Performance

The 3 DVD-set packs about 4 episodes per DVD. 5.1 track, pretty well done; video quality was so so; also the cinematography gets a little odd at times. I guess there is not much point in talking about how great BSG is since this is season 2.5 so anyone buying this would have already seen the previous episodes. If you haven't then make sure you see them first as absolutely nothing would make sense in 2.5 Ohh one note, if you are tempted by the "extended" version of Peagasus its not really worth it. Overall it contains maybe an extra 4 minutes of footage which was cut out from the original... and for a good reason.

The Writers have turned a 70's sci-fi breakout pro

by Bdubslawman on 9/19/2006

The writers of the new Battlestar Galactica Series have exceeded our expectations. They took some bold steps by replacing a once testosterone boys club into a real life future world with parallels to our world. Besides fantastic writing-plots, the visual effects are tremendous. They have corrected many of the mistakes of space flight. This isn't just for SCI-FI nuts. The writing and acting draws you into the story. The first "Movies" in the series draw you into the world seemlessly and make you glad that we have the freedoms we do. IT's AMAZING! Read More

Editors Note
Note This updated and re-imagined version of the classic 1970s sci-fi television show BATTLESTAR GALACTICA combines elements of STAR TREK, STAR WARS, and THE TERMINATOR. Human beings built the android Cylons to work as servants for them, only to have the robots rebel and disappear into space. A generation later, however, the Cylons returned to destroy their former masters, and succeeded in eliminating the 12 worlds that mankind inhabited. Luckily, one group of people has managed to escape the genocide, led by Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos), on board the massive space ship called Battlestar Galactica. But the struggle isn't over, as the ruthless Cylons continue to pursue the ship and the last surviving members of the human race. This vision of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA features a darker tone and CGI special effects, and shares with other science fiction sagas a warning about the misuse of advanced technology. This collection includes episodes 11-20 of the second season.

Mike Pinsky, DVD Verdict ...everything a good science fiction show needs to succeed: intense performances, plenty of action...
