From the Back Cover
In the deepest reaches of space, the fight to save all human life from extinction has begun in this science fiction adventure that launched the Battlestar Galactica phenomenon! Hopeful for lasting peace following centuries of intense warfare, the Twelve Colonies gather to sign a treaty with their dreaded enemies, The Cylons. But after an act of treachery on the eve of the ceremony, the Cylons launch a devastating surprise attack, destroying the Colonies' home planets and most of their military strength. A lone flagship battlestar, the Galactica, remains to aid the surviving colonists on their epic journey for a new home to a far-off legendary planet--Earth. They must survive the pursuing Cylons in a series of epic battles that will determine the fate of the human race in this non-stop action-packed classic filled with cutting-edge special effects by John Dykstra ("Star Wars," "Spider-Man").

So lets start with the basics: Overall as far as story goes, the really good episodes are:
Saga of the Star World (pilot episode)
Lost Planet of the Gods pt.1-2
Living Legend pt.1-2
War of the Gods pt. 1-2
Hand of God
Which to be honest, every fan of this series are going to say that these are the best episodes, they're not wrong, it just there are some good ones in between that you should check out to like
The Long Patrol
Fire in Space
Heck you can throw in Guns on Ice Planet Zero pt.1-2 and
Murder on the Rising Star
Sometimes that plot can be thin in some place, and lets be honest, not big on continuity, its one of those cases that if you over think it, you won't enjoy it, so if you really want to enjoy this series, don't think about it, just watch!
Second the acting is what you can expect from a '70's tv show, full of melodrama and pretty hair,annoying extras annoying kid actors, and even more annoying daggits, but I give Richard Hatch, Dirk Benedict, and Herb Jefferson Jr. their just dues. And I have much love for Lorene Greene, he truly was the anchor for the other actors around him.(I had a major crush on Richard Hatch, the green eyes had me, and the triad uniforms offered great titilation for a pubecent 15 year old girl.)
Third the special effects are impressive for a show with made with stone age techniques, you can tell when the production ran out of money because some of the scences of the vipers flying repeat over and over again. You are just wishing that they would do something new.
Overall despite the camp I enjoyed myself, just like I did when I saw the show the first time and I enjoyed it again many years later as part of my DVD collection.

I was surprised; really enjoyed this sci fi show from the Star Wars era. Too bad the costs to make it were so high and there was only one season.
