Who are they going to get that can out-Adama Edward James Olmos?

There's only one Bill Adama as far as I'm concerned. If he's not in it I'm not watching.

And to a lesser extent the whole of the rest of the cast  ;)

Exactly. The re-imagined series was simply put; amazing for me. The cast were perfect. I cant really see me taking a liking to this one. But ill reserve my judgement for later, until more news comes out.

Starbuck should be a man, and Apollo a girl. That'll rile them up ;)

One thing to shoot your hypothesis down Slayer:
The Show that Shall not be named was under Reagan.

Death squads and daggits!

Better yet, a female commander Adama?
In order to find his equal, an Irishman is forced
to talk to God.

There are three types of people in this world: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen and those who wonder what happened.

Why won't they reboot... say... Wing Commander, instead of re-doeing something that is still fresh in everybody's mind, in a good way?

The Wing Commander series kinda falls into its own niche genre.  The "anthro" community isn't necessarily prominent enough in the film industry to condone a reboot of cats in space per se, however I do agree with you that this reboot announcement is a little too soon in terms of trying to re-brand something that was never broken to begin with.  Albeit, with budget approvals, production time, writing and casting, there's still a lot of steps missing in this equation, but it definitely feels fishy.  Realistically, we might be seeing the movie released in two to three years from now, which will give all of us fans plenty of time to really dig into the news and determine whether it's "good" or "bad."   Now that the show is over, I think this kind of news is a good thing for breathing life into the BSG franchise as a whole, it definitely got me thinking about Diaspora.

Re: Galactica re-re-imagining
I'm not really seeing it.

Cavil: The plan is, everything blows up a week ago. We travel back in time and give advanced technologies to the Nazis, the humans all fly around on invisible motorcycles, and the universe gapes in what-the-frak-ery.

Re: Galactica re-re-imagining
This show was, in retrospect, over for me ever since Jane Espenson came on board and the great writing clusterfrak of Season 3 post-Exodus began.

The old writers did what they could to salvage it, but with Espenson and Angeli on board, the show's consistency just vanished.

Not looking forward to the huge retcon fest that The Plan looks to be.

Give The Plan a chance :P. (Although, the cylons gave the plan a chance, and look where it got them...)

If it was THAT bad im sure Admiral Adama himself wouldn't be the director

Re: Galactica re-re-imagining
The two episodes he directed weren't exactly stellar. Pretty okay, but not stellar.

Re: Galactica re-re-imagining
To be honest for me BSG was firing on all cylinders when it was about an aircraft carrier in space.  The Miniseries, Season 1 and 2 were by far the strongest in my opinion with the Battle of the Rez being the pinnacle.

The show never went bad, it was just hard to keep up so constant level of awesome.

Re: Galactica re-re-imagining
There were some beautiful, lyrical episodes in the back half of the show, and taken on their own, many of them are incredible. They just didn't come together into a complete story very well.

True that, once basic survival became easy for the show, it seemed to slip a little.
basicially after new caprica, if i were to say it jumped the shark, it would be when peggy rams a basestar, then kills another one WITH ITS HANGAR.
and the finale is best summarized in their stage card: frakking hippies.

Re: Galactica re-re-imagining
Well, I'd agree, for seasons 1-2, and the first four episodes of Season 3.
