Battlestar Galactica (Miniseries)

After watching the Caprica pilot yesterday we decided to add the Galactica pilot to our list and watch it tonight. When we initially drafted our list for the project we didn’t include this because it is a three hour mini-series and not a movie, but we’ve relaxed the rules somewhat in the mean time. We’ve watched a few mini series for the project (most notably the Diskworld adaptations) so it didn’t really make sense any more not to add this.

Watching this, particularly right after watching the pilot for the follow-up prequil series, highlights for me just how astonishingly well this series started out. It is simply mind blowing. Everything about this series was perfect. I don’t want to go overboard on the superlatives so I’ll leave it at that: perfect. The writing, the acting, the music, the cast, the special effects, the meticulous production design – all combine to make one of the most compelling, intense, dramatic and powerful televisions of all time – the last season notwithstanding.
