Format: DVD
'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.

Like Mary Poppins-it is almost perfect in every way. Unfortunately, scenes that the Sci-fi Channel edited out to make rooom for additional episodes are still edited out. You can see them under deleted scenes. The Problem is that it is a pain when you want to watch the entire episode in Chronological order and you have to do it in your head instead of seeing it on the screen. In some cases it is impossible to tell where a scene goes, and in the case of "Magnificent Warriors" no such deleted scenes are provided. I knew Glenn Larson put a lot of Mormon Theology into his creation, but the story lines made it easy to overlook. I'm dissappointed that they have been manhandled. I was hoping they would show scenes deleted from the original cuts-like the one where Apollo sees the cloven hoof and finds out who count Iblis really was. When they say deleted scenes-they evidently mean scenes deledted by Sci-fi Channel to make room for comercials. I paid 83.00 for a substandard collection of episodes..

A fantastic complete set with the pilot episode, great packaging and for our collector and fan he is more than happy that this series was available. If you are a fan of the original than this is a must have item.

Je voulais voir la première serie en entier avant d'acheter la nouvelle. Ce fut plus de nostalgies qu'autres choses. par contre on y voit des acteur comme Patrick Macnee ( The Avengers),Lloyd Bridges,Fred Astair,ainsi que les débuts de Jane Seymour.Les effets CGI n'en sont qu'à leurs débuts, mais bien fait pour l'époque. Mais en spécial à moins de 35 dollars ,c'est une aubaine. Maitenant à moi la nouvelle serie.
N.B. POUR VOIR LA PREMIÈRE SERIE AU COMPLET, IL VOUS FAUT ACHETER AUSSI,Galactica 1980: The Complete Series.

good price, good shipping and a fun blast from the past... not as good as the reboot, but still a great show that reminds me of when I was a kid...
