I have to say, it was a perfect (s$it)storm. Any continuation was bound to have fanatics of the original pull their hair out saying "that's not my show." I mean, Trekkies do that all the time, and fans of the original circus that was Galactica said that about the serious 2004 show. But faced with a difficult situation any thinking producer would take some pause to see how they could serve their vision and the original's canon. Instead, Cidre decided that "you know what? They think I will mess with their sacred cow? How about I torch it and serve steaks?"
