Just wondering if anyone here ever watched the original Battlestar Galactica (I've never seen the new one) and if anyone read the books based on the series. I read all the ones I could get my hands on back in high school. I just loved Starbuck (the Dirk Benedict one). As I get more of my books into my LT library there will definately be some Battlestar Galactica ones in there.

Yes, I used to watch the original series, but I've never read the books or seen the new series.

I've watched both series and they are quite, quite different. I enjoyed the first one for a variety of reasons--interesting premise, cute boys, scary Cylons--but the new series is on a completely different level--much darker and more intense. Cylons can still be scary but so can humans, really, with all the twisted emotions and cross-purposes that we have even when not running for our lives from toasters. There are endless questions about who is and isn't a Cylon, what the Cylons are really up to, and, indeed, the motivations of many of the characters. Special kudos to the new version's Gaius Baltar--I keep having twinges of understanding and sympathy for him despite knowing how venal and selfish he is . . .
