Battlestar Galactica (Reimagined), known to regular fans as "BSG", is a 2003 science-fiction action adventure miniseries which re-imagines the original 1978 television series for a 21st century audience. The minisieries was intentionally produced as a "backdoor pilot" by Ronald Moore and David Eick for Universal Television, and it spawned a four season television series which culminated in 2009's series finale "Daybreak".

Notable elements of the serious are its lack of "technobabble", or reliance on technology to tell the story. BSG breaks from conventional space opera (such as Star Trek) by focusing instead on its characters and the over-arching themes of the series, which are primarily war, religion, politics and human motivation.

The series is also notable for the prevalence of episodes which further the story-arc, with very few stand-alone episodes, its complex mythology and storyline, deep character development, and its strong attention to physical continuity.

BSG received strongly positive critical reception from mainstream critics and publications, including Time and Rolling Stone, and is popular with audiences who do not traditionally watch science fiction.

Eat your heart out Star Trek! (my review for the first season)
I'd like to make a little disclaimer before going on. I've never been a sci fi (sorry, SyFy) geek, not in the least bit. Oh, I've enjoyed my fair share of it, from Star Trek to Star Wars, and I've enjoyed it a lot, but I've never been a geek or nerd for either show. Oh sure, the original Star Wars series was amazing, and still a favorite of mine, and Star Trek has some great films too (The Final Frontier, First Contact, and the newer film come to mind) but the prequels ruined Star Wars for me, and …

I think it's fair that I should start this review by mentioning that the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica is my favourite TV series of all time. I should also mention that despite outward appearances, I also really a big nerd. :) That said, I think Battlestar, or "BSG" as some of us affectionatly know it, really does break the mould by offering something to anyone who enjoys a great story and deep character development.    Like all really good science fiction, BSG uses a fictional …
