Old BSG Opening Titles Theme


Here’s the opening titles theme from the original Battlestar Galactica. I tried, I really tried to like the new BSG and see what all the fuss was about. People kept raving about it and saying that it’s way better than anything else currently on tv and it”s massively more technically advanced and that it’s darker & more mature that the old one.

Well it’s darker alright and the characters are more fleshed out. But you’ve got to remember that the original was made in 1978 and the special effects were limited. However, I’m comparing the original’s theme about an advanced race of humans who were separated from us on Earth, now looking for us to survive after their home worlds got destroyed  by an alien race. The new one says nothing about aliens but it’s more like an American vs Arab terrorists in the sky (they look like us, speak like us, engineered to be like us).

Yes the storyline is fascinating in the new BSG and I would want to know how it all ends. But the copies of cylons is boring me. I want the nostalgic BSG, that was a huge part of my childhood. It’s optimism in the face of adversary and yes there’s a lot of humour in it. And I love the old opening theme way better than the ‘Gayathri Mantra’ opening in the new one (so they weren’t Americans but actually Hindus?). I guess I’ll never like the new one better than the original. But if you prefer the new one, that’s ok. Cause it’s good too! But……

Sens Trade McAmmond, Welcomes Back Comrie

With the trade deadline looming ahead on March 4th, the Ottawa Senators went ahead to acquiring two needed resources in offence & defence. Rejuvenated by new coach Cory Clouston and a current 5-1-1 streak, GM Bryan Murray traded forward Dean McAmmond and a 2009 first-round draft pick the Senators had originally acquired from San Jose for center Mike Comrie and defenseman Chris Campoli from the New York Islanders.

This will be Comrie’s second stint in Ottawa. The eighth-year veteran had 25 points in 41 games with the Senators during the 2006-07 season after being acquired from the Phoenix Coyotes on Jan. 3, 2007. He also had 2 goals and 6 points in 20 playoff games as the Senators reached the Stanley Cup Final. That summer, Comrie signed with the Islanders. Last season, he led the Islanders with 49 points and was second with 21 goals. He missed five weeks earlier this season with a hip injury, and in 41 games has 7 goals and 20 points.

Murray says that when he talked to Comrie a while back, the Edmonton native had indicated he really was disappointed when he left Ottawa. The next 25 games will see if Comrie gets to stay for longer – he becomes a free agent on July 1.

After a breakout rookie season that saw him post 9 goals and 34 points in 80 games, health issues have plagued Campoli. Mostly healthy this season, Campoli has 6 goals and 17 points in 51 games, numbers that put him on pace to nearly match his first-season output. McAmmond, in his 16th NHL season, joins his eighth team. In 916 NHL games with the Blackhawks, Oilers, Flyers, Flames, Avalanche, Blues and Senators, McAmmond has 176 goals and 422 points. In 44 games with the Senators this season, McAmmond has 3 goals and 7 points.
