When I was little, I could look at the TV and the ink, "he looks like me'.  Except for the costume. And the dog costume. Is dog washing a thing?

The only BSG toys I had as a kid were a daggit and a some awesome mini-scale version of the Viper, made by some other company or something. I dunno. Had a little 1 inch moveable pilot.

How could someone purport to be a fan of the original Battlestar Galactica and NOT know that?

I had no idea it was monkey in a suit. Thought it was an animatronic prop or something like that.
Still consider the 1978 Galactica the only version worth a damn. That Moore torture porn version is umwatchable.

I watched it first-run, loved it, and I did not know that.

Or maybe I did know it once and just forgot it.

Anyway, I'm old.

During covid I watched BSG for the first time (I missed it on the original run in the 90s) not the very first time, I caught it as a kid.

The new one had potential but sucked dagget butt.
Once I saw an interview with Moore and he's like "yeah, we just make it up as we go" "I told Lucy Lawless just look surprised when you see the off camera face, we'll figure it out over the break"

The polar opposite of good TV writing.  I see he does Dr. Quinn, time traveling medicine woman now.... good.

The newer series started airing in 2004.
Original series was aired starting 1978.
There was a Galactica 1980 show aired in 1980.
Don't know what show in the 90's you missed but it wasn't Battlestar Galactica.

Late 90s/2004.... it's all a blur.  But hey, thanks for fact checking me.
FYI (since you seem interested) I watched the original, watched the 1980, and now have watched the 2004.

Summary judgement... they all suck ass.  Science is non existent, no one has to reload, and the ending of 2004 was just fraking awful.

It was a textbook example of why you don't start a serialized TV show without knowing exactly where you want the story to go and what the character arcs are going to be. You can still change things up a bit in production if you come up with better ideas or a lucky improv accident happens.

Where the BSG reboot failed was they had no idea where they wanted to go with the show or what arcs they wanted their characters to follow. They literally just read fandom websites to see what theories the fans came up with and then wrote a script that followed none of them just so they could say "our show was so wild that not even the fans could guess where it was going". Well, yeah, you make your show such a mess of logic and contradictions so that the plot becomes garbage and yeah, you're going to surprise some people.

The fourth season of the show, particularly the last half of the fourth season was when things really fell apart because it was rushed so a lot of story points they previously set up were ignored because they'd done nothing to make them relevant to the ending. Decanonize the fourth season and you'd probably be able to pick up the series as taking place 15 years later with them still on the run from cylons and still searching for earth. This time don't dick your audience around just to show off how "clever" you were for fooling them with your convoluted plot. Have a clear path to the finish in your writer's bible and if some of your fans figure out where it is going then good for them, they picked out the clues in your writing. Pulling the rug out from under them just because you don't want them to be able to say "called it" is a dick move and makes for shiatty story telling.

I loved the 70s version as a kid, and loved the 2000s version. Plan on actually subscribing to Peacock for the new one unless I hear really really bad things.

Besides, they never could have cast a man as Starbuck the way the character was written in RDM's version.  Katee Sackhoff's Starbuck was far more masculine, abusive and had more swagger than Dirk Benedict's ever did.  Dirk's play was almost an effeminate parody of the womanizing hot shot.  Had a male actor played the new Starbuck the same way Katee Sackhoff did, the character would have come across as an unredeemable toxic male, rather than a strong take no shiat character who gave zero farks. Nobody would have taken that kind of male Starbuck seriously.  Played by a female, they viewed the character as strong and brave. It had nothing to do with the character and everything to do with the audience.

The reboot BSG was really good until they got to Kobol because they had established lore to pull from.  After that, it was all off the cuff and the only thing they knew was the idea was to eventually find Earth, sort of.

It got pretty rough, but I liked the last episode. Though I only saw it once. I enjoyed Caprica, so whatever.

I remember the character moving in an odd way and now I finally found out why.

The viper was made by Mattel. They made that, a single seat cylon raider and a couple odd interchangeable vehicles that were not in the show.

They also made 3.75 inch figures compatible with Star Wars figures.

Both Boomer and Starbuck weren't women in the original? I have a very hazy memory of seeing the original pilot from when I was under 10 years old, and I really only remember the space battles and the colonies being destroyed (and a dog being killed?), but I know there weren't any gendered Cylon. So no female characters there either.

Were there ANY women in the original show? If they did the whole Pegasus arc I can't imagine they made Admiral Cain female. A 1978 version of Dee even?

He's wrong.  There were a number of women, non-space hookers, and in fact they had a lack of Viper pilots and had to train women to fly them.

No, but when your response to "Were there any women on the show?" is a dismissive "Space hookers", everyone's going to read that as "All the women on the show were space hookers".
