Battlestar: Galactica

The Sci-Fi channel's miniseries version of the TV show. Humans face annihilation at the hands of the robots they created. I've waited most of my life to see the return of the old Battle Star. Unlike the long awaited return of Star Wars, this was worth it. Many changes were made (some being relatively pointless gender/racial modifications), but the show remained true enough to the original, and was updated to a darker--if at times slower--and more powerful epic.
