    She HOT

    And she can act

    I do hope that it is not to post modern , and it maintains the sincerity of the originals . I am looking for the same thing that happend with star treck and the great job that the :TNG crew did.

    Christopher Ecclestone is a brilliant actor , i hope he does not dissapoint.

    All the signs are right , but the BBC are always capable of F**king things up.

    They should re-make Blakes 7. Cheesy effects but some great story lines and it had Avon in it, what more could a girl ask for?

    why whats wrong with that...

    The original series is ok but the :TNG was a lot better . Better budget , bigger ideas , better scripts .

    More than Kirk ripping his shirt off or Mr spock saying ilogical every five minutes. Do you no what GNDN means well thats what the original series did..

    Sorry dude, I just hate Star Trek. Plain and simple. It's shite. Over-sentimental, infantile plots, imperialist American drivel, terrible acting, awful characterisation..... *shudder*. I tried to like it. I really wanted to like it. But.... *shudder*. Now Bablyon 5.... that was good sci-fi!

    Oooh, but I did like the Wrath of Khan and the original motion picture. All went downhill from there though :(

    Ok it has its faults ... and you may be right . But it has given me a lot of pleasure and its not as bad as you say.

    Babylon 5 , is better and i can agree that there is a lot of diffrence between them . and i can understand what your saying.

    I thought Babylon 5 was brilliant and G'Kar (Andreas katsulas) was the best character (he did star trek as well so it can't be that bad ;) ). It did dissapoint nearer the end but don't they all. I think if you combined the 2 then you would have the best darn sci fi out there.

    I liked Dr Who until I was about 11

    Infact I was obsessed

    And Red Dwarf (which I still like :p)

    And Hitch hiker's Guide to the Galaxy

    OK I'm sad and probably shouldn't have admitted any of this :p

    Battlestar Galactica

    There. I said it.

    I mean the original, of course. None of the Galactica 1980 or the new remake of it. The remake sucks, and the big shame is that it had so much promise.

    In my humble opinion, this is why the remake sucks: it's too Earthy. We're talking about a race of humans from the far reaches of the galaxy. So why is it filled with Earth expressions? We hear references to God (then some other reference to the Lords of Kobel, the 'gods' of the religion of the original Galactica series, which confuses me even more)...there's a President and Vice President (we see a scene where a woman is sworn in as President - and I'm sure the oath is the same as the American one). Is this Caprica, or America we're talking about?

    The scene where the female Cylon agent tells Baltar about the Cylon invasion...very impressive plot twist. The guy who plays Baltar does a very good job of showing his sudden panic and confusion. Then he reaches for...his mobile phone. That's the atmosphere fucked - we're back on Earth.

    I'm not saying that all sci-fi should be a million miles removed from this world. I just wish that the makers of Battlestar Galactica 2003 tried to use their imaginations a bit more...

    I kinda enjoyed the remake. Bit of a guilty pleasure, but it wasn't too bad. Coulda been a lot better though. There were plot holes you could drive a tank through! Respect to them for sneaking Firefly in there though....

    according to a rumour...slipknot are interested in doing the new version of the dr who theme tune....
    so at least the first minute will be funny...and then i can turn it off...but then i'll need to turn it back on for the end bit

    "fuck me...look at the size of that future alien robot thing"

    *cue hilarious slipknot remake*

    just like eastenders...which by the way...should also have a theme tune remake by slipknot...just imagine the drums...

    "fuck me...i never knew you were my sister"

    *cue hilarious slipknot remake*
