This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: Complete Epic Series [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Although I initially owned the series back when it was originally released this American set add extras not available in the UK. THese were a substantial amount of deleted scenes with all but two installments covered.Varying in picture and sound quality this trims give a fascinating glimpse into how episodes may have looked had they been extended.
The series itself is charming and niave, and at its heart is an adventure romp in outer space. There are a few truly poor episodes and a few that are "OK" but on the whole it stands up well and has aged gracefully.
The core of the show was the flight from the Cylons a race of beings who had become robots. Whilst this theme was carried over to the remake in 2003 this is a very different show.
Sadly cancelled after one season (to be resurrected as the forgettable Galactica 1980) this show will appeal to young and old and to fans of 70s TV sci fi.
Picture quality is pretty good with some print damage visible but nothing to write home about.
