The writer tells about his experience with the premier back in 1978 and why he fell in love with the show.

Hard to believe forty years have passed. I remember being a kid and watching that premier. I loved the show too and was disappointed to see it cancelled. So this second season is starting off strong. The Galactica are united with this other race of refugees. So they have allies but also pick up a new and powerful enemy. An enemy that is allying themselves with the Cylons. The writer gets this series and all the characters feel just like they were on the TV show. This is definitely an enjoyable series.
