    Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.

    While it doesn't offer any answers, it both thrills and makes you think.

    Don't believe the hype. This show contains no real characters, no real story and no real drama. It is devoid of humor. The Miniseries was quite good - it started with archetypes and a real story. The series didn't stick to it. It completely failed on every level. Even the CGI in the later seasons became bad. The character motivations don't make much sense and the constant personality changes prevent the viewer from immersing himself/herself into the story. Plot shield and immortality kicks in quite soon, there are no permanent deaths until season 4, just characters saved at the last moment, some are even resurrected. The raiders lose their ability to fire their missiles in the series, so every third episode contains like 7 vipers battling 300 raiders without any loses. What's worse - the human pilots are smiling and don't take the action seriously, which takes away from the supposed drama. You can imagine what they did with some of the more subtle topics like interpersonal relationships. It's like watching a story about adult psychology written by toddlers.The plot is quite demented actually, just a quick look: The admiral (Adama) gives 1 of his 5 nukes to Baltar without disarming it (Baltar "wants" the plutonium) and Adama has no guards guarding the nuke, even though he knows of Cylon operatives in the fleet (they broke into Galactica's armory and used stolen explosives). Later, Baltar gives the nuke to a terrorist organization (there is actually no plot leading up to this nonsense..) and a Cylon nukes part of the fleet (Roslin tells Adama that Gaius Baltar is a Cylon agent in the very same episode). No one raises an eyebrow and the plot forgets this utter stupidity within several minutes. There's no way they wouldn't find out/wouldn't have found out what happened in the following 40 episodes, so the writers just delete this event from the show. By the way - Galactica can detect nukes on other ships (via some magic)....The series was one giant Deus Ex Machina with the most Deus Ex Machina ending(s) in the history of Sci-Fi. Avoid at all costs or your brain will burst into flames!

    Problem with IMDb reviews is that they go for the whole show, not the individual seasons. This show starts really good. I'd give it a 8 or 9. Then it all slowly dwindles down into quite incoherent mess and ends up with a disappointing finale with a bit of Lost syndrome. It's overall worth watching but it will leave you with a bitter taste at the end.

    This is a struggle. The acting is so bad. Why can't i hear the dialogue? speak up! Tricia Helfer is sexy? Her implants are too big and too fake. Yeah it's mean but still true. Grace Park - Lt. Sharon 'Boomer' Valeri needs acting lessons. Wowza she is bad. Edward James Olmos stop mumbling this isn't Miami Vice. Lee 'Apollo' Adama is a whining cry baby. Needs to be smacked! The CGI was second rate at best. A disappointment.
