Yea its been a sad year for Sci-Fi fans. I recently just started watching the '78 series on DVD. I need to finish it. BSG was a show that made a huge impression on six year old boy.
I really enjoyed his character in the reimagined series too. I'm glad that he at least got his wish in one respect, he spent so much time trying to resurrect BSG, when the studio pitched the new series he got to participate. He'll forever be immortalized.
