Unlike some other territories which are releasing Battlestar Galactica as Season 4.0 and Season 4.5, the UK are following Sky1s broadcast transmission, whereby the first 10 episodes are Season 4 with the remainder next year as The Final Season, a sneak peek of which is featured on the Season 4 DVD release.
Battlestar Galactica balances its striking special effects with character-driven drama and social commentary to create a show that's both entertaining and relevant. This critical favourite re-imagines the cult series from the 1970s with a new cast and more impressive villains. It also eschews the sunny outlook of Star Trek in favor of a darker vision of space and humanity as it comments on issues such as terrorism and civil liberties. Androids called Cylons have massacred billions of people, leaving only a small group of survivors. Led by Oscar nominees Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell, the human fleet searches for a mythical planet called Earth as they evade the Cylons. Features the first four series of the show, which includes the Battlestar Galactica mini-series and the extended episode 'Razor.'
