Can't Beat the Original Posted by: from: Missouri on This is a great DVD to purchase, showing how it all started against the "Tin Cans". If you have never seen the original Battlestar Galactica, and wondered how the war between the Cylons and Colonials first began, this DVD is the place to start.

Hope the series is coming soon Posted by: from: Seattle, Wa on The blu ray edition of the 1978 theatrical cut of the original BSG looks and sounds amazing! The only drawback is some of the effects shots look very poor because of the processing the film elements went through back then. It would be great if Universal were able to go back and recomposite them like Paramount has been doing for The Next Generation. In either case, hopefully this version sells well enough to warrant a blu ray release for the entire series.

Old school Posted by: from: Ilinois on I'm a huge fan of the remade (2004) series, and I had seen the originals many years ago. I saw this on sale, so I had to grab it.

Blast from the past Posted by: from: Bay Area, CA on Love BSG old and new, this was a nice blast from the past and since I have the new complete series on Blu ray, I had to pick up the original series movie on Blu ray since that's the version I grew up on. No bonus features included, but picture quality and sound quality is surprisingly good considering it's from 1978, if this is a test to see if the complete original series should be released on Blu ray, I hope that Universal sells enough of these to warrant a high def release.

Good, but could've been better Posted by: from: Flagstaff, AZ on Picture and sound quality are great, especially considering this was TV show from the 70's. Just disappointed that there were no extras. I mean, at least a 20-minute TV special or something ought to have been included. There's enough material out there on the classic BSG for them to have been able to find something. I would've gladly paid $5 or $10 more for some documentaries, stills, out-takes, TV promos, etc.

At last.......The original Battlestar on Blu Posted by: from: Auburn, WA on This version is the U.S. release version of the 1978 movie (released in U.S. in 1979) The main difference being that Starbuck and Cassi's scene in the launch tube was changed due to the outcry from the Canadian prudes...LOL. The video I not (as# grainy as one would expect. The audio is very crisp and was remixed for Blu Ray using the same sound effects system that was used to create the "Sensurround" affect that was only used in a handful of Universal films. The VHS tape I have is in dolby stereo, ironically the DVD is in mono. My only gripe about the audio, although being wonderfully remastered in DTS, why couldn'tthey go for the full 5.1 as they did with the DVD series. Bonus features are lacking, as there are none. Perhaps on a future blu ray series release. It would nice to see the original ABC promos/bumpers. For those who like seeing those old trailers, you'll be disappointed. If memory serves, there never was an actual trailer for the movie #at least not for the 1979 release# There were several different 30 second TV spots. All of the mentioned promotional material you can see on youtube. Maybe Mr. Larson and Universal will release a series set #Just BSG, no G80# and give us some never before released goodies. Or perhaps even the 12 telefilms that were repackaged Galactica episodes. They never played those in my city. I would love to see them...but that's a story for another time. Shell out the $15 at Best Buy. #as of this writing, there were approx. 8 copies sent to each store but the bestbuy.com had placed them on backorder, currently a BB exclusive but will be in wider release this summer.
