BSG is such a better production value show — costumes, sets, CGI (and a decade later on that front). It was an expensive show.
B5, in its cost-controlled glory leaned on character hard. Wooden acting at first was, I think, lack of re-takes, under-resourced. But the cast gelled into something really solid, the way a sitcom cast does after a couple years on the sound stage.
Where BSG is always focused on tomorrow. Or today. It's got such a remarkably _short_ time span, which gives it a real immediacy, but makes its flashbacks seem out of place — but necessary to give it any scope.
