From Amazon.co.uk

Surely in the running to be the best television series of the past decade, the stunning revival of Battlestar Galactica is perhaps only nudged out of first place by The Wire. But it’s a tight-run race, and across the four seasons in this collected box set, there’s some of the best science fiction television of all time.

Sadly, the fact that it’s a science fiction show on the exterior is likely to put some off Battlestar Galactica. It really shouldn’t. The writers superbly weave in politics, religion, action, and excellent character work, bringing together an outstanding company of actors. Edwards James Olmos and Mary McDonnell are the stand-outs, but there are so many performances of note, it’s hard to highlight too many more. It goes without saying, of course, that the majority of science fiction enthusiasts will be blown away by many of the collected episodes here.

And, bluntly, it’s a real treat to watch them in high definition. While perhaps the earlier episodes of Battlestar Galactica don’t look quite as striking as the later instalments, this is still a show with high production values that gleam in high definition. Cinematically shot and engrossing right through to its challenging ending, Battlestar Galactica is quality television, and it’s never looked better than it does on Blu-ray. --Jon Foster

As some of you may or may not know; there is so much Battlestar Galactica related content out there in the form of spin-off series, additional minisodes, TV movies and other secondary content. When I was trying to purchase the Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] for myself I was having trouble actually finding out what this box set contains, especially since Amazon combines reviews of both DVDs and Blu-Rays; the former supposedly not including alot of that secondary content and the latter supposedly including all of it. As well as various people saying this and that and other people saying the oppposite of this and that, I was getting rather confused. I never actually found out for sure what this box-set included so I caved and just bought it for myself regardless.

The sole purpose of my review is to have one dedicated space in outlining what this box set actually does and does not contain!

The Battlestar Galactica: The Complete Series [Blu-ray] CONTAINS:

- Battlestar Galactica (2003) (TV-Mini-Series)
- Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009) (the Main TV Series, All Seasons [1,2,3,4 and The Final Season]
- ALL unaired extended episodes of specific episodes from the Main TV series (as well as the original broadcast versions)
- RAZOR (TV Movie) (BOTH the original broadcast version and the unrated extended version)
- Razor Flashbacks (Minisodes x7)
- The Resistance (Webisdoes x9)
- I won't list the special features as they are on the Amazon product page, but I will add that there are also audio commentaries for each extended episode!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice, but not complete... 5 Aug 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A nice box set, but really should have also contained "The Plan" for it to be complete. It does however, include the Razor movie, and that is a definite bonus. There is also a booklet contained within the boxset that potentially contains spoilers in terms of revealing who some of the Cylon's may be, so for those buying this boxset with the intention of viewing it for the first time, or for watching it with others that haven't seen it, then don't read the booklet.

As regards the disks themselves, they are not going to blow you out of the water with the quality of their blu-ray definition, because of the way some of the footage was originally filmed to give it a a slightly grainy, "embedded reporter" type feeling to it. Indeed if you already have the DVD's of BSG, then I wouldn't bother investing in this box set, as you will gain no significant picture improvements.

The additional content, some unedited episodes and commentaries available in the set are nice to have, but I am sure that many people will just be buying this box set to have BSG in all its glory, in as few disks as possible.

In short, buy this if you don't already have the DVD's and you don't mind having to buy 'The Plan', separately.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great box set! 21 Nov 2011
Format:Blu-ray
There have been several Battlestar Galactica (BSG) blu-ray and dvd releases and this is by far the best packaging based on the price. It's well put together, enough effort has been made with the box and packaging that it looks great and stands proudly on the shelf. Playback, the company that releases BSG in the UK have taken much critisim over the years for their BSG box sets, in the UK and North America. However having researched this extensively and waited patiently to buy BSG, I have been very impressed by this box set and consider it well worth the price here.

The content included is all the great episodes in great HD video quality and sound.

Despite other reviews on this page ALL the extras are here, on the BLU RAY anyway, don't know about the DVD. That means: Extended episodes of Pegasus, Razor, Unfinished Business etc are included along with the original broadcast shorter versions. Plus webisodes, commentaries, video diaries. Confusion has come because there have been many editions of the complete BSG which did not have all the extras actually made for the show, but this one has EVERYTHING!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the fiction, not the science 17 July 2011
Format:DVD
This series is fantastic.

It's dramatic, emotional, realistic and confronts all manner of deep issues like loss, faith, family, betrayal and the horrors of war. This is not Star Trek. There's almost no high technology, no unbelieveable hyper-moral characters and for large parts of the series, no hope. This is depressing stuff - things are always going wrong, people are always dying or being traumatised and the leaders are always having to make dreadful decisions.

The gritty realism of living as the remains of a destroyed society come home perfectly in this setting. The beauty of it is that this could be set in the second world war and it would be pretty much the same, just with an aircraft carrier instead of a spaceship and Nazis instead of robots. This is a science fiction series about people - people who have only just survived and are clinging on to what little remains of their lives with both hands.

For me, the best thing of all is the ever decreasing number of survivors put up at the start of every episode - whoever came up with that was a genius. Simple and hard hitting.

Pros:
+Great acting and excellent characters
+Enormous story arcs
+Plenty of intrigue
+Great action sequences
+Tension of situation is very successfully put across

Cons:
-Some plot holes when viewed from start to finish
-The 'mystical' side of things gets a bit too strong as the series go on
-Can be genuinely depressing at times

Buy it. Don't worry about what extras you get, just watch the episodes and get lost in the story - it's a fantastic series

I like the series itself, but I imagine the DVDs will have at least equal image quality, so save some money and ignore the blu-ray release. Read more
