I don't understand how it can't have the unremitting grimmness. Its the end of the world, the end of civilization. Even as a child I loved the oBSG but it occurred to me at 5, how lightly they treated what was such a dire situation.

If anything RDM's version wasn't grim enough.
Even at the end of the world, if there is life...life goes on.

I LOVE RDM's take on BSG...but I don't agree his approach is the only one possible.
Yeah but just think of America after 9/11. Now imagine that instead of the twin towers, every skyscraper in New York was destroyed. Now the entire city of New York. The entire east coast. The whole nation. The whole continent. The whole hemisphere. The whole planet. The whole planet and 11 others just like it.

The analogy was 9/11 but in reality it would be many orders of magnitude more traumatic, more grim, more harrowing.
