Audience Reviews for Battlestar Galactica: Season 1

  • Jul 16, 2021
    As long as you know you have to watch the show in order, it's the best episodic series ever.
  • Mar 11, 2021
    This is my first greater Sci-Fi TV series that I watched. At the moment I think is the best Sci-Fi show are ever made. Battlestar Galactica tells the story of how the Cylons kill most of humanity, and pursue the last dregs of it through space. Galactica is the one military ship protecting a fleet of civilian ships and travels to find earth. This is not only another show about space and starships.This show is about a people as they struggle to survive. There are no bad and no good people. Sometimes they have to make difficult decisions. Oftentimes they moral is low, but that makes them are true and you like it. The characters are awesome, all of them have a lot of depth, and are well played by the actors. Especially the character of captain Adama starring by Edward James Olmos. Adama is a great leader and a complex person. The music is incredible. The story is amazing. You must watch this.

    One of the Best Sci-Fi TV shows in the past 20 years. It's engaging and fun to watch. It's ten times better than the rubbish new Star Wars movie trilogy and the awful Star Trek Discovery.
  • Dec 02, 2020
    One of the best TV series I have ever watched. The 2004 miniseries is absolutely riveting with haunting and desperate scenes. Well developed characters who are both deeply flawed and relatable. What makes it unique as a sci-fi series is the use of religion which is crucial to the overall story. Dark, gripping and deeply philosophical in asking what it means to be truly human.

    Not sure what else to say...it really is an amazing show, not afraid to shake things up, and show quiet moments as well. And the visuals were spectacular even from the get-go.

    One of the best space drama TV series
  • Nov 02, 2020
    One of the best Sci-Fi series ever made. The fact that I keep coming back and watching every few years is a testament to quality storytelling. For anyone new, I would recommend watching in chronological order - Capria first, then BSG: Blood & Chrome, then the mini-series and finally the full Battlestar series - it's by far the most entertaining way to watch!
  • Oct 13, 2020
    Simply put one of the best Science fiction shows of all time! An absolute must watch!
  • Sep 23, 2020
    A genius reboot of something that was at best a campy genre flick. So basically the opposite of the reboots we get these days.
  • Jul 07, 2020
    When the series originally ran, I only watched it occasionally as I found it annoyingly like an unbelievable melodramatic soap opera. When it began running again recently on the Comet network, I began watching it from the start trying to get into it since I wondered why others seem to like it so much. Scenes with Olmos and McDonnel provided most of the positives IMO and at times there was excellent dialogue. Some episodes were entertaining while others reminded me of why I was originally annoyed. Some of the key characters were conveniently depending on the episode turned into overly emotional nut cases like Cally Henderson and Kara. At times they were believable but then the writers couldn't resist making them max psychos too often. Am sure many viewers loved that in Kara but I dislike crazy people and they made her too crazy at times. I'm a decades old fan of intelligent science fiction and overall the series had little to interest me science wise as the space setting was just an excuse for writers to jerk around the many emotional people that tend to like soap operas.
