HOPE, keeps them and me alive!Rating: 3 likes, 6 dislikes
I have watched a few episodes of the old series and just found it not entertaining, this may be because we now are used to high visual effects. This revision of Battlestar Galactica has those effects and more. The miniseries was just terrifically done; it’s no wonder why the TV series emerged. The first season was excellent and even through most of season two. Season two's finale where you were left hanging in suspense until season three was a nice sight. Sadly this is where I felt it started to go downhill. For the most part each episode in season 3 lacks that something that makes you unable to wait till the next episode. There, however, were two or three episodes that made you wonder what was going to happen next, but nothing near of what season one or two had and out of the 15 episodes so far I believe the series to be in trouble. All the actors have done a marvelous job; I just hope that the scripts start getting a little more focused on the big picture instead of all the little tiny things; that just seem to tide you over until the next episode. My one idea for it is that they get back on the road to earth.
I would like to see them make it to earth before the series ends; this is probably what mostly keeps me watching, that undying hope that they reach earth and wondering how they/we would react. I believe if this happens it might bring that flare back that we were so accustomed to.
