Synopsis

Battlestar Galactica balances its striking special effects with character-driven drama and social commentary to create a show that's both entertaining and relevant. This critical favourite re-imagines the cult series from the 1970s with a new cast and more impressive villains. It also eschews the sunny outlook of Star Trek in favour of a darker vision of space and humanity as it comments on issues such as terrorism and civil liberties. Androids called Cylons have massacred billions of people, leaving only a small group of survivors. Led by Oscar nominees Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, the human fleet searches for a mythical planet called Earth as they evade the Cylons. Features the first three series of the show.

Okay, before I purchased this item I was trying very hard to work out why purchasing the box sets individually would come to 17 discs (Miniseries: 1 disc; Season One: 4 discs; Season Two: 6 discs; Season Three: 6 discs), but this collection has only 16 discs. No matter how many sites I looked on I was unable to find the question answered about what had been cut. I can now tell you.

The 'missing disc' of this collection is the sixth disc of Season Three. The Miniseries is still one disc, Season One is still 4 discs, Season Two is still 6 discs, but Season Three is only 5 discs. If you buy Season Three separately, you will receive a sixth disc containing so-called 'bonus material'; you do not receive that disc with this collection.

But that is fine, because in fact the only 'bonus material' on the sixth disc is "Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far" - a 43-minute special program that was aired on the Sci Fi Channel several times before the season three premiere, summarizing the previous two seasons and the miniseries, to try and get people who'd missed them interested in watching season three.

This feature is entirely irrelevant for anyone who has seen the miniseries and first two seasons, hence the makers felt no need to include it in this complete box set - just the one for season three only, in case some people who buy it have not seen any previous seasons.

All the footage in "The Story So Far" is clips from the miniseries (for roughly the first 20 minutes), season one (roughly the next 10 minutes), and season two (the remaining 10 minutes).

The episodes are ace - and some of the other reviews here cover them in more detail than I care to go into, but there aren't any season 3 extras! This boxset is simply a repackaging of the miniseries & seasons 1 to 3 boxsets already released, so they have approximately half the extras that the REgion 1 release had.

Before buying this, a couple of points.
1) BSG is being rereleased in HD, which looks awesome, so you might want to hold off and get the episodes in HD instead
2) Due to the 2007/08 US writers strike, there is a strong chance that BSG will not be finished, so you may end up buying a boxset of a series that ends on a cliffhanger! It might be worth waiting to see if the story is going to be successfully resolved - although having said that, the episodes are amazing anyway...

I bought this without having ever seen a single episode of Battlestar Galactica and boy am I glad that I did.

Firstly the product:
I see people complaining about the packaging or the supposed lack of a disc. This package takes the discs you'd get if you bought the individual seasons and puts them in a different case. Everything else is the same from the decal on the disc to the menu on screen. This product is EXCELLENT value for money. The only fault I have is the menu on season 2 which makes episode selection awfully difficult.

The Show:
This show has fast become my favourite. An eclectic mixture of characters deal with tragedy and scrape by to ensure the survival of the human race. Battlestar cleverly and sensitively deals with everything from politics to religion and asks what it means to be human. Enjoy.

Put simply, I highly recommend this. Do yourself a favour and buy it.

Reasons to buy Battlestar Galactica:

Acting. Uniformly excellent throughout all three seasons. Strong characters with vivid narrative arcs brought to life by a host of committed actors.

Action. This programme doesn't stint on the action...it's crammed with space battles, explosions, shootouts and eight feet tall, stainless steel Centurions.

Ambivalence. In a nod to realism, none of the characters are wholly good or bad. Even the Cylons.

Allegories. You can make any number of allegorical readings and there is scope for dozens of dissertations and essays doing just that. Briefly, you could argue it comments on American foreign policy, religious fundamentalism, the war on terror, the morality of suicide bombers, the Oedipus complex, the myth of the American Dream, mistreatment of prisoners, the dangers of genetic engineering and artificial intelligence, class warfare, racism, personal morality and the nature of war crimes. Big themes for sure but they don't get in the way of the story, but add depth and subtly to it.

Emotional engagement. For all the bullets, rockets and giant robots, at its heart Battlestar holds the human emotions of love, loss, grief and hope. And whilst some episodes are thrillingly exciting others are incredibly moving (and a few episodes are both).

In my opinion this is one of the best tv shows of the century, certainly up there with the West Wing, 24 and even (deep breath and drum roll) The Sopranos. Battlestar Galactica is an intensely satisfying televisual experience...it's what DVD players and nice big telly's were made for.

I'm jealous of anyone who hasn't seen this yet. You are in for such a treat.
