I know some of you are big fans of the original. Well, I did the unthinkable and watched the first part last night. So far my opinion is in the middle of the road. It certainly isn't very memorable, but it isn't complete crap either. Although, if you are a purist the changing the gender of characters from the original series is a headscratcher. On the other hand, the thing isn't as much of a departure from the original's premise as I thought it was. So far the show comes off as kind of flat and dull. The effects wor is decent and the space battles are fairly good. I will have to watch tonight before I realy make up my mind. I think its worth checking out for curiousity's sake and there are some nice nods to the original, but I'm not exactly bouncing off the walls about what I saw last night either.
