Now that the modern remake of this series is rapidly becoming the next big thing in TV Sci-Fi, many people are going to be tempted to pick up this boxed set to find out how it all began. You can’t go wrong here – this represents astounding value for money, and a great opportunity to discover or rediscover a series that really does deserve its classic status. It even has some decent extras.
Battlestar Galactica was created in 1978 a year after the Star Wars, and was essentially a brazen attempt by ABC television to cash in on the mammoth unexpected success of that film. Under conditions that may never be repeated, it was suddenly considered viable to create a full-blown big-budget epic primetime family-oriented science fiction extravaganza with a budget of $1m per episode (big money in those days). The series ran for a total of 24 episodes before being canned due to its expense and sliding ratings, but it had a huge impact and is remembered with great fondness even by those who aren’t rabid fans.
The story draws inspiration from diverse mythical and religious sources, including Ancient Greek and Egyptian mythology, the book of Exodus, and the Mormon upbringing of its creator Glen A. Larson. When the 12 colonies of man are annihilated by the robotic Cylons, the only surviving Battlestar, Galactica, assembles a small fleet of dilapidated civilian ships and makes a run for it with the survivors, hoping to find the legendary 13th tribe who may have settled on a distant, mythical planet called Earth.

As others have noted, the first three episodes in this box set are joined together into a single long film, which is equivalent to the 1978 movie that's available as a separate purchase.

However, what's interesting is that the version in this box set is considerably longer than the separate release: I think about 9 or 10 minutes longer.

The most obvious difference is the presence of an Epilogue at the end that shows what happens to Baltar. However, there are other extra or longer scenes interwoven into the entire film, such as an explanation of where the Cylons came from (it wasn't humans who created them).

All in all, if you buy this box set, don't waste your money on the separate 1978 movie release as well. This version is 'the same but better'.

this is the entire original series of BSG from late 1970's. it looks a little dated now, with the sets and costumes (and a little dialogue), but overall it's still excellent by today's standards!
you have to overlook a couple of bouts of sheer silliness, (how does a kid (Boxey) get involved in serious military matters?, how come the Viper fighters need gyroscopes in space??), but overall, the series is ACE!!
For my money, one of the best characters in it is Baltar, played (with great relish) by John Colicos, the traitor to the human race. Later on in the series, he gets written out of a few storylines, but with guest appearances from the likes of Fred Astaire (Chameleon, in The Man with Nine Lives), and Lloyd Bridges (Cmdr. Cain, The Living Legend - My favourite episode), there is enough going on so that you don't get bored.
The last episode (Hand Of God) is a good place to end the series, as it answers the question whether the mythical "Earth" really exists. This being science fiction, you're never really sure if it's meant to be 'real', or just fiction - until the last scene.
;-)
Enjoy!

The Cylons agree to a peace treaty brokered through Baltor (evil eyebrows and everything). The Entire fleet from the 12 colonies goes out to meet, great and take the president to sign the treaty. Of course Adama isn't taking this at face value and as such is semi prepared - at least mentally - for the attack. In fact his son is one of the first casualties and as the rest of the fleet struggle to realise they're getting their bums kicked by the supposed peace seeking Cylons he is also the first to realise that the colonies are totally unprotected and trys to go help which is how his ship survives the innitial assault. This collection then follows the survivors through their escape to Earth visiting several plannets - and yes the Daggit is slightly annoying it doesn't really appear that much.
This is a fantastic buy the extras are also quite funny.
If you remember watching this as a child you can't help but still love it. The charactors are at times cheesily nice to each other and at others you think 'why are you even arguing about this?' But its still great. I saw nothing wrong with the special effects - its a 70's programme it has 70's effects - and the acting is very good.
- One question that lingers over this show is that if Baltor is aware (and the Cylons remind him several times) that the Cylons wish to destroy all humans - including him (which again he is told by the Cylon leader), why he keeps helping them when he could escape to go rule over some backward plannet?
