Battlestar Galactica, the original Star Wars cash-in attempt that failed? (video)

We think kindly of Battlestar Galactica, now, but that’s mainly due to the seminal reboot. Of course, the Battlestar Galactica franchise began with the American science fiction television series Battlestar Galactica, created by Glen A. Larson in 1978 to milk the Star Wars movie craze. It was extremely costly, short-lived, and engulfed in lawsuits and […]

Ronald D. Moore Battlestar interview (video).

Ronald D. Moore is interviewed about his reboot of the Battlestar Galactica TV series, itself now – dare we say it – a classic. Despite attempts to revive the series over the years, none came to fruition until it was reimagined in 2003 by Universal Television as Battlestar Galactica, a three-hour miniseries.

Battlestar Galactica reboot reboot coming, from Sam Esmail (of Mr. Robot-fame).

A Battlestar Galactica ‘reboot reboot’ is coming, from Sam Esmail of Mr. Robot-fame as part of the new streaming service from NBC Universal launching April 2020. Mixed feelings about this one. Is rebooting a reboot just diluting the clone gene pool a little too much? Also, Peacock, another new pay-to-view streaming service? On the other […]

By Your Command: The Unofficial And Unauthorised Guide To Battlestar Galactica Volume 1 by Alan Stevens and Fiona Moore (book review).

‘By Your Command’ is an above-average example of an unauthorised guide to a popular series, in much the same way that the original ‘Battlestar Galactica’ itself was an above-average example of Science Fiction TV show. While it has its flaws, certainly, ‘By Your Command’ is thoughtful and deep, offering not just detailed facts about the […]
