Even though creator Ron Moore worked on multiple STAR TREK series, sci-fi fans expecting the millennial re-imagining of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA to have a similarly sunny outlook on the future didnt know what they were in for. Theres no Federation here; in fact, humans are alone, and after a genocidal attack by robots called Cylons, there arent even that many of them left. The expectations of the original series fans were also subverted by a key casting change: the rogue pilot Starbuck, originally played by Dirk Benedict, would now be a woman (Katee Sackhoff), but she would lose none of her predecessors bravado. The smart casting also extended to the series leads: Oscar nominee Edward James Olmos stars as the military leader of the human fleet, while the acclaimed actress Mary McDonnell plays the civilian president. As the human survivors try to battle the Cylons, who are led by the sexy Six (former model Tricia Helfer), they are also in search of Earth, which may or not be a myth. Though the story of robots rebelling against their human creators has been told before, it rarely has as much grit, grime, and grace as it does with BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. This collection includes every episode from the entire epic series.

TV doesn't get any better than this. Stunning series.

I love this show.

It will get lower - its advertied as having items it doesnt and is just a re-packaged version of the DVD box sets. Not re-mastered or anything. And a complete complete set (with the plan) is due next year.

But you don't really need to watch "The Plan" as you've seen most of it anyway. All they've done is lifted 90% from footage already aired and then shot a few extra scenes and edited them in. "The Plan" doesn't really explain anything and misses out the big questions such as what happened to Starbuck and what she became, Baltar and Six - what were they? etc. "The Plan" is frakking dissapointment!

I would not say that The Plan is 90% previously aired footage, but there is a fair bit of recylcing.

And whilst I agree it does not answer any of the questions you mentioned, it is still worth a watch.

A suprising amount of full-on nudity and a pretty frakked up scene with Dean Cain.

Who'd have thought that the man who controlled Ziggy and helped Sam Beckitt out with wisdom from all his previous marriages could have turned out to be such a I3astard? lol

I love this show, I'm onto series 4 now and watch and hooked on it.

Series 3 was a bit poor but 1, 2 and 4 are excellent, i'm just disappointed i've only got 1 1/2 more series to go then it's all over
