Had no info on history of Final Five, just Dean Stockwell being evil. I did like some of the backstory about Simon.

I am a long time fan of BSG. After the first mini-series ended I expressed the opinion that I hoped it would be turned into a series. I now own all of the seasons on DVD, and that includes the Caprica pilot. On the other hand, I have always hated compilation shows. "Hey, remember when...? Let's use 95% previously-seen material, and write some filler that explains why we are recycling." Even though I am also a fan of recycling (you know, paper, plastic), I hate these shows because: I have already seen this stuff. Do something new. THE PLAN is a compilation show. It contains some new material, much of which I found annoying. ("Name of Place is burning. Name of Other Place is burning.") At the end, what have we discovered? A set of never- before-made deleted scenes. Oh, and I never watch deleted scenes--there's usually a reason they were deleted. I cannot recommend this DVD. Save your time to re-watch some of the real episodes. Oh, and spoiler alert: The Plan? is to eradicate humankind. Shocking!

"The Cylons were created by man. They evolved. They rebelled. There are many copies, and they have a plan." So began the opening of every episode of Battlestar Galactica. Through four seasons we saw the near genocide of the human race through the eyes of the humans, now with The Plan, we see it through the eyes of the Cylons. It took me a while to get into the cultural phenomenon that is Battlestar Galactica. Throughout it's run I was never really interested in checking it out, but finally after going on enough message boards filled with phrases like "frak this" "frak that" and "what the frak" I had to check it out. I borrowed the first season from a friend earlier this year and got hooked. After that I bought all the rest of the seasons and wasted no time watching them all. Battlestar Galactica has become more than just a fan favorite show, though, it's also become the only show in history to have the UN hold a symposium in it's honor, and has even affected the way the UN writes policies. Now, I should say that I'm not here to get into a fandom debate about what science fiction show has had more cultural impact (after all, Star Trek hosted the first interracial kiss on network television), but rather the (possibly?) final installment in the story of Galactica has recently been released on DVD. The question: does it hold up to the series? In all honesty, The Plan is a mixed bag. Directed by the series own Edward James Olmos (Captain Adama), The Plan looks and feels like a two hour episode of the show, if just a little more involved. In most cases, the decisions made on this show do a great job of moving the story along, but cutting them film to remind us who the "final 5" Cylons were is great for viewers who are just getting into the series through The Plan, but I would hope that most people would choose not to start here since it would cause you to loose some of the mystery of the show itself. Overall though, the writing and directing is solid, and like the rest of the series touches on pertinent sociopolitical themes: family quibbles leading to war, totalitarianism, genocide, etc. One of the really great things about The Plan is that the main character is the wise cracking Cylon Brother Cavil. Dean Stockwell plays Cavil with a giddy glee at the thought of genocide, and his character's enthusiasm is infectious, even if you are rooting for the humans. Most of the main characters aren't really seen much, but the performances we do see are right in line with what we remember from the series, and the movie gives us an interesting view of the other side of things. But while the movie starts out great, it eventually loses it's way. The destruction of the 12 colonies, and the scenes on Caprica are the best, but it's not easy to try to cram two seasons worth of info into just under two hours. This isn't the biggest problem with the movie though, the biggest problem has to do with the fact that this movie doesn't really add much to the proceedings. Since the writers didn't really plan the series as they went along, the Cylons don't really have a plan. So, while there are moments that make you go, "Oh okay, that makes sense," there's nothing here to answer the many questions that were left at the end of the season finale.
