Battlestar Galactica (1978)

Synoposis: Humanity gets wiped out in deep space. Adama (Lorne Greene) broods, Starbuck (Dirk Benedict) bangs a lot of chicks and wins a lot of card games, and Apollo (Richard Hatch) solves every problem he encounters by acting really, really concerned.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “The Galactica, a futuristic aircraft carrier the size of a small city, careens through a distant starfield followed by a convoy of bizarre space vehicles, all fleeing the destruction of the human race.”

What Did I Learn?: When the Cylons propose a peace treaty, hit those tin can bastards with the nearest two-by-four.

You Might Like This Movie If: You would gladly give up your day job to become a Colonial Warrior in a New York Centon.

Really?: They found a disco planet – a DISCO planet.

Rating: It’s cheesy in places, but I’m biased...Battlestar Galactica filled the sci-fi imagination gap for me in the late 1970s between Star Wars and Empire. 7.5/10 stars.

  1. Recently the 2nd series from 79-80 was on TV. You know, the one where they came to Earth with kids that could throw baseballs through barn doors. I loved the original series when I was a kid, but it is total cheese. A disco planet is pretty lame. I can't imagine SG-1 showing up on Hip-Hop planet.
