Battlestar Galactica comparison
1978: Robot companion for "Boxey" (Noah Hathaway).
2004: Flesh and blood companion for "Dr Baltar" (James Callis).
Advantage: the 2004 series !!!
1978: Identical combat scenes in every episode.
2004: Cylons appear every 33 minutes.
1978: A Commander commands a capital ship and has a Colonel as XO.
2004: A Commander commands a capital ship and has a Colonel as XO.
What frack*n ships do they give a captain in the Colonial Navy? A draw.
1978: "Starbuck" (Dirk Benedict) is cute.
2004: "Starbuck" (Katee Sackhoff) is cute.
1978: "Cmdr Adama" (Lorne Greene) best known for his role in "Bonanza".
2004: "Cmdr Adama" (Edward James Olmos) best known for his roles in "Blade Runner" and "Miami Vice".
One has experience with cattle rustlers, the other with replicants, pimps and traffickers. If we had a spare Battlestar, Edward James Olmos would be our choice of commander hands-down. Seriously, how many cows have you seen in space?
Advantage: the 2004 series.
1978: A kickass theme that makes you want to kick some Cylon or Eastern Alliance butt.
2004: Morose and depressing theme that makes you want to report to the nearest Cylon for extermination.
Advantage: the 1978 series.
