It really gives the same well depicted, gritty, space fiction story with a touch realism. It's also a book series which is also excellent. Third season will be airing this summer. I think you can catch the previous seasons on Netflix UK (not in the US) and Amazon Prime Video (in the US)
thanks for sharing this!

i'll def have to check this out.

and it just occurred to me - Blade Runner, especially Blade Runner 2049 after the blackout could be considered post-apocalyptic.

Did not like some of the character changes for the reboot, so I remain allegiant to the original.
i was a fan of the original as well - Lorne Green just added so much "gravitas" - i seem to remember the first few episodes were really good, then they veered off into the "alien-of-the-week" territory and sadly for me that "took" me out of the world they were trying to create. Much like the writing in The Walking Dead which shifted tone when Darabont left and now to me seems to be relying on "tricks" over character development to keep the weekly ratings up.

what appeals to me about the re-booted BSG is the focus on the human story with the technology remaining in the background. The series creator, Ron Moore spent time in the Navy and that reflects in how the crew of the Galactica act. Probably one of the many reasons the series had a strong military following. Moore decided to dispense with the "parsecs" and other made up lingo from the original series and rooted it in a reality we're familiar with so all the audience had to do was focus on the story in the comfort of familiar terms.
Those early episodes were highly praised and award winners. The network later admitted the production of the show suffered and the cancellation of the show regretted.
