So in fact the thread title should be "Galactica un-re-imagining"
See what happens when you vote Democrat? You get happy camp 70s movies about the annihilation of humanity instead of grim/dark drama. Obama gets you Daggits, Bush gets you snapping babies necks.
Note if you take that seriously actually try to turn this thread into a political debate I will show up where you live and deliver a Mordhau to your face
Honestly, what the franchise needs is another 15 years or so and another re-boot after that. A show at that time that's maybe a little less grimdark in having characters a bit more "noble" (i.e. most of the characterization in the new show honestly doesn't work, but the actors make it work, they'd be washed out of anything other than a Somalian militia, it's one thing to show a degradation over time, but they should start out a bit more squeaky clean even if they're the misfits before being washed out, modeling the characterization more after one character done right, Gaeta, where they start by-the-book and innocent and after two years on the run perjure themselves and are willing to commit heinous acts while blinding themselves with their idealism works)
But such a new reboot should be keeping the harsh realities of the '00s series (having to abandon thousands without FTL drives, sacrificing people to stop a fire, etc.). ...and a more coherent, cohesive, mythology that can actually be delivered on as opposed to the convoluted self-destructing myth-arcs typical of late 90s early 00s shows.
The best show would be tricking you into thinking it's a "naturalistic scifi" version of the original series (Adama, Apollo, and Starbuck all as role models) and then over the years turning it into an utterly soul-crushing story where everything they believe is wrong and humanity is not only doomed but must die to set things right.
The end of the series making Moore and Larson crying in the corner like Tobias Funke wishing that the new-age hokey BSGod or the Ships of Light could Deus Ex Machina the Rag Tag Fleet out of danger, but being a REAL naturalistic sci-fi show, no such plot devices would exist
...and yes I've had my Cavilistic rage towards the BSGod since head six appeared in the miniseries. Doesn't stop a lot of the show from working, but does go against the whole premise of a non-technobabble, solid look into human nature.
