For those of us with fond memories of the original 70s version, the news that a remake was on the cards caused some consternation. Why were they bothering? We needed have worried, as the new version was everything a good remake should be, retaining enough elements of the original but bringing a freshness to the story. The new Galactica worked because it gave the impression of being what the original would have been like if the makers had had today’s CGI.
