Critic Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries
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.
It's a type of world-building best-suited to endless franchises-the multi-book series, the film trilogy, the serialized television show. The detail is there for richness, not for third-act plot expediency.
The strength of this series is the way its characters each choose to react to this untenable situation.
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.
Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries
This breathtaking miniseries that started the exceptional TV series features a steady direction, great dialogue and elegant long takes, while also raises many moral issues with intelligence and keeps the focus always on the characters and on the human aspect of the battle.
This three hour miniseries is absolutely stunning in so many ways I don't even know where to begin. It puts us in the middle of a world with a complex history. It, unapologetically, launches the story straight away. I like the fact it assumes we know this fictitious world. It forces you to keep paying attention, as there is a lot going on. History, plot, characters, twists and turns are all crammed into 180 minutes, but it doesn't feel bloated or rushed. If anything, it has perfect pacing. To feel this connected and this involved with a large group of characters after just three hours is quite amazing. The large group of characters contains familiar but reliable archetypes, and more complex characters. My favorite would have to be James Callis. He portrays a selfish but conflicted man, somewhat responsible for the end of humanity. He is joined by a Jiminy Cricketesque subconscious, that takes the form of a very sexy Cyclon. Lots of terminology, politics, religious and technological debates abound. If you like your TV (or even movies) dense, well rounded, beautifully scripted, and utterly engaging, please check this out. Now if you'll excuse me, I have 4 seasons to be getting on with.
Way way way way better than I was expecting. See the series it's amazing.
Battlestar Galactica: The Miniseries Quotes
|Number 6:||"As terrible as it was [to see our people die in the civil war], beyond the reach of the Resurrection Ships, something began to change. We could feel a sense of time. As if each moment held its own significance. We began to realize that for our existence to hold any value it must end. To live meaningful lives we must die, and not return. The one human flaw that you spend your lifetimes distressing over - mortality - is the one thing...well, it's the one thing that makes you whole." -- Natalie Faust, Number Six copy and Cylon rebel faction leader|
