The new "Battlestar Galactica" is joyless, somber and a little boring.

The project might all be an exploitative departure from the ''Battlestar Galactica'' brand name, but it's hard not to like where the spacemen (and spacewomen) are going.

The result is surprisingly good, with a strong character driven story that leaves you wanting more.

The success of the miniseries gave momentum for the weekly series. I hope the series is as enjoyable as this.

There's plenty more that could be picked out here, but the one other thing I wanted to focus on was the ending. This was scream-at-the-telly good, and what great cliffhangers are all about.

As is appropriate for this more jaded era, the story is much more grim and edgy. Now if I can just get used to Starbuck being a girl . . .

I think we were all perfectly content with our vague memories of shag hairdos... there will always be DVD to remind us how bad the original series was. We certainly didn't need a bad new series to drive the point home.
