The RDM version is the original? I've rewatched most of it on antenna TV in the last year.
No. https://en.battlestarwikiclone.org/wiki ... tica_(TOS)
TOS was the version w/Lorne Greene as Adama, Richard Hatch as Apollo, etc. It lasted a whopping one season and there was a movie/pilot movie (longer story behind that). There was a followup horrible series called Galactica 1980.
RDM (https://en.battlestarwikiclone.org/wiki ... tica_(RDM)
) refers to Ronald D. Moore (who had worked on Star Trek TNG) and his re-imagined version w/plenty of gender changes (e.g. Boomer, Starbuck and Commander Cain). Richard Hatch came back as https://en.battlestarwikiclone.org/wiki/Thomas_Zarek
BTW, TOS purists who hated "TNS" called it "GINO", Galactica In Name Only. RDM heard about this and named one of the Cylons "Gina", in reference to that. He referred to it in the podcasts until the name Gina finally came up in some episodes. I'm on at least one BSG TOS FB group and ANY posting or discussion of the RDM version is basically banned. And, if it's brought up, they almost all basically say the RDM version sucks, is an abomination, isn't Galactica, etc.
Peacock didn't have any of TOS when I checked last night.
