I'm just gonna break this down into some simple questions:

*****Is this show any good?*****
This new BATTLESTAR GALACTICA series is phenomenal. I really enjoyed the original series that was released in the late '70s, but the new Sci-Fi show is some of the finest TV around. The action sequences are gritty and exciting. The cast & performances are excellent, with few actors taking a while to find their niche. The strongest & weakest aspect is the writing. There are episodes of dramatic brilliance, which propel this show to greatness. There are a few small patches where the series meanders a bit, but even when BSG isn't at the top of its game, it's playing for keeps. In the end, the show constantly evolves its characters and story.

*****Amazon advertises a "Season 3.0"; Where is 3.5?*****
There is no such thing as Season 3.5. Basically, Amazon screwed up. This exclusive offer will include the complete third season. Seasons Two and Four are split into two separate box sets. The bottom line is this: you will get every BATTLESTAR GALACTICA DVD released to date - No More, No Less.

*****What's the deal with RAZOR?*****
This 2-hour made-for-TV feature first aired, and was released on DVD, in November 2007. It takes place between Seasons Two and Three. Oddly enough, RAZOR will be included with the Season 4.0 DVD in January 2009. Either way, you'll get the original version that aired on TV, as well as the longer Unrated Cut.

*****Is this a good price?*****
As of this writing, Amazon is listing this exclusive packaging for $147. If the price doesn't change, then this will save you about 30 dollars. Because RAZOR will be included in the Season 4.0 DVD in January, collectors will only save about $15.

I can't grasp how anyone could give this less than five stars. A substantial portion of one of television's all time greatest series at an incredibly great price. For comparison, I paid $164 for what will now cost newcomers $99 (the price seems to fluctuate from day to day). That is quite a deal. All you would then need to do is buy Season 4.0 and you are completely caught up.

And there is no faulting the quality of the series. A few middle-aged individuals passionately devoted to the original BSG that appeared in 1978 with Lorne Greene in the lead role -- and widely considered by TV critics to be one of the absolutely worst series in the history of TV (as well as by serious Sci-fi fans -- here is a passage from the most widely respected one-volume encyclopedia of Sci-fi, THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SCIENCE FICTION, edited by John Clute and Peter Nichols: "Perhaps the least likable of al tv sf in its ineptness, its sentimentality and its contempt for an ignorance of science" -- the original series has also been lambasted by such Sci-fi icons as Harlan Ellison and Orson Scott Card, both of whom are passionate fans of the new series). So, right away you know that the "reimagined" BATTLESTAR GALACTICA is unusual. What other TV masterpiece has been created on the corpse of an aesthetic horror story? The new series is only tacitly related to the old series. It takes a few of the characters' names, the design of a few of the ships, and the initial premise, and substituted for everything else one of the most riveting, moving, and imaginative stories ever seen on television.

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was the first series to appear on TV that purported to tell a single story. The miniseries first appeared in 2003 and Season One began in 2004.

The Cost vs the Costs

I am not the type of person who normally does reviews. However, I saw the one star review and decided to post about it. First, if you have never seen Battlestar Galatica and scared of tin can and hokey one liners - forget what ever you think. THIS IS THE BEST DRAMA SHOW of all time. If you are a DIE HARD fan who refuses to look at the show because Starbuck is a woman or Baltar is some hip intelligent character; trust me, its better!

If you are missing this in your DVD collection, it is well worth it. And if not for me, then think of the 6s and 4s who you would be missing out on. Trust me, you will want to see the Pegasus and her episodes.

Verified Purchase
While I bought this series for my 19 year-old son, I have been thoroughly enjoying watching it as well. The depth of characters and plot make for an enthralling fantasy experience. My only disappointment is that the final season is released in parts (4.0 was just recently released)so those final few episodes will have to be purchased separately. Otherwise, I can't think of a better way to spend TV time than watching this series - it's addictive!!

Battlestar Galactica Franchise Collection in Blu-Ray?
Well, since Amazon is no longer selling the exclusive set, that can mean a number of things.

1. The producers are getting ready with a new collection that will cover the entire series (Whether that will include Battlestar Galactica: The Plan" would be a matter of speculation). So,... Read More
