Galactica 1980 – Episodes 6 – 10 Review

Galactica 1980 P2

Galactica 1980 comes to a close already, though given the “quality” I’m not really surprised the show fell flat on its face. Just like the first five there are a few brief ideas that work, but far too much that doesn’t, apart from the last episode, which focuses on Starbuck from the Original Series, that’s actually good! Hooray! Let’s take a closer look at the end of the original Battlestar Galactica run…

Galactica 1980 – Episodes 1 – 5 Review

G1980 P1

After a break from Galactica I’m back to finish off the original run… admittedly I took the break because I’d heard how back Galactica 1980 was and wasn’t in a hurry to dive in, and I can say that… it’s pretty bad, but not quite the end of us all that I was lead to believe. That being said, the first three episodes are one story, and episodes 4 and 5 are similarly linked (and are far, far worse than the first three…) so maybe it just keeps getting worse from here… Hooray?! Let’s take a look…

Battlestar Galactica – The Original Series Episodes 19 – 24 Review

BSG TOS P4

My journey through the original Battlestar Galactica comes to an end (well, until I tackle the apparently awful Galactica 1980 at some point…) as I finish off the one solitary season of the show. Oddly the first four episodes (well, three really as 19 and 20 are one story) have a complete lack of Cylons, or indeed robots at all! Still on the plus side Boxey has seemingly been written out, so hooray! Let’s take a closer look at the last four stories of the original Battlestar Galactica…

Battlestar Galactica – The Original Series Episodes 14 – 18 Review

BSG TOS P3

My first watch through of the original Battlestar Galactica series continues with the third quarter of episodes. We have a fun and varied batch here, with some good, often safe, stories to tell… apart from War of the Gods, a two-parter that deals with literal races of angel-like beings and the devil… More can be found below!

Battlestar Galactica – The Original Series Episodes 8 – 13 Review

BSG TOS P2

My first watch of the original series continues, and it’s amazing how one show can shift tones so quickly and jarringly as this. Seriously, from the comedy of Episode 10, the children’s TV-ness of Episode 11 and the great and seriously toned space opera of Episodes 12 and 13, it’s a complete mish-mash! Still, some great stuff to be watched, though.

Battlestar Galactica – The Original Series Episodes 1 – 7 Review

BSG OS1

I was going to do my first ever re-watch of the 2000s remake, but then I thought it would be more fun to watch the original series first, then go into the remake with a whole new perspective from when I first saw it. The original series couldn’t be any more 70s if it tried, and is extremely… Star Wars-y, but it does have some originality and a few plus points. Let’s take a closer look (on Blu-Ray no less!)
