These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Battlestar Galactica (Classic)
Big Damn Heroes: Everyone seemed to get a shot at being one in this series. It could be argued that the biggest difference in tone between the original and the reimagined series is just how much Starbuck, Apollo, Adama and Tigh are Big Damn Heroes in the original, but not so much in the reimagined series.
Popularity Polynomial: For 25 years or so after it first aired, it was regarded as being a pretty solid show considering the time period when it was produced. Then during the 2000s following the launch of the reimagined series, people tended to dismiss it as being just silly, campy fluff that wasted the potential of its concept. In the years since the finale of the reimagined series however, people have started to warm up to the original again, for at least being fun to watch and not having a storyline which collapsed in on itself (it helps that it's much easier to ignore Galactica 1980 than it is to ignore the latter few reimagined seasons).
What the Hell, Hero?: Sure Siress Belloby, use the one item in your possesion that could help a lot of starving children (not to mention the last surviving remnants of your own race) as a barganing chip in your bid to...get into Adama's pants... Really?
Creator's Pet: the Council of Twelve has never disagreed with Dr. Zee? Really? No, really?
Fanon Discontinuity: With the exception of the episode "The Return of Starbuck", this series is NOT what fans wanted.
Replacement Scrappy: Granted, Dr. Zee wasn't that popular to begin with, but fans generally tend to agree that Robbie Rist's emotionless Creepy Child incarnation of the character was much better (or at least more interesting) than James Patrick Stuart's version, who was a typically precocious boy genius.
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot The Cylons return after 30 years and attack the fleet's school ship. You'd think that this would set up an episode where the Galactica mobilizes the Earth to fight their old enemies, but instead we're treated to a Green Aesop and the antics of a bunch of kids. Hoo boy.
