Am planning to buy DVD on Battlestar Galactica.
Last year, me and my housemate was glued watching the rerun on season 1 and 2 of the stories at Astro.
Tried to follow the stories when the tv8 channel started to aired the series, but come on la...1 hr per nite? With my goldfish memories syndrome, I much prefer to watch the series marathon like. Plus, I can pause when the urgent requirements arose. Hehehe.
Anyway, we have actually 2 version of the series, the first one starting 1978 and the new series starting 2003.
Quite a few differences......being among the most notable are a few main characters had been changed to women, Starbuck, Boomer and the President. Tho Starbuck still kept a few masculine characteristics such as her love for cigars.
The main plot....argh...go and read it from the linx below :
But I do say that the portrayal of a post-apocalyptic civilization is quite real. The story do make me think, are we stupid enough to create a kind of AI robot that will take our place? I'm sure that we are NOT that stupid (sniggering...cough..Terminator...cough).
Also, althought space are vast, it is not really infinite. How far can you run? Especially being a Cylon they can duplicate themselves with all the memories intact. Might as well lay down and plan for a revolt later (I know, I know...too much Dune - The original Jihad)
Anyway, I think the Cylons are really hot. Just look at Boomer and Number Six...Six really Sizzles...
Honey, if by becoming a Cylon, I can be that hot!!? Yeah, downloading my mind now!!! (Hope to God that I can be a Cylon, not changed to become another crazy guy aka Lawnmowerman!!)

The race of man shall perish, but the eyes
Of trilobytes eternal in stone,
And seem to stare about in mild surprise
At changes greater than they have yet known.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
