A Very Dark Revision of the Original SeriesRating: 7 likes, 3 dislikes
Loosely based on the 1970s TV series, the 21st century version has little in common with the original. Rather than relying on the not so cheap fall back of special effects, the new series starts off with an excellent pilot with great background music and sets the foundation for the development of each of the characters that will appear in the up going three seasons so far. Each character has profound human traits and personalities that you may enjoy or hate.
The focus of this new series is mostly on the characters and their personalities [or personality disorders as the case maybe].
Very very interestingly, as the series enters the fourth season, many views identify more closely and empathize with the cyborg cylons and dislike the humans.
My hat is tipped to the screen writers.... really I did not know how they were going to pull off a fourth season! Kudos!
