From Modern Mythcraft to Magical Surrealism

Galactica 1980 First Season Online

We know you all love the new Battlestar Galactica, and some of you out there are fans of the original.  But many fans would like to forget the sad case that was Galactica 1980

Set during the year 1980, and a generation after the original series, the Galactica and its fleet of 220 civilian ships have finally discovered Earth, only to find that its people have forgotten much of the technology that the Thirteenth Tribe of humanity brought with it, and as a direct result, the planet cannot defend itself against the Cylons as originally hoped. Therefore, teams of Colonial warriors are covertly sent to the planet to work incognito with various members of the scientific community, hoping to advance Earth’s technology. (from Wikipedia)

This show was canceled after 10 episodes. I don’t think we’ll be seeing a reboot of that. But if you’d like a laugh, check out the first episode here:

Watch other Galactica 1980 episodes on Hulu.com or buy the DVD set (if you dare).
