Re: Talk of Bryan Singer's BSG project resurfaces

Well life is going to get a bit more interesting around here.

Wouldn't it be funny if the movie were successful enough to spawn a TV series based on it? I wouldn't turn up my nose at it. I love Ron Moore, but I love space opera on TV more.

The nuBSG fans have to accept that our show is more or less done. We may get some drips and drabs here and there, but nothing much more of meaning.
Yeah they had their shot with Caprica, they blew it, time to move onto other things.
The oldBSG fans really, honestly, need to accept that nothing new will ever come from the old show.
Mmmm, I wonder about that. Abrams' brought back the spirit of TOS pretty effectively, without catering only to old fans. This BSG movie could do the same. Since I have no very strong opinions about what oldBSG should or shouldn't be, I'll be happy as long as it doesn't suck in the general sense.

I've thought for a while now that there's a market - in movies and on cable TV - for a kick-ass, adrenaline-pumped military space series that doesn't indulge in excessive naval-gazing and to the extent that it has any political leanings at all, leans rightwards. So if this new movie adopts that approach, they could have a surprising hit on their hands and maybe even a revived franchise.
