    All three answers were from having watched the new show and guessing at things from the original, since I never watched the original.

      It’s…OK. It hasn’t aged well, but the effects were solid for 1970’s TV. Plus Lorne Green and John Colicos were wonderful. One wonders what might have been if not for the writers’ strike that killed it.

      But in the name of all that’s good and holy, don’t watch Galactica 80 (save for the final episode).

        Not to mention the steadily declining ratings, the high price of the show, the mediocre-to-poor writing, George Lucas’s lawsuit….

        I was appalled to realize I did far better on this one than I did on Doctor Who, but there was only a season (and the dumb, short-lived spin-off) from which to draw questions. The show had potential, eventually realized by the re-envisioned version, but, man….

        Incidentally, you could also argue that Baltar was supposed to be die in the first episode, since that’s what the first theatrical version, released in various places in the summer of ’77, before the series debuted, showed. The comic-book adaptation follows that version. However, the series never played it that way.
