When I was 10 years old and in sixth grade back in 1978, all my geek friends and I were totally absorbed in Battlestar Galactica. No other television show captured my imagination like it did, and very few shows since have. I've seen a few episodes since I've grown up, and while they now seem incredibly campy, they still bring back fond memories.

Now the SciFi channel is bringing out a Battlestar Galactica mini-series. I have some serious misgivings about this, especially since they've turned Starbuck and Boomer into female characters, and the Apollo character seems to be considerably wussified. It starts tonight, and I'll give it a try if nothing else to check out the special effects. They'll have to go a long way to convince me that changing Starbuck to be a female was a good idea, though.
