I rated this a 10/10 as I was simply blown away. The source material is fantastic, but with this edit it shines even brighter IMHO. I frakkin’ loved it and feel I need to check out the original show as well.
First off, I want to say that the original 2004 pilot bothered me for no other reason than the Baltar sex-scene garbage. This almost destroyed the whole thing for me right off the hop, as it was SO far removed from the 1978 series.
This has been fixed without a hitch in this fanedit.
I noticed no issues. It was crisp on my 2.0 computer speakers, so I have no complaints :) I loved the 1978 score added into this edit and it never seemed overpowering or intrusive. I LOVED the old Viper launch sounds added in there! Nary a complaint!
Crisp as any DVD I have watched on this computer. The only issue I noticed was in the added deleted scenes, and the post-production isn’t put into these by the studios, so this is no fault of the editor’s whatsoever. This deleted scene added a lot of emotion to the story for me, so I am glad it was added into this edit.
If I didn’t know this was a fanedit, I would never have even thought to look for editing flaws…but I found none anyways. Just great editing!
I found this edit to be a modern version of the original series, which I loved, but it’s just WAY too cheezy to watch (and I even tried on Netflix…I barely got through it lol). I am incredibly happy the whole Baltar sex scene is gone, and I am glad the Cylons are just a bunch of *ssh*les just bent on the destruction of the Human race for no real reason other than to wipe them out…much like the original.
The only things I felt were really out of place was why Baltar even HAD any sort of screen time at all, and why the presidential aide and the Galactica officer (whose name escapes me at the moment lol) were so close…but it’s a small price to pay for what BionicBob has given us.
Overall, it was just a great edit, and it was everything I had hoped for. This is how the series should have started out…too bad edits of the entire series are impossible to do, as the HumanCylons don’t exist in this edit and they’re such a huge part of the series.
Oh, well lol!!! I FREAKING LOVED THIS EDIT!!!!!!!!
Final score: the only thing I can take anything away for is what I mentioned, and I can’t take a full star away from the final score for that, so:
