One word sums it up Amazing!!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Battlestar Galactica - The Mini Series  [DVD]  (DVD)I missed Battlestar Galactica - The Mini Series, when it was shown on TV. I even heard Starbuck's character would be played by a female actress (not that I have anything against strong female leads). It's just that I had grown up on the original series and don't like things being changed. I started to hear some good reviews from friends. I was unsure with this purchase, but decided to take the risk. I'm so glad I did, one word sums it up Amazing!!!
Firstly the show has got a brilliant story, which has been updated but it keeps you interested. The run time is a little under 3 hours, but you do not feel it. All the main characters are really well cast, and they stir enough genuine human emotion. I have to say that casting Starbuck as a woman is a great idea. Katee Sackoff who plays Starbuck is awesome. The role really suits her, I'm so glad she's playing Starbuck. Tricia Helfer, who plays Number Six, is also really good in her role.
There's a nice musical score during certain scenes and they really mix well. The way the series is filmed is also refreshing, a break away from other Sci Fi shows. This is not all about space ships blasting one another, there's more to the story than just that. You can tell careful consideration has been put into the storyline and I'm really really impressed.
I'm going to start watching the first season now, as I really want to know what happens to the survivors of the 12 colonies.
If you have not watched this show and want some great Sci Fi, please give this a go you won't regret it.
