Default Mr. Robot Creator Reboots Battlestar Galactica

The biggest announced title from this morning presentation for NBCUniversal’s new streaming service Peacock is that of “Mr. Robot” creator and “Homecoming” executive producer Sam Esmail spearheading a second reboot of the “Battlestar Galactica” franchise.

Glen A. Larson created the original series for ABC in the late 1970s, while NBC Universal TV produced the acclaimed Ronald D. Moore-run revamp which ran from 2004-2009 on the Sci-Fi Channel. Esmail has reportedly been in touch with Moore, currently showrunning Starz’s “Outlander,” who blessed the idea because of Esmail’s love of the first reboot.

It'll be hard to live up to the 2004-9 version, although that ending kinda sucked IMO. Let's hope they find ways to improve it without losing much of what made it great.

It is peacock, home of MSNBC, Starbuck will be a Jull smoking white Asian trap android that cracks jokes but never actually gets the girl human clone bug replicant because of silly antics and learns its lesson and becomes a vegan her/him to redeem itself after self mutilation in the name of love. Oh and gambles a lot while shooting baddies.

Its not a reboot according to Esmail himself. Some kind of prequel/sidequel/ sequel set in the same universe as the 2004 series.

Lexa Doig could play Adama. She has experience in the genre, and credibility in the SF community.

Michelle Forbes as well, though that casting could cause heads to explode. I don't think they could afford Lena Headey. Her portrayal of Ma in the last Judge Dredd movie showed she can do competent and ruthless. In GOT she wasn't all that competent, and in TTSCC she wasn't reliably ruthless.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexa_Doig

Mike from Breaking Bad, Jonathan Banks, could easily growl and emote his way through the part.

If going young, female, and hot, go Doig, if going classic Adama, go Banks.

Oh, not a reboot? Given the series ending, nothing really matters in the really long term, and that ruined the prequel for me.

Imo they could not violate the canon of the last BSG, thus pleasing its loyalists, while never acknowledging that it's absolutely in the same time line, and announcing that.

That would please those of who like George R. R. Martin were fans, but threw up their hands at the final episode.

I certainly enjoyed much of the journey with BSG. But damn it, doesn't anybody know how to write an ending any more? Writing 101, kids. Adam and Eve, God Did It, It Was All a Dream? I've seen Clarion students left stunned and bleeding for turning in stories with those endings."[

Agree to disagree, her character had an arc where she matured, and even recovered memories.

And she was bad ass in Continuum.

The irony of the guy who can't bothered to finish book six of his own series, let alone the series itself, whining about another franchise's ending... At least BSG had an ending, George.

don't you mean damn near impossible? I only hope they use the original ship and theme, and if there are to be aliens, at least make them intelligent, unilke thoe in the original series. some of them were just idiotic

so, more than two battlestars managed to escape? please let it be a skeleton crewed, mothballed Galatica

I thought I had a snarky 'all this has happened before and all this will happen again' joke about yet another reboot, but if it's a different story then at least it's something.

Maybe that's the question he should have asked Benioff and Weiss before he let them write the TV show instead of asking who Jon's parents were.
