So I did finish up with the battlestar franchise by watching both 1978 and 1980.
1978 is a big mish-mash of Battlestar Galactica, Star Wars and Star Trek. I mean they're supposedly the last remaining humans who end up running into humans on a new planet just about every episode and solving some James T. Kirkian adventure. But whatever, it's the humble beginnings of it all.
1980 on the other hand is utter felgercarb.
That's it, I'm done and dusted with this frakking franchise for a long time.
