Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

You'd probably be best of taking that to the Battlestar Galactica forum, Dusty. Personally, I thought Muir's book, which I received for Christmas and read over the holidays was interesting, but also quite flawed. Here, too, he blows a lot of things out of proportion, like one use of "Jesus!" that was improvised on-set by Michael Hogan and never heard on the series again, and ignores some of the facets of his own argument (sometimes the hawkishness of the original Galactica is an asset, sometimes it's a source of criticism in his argument). He goes on to make the usual gallery of "GINO" complaints, bemoaning the series' use of American political commentary (even though the original did the same, only in the era of the cold war).

But, then again, I've managed to enjoy both Babylon 5 and Battlestar Galactica (new and old), so what do I know?
