A Cult Show

Battlestar Galactica isn't your average Sci-fi. With its complex characters, interweaved storylines, and deep mythology, there's so much for streamers to enjoy if they give this show a chance. The series, which ran for 4 seasons between 2004-2009, is a re-imagining of the original but short-lived Battlestar Galactica television series which originally aired in 1978. It is now available to stream on BBC iPlayer and can be watched from outside the UK using a VPN or Google Chrome Extension.

A War between Humans and Androids

Battlestar Galactica chronicles the journey of the last surviving humans from the Twelve Colonies of Kobol, who suffered nuclear annihilation by the Cylons (man-made androids). These survivors, led by President Laura Roslin and Commander William Adama, travel across the galaxy looking for the long-lost Thirteenth Colony known as Earth. The Cylons pursue them with intent on wiping out the remnants of the human race.

The stories of Battlestar Galactica deal mostly with the apocalyptic fallout of the destruction of the Twelve Colonies and the moral choices the survivors must make as they deal with the decline of the human race and war. They also portray the concept of perpetuated cycles of hate and violence driving the human-Cylon conflict. Religion and the implication of a "God" is acts as an underlying  storyline within the show.

Beyond CGI and Space Battles

If you were asked to remember your favourite Sci-fi moments found in films or TV series, what would you think of?  While we are quite sure that the epic space battles with incredible CGI might drift back to your consciousness, we're more convinced that it was the heartfelt and human moments which you feel the most nostalgic.

Battlestar Galactica may have a lot of depth and complexity to it, but it's the humanity of the show that really makes you linger and want to absorb more. While it may have a mostly strange setting, the show encompasses the positives and flaws of humanity which makes the characters and story so relatable.
