Favorite tv shows: Battlestar Galactica (1978)

This was the first show I became a fan of from the ground floor. I was already a fan of Star Trek, but that was in syndication for a few years before I started watching and fell in love with it. I loved the ships, and identified with Apollo but secretly wanted to be like Starbuck. I even made a viper out of paper towel and toilet paper cores and some card board. I also made the front of a viper’s “helmet” out of cardboard! Somewhere I still have a viper toy, the one that could shoot the plastic torpedo before they reissued the toy with that capability removed.
