More On Remakes
The impending return of the new Battlestar Galactica to the SciFi Channel rather forces me to make one more comment of The Summer Of Remakes. How is that with all the money and star power Hollywood has to throw at movie making, a television series has to show them how it's done when it's done right? The new Galactica is brilliant. It's not a rehash; it's a re-imagining of the old Galactica universe with very good actors (Edward James Olmos is dead, solid perfect as Adama) and excellent special effects.
It's very dark befitting the situation and just a damn good watch. It's one of my few regets when considering that I don't have cable. Actually, SciFi Channel is very good at producing miniseries. "Stargate SG-1" is one of the syndicated shows I make it a point to watch. The episode where Anubis is wiped out: Best. Episode. Evar.
