Okay, I am taking online courses and have not been to the theater recently. I hope to see Avatar before it leaves the big screen. . .
Anyway, Netflix sent Battlestar Galactica, the miniseries that launched the 2004 TV series, this weekend.
Wonder why the alien robot created by humans always has to be a sexy blonde female hangin all over the villain. Why?
Why does the strong female always have to act like a guy, fight like a guy, and look like a guy? Just asking.
Well, one saving grace -- The one that made me stick with it and watch it all the way through -- Edward James Olmos. Love this guy. And, his portrayal of Commander Adama just endeared me to him all the more.
Commander Adama lost a son. His other son blames him for the brothers death. As the human race is on the brink of extinction, Commander Adama must take charge of the entire human future. EJO, as always, is believable and a genius. Loved this character.
I do have to warn about the idol worship in this story. They pray to the "gods of Kobol", a very new age type of worship. I didn't enjoy that at all. . .
I don’t have words to describe the soundtrack -- Lots of brilliant drums accompanying the space battles. I wonder if I can find it and buy it.
I did like the plot, and, of course, loved the sci fi cinematography.
I don't know that I will rent any more of this series. I think I have spent all the time I need to on the Battlestar Galactica.
Have you seen this? What do you think?
