Battlestar Galactica "reboot" movie in the works

... and thankfully, it doesn't appear it will follow the "reimagined" SyFy series starring Edward James Olmos as Adama. Why do I say "thankfully?" Well, if you've been following Colossus since near the beginning you'd know I started out a huge fan of the "reimagined" series, but quickly lost interest around early season three when stories began to make little-to-no sense.

While the 2004 series was "grittier," the original 1978 series was much more optimistic (if you can call a series about the near-annihilation of humankind "optimistic"), with one of its last (two-part) episodes being a barely-veiled battle in the war between God and Satan. That, and the original wasn't a Terminator-esque "human created their own destruction" meme in that the Cylons were originally a reptilian race that had begun dying out, and hence created robotic replacements. The Cylon Imperious Leader was one of the few -- only, perhaps -- lizard Cylon remaining alive.

Count me in for a film based in the original BSG universe.

As someone who prefers the original to the newer series (as I mentioned at my blog once), I look forward to this movie.

Thanks for sharing that.
I never cared mich for Moore, Ron's series. TOS Galactica was a representation of human potential and showed the best Mankind. GINO (Galactica In Name Only) not only had humans that were very much like us, so were the Cylons!!

Thanks for chiming in, Rich. I totally agree with you. Carl and I had a brief e-mail discussion about this w/regards to Star Trek. Despite many head scratching moments in its many incarnations, it represents a vibrant and positive view of humans and humanity where just about every other race in the galaxy strives to be like us (or, at least, the Federation), not the other way around.

Or, the message is that they should be like us. I mean, just look at the Federation's immediate neighbors: The Romulans are akin to a emperor-led Roman Empire (no surprise, given their name); the Cardassians are a military junta, and the Klingons are like our current Arab world -- a formerly enlightened civilization now largely regressed.
