Amazon.ca

Battlestar Galactica's season 2.5 (i.e., the final 10 episodes of the second season) picks up where season 2.0 (the first 10 episodes) left off: Galactica's giddy reunion with the Pegasus had taken a sour turn when Admiral Cain (Michelle Forbes) went back on her word to Commander Adama (Edward James Olmos) and decided to integrate the crews, moving Apollo (Jamie Bamber) and Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) to Pegasus. The animosity, combined with an attack on Sharon (Grace Park), threatens to derail a golden opportunity for the fleet to strike the Cylons where they'll hurt, and stay hurt--their resurrection ship.

In many ways, Sharon is the central character. The attack lands Helo (Tahmoh Penikett) and the Chief (Aaron Douglas) in hot water; her impending baby remains the subject of heated debate among president Laura Roslyn (Mary McDonnell), Commander Adama, and others; and a rebellious movement determined to force Galactica to give up the Cylon ends up threatening both Apollo and Starbuck and putting further strain on their already-shaky relationship. Dr. Baltar (James Callis) becomes even more intertwined with the Cylons when he discovers another version of Number Six (Tricia Helfer) on the Pegasus, but is also in line to take over the presidency as Roslin's cancer reaches a critical stage. Battlestar Galactica's inexorable dramatic arc sagged in a couple episodes during this run, but the terrific two-part season finale involving a presidential election, a glimmer of hope for humanity, and some unexpected turns of events makes for a thrilling springboard to season 3. Battlestar is often called the best sci-fi show on television, but that seems like damning it with faint praise; it's the best drama on television.

In addition to the 10 episodes, the three-DVD set has an extended version of the last episode of season 2.0, "Pegasus"; the extra 15 minutes include a longer conversation in which Cain reveals her plans to Adama. That episode has a commentary track by executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, Moore's podcast commentaries are on every other episode, and Eick's "video blogs" serve as casual featurettes on series production. --David Horiuchi

Buyers should take note that this is Season 2.0, which is only the first ten episodes of Season 2. The second half of the Season (Beginning with "Resurrection Ship") is being sold as Season 2.5

Format: DVD
I was one of those people who was really hesitant with the original mini-series once I had heard the idea of the "reinvention". I had fond memories of the original series and wasn't sure of what to make of it. However, the mini-series won me over in a big way and in actual fact I now prefer the reimagined Battlestar Galactica to the original.

Season 1 of the regular BSG series was everything the mini-series was and more. The writing proved to be some of the best writing on television and the production and performance value was outstanding. Season 2 just kept on getting better and the second half of season 2 encompasses some of the finest produced television shows of modern time.

From the discovery of the Pegasus and the tensions that arise as two commanding officers of opposing styles clash, through to one of the biggest jaw-droppers of a cliffhanger ending I have ever seen, BSG just continues to set the pace for modern television. This is one show that doesn't disappoint, and season 2 certainly makes for a fraking good time.

Since the episodes of season 4.5 (blu-ray version) are already included in the season 4 package, along with the Razor film, why buy this one. Well I did, since the description didn't mention it! Now I'm trying to return both Razor and 4.5, but since I've had to remove the plastic to see my mistake, I have gone against return policy. Be careful before you buy (caveat emptor).

I can't tell you how hooked i am with this show.........

well, maybe i can......

this set arrived today......

i watched all 11 episodes in a row ..... luckily i had the time !

believe the hype ..... its all true ..... i don't really watch much television, as i've never had cable

i am now tempted to, as i'm not sure if i can wait till next summer to see what happens in season 3 on dvd......

when you listen to the commentaries, you realize how high the standards are in regards to the love and care these guys take in THINKING about and making these shows. its fun to hear an executive producer talk about an episode he felt didn't work too well / could've worked better .....

as a viewer my first reaction to season 2.5 is that it was, for me, quite simply one of the most engaging, exciting and worthwhile times spent in front of a television screen. beyond your regular tv experience. for me these episodes and the show in general are a very cathartic experience ....

recommend that you start with the mini series and watch EVERY episode...... of course, if you're a fan, you know this already.

Format: DVD
This new DVD release is full of special features and bonus material to attract all viewers. The split season format is great. It airs as half season's on Sci-Fi and they release it to match it's airing schedule and system. There is so many special features, you could spend more time watching them then the actual episodes.

The special features include deleted scenes, the producer'spodcasts that aired on the Sci-Fi channel's website during the original airings, and the producer's video Logs and much much more. The deletes scenes are broken down episode by episode. The first episode of this half of the season is a special extended version of the Pegasus that did not air due to time constraints.

The characters are further developed in this half of season 2 also the writing is excellent. The cliffhanger ending leave's you mouthwatering and awaiting season 3. The Sci-Fi channel has to date released 4 of 10 web episodes that have story line development between season's 2 and 3. Season 3 begins airing in the US and Canada on October 7th for the first time the episodes will air in both countries at the same time. We here in Canada will not have to wait days, weeks or months for the US show to finally come to Canada.

This DVD box set is worth every penny.

Format: DVD
Wow, ANOTHER great sci-fi show! I'm not too big on the genre but this got me hooked! More of a drama than anything else. Now, what is "2.0" you ask?? It's the FIRST HALF of Season 2. Yes, they split the season up on DVD, like they did with Sex and the City Season 6. So there are 20 episodes in season 2. This set is 1-10, the next set, "2.5", will have 11-20, plus the rumoured extended cut of Pegasus. Hope this review helps you, so you won't get any narsty surprises to find half of a season (at this time, it doesn't look like a complete second season DVD is coming out) when watching.

Format: DVD
This modern interpretation of Battlestar Galactica has been one of the great joys of modern television. Saddened as I was by the aging and/or cancellation of many genre shows of late, it was a suprise, to put it mildly, to see that a remake could be so fresh and original! This DVD set should have been among the best out there, and it very nearly was.
What spoiled my enjoyment was the discovery -- after the purchase -- that this only included half the season! Once again, for those who understandably skipped the detailed review to avoid spoilers: SEASON 2.0 CONTAINS ONLY THE FIRST HALF OF SECOND SEASON. This should have been made clear on the box ("2.0"? Try "2.1", or better yet, "Season 2 Part 1" like everyone else). Having said that, the per episode cost of this set is comparable to the last one, so it's still a good value, and still recommended.
