I used to have my usual love/hate relationship with the original Battlestar - a relationship which soured dreadfully when they got to Earth with those awful jetbikes and that dagget-thing...but there was a certain "camp" value to be had from the "disco death robots" and the sight of an increasingly Brando-esq (at least in terms of waistline) Lorne Greene in a blue velour tracksuit, and I admit I had a certain fondness for the show despite the bad scripts, lack of pace and dreadful haircuts. So the new series comes as a great surprise - gritty, tensely plotted with some intriguing ideas explored. I particularly love the way the writers are not afraid to run an entire episode without a fight scene, the redesign of the cylons (despite the cheesy CGI and their unfortunate resemblance to malevolent Alessi can-openers) works ok, and the cylons masquerading as humans adds an uncomfortable edge of paranoia to the series, an edge well exploited by some excellent writing obviously aiming at some of the domestic policy excesses in the US post 9/11. Not so sure on the religous connations - whilst I'm the first to bring the little lucifers & a bic to any auto de fe aimed at the overly religious, so far it's all been a little heavy-handed...we'll see as it's early days yet.

The casting is impeccable, with a real sense of truth to the relationships and characters portrayed, especially the grizzled warrior Adama (no velour thank Yog!), the mad Balthazar and the extremely attractive Boomer, and even the incidental characters feel like they have real bite to them. With a bit of luck this could end up being the new B5 - certainly the first season so far compares very favourably with any SF series first season, with maybe the exception of the excellent Farscape. Definitely a show to watch!

Sorry to derail my own thread, but I've been catching up on Season 3 of Farscape lately - it's great stuff! I definitely think that Battlestar is up there with Farscape. I just hope it doesn't meet the same tragic demise ...
