This review is from: Battlestar Galactica: The Plan (Steelbook) [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)The Plan. Basically anyone pondering buying this needs to ask themselves two questions;
1 - Am I a BSG fan who watched the show for the story?
2 - Have I seen this already?
If you answered yes, then no, then you need to see this.
The "Plan" of the title was never ever meant to refer to the attack on the 12 Colonies, so berating this for not being something it was not supposed to be is a tad unfair of other reviewers. Rather, the "Plan" is the total plan the Cylons had - notice that, "had" - for dealing with humanity that they hatched in their long years of disappearance.
Yes, this does reuse footage from the show, but it does so to put it into new context.
Quality wise, the usual mixed bag thanks to the style the show was filmed in, but still noticeably better than the DVD version and better quality than the broadcast.
Centering around the two #1 models, as one stays with the fleet and the other with the resistance, following them until their eventual discovery and capture, there are some standout moments which flesh out the Cylons and their motives, reasonings, in the same way that the episode of the series did which focused on 7 and Sharon models.
Ultimately, the final minute of The Plan is what you are watching this for. Two people holding hands has never conveyed so much in a sf show as here....
