Battlestar Galactica ('04)

4 Seasons

Season 2
4.7 out of 5 stars (449) IMDb 8.7/10

The critically acclaimed science fiction hit series returns for its second season. Picking up where the first season left off, "Battlestar Galactica ('04)" continues to chronicle the adventures of a ragtag fleet of humans, the sole survivors of a devastating nuclear attack by the robot Cylons. Faced with an un-winnable battle against a deadly enemy, they are forced to flee under the protection of their one remaining warship, the outdated Battlestar Galactica. Academy-Award nominated actors Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell return as Commander Adama and President Roslin, who must lead these last remnants of humanity in search of a new home - a planet called Earth.

The previous reviewer gave one star because his download speed was slow. That's truly sad to give this show a rating like that when his "problem" had nothing to do with the show. FYI: My download speeds have been at a fast 6640kbps. Anyway on to the show.

If you love SciFi this is a show worth watching, much better than the original. Currently you can download Battlestar Galactica: The Story So Far for free. That should give you an idea of what you're in for. Enjoy!

I love the series. Have watched the dvds many times. I purchased a blu ray player and wanted the series to start my library.

Many Blu Rays have the problem that you cannot stop an episode and then play/resume. The disc will restart at the disc menu. This is incredibly trying for a series where episode content is 5 hours. Other problem seems to be specific of Universal Studios, they have their own screen saver that comes on and then the disc will not accept any functions, you have to turn off/on and start over. The problem seems to be the BR-Java discs which are being used more often to accomodate all those extra menus and special features. For the added cost of equipment and discs, this should not be an issue. Same problem on Sony and Panasonic players, haven't tried it on an Oppo player yet.

The series Blu Ray image transfer is great, a bit grainy, but that was the effect the series wanted. Darker night/space/dark inside ship scenes are more grainy. Season 2 and season 4 come with all episodes, not half seasons.

I am happy, OTHER THAN the issue that seems to plague most blu rays.

Really builds on Season 1. BSG continue to tackle epic philosophical questions by breaking them down to an individual, human scale, and the result is addictive. This season really explores the tension between military and civilian models of government, and culminates with an examination of the downfalls of democratic rule - Roslin must choose between what's morally right and what will be best for the people. That probably sounds kinda boring. It's not. It pulls you in and won't let go - you just can't stop watching. The classic up-close and personal, warts and all BSG filming style makes everything seem immediate and urgent. The focus on ongoing character development of Adama, Roslin, Tigh, Apollo, Starbuck, and Baltar, as well as many supporting characters, means the show is always moving forward. Space battles continue to be epic, with brilliant use of CGI shaky-cam that can never quite keep up with the Vipers. It feels so real, it's almost more like news footage than CGI! Definitely one of my all-time favorite shows.

A person here gave a one star rating because he found out after watching the first season that it has 4 seasons? Really? He also said it was good. What a knucklehead!
This is probably THE best sci-Fi TV series ever. It has all you might want: action, murder, betrayal, love, sex, ambition, politics, hate, racism, intolerance and forgiveness. It is an epic series and should be watched by anyone who is interested in humanity.

The casting is spot on and the acting spectacular. You will love these characters. I first watched the entire series on my laptop right after it had finished airing on TV in 2009.
I was unaware of it during its actual airing. So this was a great find, having been viewing it once or twice a year since and finding new meanings with each watching. It is one of those series you will want to rewatch right after you finish it with your draw dropped.

Oh, and there are FOUR seasons. You will want to watch every one.
