Battlestar Galactica Season One

Edgier and racier than its predecessor, Battlestar Galactica 2004 is a complete re-imagining of the 1970s series - upping the ante on the action, adventure and drama that made the original so popular. The groundbreaking story of man versus machine remains, but this time, the Cylon robot is no longer a recognisable enemy... it can move among man.

With the 12 colonies of man virtually destroyed in the climax of a hundred-year war with the Cylon empire, President Roslin (Mary McDonneell) and Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) gather up the few humans left on the twelve worlds and embark on a journey to find the mythical planet Earth, the supposed thirteenth colony of mankind.

Battlestar Galactica 2004 gives new life to the stories and ideas that were at the heart of the original series, with a compelling plot, breathtaking special effects and riveting, action-packed adventure, speaking to both long-time fans and a new generation of admirers.

I must admit that this series didn't grab me from the start because it took what was all sacred with the original series and basically threw it all into the blender to create an interesting remake. Fortunately, the series characters really helped draw me into this new universe with not only new ideas but also new locales.

The video quality and audio quality are exceptional and is presented in an aspect ratio of 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 5.1 for that true movie experience. Unfortunately the extras are truly lacking on this collection with only exclusive deleted scenes gracing this collection.
