of survivors running for their lives, chasing legendary thirteenth colony of man: Earth.
Yup – plot seams to be weak (this is a re-make of 1970’s show) – at least in a way which I’ve described it, but realization of the show is makes up for it all.
Show features a lot of progressive frcoklas:
– Music score is mostly very original – which transfers you to a bit alien atmosphere.
– Camera moves are very jerky and help realism – bringing a kind of news-reporter-action-style, but it gets better when this is used in special-effects scenes: then it brings much more credibility to computer-generated images, and makes effects more subtle.
– Twists in the plot and characters from the original
– Blogs to talk with authors, and podcast for every epozode

So, what do you think about new Battlestar Galactica?
Did you like music from the old show better?
Do you think story is lame? What about casting?
