Disc Replacement Program 6-4-15 Posted by: from: Central Wisconsin's Paradise on There is missing footage during the episode, THE MAGNIFICENT WARRIORS, on disc 3 of the widescreen version of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA - on both the Remastered Collection and Definitive Collection. The issue is being fixed and consumers can get a replacement disc by emailing USHEConsumerRelations@visionmediamgmt.com. Consumers should include: 1 - "Battlestar Galactica Classic Collection: BD" in the subject line of their email, 2 - the following text in the body of the email, "I would like to receive a replacement disc for (Disc 3, Episode "The Magnificent Warriors")." Within 24-48 hours, consumers will get a response asking for their mailing address in the United States or Canada. Shortly thereafter, they will receive a postage-paid envelope for them to mail in their disc with the missing footage from THE MAGNIFICENT WARRIORS. 2-3 weeks later they will receive a replacement disc with the complete episode. Thanks to tvshowsondvd.com for their 6-4-15 posting. In my opinion, regarding video quality. 1 - Full Screen version - very good but not excellent. 2 - Widescreen version - below average (and it appears as if was re-mastered by someone other than those who re-mastered the full screen version). Even at $79, I wouldn't say it's worth it nor would I recommend the widescreen version based on picture quality. If this is updated in the future, it will be posted under comments as Best Buy doesn't allow these reviews to be edited once posted.

loved this series as a child! Posted by: from: on I remember this series when I was a small child. The cylons were the coolest. This is the original series. I hated the remake of this series.

Nice box set with every thing from the original. Posted by: from: on I went to the well one last time for this. The main reason is because it has every thing from the original 70's era. Great for anyone starting to collect the series. Only down side is they could have spent a little more on the out side package. (Like the did on the original package the first time the series was issued on DVD) I am the kind of collector who does not mind spending a little more for a great package.

By Your Command Posted by: from: on The original Battlestar Galactica series in full screen and widescreen format in blu-ray. The Definitive collection also has the movie that started it all, what more could you ask for? It has seasons 1-3 so you will have hours of entertainment with family and friends. Looks better than the DVD version I bought years ago. I would highly recommend this collection to all Sci-fi fans. For the fans that bought the Definitive and the Re-mastered collection, disc three of the widescreen version of Battlestar Galactica series, there is missing footage during the episode, THE MAGNIFICENT WARRIORS. To get a free replacement disc three, go up to digital bits website to get the information on the replacement program.

Excellent show, one of the best Posted by: from: on Excellent show ahead of it's time. Excellent writing early on in the series, no wonder it was in the top ten in ratings when it premiered. Excellent extras in this box set, did not realize how many deleted scenes there were.

The only Battlestar Galactica choice... Posted by: from: on The major advantage of this set over the "remastered collection," is the inclusion of the series in its original aspect ratio (OAR) and the 1979 movie theater version culled from the TV pilot and first episode. Oddly, the widescreen versions do not look nearly as pleasing as the OAR discs and their inclusion here is superfluous. Buy this set and skip the cheaper but less pleasing "remastered collection."

Classic Sci-Fi Revisited! Posted by: from: NY on "Frak" the rest, this release is the best!!! Picked up my set at the local Best Buy last week, since they actually had the best price for this set ($5 less than Amazon). Only got through the contents of the first disc so far, but am impressed by the remastered picture and sound quality. It's definitely an improvement over the older DVD set. This "definitive" edition that comes in the RED COLORED BOX is the version to get if you want to watch it in its original broadcast ratio 1.33:1 (this set also includes the "widescreen" (cropped) version, but being a purist, I'm going to stick to the full frame version). The series still holds up amazingly well, and yes, the battle scenes get repetitive as the series goes on, but I suppose that's part of the charm. A childhood favorite of mine, now to be enjoyed with my own kids...thanks Universal for producing this set!!!

The Best BSG experience Posted by: from: on Forget the recent remake series that could never seem to figure out how it was going to go. If you want a great BSG experience, then this is the box set to get. This box set has the original movie, the complete series, and the Galatica 1980 follow-on (which while not as good as the original still had some great moments). Solid space and ground action, great stories, great characters richly acted out and a wonderful family dynamic in the form of the Adama family - Adama, Apollo, Athena, Boxey and informally adopted member Starbuck. AL in updated 1080P widescreen resolution.

Good remaster, could be better Posted by: from: on The 4:3 presentation as an excellent scan from the film, and is worth the price of admission on this set. The 16:9 presentation is okay, but there are still some pixel artifacts in the opening titles of the pilot. Great special features, and it is still the best it has ever looked to date.
