Well, as with all these "revival" thingys, I'll believe them when I see them on the long-range scanners.

The only thing I saw that was really interesting was this quote from one of the articles:
"It will be interesting to see where Simon Kinberg takes the source material, though one has to imagine he'll be taking more from Glen A. Larson's original vision for the TV series back in the late 1970s and early 1980s."

Not sure why the writer of the article would say that, but at least it's a thought in the right direction...

We should feed the critics to the Ovions!

GINO, Take 2. Once again the Cylons are the good guys saving the Universe from the evil Humans!

And what a joke to see this item that tries to shoehorn the original series into the philosophy of the original GINO.

"The Cycle of Time is a sequence of events in the Battlestar Galactica franchise that repeats itself, seemingly forever. The original Battlestar Galactica series and the 2004 SyFy series are both different iterations of that cycle, and it is possible that not even the Peacock remake could escape the cycle."

Stuff like this just offers me a reminder of why time will never heal the wounds no matter how much I wish it could be otherwise. Not when the legacy of what made Galactica special and enduring to me is continually run-down because of the GINO take so that ultimately GINO is the default interpretation of what it's all about.

Some "visionary" producer wanting to stamp their image on another man's creation. Just basically a little kid screaming "Mine! Mine!" writ large.

OMG! If THAT is what this new TV series is going to be...forget it!! Another humans are evil and are destroying their planets mantra.

You know, in TOS, the humans were the GOOD guys and their planets were beautiful! It was the gaul-monging tin-headed Cylons that destroyed everything!

Unfortunately most all television shows and movies now have some sort of political slant or axe to grind. Just from what I've read in the link above (thanks ernie), I will not be watching on Peacock. Will still have a "wait and see" approach on the movie...

And continuing in this vein, did you all see the news that the new OO7 Bond is going to be an African-American woman?!

Talk about changing things up!

There hasn't been a real Bond film since Pierce Brosnan as far as I'm concerned. I hated all the Craig ones.

PC has truly run amok. What other horrors are they planning? Dare I even say?
Maybe it's a good thing Sean Connery isn't here to see this travesty.
Requiescat in pace, Sir Sean.
