Recently, it was announced that they were going to reboot Battlestar Galactica again, a lot of people started talking about what we’d like to see, and almost universally, it was “not the Syfy version”. Apparently, I am not alone in really hating what became of the franchise under the Ron Moore banner. However, as we started talking about what we hated about nuGalactica, there were other people who were absolutely enamored with it and who started getting upset that we were badmouthing their favorite show.
In reality, these people just didn’t like being disagreed with, they took any criticism of a show that they liked as a personal insult. Why the hell do people do that?
