Thing is, BSG is about the last remnants of humanity fleeing for their lives after their homeworlds are obliterated. That's not exactly a cheerful topic. It's supposed to be dark and depressing. And while nuBSG at times got a bit too dreary, it felt much more natural than "Our homes have just been destroyed and our loved ones slaughtered. Let's hit the Space Casino."
When they went there they had no idea there as a casino there nor did they do that every week.
Not only that, but the fans of Moore's version who dismiss the original conviently ignore the fact that Carrilon was hiding Ovions who were kidnapping a eating humans in the lower levels.
Hardly a happy situation.
