I really don’t have any criticisms of how the original 1970s Battlestar Galactica was reimagined in this version; it is very cleverly done and well scripted. Visually it has held up well despite now being 10 years old.
This is not to say that this version of Battlestar Galactica is bad.
Artistically I would rate this as a vast improvement on the cheesy original , and I think this version deserves a fair degree of respect.
There were certainly moments, particularly towards the end with Commander Adama and President Roslin, that resonated with me but these moments were relatively few and far between.
Overall I think I recommend the Battlestar Galactica miniseries as a “watch once, and keep going if you enjoy it”.
I didn’t really enjoy it all that much, so I’ll stop here (but don’t let that stop you).
