Battlestar Galactica: Complete Epic Series

( 4 )

Overview

Galactica fans rejoice! The original Battlestar Galactica series has finally come home to DVD from Universal Studios Home Video with this pricey DVD Set. Repackaged from the original Cylon head Collector's Box Set released in 2003, this new release forgoes the outrageous packaging in favor of a more shelf-friendly slipcase. The first run of the series is collected in its original broadcast order (they were nice enough to leave out the quite horrible Galactica 1980 continuation series). The picture and sound for ...

Overview

Galactica fans rejoice! The original Battlestar Galactica series has finally come home to DVD from Universal Studios Home Video with this pricey DVD Set. Repackaged from the original Cylon head Collector's Box Set released in 2003, this new release forgoes the outrageous packaging in favor of a more shelf-friendly slipcase. The first run of the series is collected in its original broadcast order (they were nice enough to leave out the quite horrible Galactica 1980 continuation series). The picture and sound for each episode has been digitally remastered, with pristine 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround sound bringing new life to the series, which still holds a firm fan base to this day. The extras for this set are staggering, with over three hours of deleted and alternate scenes for every episode, spread out over six double-sided discs. Even more bonus features can be found on the first disc, starting with the commentary with Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, and Herbert Jefferson Jr. Everyone obviously cherishes the series, as does creator Glen A. Larson and composer Stu Phillips, as evidenced on the "Creation of Battlestar Gallactica" and "Composing the Score" featurettes, also found on the first disc. Skip to the third disc on side two to access even more bonus material in the Inside Battlestar Galactica section, where you can find additional featurettes on working with the Cylons, along with the on-set antics of the three-year-old monkey inside the suit of the robotic dog Daggit. Finally, an expansive 45-minute documentary awaits the viewer on side two of the final disc, where the cast's remaining leads are assembled to share their thoughts from the highly rated premiere all the way through when the plug was unexpectedly pulled on the show. A collector's book rounds out the set, with its comprehensive episode guide alongside some schematics of the ships and photos of the cast. While this release doesn't hold a candle to the original packaging (that new cover is a mess), you still get the complete run of the series, plus some fine extras that do fair justice to the acclaimed sci-fi series.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Heavyweight television producer Glen A. Larson -- the man behind Quincy, Buck Rogers, Magnum P.I., and others -- found a cult gem in this action-packed sci-fi series. A far cry from Star Trek and other "thoughtful" sci-fi, the premise was simple and left room for maximum action. Desperate for peace following centuries of intense warfare, the united planets throughout the solar system known as the Twelve Colonies of Man gather to sign a treaty with their dreaded enemies, the robotic Cylons. But in an act of treachery, the Cylons launch a devastating surprise attack, destroying the Colonies' home planets and most of their military strength. A lone battleship, the Galactica, remains to aid the surviving colonists in their quest for a new home on a far-off, legendary planet -- Earth. Along the way, of course, the colonists must survive a series of exhilarating battles. Despite a short run (1978-79), Battlestar Galactica was epic for its day -- the production budget neared $1 million per episode -- and it's a cult hit if there ever was one. Aside from stars Richard Hatch, Lorne Greene, and future A-Team pretty-boy Dirk Benedict, the show offered special effects by John Dykstra (Star Wars, Spider-Man). It also inspired a long-lived and much-loved attraction at the Universal Studios theme park. And, hey -- did you ever notice how the red lights that serve as the Cylons’ eyes resemble the front of K.I.T.T., the car from David Hasselhoff’s TV breakthrough, Knight Rider, also a Larson production? Savor this and more as you enjoy the set's entire 22-episode run, in this six-DVD set.

    Well worth the money!

    This DVD set superbly presents a true SF TV classic in all its glory. If you want to see heroic space adventure, cool looking evil robots and some stellar special effects from the guys who did Star Wars then buy this set now! Dig that seventies hair!
