Battlestar Galactica Season One
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.
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.
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.
