OK, I was out of town when the season opener aired, so I recorded it and just had a chance to watch it. My first impression was, wow, this thing is going where the original never had the opportunity. It’s darker and more violent. It’s also hitting a bit close to home with the idiot president, suicide bombs and the enemy who thinks murder is God’s message.
That said, I’m having a bit of a flashback to “V”, another scifi TV show that had great promise, but failed to keep things on track. The first thing they did wrong was introduce an alien/human hybrid baby. Sound familiar? Being a fan of the original series who thought that Starbuck was the best character on the show, I still cringe a bit over the new Starbuck being a female (sorry, I’m just true to the original). Don’t get me wrong, I like the current character, but now she’s got a hybrid baby? Sheesh!
And then there’s Boomer’s hybrid baby hidden away somewhere.
Enough of the babies already! It didn’t work for “V” and I really don’t want to see Battlestar Galactica go down that road.
Again, this has nothing to do with SEO, but, hey, it’s my blog, so forgive the off-topic rants.
