Yeah, calling nuBSG "a remake in name only" doesn't make sense. It was a remake, a reimagining, and a reboot, all.
Yep. Exacty so. I've seen most of the original Galactica
and all of the remake, and the notion that Moore's version paid only lip service to Larson's is a non-starter.
It helps, of course, to actually pay enough attention to a thing to critique it with some accuracy, if one's determined to critique at all.
