Product Description

In the deepest reaches of space, the fight to save all human life from extinction has begun in this science-fiction adventure that launched the Battlestar Galactica phenomenon, now presented digitally remastered, complete, and uncut! Hopeful for lasting peace following centuries of intense warfare, the Twelve Colonies gather to sign a treaty with their dreaded enemies, the Cylons. But after an act of treachery on the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons launch a devastating surprise attack, destroying the Colonies' home planets and most of their military strength. A lone flagship battlestar, the Galactica, remains to aid the surviving colonists on their epic journey for a new home to a far-off legendary planet—Earth. They must survive the pursuing Cylons in a series of epic battles that will determine the fate of the human race in this action-packed classic.

'There are those who believe
that life here began out there...'
Thus begins the tale of Battlestar Galactica, full of meaning and hope and mystical importance, spoken with the majestic voice of Patrick Macnee (best known from The Avengers).
Okay, enough theology for the moment.
Or, maybe not. The first episode, a movie-length introduction to the series, along with the first several episodes, definitely has theological undercurrents. It is the fight between good and evil. It is a wandering in the desert (of space) looking for the promised land. It is about hope and humanity, sensitivity and courage.
And, as a 12 year old (when I first saw it) I of course understood none of this. I merely loved the special effects in my own home (as opposed to the Star Wars which required payment at the movie theatre), the characters and the technology. I was amazed that every computer on the bridge set of the Galactica actually worked.
Today I'm amazed that the computer on which I'm typing this review has more power than all those computers combined!
The story is basic. Ambush in space because of a monumental betrayal by a sinister bad guy who is in turn double-crossed (Baltar), a quickly-organised escape from the evil mechanical Cylons (who both symbolise the terrors of technology as well as of autocratic rule--remember the Cold War?), a daring journey, and finally a hope. Unfortunately the series became a wandering in the desert with little hope for reaching the promised land, and in television-series timelines and lifelines, this just wasn't acceptable.
In video form, the entire series was not available. It was frustrating that not all of them are available, as watching them in sequence left some gaps.

This IS the complete series of Battlestar Galactica. I started watching the show when I was a teenager. All of the episodes are in this set. When they find Earth that's in the Galactica 1980 series NOT in the 1978 BSG series.
The quality of the DVD's are excellent and the commentaries are wonderful to listen to. I also enjoyed watching the deleted scenes and the bloopers.
I also really liked the packaging and the booklet that was included in the boxed set. I highly recommend it.
The new BSG series is not 100x times better than the 1978 series. It's basically just a remake without the charm and fun of the original.

Well it's here, Battlestar Galactica, the complete series on DVD for the first time!
Once you open the silver box with the shelf space consuming Cylon head on the front, you get a DVD set which once again brings the epic adventures of the crew of the Galactica back to life.
In this series there is something for all the family, gorgeous gals and handsome hunks, wise and steadfast men and cute furry creatures that are man's (or a boy's) best friend!
The special effects still give the CGI blockbusters of today a run for their money, and the chrome-plated baddies, the Cylons, still endure as an icon of evil.
Battlestar Galactica's message - a tale of hope in desperate times, and its themes of family and friendship, selflessness and sacrifice are as relevant today as they were in 1978.
The set's picture quality and sound is top notch, the menus are easy to navigate and there is a wealth of deleted\alternate scenes to watch after each episode.
There are a number of short documentaries and one 45 minute one in which the original cast, guest stars and directors etc, remember the making of the series, and their enthusiasm for the show is infectious. There are also a number of outtakes, the "wedgie" one being particularly funny!
Universal have excelled themselves with this DVD set and are to be congratulated for its contents, presentation and packaging.
Buy it now!

In 1978, my father had surprised me with my very own color television for my bedroom. Battlestar Galactica was the first show I saw that night. Eventually I became fond of the tv series. I had not realized it had been cancelled. I was still waiting for episodes the next Septmeber.
Very nice television DVD set. Battlestar Galactica (1978-79) only lasted for one season. Originally meant to be only a seven-hour mini-series. Why the ABC network cancelled this science-fiction series is anyone's guess. It really was a hit with people. It debuted nearly 10 years after STAR TREK (1966-69, the original cast) had been cancelled and the very first STAR WARS (1977) film was released one year earlier. The STAR TREK reunion movie, STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE was released in 1979. Battlestar Galactica was about to start a whole new science-fiction revolution.
BG included a cast that we soon came to know: Lorne Green (Bonanza [1959-73], Earthquake [1974]), Richard Hatch (Best Friends [1975], Heated Vengeance [1985]), Dirk Benedict, Herbert Jefferson Jr, Maren Jensen, Tony Swartz, Noah Hathaway (The neverEnding Story [1984], Terry Carter, John Colicos, Laurette Spang, Paul Coufos (Days Of Our Lives in 1981-82), Sarah Rush and special Guest Star, Jane Seymour (Live and Let Die [1973]). Leann Hunley (Days of Our Lives in 1982-86, The Beverly Hillbillies [1993]) and Larry Manetti (Magnum PI) make appearances and The Daggit, "Muffit" too.
The spaceships were so acceptable. The sound effects were smooth and easy on the ear. Very pleasent to hear. The cyclones with the moving red eye were like nothing we had seen before, almost hypnotizing. Battlestar Galactica was originally a tv series, but the pilot episodes were edited down into a theatrically released motion picture too.
