This is such an amazing show - probably one of the best I've ever seen. It was very timely and reflected the politics of our time in a "future" setting. All characters were flawed and human; you couldn't help but root for them. Even the cylons developed into characters that at times made you wonder who was really "evil." An original show with great writing and great plot & character development.
One of my all-time favorites, but lost much of its magic in later seasons. In its prime, a gritty drama with memorable characters notable for its respect of the military. Later, slouched into a forced "who shot J.R." melodrama about discovering the hidden enemy within; and unfortunate watering down of main characters' admirable qualities. Finale was contrived but satisfying.
Everything that a sci-fi series should be - not only a spectacular show, but a powerful statement, graphically striking, created with taste, love and talent.
It's a show that is dealing with human shortcomings, with philosophy and ecology, without pushing them in your face. You can just enjoy the show.
I have bought all the seasons on DVD and think that every sci-fi fan should have them.
