Starbuck a man?!

Ok so I just learned that in the original Battlestar Galactica, the character of Starbuck was actually a man!
I have to say that since I really like the new Starbuck in the 2004 Battlestar Galactica, I think they made the right decision.
The old Starbuck was played by Dirk Benedict in the original Battlestar Galactica.
I haven't seen his performance, but something tells me that I would like the new Starbuck better.
How about you? What do you think? New Starbuck or Old Starbuck?

I can't imagine Starbuck as someone else anyway.

Have you NEVER seen the originally series, or were you always this ignorant? Yet, despite that, there are still certain similarities between the characters. They are both crack fighter pilots, they both smoke cigars, and they both ddrink and are compulsive gamblers. Not to mention the problems with the opposite sex.

This is about opinions. It has nothing to do with ignorance.
Knowing about the original Battlestar Galactica is not common knowledge so it is very likely that most people in the world haven't even heard of it.

But it's an interesting thing to know that the Starbuck character did not have to be adapted that much for a woman to play the part.

Times are changing! :-)
