    Looks like someone else has taken up the job since Bryan Singer pulled out to do X-Men 2 ...
    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (4-hour miniseries)
    SCI FI re-imagines the groundbreaking and beloved series in which "a rag, tag fugitive fleet'' of the last remnants of mankind searches for its true home. Fleeing the aliens responsible for the slaughter of their homeworld, the Battlestar Galactica survivors must meet a whole new set of challenges. This intriguing twist on a classic will be written by writer Ronald D. Moore (Roswell, Mission Impossible II) with Breck Eisner (Steven Spielberg's Taken; The Invisible Man) attached to direct. Distributed by USA Cable Entertainment, the project will be executive produced by David Eick (American Gothic, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Spy Game).


    YIPPEE!!!! :D
    (IF they do it right.)

    Battlestar Galactica and Knight Rider (hopefully) ... it looks like the quality of TV shows might be on the way up (double-hopefully). :)

    Battlestar Galactica is as close as we get to a Star Wars TV series - if you ignore the hopeless later "flying motorbike" series. It even had many of the same special effects team.

    The pilot episode is available on DVD (I bought it when I got the Episode I DVD), and the entire series boxed set is due about June. I still need to buy a DVD player though. :(


    Currently Knight Rider is (hopefully) a film, but David Hasselhoff is/was trying to get a new series AND a cartoon series as well.

    It's ALWAYS puzzled me how many actors think they can sing, and many singers think they can act ... and how many can't do either. ?[face_plain]


    Yes, YouAgain, "Knight Rider" is a talking car - the original series is being repeated on TV4 at 7:30pm, Sunday nights, clashing with Prime TV's "Enterprise". :(

    I remember Knight Rider (wasn't a big fan)

    I LOVED MacGyver! (wants complete DVD set when I have enough $)

    "Maybe ACE too" - ace is 15 - of course him too! :p

    Short for Francis I believe.

    Now, our stuntman Dar Robinson will jump 50 busses on a motobike, and after the break more dominoes tumble, and then the handicapped kid of the week who can paint stuff and recite pi to 50 decimal places!

    Next week, the pac-man challenge...
