I watched Battlestar Galactica during their initial run (2003-2009). I think I’ve picked it up during the second season or something and I watched the last 3 seasons as they were launched on TV.
Last week I restarted watching it (yeah, I got some downtime) and I actually find it a lot more interesting than I did 15 years ago. It was interesting then as well: the dark tone of the story, the grittiness, the real development of characters, (especially compared to the Star Trek shows, which I love), but now I see it with different eyes. I feel I’m more interested in the politics of the show rather than in the space battle scenes or the science-fiction elements.
I just got through the first season of the show (not even, I still have the final 2 episodes), but I’m happy I wasn’t that much of a fan, because I barely remember anything. Which makes the experience almost like I’m seeing the show for the first time. And that’s great. Because who other can say “I’m watching Battlestar Galactica for the first time, the second time”?
