What happens when there are too many streaming channels? Battlestar Gallactica returns. I will have to admit I did watch the TV series in the seventies and again in 2004. The series did better in 2004, but I think it was due to the lack of science fiction space operas on TV. The graphics and special effects as expected were much better, but the story line is always predictable. It reminds me of a Hallmark channel movie, you know how it will end after the first five minutes. Battlestar Gallactica was the same. Before you even turned on the TV you knew the ending. You always knew Battlestar Gallactica was going to have to fight the Cylons. This new remake now streaming on Peacock has the same problem. Now the Cylons attack the Battlestar every 33 minutes. Give me a break.
In Star Wars the rebels were always fighting the Evil Empire but there was much better plot development with Star Wars than Battlestar Gallactica and the characters were much more charismatic.
Battlestar Gallactica wasn’t a game changer in the seventies, 2004 and from what I’ve seen on Peacock it won’t be a game changer now. If you like a show for the CGI, then at least you can derive some pleasure from Battlestar Gallactica, but for me, I will wait for the next Star Trek or Star Wars movie.
