  • Battlestar galactica is getting rebooted, again?

  • (upbeat music)

  • So, say we all, the cult sci-fi show Battlestar Galactica

  • is coming back to the small screen.

  • According to the folks over at Deadline,

  • it was revealed on Tuesday that as part of NBC's upcoming

  • streaming service Peacock.

  • Yes, you've heard that right,

  • their service is called Peacock.

  • The beloved series would be getting an overhaul

  • from the Mr. Robot creator, Sam Esmail.

  • For now, lets put the discussion on why

  • a streaming service is called Peacock

  • on the back burner, and instead get into that

  • sweet, sweet, Battlestar Galactica news.

  • The cult property has seen

  • several iterations since the 1970's.

  • At it's core B.S.G. chronicles.

  • The space battle between humans the

  • robot race known as the Cylon's.

  • Who basically have night rider eyes.

  • We guess you could say, its about a war in the stars.

  • A star's war, if you may.

  • The original series ran in 1978,

  • and had a short lived sequel in 1980.

  • The aptly named Galactia 1980.

  • While the show never really rose beyond

  • cult status at the time,

  • it was rebooted with a mini series in 2003.

  • Followed by a show on the Syfy channel.

  • Fans were awed by the gritty and realistic

  • scope of the reboot series that outlined

  • the brutal war of extinction.

  • The robotic Cylons wish on humans.

  • With incredible drama, special effects, and action.

  • And while there is debate among fans on whether or not

  • the finale stuck the landing.

  • It still has a fervorent,

  • and well deserved place in many of our hearts.

  • Which is why, the news of this reboot was a mix

  • of trepidation and excitement for die hard B.S.G heads.

  • As we mentioned earlier the series will be headed

  • by the creator of Mr. Robot, Sam Esmail.

  • While there is not much to go on yet,

  • we guess if someone is to tackle the Cylon's again,

  • it's a creator of a show called Mr. Robot.

  • Esmail himself took to Twitter to alleviate some

  • fears in this world of seemingly non-stop remakes,

  • reboots, and re-imagining.

  • Saying, BSG fans, this will NOT be a remake of the

  • amazing series @RonDMoore launched because..

  • why mess with perfection? Instead, we'll explore a new story

  • within the mythology while staying true to the spirit

  • of Battlestar.

  • So say we all.

  • Exclamation point.

  • So, this sounds like this iteration of the show will be

  • more along the lines of HBO's upcoming Watchmen series.

  • Not a remake, but more of a remix, or a sequel.

  • Of course, spin offs are no stranger

  • to the Galactica universe.

  • From the aforementioned, Galactia 1980 sequel

  • to the origial series,

  • to prequels like Caprica,

  • and Blood & Chrome.

  • But what will this new series look like?

  • Well, we can guess that it will have

  • a lot of negative space.

  • That is a Mr. Robot joke, if you were wondering.

  • While details remain sparce,

  • the announcement of the B.S.G reboot is following

  • the seemingly never ending nostalgic train that studios

  • are continuing to chase.

  • In addition to Battlestar,

  • NBC is getting in on the action with reboots of

  • 80's shows like, Saved By The Bell, and Punky Brewster.

  • Which were also announced along with

  • the introduction of Peacock.

  • Peacock appears to be setting itself up as a formidable

  • threat in the streaming field.

  • Leaning heavily on their back catalog of hits like,

  • The Office, and Parks and Rec.

  • However, considering that Seinfeld is headed to Netflix.

  • Plus the fact, that Friends and The Big Bang Theory

  • will be on Warner Brothers streaming service HBO Max.

  • Peacock will definitely have a bit of an up-hill battle

  • to climb once it launches.

  • Honestly, the news about Battlestar is just the

  • latest salvo in the streaming wars.

  • With a new entrance like

  • Peacock,

  • HBO Max,

  • Disney +,

  • Apple tv +,

  • and now even non media companies,

  • like Tinder...

  • Yes, the dating app.

  • And Cosctco..

  • Yes, the wholesale warehouse company.

  • Entering the streaming media game,

  • we will just have to wait and see who comes out on top.

  • But, what do you folks think?

  • Will you be signing up for Peacock, to get the new

  • Battlestar Galactica?

  • Or watch re-runs of The Office?

  • What do you think will happen in the new series?

  • And when do you think we'll start seeing

  • bundles of streaming services?

  • Lets discuss.

  • (music)

  • Thanks again, to Borderlands 3

  • for sponsoring today's episode.

  • The original shooter looter is back

  • and bigger than ever

  • with four new vault hunters

  • and over 1 billion guns,

  • it's time to lock, load, and loot.

  • Pick up your copy on Xbox One, PS4, or PC now.

  • Let's make some mayhem.

  • Rated M for Mature.
