Barnes & Noble - Christina Urban
In Battlestar Galactica's explosive Season 1 finale, Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) had been shot by Cylon-in-disguise Boomer (Grace Park); Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) disobeyed orders and went back to Cylon-occupied Caprica to retrieve the Arrow of Apollo, which President Roslin (Mary McDonnell) believed would lead the colonists to Earth; and Baltar (James Callis), Chief Tyrol (Aaron Douglas), and Crashdown (Samuel Witwer) plummeted to the surface of Kobol in a heart-stopping, special effects-laden moment. Season 2.0 collects the first ten episodes of BSG's second season, which absolutely dazzle. All hell breaks loose in the opener, "Scattered," when Tigh (Michael Hogan) is forced to take command while Adama recovers, leading to major mishaps -- such as the arrest of President Roslin -- that threaten the survival of the fleet. In "Valley of Darkness," Cylons board the Galactica in a tense, creepy episode that you may watch with your eyes half open. Back on Kobol, the survivors of the crash deal with a Cylon weapons battery and an overzealous Crashdown in "Fragged." "Resistance" finds Helo (Tahmoh Penikett) and Starbuck teaming up with survivors on Caprica to stave off a Cylon attack, until Starbuck is captured in "The Farm" and we learn the real reason Cylons are so interested in humans. The two-part "Home" delves into humanity's beliefs in polytheism when Roslin heads a team to search for the fabled Tomb of Athena and the route to Earth. And the first half of Season 2 winds down with: "Final Cut," in which guest star Lucy Lawless plays a reporter documenting military life; "Flight of the Phoenix," during which a computer virus invades the Galactica; and "Pegasus," a disturbing episode that unites another battlestar with the fleet, along with its new commander -- who outranks Adama.

These first 10 episodes of the 2nd season are some of the finest, most explosive sci fi to be found throughout the history of this genre. There simply is no better sci fi to watch, none. Do yourself a favor and buy this DVD set, you won't regret it.

... this show would be leading the pack in terms of Emmys, Golden Globes, People's Choice, DGA, and SAG Awards. It still boggles my mind that the entertainment community still shuns sci-fi and genre. This is an amazing show. In the capable hands of Ron Moore, it has far surpassed its predecessor and is one of the few shows on television that consistently makes you think. The writing and directing are not only consistent, but spot-on in terms of continuity, characterization, and relevency to today's world. Of course, this is the sort of high-quality penning that I have come to expect from Ron Moore, having enjoyed many an episode of Deep Space 9 penned by him. In terms of acting calibre, there isn't a cast as good as this anywhere on television. This is an ensemble show that makes use of not only its principle and title characters, but also its recurring cast as well. Led by Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, this cast is flawless. Jamie Bamber as the classic hero Apollo and Katee Sackoff as the terminally screwed up Starbuck have genuine rooting power behind both of them. Grace Park is both sympathetic and dangerous as the Cylon deserter Sharon "Boomer" Valerii, and Tricia Helfer and James Callis are both frightening and amusing as the traitor-cum-vice-president and the Cylon chip in his head Number Six. In the finale "Pegasus," Helfer proves that she's more than the T&A quotient with a disquieting performance as Gina, yet another copy of the Number Six Cylon. The entire theme of this DVD set is family. In the beginning of the season, the family was fractured and divided and by the final hour it had reunited to face a formidable threat in the form of its long-lost "cousins" who arrived on the Pegasus. This season featured great guest stars, including Lucy Lawless as a Colonial reporter and Michelle Forbes as a classic not-quite hero/not-quite villain in the role of Admiral Caine. Some people think that all the hoopla surrounding Battlestar Galactica is a big joke. The rest of us have actually seen this excellent show.

This series just keeps getting better. Character development and dialogue are top-notch, and the drama couldn't be more intense sometimes. It is good to look at this series as the sum of its parts, even the bad parts, which are very, very few. The ideas that bubble up from the human species on the verge of extinction will keep this series going for quite a few years (hopefully!) My only gripe would be that it's not as long as the first boxed set. Thank God there are no commercials.

Hands down best show ever! I didn't watch the original, but Starbuck has to be my favorite character. They really get into Kara and Lee's relationship this season and i LOVE that! I can't wait for Season 3!
