    [For entire series] Here's a remake of a classic underrated at the time sci-fi show that is even richer, bigger, and more profound by far on every level.

While some changes from the original are a bit annoying here and there, it's massively out weighed by the scope of the production and attention to realism. Most of all though, it's the timely debate the show carries questioning terrorism, first strikes, racial profiling, homeland security, etc. that makes it award-winning science fiction at its best!

    Watching the final season of Battlestar Galactica it is difficult not to feel that the creators had written themselves into corners they could not always get themselves out of in a satisfactory manner.

Despite this the show did continue to deliver some superb drama in its closing twenty-two episode run and whilst not everyone will be entirely pleased with how it ended anyone who watched the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica from start to finish will know they have witnessed a show that ranks amongst the very best that the sci-fi genre has ever produced.

    Oh dear. So, up until this season I was thinking, "this is the greatest show I have ever seen." It so brilliantly and entertainingly captures everything about the human condition: family, technology, faith, friendship, love - even the meaning of being human. I never found the show heavyhanded, and in all of the characters I saw things to admire and things to abhor - the mark of goodOh dear. So, up until this season I was thinking, "this is the greatest show I have ever seen." It so brilliantly and entertainingly captures everything about the human condition: family, technology, faith, friendship, love - even the meaning of being human. I never found the show heavyhanded, and in all of the characters I saw things to admire and things to abhor - the mark of good characterization. Expectations were high for the finale. I know that. And, unfortunately, they were not really met. I feel like there were some questions that has been built up for several seasons - namely, Hera's importance to the plot - that were given somewhat anticlimactic answers. The finale episode had far too many false endings and needless explanations, while in some of the bigger issues like faith, I feel like the writers were too afraid to commit, so they ended with a nonsensical, "maybe it's both" idea. Also, the overall message of the show certainly shouldn't be anti-tech. I think that it could have been handled better, but several characters like Rosselin, Boomer/Helo, and Baltar/Six were given perfect endings. It could have been much, much better - but those little complaints still pale in comparison to all there is to like about BSG. Watch it. Now. Expand
