 True Storytelling

| | See all Maverickagent's reviews (2)

Space shows are boring. Really boring. Raise shields. Shoot laser. Chat about the zabulabs from planet who cares.

Battlestar Galacta's new image is totally the opposite. Gritty and harsh, with realistic characters and tough, hard hitting drama. People die, people get hurt. There arent any shields, and no lasers. When you get shot, theres no quick trip to the doctor and all good in the morning.

Life in the future, at war with a robotic race is shown how it should be- harsh, volatile and all the more glorious for it. Oh and this may upset some of the plebs who like their baddies and goodies clear cut into terrorist and american, but guess what - not all the humans are in the right. Not all the cylons are in the wrong. Nothing is black and white.

If you love drama and have been put off sci fi in the past due to men in rubber masks, then this may just change your mind.

 OUTSTANDING

Hard hitting gritty Sci-Fi Drama. Excellent stuff. You must get the mini-series prior to watching this as this "Season One" boxset simply continues from the Mini-Series.
(Also know as the Pilot Episode or Season Zero)

When I first heard about the remake of the old '70s classic series, my initial reaction was one of dread. "Oh no! They just had to exploit even good old Galactica's name to make another cash cow, didn't they?" I was surprised, even shocked, to find that not only this was not true, but also that BG 2.0 surpassed even my wildest hopes of ever watching a truly top-notch sci-fi series of this kind.

As other reviewers have already written, the actors are excellent, each and every one of them and especially Mary McDonnell and Edward James Olmos who make a great match as the heads of State and the Military respectively. Production values are sky-high, the SFX are excellent, the music is so good that it sounds almost out of place in a TV series and the direction is fresh and dynamic, giving the viewer the impression that he is not watching a series, but rather some kind of war documentary. The camera snaps and zooms violently to the action like live footage from a war zone, while the same trick is used in a much more subtle way when characters are engaged in important discussion, giving emphasis to their well written and delivered lines.

Indeed, the viewer will often find himself wondering just what BG is exactly about. On the surface it is just the tale of a space-faring civilization on the brink of total extinction, but underneath this layer a lot of our fundamental values, questions and views about life, politics, war, love, even religion and God are put on the table.

One of the most important aspects of good fiction (whether fantasy or sci-fi) is its ability to put what we already know under a new light, offering fresh insight on things we take for granted. Battlestar Galactica re-imagined takes full advantage of this and manages to deliver not just thrilling SFX and good entertainment, but genuine food for thought.

 Genius!

The big fear among the Battlestar faithful was that the update wouldn't live up, or remain faithful to the original.

The idea of Dirk Benedict's uber charismatic rogue, Starbuck, undergoing a gender reversal sent shockwaves of horror throughout on-line forums and the general feeling was one of dread concerning the re-make of the kitsch sci-fi classic.

If ever there were any doubts however, a cast of unbelievable gravitas (Edward James Olmos, Katee Sackoff etc.) and a rivetting plot and effects budget puts them safely to bed.

The new Battlestar covers all bases with drama, action, politics, conspiracy and a myriad of others wrapped neatly into various overlapping plot threads that make for one of the most compelling tv series to come of recent times.

Analogous with contemporary issues, it smacks of the ingredients that made the original great, while improving to enthrall the modern audience.

This is no mere soap opera in space, rather a broad sweeping political thriller with enough dog fights, Cylon shoot outs and essential militaria to sate the action predilection.

The concept is fleshed with a plot that outshines the original in terms of execution and detail and a cast that bring the sort of grit and realism often so lacking from this particular genre.

The characters are no mere automatons along for the ride, but real people with genuinely affecting issues that accenuate an already gripping dilemma. It of course helps that they play their parts exceptionally.

In short, superb! a must see, and a landmark in redefining a genre.

The bar has just been raised

Battlestar galactica is undoubtly one of the best sci-fi series ever. It's not just about starships and aliens, it goes far beyond the stereotypes we're used to; characters, as well as situations and settings are darker, somehow harsher and definetly more human, in all good and mostly bad aspects. It is, for many aspects, more real: no incredible technologies (the communicate with wired phones and distorted radios) and no unreal situation (they need to find food, water and fuel). If you saw the original series, don't think this is just a remake, it is way different. The first season is a real work of art: you get to discover a little piece of big puzzle episode after episode, in a continous thrilling atmosphere., and everything gets more and more complicated as time passes by. Do aspect: incredible cgi (if I'm not wrong, it won a price for it too), well designed characters, great story, incredible atmospheres. Don not aspect: clean faces (this is all rudly dirty, and absolutly human...starships and people keep decaying), easy conclusions, soft situations.
