With remarkably consistent quality, each of these 13 episodes deepens the dynamics of these fascinating characters and suspenseful situations. While BG relies on finely nuanced performances, solid direction, and satisfying personal and political drama to build its strong emotional foundation, the action/adventure elements are equally impressive, especially in "The Hand of God," a pivotal episode in which the show's dazzling visual effects get a particularly impressive showcase. Original BG series star Richard Hatch appears in two politically charged episodes (he's a better actor now, too), and with the threat of civil war among the fleet, season 1 ends with an exceptional cliffhanger that's totally unexpected while connecting the plot threads of all preceding episodes. To the credit of everyone involved, this is frackin' good television.
The fifth disc in Battlestar Galactica's season 1 set is highlighted by eight comprehensive featurettes covering all aspects of the series, from its miniseries origins to standard surveys of production design, visual effects, and particulars of plot and character. For hardcore fans and anyone interested in TV production, nine out of 13 episodes, plus the disc 1 miniseries, are accompanied by intelligent and informative commentary originally provided as BG website podcasts, mostly by series developer and writer Ronald D. Moore, who provides tantalizing clues about developments in season 2. The "Series Lowdown" is a cast-and-crew promotional program originally broadcast to attract SciFi Channel viewers who were initially reluctant to embrace a "reimagined" Battlestar Galactica. The strategy worked: First-season ratings left no doubt that the new BG was as good as--and in many ways better than--the original. --Jeff Shannon

Maybe some think it's a good show but to us it was sort of depressing. Getting wiped out by some enemy and basically they are always going to be behind.Published 17 days ago by Julie Masters
One of the greatest television shows, ever.
There's really a reason why this has a cult following. Read more

|Battlestar Galactica vs. Babylon 5 - viewer interest||
Hi Terry. I love them both, but I think Bab 5 was far better produced and developed (like writing the overall story from begining to end before shooting starts) while the writing of Battlestar has a far more brutal edge to it, but production has got serious issues to the point fans are... Read More

|Is it suitable for family viewing?||
There isn't anything blatantly graphic that would, let's say, warrant an R rating in a movie theater. However, there is plenty of 'adult content': several sexual scenes (including adultery and an implied ongoing threesome), a great deal of alcohol abuse, characters who hallucinate, and some...
