I'm on board in a big way. In fact, this is one of my favorite shows ever. Flat out favorite sci-fi show by far.
Odd thing is, I watched the original every week and was very wrapped up in it as a kid. But the truth is, to me, the original is pretty lame. For years, I heard that people wanted to bring this show back, and I always just wondered why.
I watched the new Mini series, and thought is was good, but not great. Then I kept reading on Aint-it-Cool how good the series was, because it was being aired in the UK. Anyway, the wife and I tuned in and fell for it hard.
While I love SW deeply, I don't really get into other light/adventure Sci-fi. The Sci-fi I've read is usually very serious or at least non-adventure oriented. This new show is, to me, what Sci-Fi should be. Dramatic, exciting, challenging, scary, odd and daring. I hope this show stays as tight as it's been so far.
So say we all!
