The new Battlestar Galactica is a stunning drama that surpasses the original 70's cheese.
The two Battlestar Galactica series both begin in the same way with similar precepts – the end of a civilisation and the possible extinction of the human species.

The original chose to be lightweight in dealing with this underlying theme (the first thing they do post-apocalypse is go to a party planet) - the new series actually attempts to deal with the issue in an adult manner.

The writing, direction, and most importantly the acting, is superb - each combining to create emotional depth.

As a teen I enjoyed the original but (sorry to get Biblical) "when I was a child I spoke as a child, I acted as a child – now I must put childish things behind me".

The sex of the characters does not offend – it does not cause grief to find two key characters to be stunningly female. It doesn't even offend that a potential bad guy has a British accent.

Just enjoy. Drama really doesn't get much better than this.

Trivia

The rank structure for the officers serving in the Colonial Fleet are as follows: OFFICERS: Admiral, Commander, Colonel, Major, Captain, Lieutenant, Lieutenant (junior grade), Ensign. ENLISTED: Master Chief Petty Officer, Chief Petty Officer, Petty Officer (1st, 2nd Class), Specialist, Deck Hand, Recruit. There are also Marines aboard Galactica which conform more closely to the traditional enlisted Marine ranks, with Sergeants, Sergeants-Major, etc. Unresolved is the question of whether the Marine officers would also adhere to the mixed rank structure.


Quotes

President Laura Roslin: Maybe if he's more comfortable he'll be a little easier to deal with.
Billy Keikeya: That's smart.
President Laura Roslin: No, it's not smart. It's politics.


Goofs

Despite the fleet population being 50,000 people, the number on President Roslin's "White Board" is updated to only reflect changes in military/ govt personnel, but not births & deaths of the civilian population at large. Actually, this is not true and Roslin is seen adding the birth of a new born baby in an early episode. Additionally, the 10,000 people lost on New Caprica were mostly civilians.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the closing credits, there is a different, short cartoon skit of the two producers, Ronald Moore and David Eick, which usually ends with one causing the death of the other in some imaginative way.


Alternate Versions

For the first season, the British and American versions had different opening credit themes, and in certain American-version episodes, the episode title was shown after the previous episode's recap while in the British version it was not.
