One of the best shows on television looks better than ever as Battlestar Galactica: Season One arrives on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def. Relive all 13 thrilling episodes plus the four-hour miniseries that started it all in this four-disc set. When a surprise Cylon attack scatters the remnants of humanity throughout the galaxy, it’s up to steely President Laura Roslin (Mary McDonnell) and battle-hardened Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos) to unite the desperate survivors and seek mankind’s only chance for a future, a mythical planet called Earth. Presented in 1080p with Dolby DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 and showcasing U-Control™ features that allow you to go deeper into the BSG universe, Battlestar Galactica: Season One on Blu-ray™ Hi-Def is gripping drama that explores the human condition at its worst…and its best.

One thing though: I didn't realize this until after I saw the TV series, but the Battlestar Galactica "Miniseries" (listed in a seperate place in amazon) comes before the first episode of season 1. It makes more sense if you see the miniseries first, which is just about two or three hours long in total.
The drama involves a "handful" (about 50,000) of humans surviving the attack and extermination by Cylons, intelligent "chrome toasters", created by the same humans. The Cylons have evolved, a lot of them now look like humans and they have infiltrated the fleet of surviving ships...
What follows is a long confrontation between the humans and their creations, from the battlefield to the bedroom, and the consequent dramatic outcomes are endless and fascinating. Meanwhile, the human race is fighting for its survival and against its eradication, in search of an elusive new world to reestablish itself. A new world called Earth...
After the first season, you are entitled to believe that the following seasons will be about the "getting there" - if "there" actually exists - and many more confrontations between man and robot. There's also the complex road to follow to reorganize society as it were, with politics and its ugliness, command and rebellions. Everything and everybody clashes at some point, it's inevitable.
The writing of this show is smart and mature (by the way, this is not a family show), and so is the vast cast, excellent from top to bottom.
As a woman, I particularly appreciate the "bimbo-free" environment. Even Number 6, the "most beautiful woman in the universe" and a highly sexual being, is far from being a "blonde". The sense of gender equality is real and gives some serious food for thought. The most important character to my opinion is the misbehaved pilot Kara Thrace, a.k.a. Starbuck, who smokes cigars and throws some serious punches. She is tough and promiscuous, and men can't resist her. Hard not to love!
Years after it came out on TV, and months after the whole series ended, I decided to investigate what Battlestar was about after I read an article somewhere about how important this series is for the genre. It definitely brings it to the "serious and complex" categorie, away from air shows with guys in silly outfits and ridiculous looking aliens. The complex plot and the human drama is appealing to any viewer, even those outside the usual fanclub of the genre.
Special mentions also have to be given to the great soundtrack/score, and the overall style and cinematography.
A must see!
