I have this and the newer version. I like them both.
they could have kept it going, but the plots were all over the place sometimes.

Are you talking about the newer version? If so, yeah, I guess it was only ever planned to be as long as it was. They didn't want to go any longer. I think because Edward James Olmos didn't want to. They definitely went a little wonky with some of the plots but I still enjoyed it.

I actually only saw half a season of the 2000 one. What I did find to be very new for that time is the hand-held camera while filming the space battles. That was very renewing. About the plots, well guess I still have to figure that out. Another one for the watchlist.

You might be able to tell from my avatar that I am a fan :)

The old one was a classic. Pa from Bonanza as Adama and the old Baltar was great.

The new one was good until towards the end when it seemed like they didn't know how to end it. My wife actually liked it too and she is not a sci-fi fan.

they could really do it. the newer was nice, but disconjointed like how star trek enterprise was.

OG BSG was a great show. Kind of weird sometimes, and the plot was...less than airtight, but a great show. New one was fantastic (minus all the fat Apollo episodes), I just didn’t super enjoy the ending. I actually really liked Caprica, too bad that didn’t rate well.

I’m guessing in another 5 years or so either Netflix or Amazon will make another reboot.

I would have liked to see Caprica keep going to show what happened up to the Cylon war. I think it could have been a great prequel.

The original Series was fantastic. The remake did not match the original. Really liked the fleet admiral in the rekame though (great actor)! Caprica, well I could never make myself watch it....

I really could'n watch the Original, but loved the 2004 ver.
Really looking forward to the Sam Esmail version comming up, It's not a re-make, so we'll have to see regarding the story.
