The first thing that jumped out at me was that almost two-thirds of the respondents rated it 8 or higher, better than even fantastic movies like Ocean's 11. Then I noticed that women on average rated it higher than men (except for 18-29... and I have no theory as to why.), with the 45+ crowd having a significant difference in women's votes compared to men's - a real shocker there I'm sure. Of course, the sample size in all those cases is smaller than in others, but I see it as a reasonable validation of my take that the show has something for everyone.The second interesting part is the stepping of the overall rating based on age. 45+ rated it 6.3, 30-44 7.1, 18-29 7.5, and the small segment of under 18 year olds rated it as high as 8.3. The obvious interpretation is that the older you are, the more likely you were to have watched the original, and as a result, the more likely you are to consider the remake a mockery instead of a tribute. Since I'd never seen the original, I had no baggage. This is similar to what happened when I was a kid and started watching ST:TNG without having been a fan of TOS. Anyway, this is just a push to go out and start Tivoing it, find someone who saved the miniseries and episodes thus far, and get yourself hooked, if you're any kind of geek at all, you won't regret it.
Perhaps the best part of all is that the creator of the series has a blog where in the first post he talked about one of the issues that I'd been wondering about myself, asking the great question: "If you only had 33 minutes before the next time you could die, what would you do?". It even has a feed.
