In an amazing talk in from of the Television Critics Association that probably has some of the producers a bit on edge, Edward James Olmos, who plays Adama in the upcoming Battlestar Galactica remake on SCI FI, said that if you are a die-hard fan of the original, that he “would not advise them to watch this program. It will hurt them . . .”. Apparently only the starting premise really has been preserved – humans see their homeworld destroyed, and decide to continue to fight. Beyond that, forget about following the original series.
