Top 25 Sci-Fi TV Shows Countdown: # 2 Battlestar Gallactica

Number 2  Battlestar Gallactica  2004-2009

The Cylons are back to take out the 12 Colonies.  A small group of humans head off in search of the last 13 colony of Earth.   We have heard and seen this story before.   I remember watching the premiere episode and just being upset for the first hour and a half.  How dare they make Starbuck and Boomer girls..  this wasn't  the Battlestar Gallactica I grew up with.  How dare they mess with this great show from my past.   Then it turned the corner.  I went from being upset that it wasn't the show I grew up loving to realizing that it might be something better.  Once fully immersed into this new version it grew and developed into one of the best shows on TV. Battlestar Gallactica delved into many modern day issues in the coolest of Sci-Fi settings.  The cylons were much more than just a bunch of tin-cans they were much more complex.  The show had cool twists and great characters and storylines and a conclusion that satisfied.   The cast was excellent.  James Edward Olmos as Adama and James Callis as Baltar especially.  I could go on and on about everything that made Battlestar so damn good.......but the fact that it is number 2 on my list says it all.      "So say we all"
