Original Galactica on NBC

I have one of those ring tones that most people under 30 don't recognize.  When someone calls, and I'd don't have things set to vibrate, the strains of majestic music burst forth from my cell phone. Well, maybe burst is optimisic.  The notes more trickle out of my Samsung A900 (I know, it's time for new phone).

The tense chase is on, and the mind of sci-fi fans from the 70s drift back to that powerful theme as Galactica leads the colonists on a quest for freedom.

The original Battlestar Galactica theme reminds of those days when I longed to pilot a Colonial Viper. 

So I was thrilled to stumble across the NBC Classics site.

You can now watch  full episodes of the original BSG, the original Bionic Woman, the original Knight Rider, the original A-Team, the original Miami Vice, and a few shows they haven't remade yet.

NBC early on "got it" when it came to online video with their current shows, and now it's great to see them bringing back these classics for free. 

If your craving hour-long 70s and 80s drama, check out the site.  Now you can finally satisfy your jones-ing for more Simon and Simon.

Oh dear! I don't need one more way to waste time, but I loved Simon & Simon.

Nice. I want to watch the new BSG, but not without checking out the classic.

I'll also be watching Quantum Leap. One of my favorite shows ever.

Ahhh ... I love oldies. Will have to spend some time checking them out. Always liked Lorne Greene better anyways.

The original Galactica blew my mind as a kid. Loved those old Cylons (sp?)
