    Warning! Spoilers ahead!

    Buying all of this incredible series on DVD is a more confusing undertaking than it ought to be. Grouping both halves of Season Two into this single package definitely simplifies things somewhat. The set also comes with a friendlier price than when each half was sold separately.

    BATTLESTAR GALACTICA after three seasons has established a critical reputation unprecedented in the history of TV Sci-fi. A host of mainstream reviewers and publications have named it not merely the best Sci-fi series on TV, but the best series of any genre. And we are not talking low-profile critics and publications. At one time or another TV Guide, Ken Tucker, Rolling Stone, the New York Times, Matt Roush, the Chicago Tribune, Maureen Ryan, the San Francisco Chronicle, Entertainment Weekly, and a host of others have praised the show as the best on TV. It was only one of two shows to make the American Film Institute's list of the Ten Best Shows on TV two years in a row. To top it all off, in 2006 it won a prestigious Peabody Award. And all this for a Sci-fi series!

    But there has never before been Sci-fi like this. Normally Sci-fi TV is associated with escapist entertainment, clever perhaps at its best, but never truly challenging. A few series have previously challenged this, in particular FIREFLY and FARSCAPE, but all other series to some degree kept looking over their shoulders at imagined teen viewers, determined never to get either very dark or very outrageous. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA was the first Sci-fi series targeted more at intelligent grown ups than young male teens (even if those "teens" were in their thirties or forties).

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great series but spare me the ads August 23, 2007
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I started watching Battlestar Galactica last year in snippets as I channel surfed during commercial breaks or boring sequences on other programs. After the third or 4th time, I stuck with the program to the end. Shortly thereafter I added it to my DVR scheduled recordings. When I saw the earlier seasons were available on DVD, I ordered seasons 1, 2 and 2.5. The mini-series "movie" (on season 1 DVD knocked my socks off and I've been savoring the episodes ever since.

    The first season DVD came without ads or trailers. Season 2.0 is chocked full of ads. I'm a purist and prefer my purchased entertainment come sans extra crud. If you want me to watch commercials, reduce the price. Still, I realize that most people couldn't care less, so have given the series the full 5 stars for it's innovative style, engrossing plot, spectacular special effects and solid performances. This is what science fiction should be like...

    Enjoy.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the best show on current T.V. September 8, 2007
    Format:DVD
    On my review on Battlestar Galactica season 1 I said it was the most engaging show on television. For Season 2 i want to focus on 2 reasons why its the most engaging.

    Jamie Bamber- My favorite character on BG is Cpt. Lee Adama (potrayed by British Actor Jamie Bamber). Now I have never seen any other work with this fine actor so how could i possibly be such a huge fan of his? If you were ever in a relationship when your father was an important figure you will instantly understand his dilemna. A son that tried hard to become more than his father's shadow is a time old situation and one that has been thoroughly debated over the course of time. Lee Adama not only personfies this but puts you in his very shoes. He potrays this role to perfection, he is so convincing you wonder how he finds the motivation to pull off his lines with such poetic justice. He brings a side to this show that makes you believe, even though it is a sci fi show, it resonates the very struggle between human life and conflicts, he is a major reason to watch this show.

    Katie Sackoff- the remake of BG caught much flack at first because of loud mouth, wise cracking Starbuck is portrayed as a female character instead of a male lead. The only role i saw her play before this was the eager college girl she played in haloween resurrection. Katie took the role of loud mouth, cigar toting Starbuck and made it as it was hers to begin with. She brings such a humanizing effect to this role that it simply outshines most other actors not only in this show, but any show on TV.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Thought provoking sci-fi has arrived on Earth May 12, 2007
    Format:DVD
    While the shards of humanity are traversing the galaxy in search of Earth, the producers, cast and actors of Battlestar Galactica have brought thought provoking science fiction to this pale blue dot. The top notch cast of accomplished actors and relative unknowns blend together seamlessly producing stories with a cutting edge, with applicability to today's problems. You see the fledgling president cut her teeth on tough issues, buck up against a distrustful but honorable military leader and the issues it produces. Starring such A-list actors as Mary McDonnell and Edward James Olmos, they raise the level of play and while there are effects the story and characters are the centerpience. Even the bad guy cylons (skin jobs, not the toasters) are complex and multi-faceted. Season Two was terrific, season three unbelievable and I really can't wait to see where these talented, visionaries take us to next year. Try it out, guaranteed to catch and hold your attention -- and at times, your breath.

    I guess 3rd party seller doesn't want to sell their copy.
    I see this all the time on amazon, freakin sellers wanting outrageous amounts for things I know I can pickup in the store or on dare I say Overstock.com for far less. Amazon needs to put price caps on the sellers of these items, a reasonable markup for something rare I can understand 20-30% more... Read More
