    Poor ratings. IIRC, it ran Sunday nights at 8pm and didn't do well against whatever it was up against. Remember, back then, it was ABS, CBS, PBS, and NBS only... along with HBO and local syndicated stations. But for ratings, you had to be strong against the other 2 of the big three.

    It did come back as "Galactica 1980" though... It was awful. It starred Kent McCord (Adam-12) and Dick VanDyke's kid Barry. Lorne Greene (with a beard) popped in here and there. The premise was, they reached Earth in the present. Since we weren't technologically advanced enough to offer a defense against the Cylons, they moved the fleet along. They left the 2 doofus colonial warriors on Earth with a band of orphan kids (SHARK JUMP!). Every damned episode had the government trying to find them. They allied with a plucky female reporter, but the worst part was they god damn kids. They gave them super strength for some flimsy reason. It was a trainwreck and deserved the cancellation they got after one miserable season. There was ONE semi-decent episode at the end where they explained what happened to Starbuck, but that's it. The show is mostly forgotten and deservedly, so.

    Edit- to make matters worse, they had a Viper with a back seat, 2 flying motorcycles and other really cheesy crap.

    So what was the original link between the BSG miniseries, and then the TV show? Did they come as a package deal, or was the miniseries a thing of its own that then got picked up and expanded?

    Yeah, started out as a miniseries with hopes of a series and got picked up on a year by year basis.

    On a side note, the OEM Galactica was originally a theatrical release. AND, at the end of it, the Cylons behead Baltar. They said they could never trust someone who'd betray their own race.

    Have it on my watch list. will have to check out since i never watched it. Wife rather liked the original and didn't care much for the change with Starbuck's character though (I've never seen either lol).

    The changes do take some getting used to, but overall, the new Galactica blows the original away.
