    This is GREAT! I loved that show. I like how Sci-Fi brought back Battlestar Galactica. Hopefully this will be just as good!

    Wow, would love to see this... Maybe show us the original first. I loved it when it was on. Great story line for a 13yo...

    I remember the coolest thing was the evil female leader deep throating a rat. We talked about that at school for a long time...

    I liked both of the mini-series. I bought them both on VHS about 10 years ago.

    As for the series, I remember that I watched some of the episodes when they originally aired but I didn't like it. I don't remember anything specific about it, though.

    One of the problems with the TV series was that they dropped the cool voice effects for the Visitors. They just didn't sound as villainous without the rasp, so I hope we get better treatment in the new miniseries.

    I'd forgotten about that, silly thing to change too since initially it was one of the few ways to tell them apart and made infiltrating them difficult.

    Let's hope they're smarter than the first generation. They went to southern California to steal water and harvest edible bodies?

    It was just a way to save money. Just like when they re-used old footage. That was the worst. Donovan has a chase scene in The Final Battle where he's on horseback and has to escape 2 ships that are trying to shoot him. Then in the series he meets someone at the park on horseback. Gee, I wonder what's going to happen next? :rolleyes:

    I wonder how much that voice really cost.

    Though stargate does it nowadays (go-auld, or however, you spell it), but perhaps better technology makes it easier and cheaper?

    Are you referring to a thread subscription? Or are you talking about the SP alerts forum subscription that tells you about updated threads? I'm not sure how you would be getting every single post in this thread without having a subscription to the thread.
