This is not really a review. I just thought I'd string a thought or two together since this show premiered tonight. R3 will have a full review tomorrow.
First, I really appreciated the cameos. It was good to see the original crew... and the 'Hammond' was also a nice touch.
Just like Earth based s-f series have to deal with LOST... space based shows have to deal with the visual and dramatic legacy of Battlestar Galactica.
The characters are irritating and annoying. Which means we'll love them in two episodes.
I'll have more in the comments of R3's review tomorrow.
